Last night was the 2011 NLL Draft in Toronto, Ontario. With the Rochester Knighthawks holding the first pick, here is how the draft went.
#1- Kinghthawks- Cody Jaimeson
I don't think many people were surprised by this pick. For more info on Jaimeson, read this.
#2- Blazers- Kyle Rubisch
A defender, and the best one in the draft. No surprise the Blazers drafted him, they need someone to replace Paul Dawson.
#3- Roughnecks- Curtis Dickson
Again, not a real surprise. For more on Dickson, read this.
#4- Swarm- Andrew Suiter
Suiter, a smiler player to Rory Smith, will fit right in Minnesota's defensive plans.
#5- Knighthawks- Jarret Davis
Davis ripped up the WLA, and is a pro-ready offensive player who should fit right in with Rochester.
#6- Roughnecks- Dan McRae
A defender who improved his stock in the MSL this summer, he may be the best all around defensman in the draft someday.
#7- Blazers- David Brock
A two-way player, big time goal scorer.
#8- Roughnecks- Brian Ivey
Kind of a surprising first round pick here, Ivey may have impressed the 'Necks at the Minto Cup.
#9- Bandits- Travis Irving
Perfect Buffalo type of player, a big strong defender.
#10- Knighthawks- Ryan McLelland
Has played in almost every other pro lacrosse league, but I don't know where he fits in the K'Hawks plans.
