Hey everyone. I wasn't able to commit to participating in this, but have read through all the rounds of the draft you've done. I don't follow college football overall that closely, mainly watch IU games and other big games I'm able to watch.
Just wanted to thank you all for educating me on this year's draft prospects so I'll be able to watch the Draft with a bit of knowledge on some of these players.
It's really helpful when I see names in the draft that I've read about on these mock drafts.
Again, thanks to all of you! GO COLTS!!!
Honestly? I have no idea? I think this may be unprecedented... a QB dealing with epilepsy? I think it’s unknown.
My fear, is that teams don’t like Big Question marks at that position. I wouldn’t begin to know. I hope for the best... (but I fear the worst — draft wise).
I don't understand the bolded one. Why do this.
Approved a relaxation of rules for the numbers that players of certain positions can wear because of expanded practice squads. Running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, defensive backs and linebackers can all wear numbers in the single digits now if they choose. Based on preexisting NFL rules, players who want to change their numbers this season will have to buy out the inventory of the NFL's manufacturing partners. This wouldn't apply to players who give notice in 2021 that they want to change numbers in 2022.
Approved a one-year experiment in an attempt to make it easier to recover onside kicks. In 2021, the receiving team on kickoffs will be limited to nine players within 25 yards of the ball. Last season, NFL teams recovered only three of 67 onside kicks, the lowest total and recovery rate since at least 2001. As a result, the Philadelphia Eagles proposed that teams be given an option to gain 15 yards on one offensive play from their own 25-yard line to retain possession after a score.
Tabled a rule that would have expanded the area where players are prohibited from blocking below the waist. McKay said that there is enough support to pass the rule now but that several teams had questions that will take some time to address. It could be revisited next month.
Eliminated overtime in preseason games.
Changed a rule that will now force a loss of down if two passes are completed behind the line of scrimmage.
Approved a rule change that ensures the enforcement of all accepted penalties during successive try attempts, defined as an opportunity for a team to score one or two additional points during one scrimmage down.
Did not act on a "spot or choose" proposal from the Ravens for the winner of the overtime coin toss. In that scenario, the team would have the option to choose either which team will have the first possession of overtime or where the ball would be spotted.
Decided to include taunting among its points of emphasis for 2021. McKay clarified that the emphasis would be directed not at celebrations but toward acrimonious interaction among players.
Tabled a proposal from the Buffalo Bills that would have pushed back interviews for general manager and head-coaching positions until after the championship round of the playoffs and would have prevented hires until after the Super Bowl. It will be further studied.
Completed a study of the sharp drop in offensive holding during the 2020 season. McKay said that Walt Anderson, the NFL's senior vice president of training and development, would clarify the standard and put together a video for teams to consume before the 2021 season.
Need to edit something: the only restriction I had was driving. I couldn't get a license until I went at least 6 months with no problems. Then I had to get a doctor's permission to try for a driver's license.
