a perfect way to handle this situation would be to cancel the draft and make the draft age 19 for everyone. that way players eligible for the 2005 draft would simply all go together in the 2006 draft. i think all agree 18 is too young to be drafted anyway. this would be the perfect opportunity. drafting 18 year olds is simply too hit and miss and it shouldn't be that way. if the draft age were 19, yes, some players would still bust, but i would argue that the numbers of "bustees" would not be as great. the only potential draftees who would be effected would be the ncaa players who would then be drafted at age 20 instead of 19. this would be the best way of effecting the fewest possible potential draftees.
