The team conducted its annual Big Ten fantasy football draft Monday afternoon. See who senior writer Tom Dienhart, editor Sean Merriman, statistician Harold Shelton, programmer Tommy Thiel, video coordinator Wes White and senior editor Brent Yarina picked and where in this post.

Here's how this worked: Each team picked a QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, K, Defense, and the (snaking) draft went in alphabetical order of surname. We drafted using standing scoring settings (4 points for passing TD; 6 points for rushing/receiving/defensive TD; 1 point per 25 passing yards; 1 point per 10 rushing/receiving yards; 1 point per XP; 3 points per FG; etc).
