With the draft now 2 weeks away, it's time to organize the good ol' board mock draft. I tried finding previous versions of the board mock so that I could just cut-and-paste rules and make minor changes to the pick schedule, but it appears that those threads were lost in the move to the new forum. Oh well.

Anyway, here's your chance to sign up for a team (or teams) and play GM (for a week-and-a-half, at least). We'll draft a total 3 rounds so that all teams are allowed to play (even the lowly Raiders and Saints with no 1st or 2nd round picks), with time slots lasting an hour for round one (8 picks to make on each day...Monday through Thursday of next week), then a half hour each for round two and three (16 picks each day leading up to draft day itself).

The teams will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis (with the exception being our Steelers, who will be assigned via lottery). If you sign up for a team, you will get one chance in the Steeler lottery. If you sign up for 2 teams, you will get two chances in the Steeler lottery. I will pick names out of a hat on Saturday evening, so pick your teams before then, so that you have a shot at representing our Steelers and making our all-important picks! If teams are still available after that, you can sign up for more than two teams (so I am not just picking for every open team), but of course, the Steeler lottery will be over by then, so you won't get any more chances, obviously.

Trades are allowed among our GM's, but it must be 2012 picks for 2012 picks (no picks in future years and no current players). You can include picks in rounds 4-7 in trades, even though our draft will stop at the end of round three. Just as in real life, compensatory picks are untradeable. Use the standard draft trade value chart to determine fair trades (the points don't need to be exact, but they should be somewhat close to keep things fair). Here is a trade value calculator to help:

http://www.calculatorsoup.com/calculators/games/draft-pick-value.php

If you sign up for a team and will not be near a computer when your team will be picking, you can send me your pick via PM (send me your top several guys you are considering in order, just in case the guy you want gets picked before your turn comes up). If you miss your pick outright, two teams behind you will be allowed to leapfrog you Minnesota Viking style as a penalty. At that point, I will make your pick for you, and we will continue to move forward as scheduled.

Have fun with it! When you make your pick, welcome him to the team...include pics, stats, scouting reports, and even your own personal justification for why you made this particular pick for this particular team.

Here is the schedule, starting next week (note: all times are Eastern Standard Time, since that is where Pittsburgh is located):

Well, get yourself in that Steeler lottery, and do it yourself!

All righty then...I'll pencil you in (and give myself Detroit and St. Louis for now, since I think I've had those two teams for as long as we've been doing this...or so it seems at least)

I'll take the Bungles, if they're still open. Know I'm kind of new, but I play well with others.

Pouncey53Fan
04-12-2012, 09:30 PM
I'll take the Chargers and Raiders (someone has to take the Raiders lol :p)

D Rock
04-12-2012, 09:37 PM
My first thought was...crap, new job, can't be on the computer all day. But who cares...I'll just PM you 7 or 8 picks each time to be sure.


In keeping with tradition, go ahead and sign me up for Jacksonville.

RuthlessBurgher

Updates made...thanks Steelersrock151, Pouncey53Fan, and D Rock. And welcome to those of you who are new at this (not you, D Rock ;)).

Can you explain the rules once more, but slower this time? Thanks.

I put names of each of the claimed teams in a hat.

Squidkid had 2 chances.
I had 2 chances.
NottinghamForest_UK had 1 chance.
Steelersrock151 had 1 chance.
Pouncey53fan had 2 chances.
D_Rock had 1 chance.

And the team that I picked out of the hat was...the St. Louis Rams.

That means I get control of the Steelers' pick in our board mock draft for the first time ever.

I swear I did not cheat...I have been doing this for the last several years, and this is the first time that I have chosen my own name.

Hopefully, more folks sign up before 9:00 a.m. on Monday, since I would really like to get some differing opinions in here.

And, to the folks who have already signed up for 1 or 2 teams (thanks again, fellas), you can request more teams now if you'd like (I don't want to be picking for 25 teams myself here).

Chadman
04-15-2012, 02:19 AM
If you want to put Chadman down for Da Bears, that'd be cool...just be aware that time is always an issue for Chadman because you guys are just so far behind it's not even funny...so if you don't mind getting early draft selections to your PM box, let Chadman know..

as far as i am concerned you should get the steelers every year just for running this thing.

04-15-2012, 05:12 PM
i will take the jets also if that's okay?

Steelersrock151
04-15-2012, 06:07 PM
I can pick up the Eagles. Ran them in another mock, so I'm pretty familiar with their needs.

Ill take my traditional NYG and Tampon Bay.

Awesome...thanks for jumping in Chadman and DoS, and thanks for taking on an extra team Squid and 151. And, of course, with Chadman being on the other side of the planet, it is completely understandable if you are not available when your team picks. Feel free to PM me as necessary. If you pick 3rd that day, send me your top 3 picks...if you pick 6th that day, send me your top 6 picks. In fact, squidkid already let me know that he won't be available for Cleveland's first pick, so he sent me his top 4. Thanks again, folks.

NottinghamForest_UK
04-16-2012, 04:24 AM
Ruthless I may have to PM you my picks also! + as plenty of teams are left, I'll take the Rat Birds too!

D Rock
04-16-2012, 06:51 AM
Let's get most of today claimed at least....I'll take Miami and Carolina, too. Both of today's picks may be made late (and Carolina's early), but that's the way a clever GM makes sure he doesn't get skipped!

RuthlessBurgher

Sorry to get in on this so late- What's available? I could take Houston or Denver if no one has them...Maybe Arizona. No more than 2 please.... Let me know...

Awesome...you're in...I gave you the first two teams that you mentioned (Texans and Broncos). Anyone else who wants to join the party late is free to do so...I took the remainder of the unclaimed teams this morning, but if others want to volunteer to draft for any of them, they are yours...just ask. Thanks again, folks.
