Yahoo unveils a new draft interface
Held our league's fantasy football draft last night and was surprised to find Yahoo was using a brand new draft client for live online drafts. Putting players in your draft queue is now a matter of dragging and dropping. Graphics are a lot snazzier, and a smorgasbord of statistics are presented right there in the draft window. (In years past, I've always kept another window open to peruse stats on player pages.) A chime now sounds to let you know it's your pick. (And it's a pleasant chime, as opposed to the ear-splitting, coma-ending "NOW IT'S YOUR TURN!!!!" that Mock Draft Central uses.) I'm sure there were even more tweaks, variations and additions. What else did you Yahoo football drafters notice?
