    ORG Weekly Discussion #1 - Recent Reds' Draft Picks

    Welcome to the inaugural Old Red Guard weekly discussion thread! This will be a new idea implemented for this forum to help promote discussion and recognize high-quality contributions.

    Discussion will be expected to remain on the topic posted in the initial post of the thread. Readers are encouraged to like posts that they feel are quality contributions to the discussion at hand. After one week, the RedsZone member who has the post with the most likes will be recognized in the thread, and the user will have a trophy posted in their user signature with a link to the post that was identified as the best contribution to the weekly discussion.

    For our first discussion, the topic will be recent Reds' draft picks. Discussion might contain analysis of draft trends, how the previous draft picks worked out, ways that the Reds could succeed or fail in the 2018 draft, or any related information. Here are the Reds first round picks from 2004 (the year that Homer Bailey was drafted). I apologize for formatting errors; if anyone can make this more readable, please let me know!
