First of all, I think this is going to be the best draft in WWE history, from the point of view of the beneficiaries -  whoever they may be. I think there will be major changes at mid card level with the odd diva swap and possibly one or two main event surprises. There will be no teams broken up as there are only two in WWE anyway! These picks include the draft which will be broadcasted on tv only.

Pick # 1 :  Morrisson to Raw
Everybody has  been saying it. JoMo is more hollywood and entertainment(still a phenomenal wrestler) and therefore will fit in with VKM's entertainment show, i.e Raw.
This will also bring us one step closer to the feud we all want to see, JoMo vs Miz.

Pick # 2: Ziggler to Raw
Again, Ziggler would fit in to an entertainment environment better than his current role on Smackdown.

Pick # 3   Matt Hardy to Raw
Hardy has gone stale on Smackdown due to injury and constant poor creative plans. I hope Hardy goes to Raw and ressurects his 'I will not die' gimmick and he's given a US Title run and a feud with Christian.

Pick # 4  Edge to Raw
This one makes sense. Edge's talents have been utilised on SD for long enough. Its time to send him to Raw and become the new face of WWE(which won't happen as long as Cena is alive). Stick him in a programme with Punk or HHH before a reunion or rivalry with Christian.

Pick # 5 Orton to Smackdown
Many of you will not agree with this but Orton on Raw has become stale.(due to retarded creative booking) A babyface Orton on SD would freshen things up in the title picture on both shows. Keep him on SD for a while before he returns to dominate Raw as his evil Viper character.

Pick # 6 Kofi to Smackdown
A no brainer. Kofi is in limbo on Raw and is going nowhere. Put him on SD to fill in for Rey(while he takes a break) and push him to the stars with Swagger and MVP.

Pick # 7 MVP to Smackdown
Again, MVP is going nowhere on Raw. Ressurect the heel MVP, give him a 3 month IC Title reign to help him regain some credibility and give him the World Title at Summerslam.

Pick # 8 Sheamus to Smackdown
Send Sheamus to the blue brand to fine tune his in ring abilities, improve his mic work and establish some credibility. Possibly give him a World Title and as another contributor suggested in his picks, team him with Finlay.

Pick # 9 Ted DiBiase to Smackdown
Give Ted some more exposure. Leave him defend his belt whenever he wants.Give him a decent mid card feud with either Kofi or Sheamus. I've said in previous articles that I'd like to see him continue his feud with Christian, but this would benefit his career more.

Pick # 10 Punk to Raw
WWE needs somebody to fill the void left by HBK, and I think Punk is the dark horse that has the tools to do it. The fans kayfabe hate him, he always garners a reaction and he is capable of putting on top class matches. Plus, he may be the one to save us from John Cena.

I know I've left out Batista, but he's taking time off soon and will pop up on any brand when he returns. Same goes for Rey Mysterio. HHH will take a month off soon enough and should(I think) return as his evil heel persona. Kane will stay where he is, as will McIntyre, Showmiz, Cena, Jericho and Taker.

Part two will feature the supplementary draft. Thanks for reading. All suggestions welcome.
