Bloom Top 100 Part 3
By Sigmund Bloom
April 25th, 2011

Draft season means rookie draft season, which some of us look forward to as much playing out the regular season in our dynasty leagues. This year's draft is going to be kind to folks looking for running backs or a "future of the franchise" QB. It's thin on blue chip linebacker prospects and high ceiling receiving TEs. The Bloom 100 is back for another year to try to sort out ranking the entire for deep PPR IDP leagues and provide some food for thought for anyone evaluating the next wave of talent to enter the league.

Be sure to listen to all of Cecil Lammey's draft coverage live at Radio City Music Hall for his station 102.3 The Ticket in Denver. Matt Waldman and I will be broadcasting live for two hours from 10 pm eastern to midnight on our normal Thursday night live edition of the The Audible during the first round to give you our thoughts on the night's events.
