Once we have enough participants we can have someone randomly assign the teams.

As long as the time limits are adhered to, and a plan in place for making the pics for the tardy, I think we can do without e-mail reminders.

Should we have a sign up deadline? That way we can assign teams? I would assume anyone that is interested and online enough would have seen this sticky thread by now.

We should allow as many as people as possible to take part but if we limit members and have everyone take on two teams or whatever it may keep things interesting and force people to follow up.

=== Sign up ===

If you didn't participate in last years mock, or do not frequent the college and draft threads, don't sign up. Period.


Did I not participate in last years mock? If I'm eligible, I'd like to play. But only if I get to be a team like Detroit or Buffalo who is known for not doing very well in the draft.

Don't want to sully Bellichick's reputation know what I mean?

Also, why would the pick be made for someone who misses? Why wouldn't you do it like in the actual draft, if I don't get my pick in on time, I can make my pick at anytime, before the next selection?

You've been doing this a while, so if you say that's the best way, it's the best way. I'm just wondering.

SM has run a great mock for the last 2 yrs.

Drafting this way seems to be the most efficient way to run the draft.

I personally wish there was only a 12 hr clock to make a pick.

But like I said this is SM's show and he does a great job with it.

I wouldn't mind that if it was indeed like the actual draft. It's really not. No GM misses their pick accidentally in the NFL draft. The few times a team has missed their pick it was done on purpose. Having it done like that in a mock draft would mess the whole mock up, as there are usually multiple GM's in the mock that miss their picks.

I like the clock the way it is. Most of us who get into this thing stay on top of it. The picks go pretty fast.

But sometimes it's not hard to get busy for 12 hours. Lets say you're sixth in line at the start of the day and you get busy at work or with the kids or something, and then the five picks in front of you fly right by. Doesn't seem fair to get skipped in a situation like that.

The way it is right now, you don't really have an excuse if you miss your pick. So we just move on.

Signed you up TK.

You've been doing this a while, so if you say that's the best way, it's the best way. I'm just wondering.

If we didnt make a consensus pick for some teams who miss, their pick would never be made as they have either forgotten about this thread, or just dont give a damn. Not very realistic for teams to stop drafting IMO. Also if GM's miss their first round picks it would just make a mess of everything.

If there's any room left, Count me In.

Signed you up Wolf.

I personally wish there was only a 12 hr clock to make a pick.

We will probably move to a quicker clock as the draft goes on. But the first 2 rounds should go fairly quickly as people are interested and know the prospects.

I guess if everyone PM's anyone they feel would be interested to participate and keep up with this thread, we can fill the last 5 spots and divvy up teams.

Or we could say screw it and have TPN divvy up 2 teams to a few peeps.

You've been doing this a while, so if you say that's the best way, it's the best way. I'm just wondering.

Although picks usually go pretty well through the first round or two, as the draft goes on, guys start missing. Life starts messing stuff up and guys miss logging in for a few days here and there. It happens. In those cases, it's worked out pretty well to have a consensus pick at those points.

It's generally a good practice to PM your top 5 picks to a couple of people when the pick gets to within 5 spots from your pick. That way, if your top picks are taken, at least you get one in there. I've had several times where I had my list of 4-5 guys and all of those guys go right before my pick. Very frustrating.

Well, if Seminole is cool with the Bills... and you don't want the Eagles... I'll be more than happy to take them off your hands.

BUT if you want to pick for both the Raiders and Eagles, go for it. I've got the Seahawks so I'm not left out in the dark or anything.

Not a big fan of the Eagles, and am kind of clueless as to what their needs are atm, so I'm perfectly fine with you getting them. This is my first time doing a mock draft of this magnitude so I think it'll be better for me to just do it for the Raiders this year.

I'm pretty sure he was referring to all the Texans' Monday Morning QBs that will nit-pick & find something wrong with everything the Texans do.

As a matter of fact, I'm surprised they haven't jumped on you for being proud/happy to pick for the Texans.

Dude, you've already lost. You better be able to take criticism because no matter who you pick you will get some, and you are at a tough spot in the draft. There will be plenty of 3-4 DE's available for you. The problem? That is not at an area of need for the Texans. You want a DT, OLB or CB? Unless Miller, Dareus or Amukamara falls you will have to reach for one of those positions since you won't be allowed to trade back. And unless A.J Green falls you shouldn't even contemplate offense. Good luck.

With the #1 selection in the 2011 NFL draft, the Carolina Panthers select Nick Fairley DT Auburn.

The Panthers have a pretty good set of bookends, but no dominate DT. They rectify that with this selection.

As for the Fairley pick, he dominated in the BCS title game so it makes since to get a guy that can single-handily hold his own and make plays. Question is: what scheme do the Panthers run and how will Fairley fit into it?

They ran the 4-3 last year, but with Rivera taking over, I think they will be switching to the 3-4. If not this year, then next.

Rivera ran a 4-3 cover 2 in Chicago and a 3-4 in San Diego. So who knows what kinda defense he will run in Carolina.

This is a yr that I would want to pay 1st pick $$$$ to any player in this draft.

Fairley is a good player though.

The thing that scares me with the Texans is that (IMHO) there are only about 7 guys that are almost no-miss picks. Picking at 11 gets into the second echelon and I'm not sure how bad our F.O. may whiff.

Remember we only need 4 offensive guys to go before us to be able to get one of the 7 no-miss defensive prospects. Cam Newton had a poor combine but has the intangibles and swagger to lead a team. It only takes one team to like him and I could easily see one of the Bills, Titans, Redskins and even possibly the Panthers reach on him. I do not see the 49ers because i do not think he fits the offense. Blaine Gabbart had a pretty good combine and if he lights up his pro day he will defiantly go before 11. Julio Jones had an amazing combine posting a 4.39 40 great vert and broad jump all with a fractured foot. I could easily see the Redskins taking him to replace Santana, and I think we all agree the A.J. Green will be picked before us. That leaves one of the top 7 D prospects falling to us whether its Amukamara, Quinn, Miller or anyone else.

I know I'm in the minority on this one but I have had Patrick Peterson on top of my draft board for over a year.

I know he is a CB and nobody takes a CB at #1 but I would take him.

I think he and A.J. Green are easily the top two in this draft class. And that's no knock on the other guys. I have Dareus, Bowers, and Fairley rated really high too.

This would be a very interesting scenario for the Cardinals. Do they go with a QB like Gabbert? Do they take a pass rusher like Von Miller? Or do they take Patrick Peterson, arguably the best player in the draft? They'd have an excellent excellent secondary if they went with Peterson... and then address pass rush in the top of the 2nd? Will be fun to watch.

I think that they would be NUTS to go with a QB here.

They are a team that can conceivably win the NFC West with a competent QB, rather get a veteran in and take another shot at getting far in the playoffs.

Peterson would be my pick. He's my # 1 rated player in this draft.

In this scenario the Texans should be on the phone offering a 2011 1st and 3rd. Plus a 2012 2nd. It's a small price to pay to get the best player in the draft. After watching last yrs secondary they should also sign a vet FA.

Ike Taylor, Peterson, Quin, Pick (Lefeged) and Jackson as the nickle would be a major upgrade. No more of suffering thru the McCain /Molden/Wilson/Pollards of the world. When having to face the Mannings of the world.

What about a pass rush? Even great corners are exposed on an island for too long. Especially since the league adopted the no touchy the wr rule. I say sit back and see how long Von lasts. With Dareus off the board, I think we definitely target DE or OLB hybrids. Von/Quinn/Jordan/Watt/Ayers.

I value talent over need and as I stated Peterson is ranked #1 on my board. There are very few guys in the history of the NFL that have run a 4.32 at 220 LBS. Plus Peterson is a football player that runs fast. He's not just a track guy.

Pass rusher is also a need. But that need could be filled by another guy I like alot Brooks Reed in rd.2 or Dontay Moch/Sam Acho in rd.3

This is a good draft for 3-4 rush OLB's.

Yep, I was hoping one of the Top 4 picks so far would drop to me at #6, but all were taken. I'm going with Quinn for the Browns, but if trades were allowed I would definitely prefer to trade back. None of the top talent left fills a need.

Edit: Several of the DE's are great, and the Browns have a need there, I just think one could be had at spots 10-15 instead.

Robert Quinn DE from UNC!

http://wordpressdev.nepatriotsdraft.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/robert-quinn.jpg

Robert Quinn, DE/OLB, North Carolina (Junior)
Height: 6’5″
Weight: 260
Projection: 1st Round

Strengths:
Incredible burst and athleticism – Quick off the snap – Very productive as a sophomore – Decent run stopper – Sheds blockers well – 4.5 speed is elite for a DE/OLB.

Weaknesses:
Needs to add some bulk to play DE, or work on coverage as OLB – Prior benign brain tumor could cause concern – Not very diverse in rush moves, could add a bull-rush – Runs himself out of the play on occasion – Not a lot of production vs. elite competition – Will not play in 2010.

The Browns need a lot of help on the defensive side of the ball, and we have very little depth at DE. Transitioning to the 4-3 will also put a strain on the team, so we will begin building from the outside of the D-line inwards!

No joke. Supposedly he is the #1 player on Dallas' draft board. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if Jerry jumped 1 spot to make sure he snagged his guy. It wouldn't take much for them to do that...

Now that I say that, it obviously depends how much San Fran loves the guy or the other prospects. If Gabbert is deemed a franchise QB for them, they aren't moving an inch. If they love Peterson or another prospect, the may stand pat. With only Tennessee between them (or another team trading up with Tenn), you'd think SF could move down and still get who they covet but may not risk it.

I'd rather Dallas have Peterson than Tennessee!
