ROCK PREPARE FOR 2007 NLL ENTRY DRAFT

The National Lacrosse League will hold the 2007 Entry Draft at the Pepsi Center, home of the Colorado Mammoth in Denver Colorado on Saturday September 1st at 4:00 p.m. EST.

Fans can watch the draft online through a live free webcast at www.nll.com on any computer with a high-speed internet connection and Windows Media Player 9 or higher.

The July 31st trade between the Rock and Boston which brought Brian Croswell to Toronto in exchange for a third and a fifth round selection in the 2007 Entry Draft has been voided due to a season ending injury Brian sustained playing lacrosse this summer. As a result, the Rock take back these picks for Saturday’s draft.

The Toronto Rock will have five selections in this year’s draft:
First Round-11th overall
Second Round-7th selection (21st overall)
Third Round-7th selection (35th overall)
Fourth Round-7th selection (49th overall)
Fifth Round-7th selection (63rd overall)

With a new Boston franchise entering the League, putting the team count up to fourteen, the divisional alignment for the upcoming 2008 season results in Boston joining the Eastern Division for a total of eight teams and the West Division remains at six clubs. The 2008 NLL season schedule will be announced at a later date.

New for this year, the Entry Draft follows a combine for top draft-eligible players in North America on August 30th and 31st. The top prospects are invited to come out and participate in various physical tests, clinics and drills and a combine game as well as meet with coaches and GM’s from various teams in the League.
