Hi Folks

 

We're looking to do a new mock, likely starting this weekend or Monday.

 

It'll be a bit different than previous drafts. In short, our goal is to make it quicker and smoother. We're also doing a lottery of sorts (to allow folks a chance at getting the Colts) for team selection.

 

If you read the following rules (which we may tweak before the start), we need to know two things.

1. Are you willing to be the GM for 2 teams (in the case we don't get 32)

2. If you miss your draft window, do you want pure BPA or Need/BPA (you will supply your need priority once you have your team). You can decide later.

 

If you do want to play, please follow this thread so you don't miss out on updates.

 

Basic guidelines/rules

  1. We'll do a lottery for team selection.
  2. One round per evening. Two windows each evening (likely 7pm and 9pm, or 8pm and 10pm). One 1-16, the other 17-32, with a mini-break between 8/9 and 24/25 to catch up things if needed.
  3. The picks will be scheduled in 5 minute increments, so you'll know exactly when you need to pick. GMs can make their picks earlier than their scheduled times (if previous GM has picked), but the next GM's clock will not start until the scheduled time (you'll never lose your scheduled window)
  4. If you miss your scheduled pick time, you'll fall to the mini break or end of window. If you're there you can make your pick then, or the we'll make your pick for you based on your selection of PBA or need.
  5. To keep it simple, no personnel for pick trades while the draft is happening (only pick for pick trades during). You can make personnel trades for picks but they must be fully negotiated (with other GM) and submitted one hour prior to the start of the draft (first window).
  6. We'll have 3 people managing the mock. One in the general pick thread moderating and updating the draft order and picks, one in a trade thread moderating and approving, and one updating a real time big board so you know real time who available. @chad72 @NFLfan

 

 

I'll be posting links for draft order, draft capital, team needs, and big boards a bit later.

This is a super busy time of year for me, and Ive basically doubled my workload in the last 2 weeks, so there is zero chance I will have the time to do the proper leg work needed to do this. Im down t

The more the merrier :-)

 

I know a lot of people don't spend much time in the FA area, so wanted to give everyone a chance to jump in.

Appreciate the offer but I don’t trust myself.  I won’t take it serious and will pick Jeff George jr in the first round.  
 

I do like seeing what others, who do take it seriously, do though!

This would be a lot of fun! I love stuff like this, but I'm not sure I'll be able to do it this weekend. I have a road trip to Connecticut and might not come back until Monday. Probably only fair if I pass to someone who is sure they can make it.

Thanks mentioning me to but I never have much time I'll just follow you guys activity. 

It's a pre-set schedule (see above), so you won't have to spend a ton of time waiting. Up to you!

As I have probably nothing else to do at weekend, due to "sleepy" covid management over here, I'm in! 

 

To be honest, I would've been in anyway.

@NFLfan - you were going to GM too, right?

 

Not this year. I did not watch college football much this year. But I will assist with updating the big board and the list of draft selections. 

 

Starting Monday works a lot better for me.

    • If Doyle doesn’t retire already had him being cut saving the Colts $5.45 million against the cap next season.  A replacement in FA would be TE Dallas Goedert (Eagles).  In Round 1 am projecting TE Jalen Wydermyer from Texas A&M to be a target.   Both Rhodes and Carrie I project to be unsigned.  RCB Rasul Douglas (Raiders) would be a backup RCB might be a target.  If we had the cap space RCB Darious Williams (Rams) went UDFA to NFL star 11m valuation (15m easily).  Still hold out on adding FS Marcus Williams (Saints) who is playing on a 10.6m tag.  Should get around 4yr/60m 35m guaranteed.   In the end I doubt the Colts sign any of these options and focus on the draft.   I like the Sam Tevi addition and think the Colts got a steal of a deal for him.  Am hoping Fisher is healthy and can start by week 5 giving the Colts an option to trade Tevi to a team that just drafted a rookie LT that is struggling or got injured and need trade capital.  See Will Holden as our 3rd LT and Davenport getting released during cut downs.  One idea is to sign Fisher to his one year contract this year and use additional capital to go after someone younger like RT Brian O’Neill (Vikings).  Was very high on O’Neill coming out of college as a LT.  O’Neill and Smith are two of the best players currently playing RT that moved from original college positions and have flourished.  O’Neill would be a long-shot addition but would create options to mix-n-match scenarios here.  Either way by not drafting a rookie OL that can start we are going to be financially hurting I believe next off-season unless we cut players like Doyle and Stewart with a Post-June 1 designation.  I don’t see the Colts being aggressive next off-season in Free Agency but below is an early look to next off-season have been working on.   FA Adds RT Brian O’Neill (move to LT) 4yr/64m 16m APY with 30m guaranteed.  Option 2: resign Fisher with 2 year extension 12m/15m   Cut IDL Grover Stewart – save 8.125m or 9.378m June 1 Cut TE Jack Doyle – save 5.45m   Resign/Extend LB Darius Leonard -not a true MLB. My original offer 5 years $82.5 million 40m guaranteed  RT Braden Smith 4/58m 30m guaranteed LG Nelson 5 years $85 million (17m) = 15m, 16m, 17m, 18m, 19m – top LG makes 14.781m / yr TE Mo Allie-Cox 3yr/20.8 or 6.93 APY (5.5-6.8-8.5)  WR Zach Pascal 3/24 8m APY (5.4-8.6-10)  LDE Tyquan Lewis 3/11.4m 3.8m APY (2.2m, 3.8m, 5.4m)  RB Nyheim Hines 3yr/13.645m (4.55m APY) (base 3.9m, 4.5m 5.65m with 1.35m roster bonus each year) Similar to A. Eckler  DE Kemoko Turay 1/2m  LT Will Holden 1/1.4m 1 C Joey Hunt 1/1.25m 9 RG/LG Chris Reed (OTC eval 6.3m backup capable of 13.4m pay play) signed for 1.127m renew 1/1.75m RG Glowinski 2yr/18m DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 1yr/4m 12.063m cap space IDL Isaac Rochell 2/3-3.5m 9.063m cap space   2022 Early Draft    Edge Kayvon Thibodeaux, Edge, Oregon RD 1 Drake Jackson, Edge, USC – or LB good 2019 RD 1 Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati – all day every day good hand moves and pass deflections RD 2 George Karlaftis III, DL, Purdue – solid 2019 7.5 sacks 1 FF 2 PDs – great field awareness hands for Ints Aidan Hutchinson, IDL, Michigan 2019 only decent year 4.5 sacks 2 FFs 6 PDs.  6’6” 269 LBS.  Great catch-up speed RD 2-3   CB   Derek Stingley JR, CB, LSU – career year in 2019 6 INTs and 15 PDs.  Low 2020 but FF RD 1 Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida – low tkls, 2-3 INTs/yr improved 2020 with 11 PDs RD 1-2 Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati – 3 INTs each year 2020/2019 and 6-8 PDs RD 1 Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn – 1 FF capable of INTs and decent at PDs 6/11 2020/2019   S Kyle Hamilton, S, ND – hands for INTs and 6-7 PDs/yr RD 1 Kolby Harvell-Peel, S, Oklahoma State – sacks, FFs, hands for INTs and 2019 13 PDs RD 2-3   WR Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson RD 2 George Pickens, WR, Georgia RD 1 John Metchie III, WR, Alabama RD 2-3 Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada   LB Christian Harris, LB, Alabama – size, sacks, FF, Int RD 1-2 Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah - size, sacks, FF, Int – low on PDs   OL RG Cain Madden, Marshall Finished top 10 among RGs RT Evan Neal, Alabama R2-3 RT Darian Kinnard, Kentucky R3-4   Come draft day be it Round 1 or Round 2 would like to see the Colts address either WR or CB early but with our Edges I wouldn’t be upset if we drafted someone like Myjai Sanders (Cincinnati).  Realize pay scale always influx and we hope the cap increases at the end of next year and players might just play to bigger contracts.  Good baseline to start with and reason why teams draft rookies to help off-set the rising costs of contract extensions.  
    • As you likely guessed, I think we either re-sign Fisher or re-sign one OR both of Tevi and/or Davenport.   Figured if we couldn’t find a LT that worked for us at pick 54 this year,  we’re likely not going to find one in the 2nd round next year.  I think we’d fill the hole with someone until 2023 and use our 1st in that draft to fill the LT.  But for now, I’m guessing EF.      As to CB, if we had to, we could go corner in the 2nd and TE in the 3rd.  But, for whatever reason, I’m far more optimistic on Rock and Tell than most here.  
    • Believe it or not, some people thought JT was better than Saquan
    • Wouldn't say people didn't think he wouldn't live up to the hype, but about 70% of the board did not like that pick (or at least 70% of the posts were negative).  
    • I’d have to think that TE and LT are at the top of the list. Fisher is only on a 1 year deal after all.    CB really scares me personally though. Carrie and Rhodes gone after the season and who knows what we will get from Ya-Sin and Tell.
