The idea is the same at the B2B draft: We will read all of your comments about each one of these names in our boards and we will draft with a mythical $1 million each next Monday. So you have five days to weigh in.
Like last time, we expect to rely heavily on your comments, which were incredibly helpful when we drafted the B2Bers.
