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.

Are we just doing the first round or is the plan to eventually do all 7?
