The Blues took steps to keep the prospect pipeline full to overflowing for the short- and long-term future this weekend, using their first four picks to select college-bound players (on a 3-5 year timetable for making their pro debuts) and then drafting juniors (on a 2-3 year timetable) with their last four picks.

We posted a profile of first-round pick Jordan Schmaltz on Friday (LINK here), and will be posting profiles of the Blues' other seven selections over the course of the day today.

All the news that's fit to print, details on when the prospect profiles go up... and a whole lot more. After the jump.

The Kurker profile goes up at 1:00, Maceachern at 2:00, Parayko at 3:00, Walters and Tremblay at 4:00, and Lindbohm and Seaman at 5:00.

While you're waiting for the profiles to post, enjoy these Blues' draft videos from Friday and yesterday. In order, top to bottom, they are:

Blues select Jordan Schmaltz.

Chief scout Bill Armstrong explains why the Blues chose Schmaltz 10-15 spots ahead of where the pundits thought he would go.
