Devy Draft Slots in a Startup

Hey all, so I've joined my first Devy SF league and there will be a 2 round Devy draft each year. In the startup, 2019 rookies are to be included however we will be holding a separate Devy draft afterwords. In the startup, Devy slots 1.01-1.24 are available and give you the slot for both rounds (i.e. drafting 1.01 gives you 1.01 and 2.01). I'm wondering where Devy picks normally go in startups as I have no experience with the format. Obviously 1.01 should turn into Trevor Lawrence in Superflex, but when is that pick likely to go?

Thanks for any help!

This may be a little late of a response so apologies, but normally with this scenario you'd have to take each individual pick you want in the startup. Example: If you wanted rookie 1.01 and Devy 1.01 you'd have to select them as separate picks in the startup and that doesn't guarantee you rookie 2.01,3.01,4.01 etc and Devy 2.01, 3.01, 4.01 etc.

I'd suggest to the commish to have it be that each pick is fluid and pickable and it's not a scenario where you get the full slew of picks just by picking the slot you want.

If that is going to be how it is, you will probably have to take the draft slot earlier than you want to honestly because your 1 startup now guarantees you multiple draft picks.

I recently completed a 12 team superflex devy startup with IDP and separate rookie and devy drafts and rookie 1.01 went 5.07 (55 overall) and Devy went 7.09 (81 overall) but we had each pick on their own available.
