Revisiting the NLL entry draft


This fall’s NLL entry draft day was certainly eventful. At noon on draft day, the New York Titans were officially unveiled to the press at a rooftop restaurant across the street from Madison Square Garden. The actual draft was held at the Madison Square Garden theatre and was open to the public. Over 50 potential draftees traveled from locations in the US and Canada in hopes of being called to the podium by an NLL team. In the days leading up to the draft, a blockbuster deal moved the number one pick from New York to San Jose. As well, on the day before the draft came the news that potential superstar Athan Ianucci was denied his eligibility waiver by the NCAA and was therefore available to the NLL. Many felt that he could knock off Geoff Snider as the number one pick.
