I believe most of the top talents in this draft will go in the first 50 picks, because otherwise it will be tough to pay them. Most of the second-tier high school players who are willing to sign for $500,000 to $750,000 will go in the second and third rounds, for the same reason. After that, I envision a lot of college and junior college players in rounds 4-10.

Jim Callis on the new draft rules from latest Ask BA. He also suggests that the two main strategies for freeing up extra money under the new cap rules will be (1) taking players earlier than expected who will sign at a discount and (2) taking college seniors who will sign well below slot in rounds 4-10.
