If you've done a mock draft for the #BNFL I thought it might be fun to post the results of what you got here. Rather than being productive with my life, I did one this morning and got this:

Carlos Ruiz - C
Ryan Howard - 1B
Daneil Murphy - 1B/2B/3B
Erick Aybar - SS
Chipper Jones - 3B
Lance Berkman - OF
Ichiro - OF
Josh Willingham - OF
Todd Helton - UTIL
Roy Halladay - SP
James Shields - SP
Jaime Garcia - SP
Edwin Jackson - SP
Rick Porcello - SP
Jose Valverde - RP
Maro Estrada - RP

Miguel Olivo - C/Bench
Yuniesky Betancourt - SS/Bench
Marlon Byrd - OF/Bench
Carlos Quentin - OF/Bench (probably UTIL)
Freddy Garcia - SP/Bench

Ive done a couple and I'm surprised how little the computer gives to pitching, especially relief pitching. Remover this is a five person keeper and drafting prospects does have done benefits

It looks like you get pretty deep roster. I was thinking I would have to draft Ronnie Cedeno or even worse Theriot

They computer is really stupid. I think the actual draft is going to be a lot better because people are smarter than the computer on there, so people may really have to start getting bottom of the barrel players.

Yea the computer drafts the top player on the board no matter who it is.

Everyone please understand that you keep 5 players before next years draft which means 125 players will not be available so draft wisely

Agreed it was hard to find the top relief pitchers and I found that 2 minutes might not be enough time

Thats why it is important to do the mock drafts, it will give you a good idea of the players that will be available during your pick, so when the actual draft comes you will know who you want to get.

Wait, so we can draft prospects? I didn't see that in the league rules.

If they are on the 40 man roster I believe they show up, so check and see if they are on the draft board. Remember this is a long term keeper league so each year you keep five guys so if you draft the next Pujols you can keep him his entire career.

Actually you can draft minor leaguers too I saw Trevor Bauer in the draft and he is on the D-Backs single-A team.

Bauer is on the 40 man. He got a major league deal coming out of the 2011 draft.
