Exactly. That was its original purpose. And that's how it functions at its best. At its worse, it's a draft of the 'next best', a designation which is confirmed by that pick not getting promoted in future main ATDs.

So, don't worry about making the now-popular pick or 'winning' the MLD. Dig and find and profile some guys who were undeservingly overlooked. Show what makes them valuable in an all-time context. There's always guys who get drafted in the 15th-20th rounds of the MLD who end up more valuable than guys who were drafted in rounds 1-5. That's almost unheard of in the ATD but common in the MLD.
