June is a tough month.  There isn’t much to get excited for on the sports front, especially if you’re a BYU Football fan.

This off-season has been much slower than previous ones, and that is a good thing.  No news is good news, right?  But it sure has made the countdown to Cougar Football even longer than usual.

So what does a group of 10 men, who clamor for anything BYU do in these doldrum months?  Simple.  A 24-round BYU Football Fantasy Draft.  Now we’re talking!  This will be some good old fashion fun.

  • All BYU Football players who have lettered in the program are eligible to be drafted.
  • Draft 24 players. Fielding a starting lineup.
  • 1 QB, 2 RB, Combination of 3 WR/TE, 5 OL, 3 DL, 4 LB, 2 CB, 2 Safeties, 1 Kicker, 1 Punter
