Should we divvy up owners and get them with their team so we can all watch the senior bowl, combine, etc.? Just get a head start on breaking down what are team needs.

I'm in...


RULES:
NO TRADES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Start: Mock will NOT start until after the combine. [Feb. 22-28.]
Teams: 1 team per user.
Rounds: This is a 7 round mock.
CLOCK RULES:
Your clock time starts when the team in front of you makes a pick. Unless it was made while the clock is not running. In that case it will start at 7AM of the following weekday morning.

Round (1): 24 hours per pick. (Clock Only runs from 7AM-9PM)
Rounds (2-7): 12 hours per pick. (Clock Only runs from 7AM-9PM)
Night: Clock stops running at 9PM. Picks can still be made.
Morning: Clock starts running at 7AM. Picks can still be made.
Weekends: Clock stops. Picks can still be made.

Unavailable, proxy or MIA:
1.) If you miss a single pick, the rest of your teams draft will be a group pick.
2.) If you know you will be gone for awhile and might miss your pick, PM top players to myself or another member of this mock. They will make a proxy pick for you.

I'm in, how many rounds are we going to do, and how do we determine who get's what team? If we're picking teams I want Pittsburgh. I know nothing about their needs but I welcome the chance to learn.

How much time between picks and what do we do when someone doesn't make their pick? This has gotten messed up the last couple years because their aren't any rules or their not followed.

Pencil Neck has some kind of computer generated formula for who gets what teams.

Super Mario usually runs the draft. It's usually a 7 rd draft.

He did one draft where everbody had 1 team and after the 3rd rd or so some people dropped out.

He then did another by invitation only, 16 people 2 teams per person that went much more smoothly.

BTW, I will take the Cowgirls. I cant do worse than Jerrah. (LOL)

Paging Super Mario and PencilNeck.......(That is, if they want to take it on again)

I know it's super early, but maybe we can get a list going of peeps who want to participate again.

BTW, Bah007 nailed it for the Pats last year. Watt and Reed nabbed in the 1st & 2nd rounds.

FYI, here's a list of the NFL draft picks by team:

http://www.fftoolbox.com/nfl_draft/2012/nfl_draft_order_full.cfm

Philly has the most picks with 10, followed by Cincy and Cleveland with 9, 5 teams have 8. Most teams have 6 or 7, but the Falcons have 5 and the Raiders have 3. Just something to consider when picking teams. New England only has 6 picks this year, which is pretty low for them.

Not gonna do it this year, sorry guys.

I like to really put in a lot of time researching my team and the players that fit their culture so I put in way too much time. I'm just way too busy this year to be able to do that and don't want to half-@$$ it.

This is always a really fun thing to do though and know I'll miss it. Good luck everybody!!

Disclaimer - I may pop in from time to time and throw out a name or two for yall to research. Only if I think a lot of the prospect though.:fingergun:

We didn't include comp picks last year. The comp picks were not announced until the end of March, so I don't know if we want to wait that long to start this draft.

We didn't allow trades last year, but did update the draft order as actual NFL trades were announced. There are still about 8 trades outstanding that the NFL or teams have not disclosed the details of. We may learn those details in the near future. So pretty much just don't pick the Raiders and you'll have at least 5 picks to work with.

I good with all of this. No trades though, that will just get crazy for no good reason....I say we run the 1st round, see how everyone feels about that and then continue through round 3 or 4. I don't particularly want to go 7 rounds unless I'm getting paid by the Panthers!!!

I think you have to go several because it reveals the percieved strengths of the draft .

This should be a comittment by all that have signed up. IMHO

I agree with not having any trades. We would all have to assemble war rooms and have friends to come over and work the phones. Just too much

I'll take two teams if I need to. But I'd like to take another that doesn't have many draft picks. Why not create a list of those dedicated enough to take two teams?

This happens every year. Then as it gets closer to the draft more fellow posters become interested, see the draft thread & think it would be cool to play, which should be a huge part since we are all in this to help our fellow Texan fans. If that becomes the case I would be willing to pull out. I've agreed to work with the boys on another mock joint venture exclusively Texans which is the only team I really care about anyway. :texans:

I think we should have a person selecting for the Texans, not group selection. Group selection sounds like alot of debating back and forth with the potential to really slow the draft process. Whoevers in charge, draw a name from a hat from among us and let that person be the Texans GM.

I wouldn't mind taking on two teams however, there are several board members that want to participate that don't get a chance so I think we should allow them to take part. Afterward, we should allow people to double up if we have teams remaining.

In previous years one of two things happen.

After a couple of rounds people start to drop out and a hardcore group take a couple of teams and do it over again.

or

After a couple of rounds people drop out and the dedicated people take on extra teams and finish it off.

Either way, we all know that everyone signed up isn't committed to do the whole 7 rounds, while some are.

Does it come down to a question of letting someone make 2 picks and then we debate about someone taking that team over, or do we just give the extra teams to dedicated drafters now and cut out the fuss?

For this reason why don't we only do 4 rounds. The late round guys could go anywhere from 5th -7th rounds and aren't that important anyway, though they bring good depth.

Well, one thing that really helps with running the mock is admin rights to this part of the board. I know SM has them for the Mock section and it helps with consolidating threads, organizing the picks and stickying all the stuff that matters. Unless another mod wants to do the legwork, it really doesn't benefit the group for a regular member to run it because all the information will be spread out around the threads.

SM said that he wanted to participate this yr, but not run it.

Texans 4ever helped SM last yr. So he might have the priviledges and be willing to run it.

I think the problem we are running into is that there isn't a clear understanding of that the draft will be. I think this mock was setup backwards from the way it should have been. I think it would have been better to have had someone (or a group) step up and take control and responsibility for the mock in the beginning. They could have a clear set of expectations in regards to how many rounds, how many teams per member, etc set forth from the beginning.

Now we are in a situation where we are trying to decide between a 3-4 round mock and a full 7.

I think it would be a very good idea if someone steps up and takes full responsibility. Then they can lay out the rules ahead of time and give people an opportunity to continue or decommit BEFORE the mock starts.

As was previously stated, the person in charge should have admin privileges to merge threads.

Wolf6151
01-29-2012, 03:50 PM
Why don't we give it a couple more days for people to claim a team and if by Tuesday at noon if there are teams left over then those that have volunteered to take on a 2nd team can do so. There are several people who volunteered for the mock on the first couple pages but still haven't claimed a team yet. Hopefully everyone that has singed up is down for doing the whole thing and paying attention to the mock, not half assing it.

srrono
01-29-2012, 04:06 PM
Just an idea but we should have a chat room going for the mock draft then have an admin posting the results of mock picks in the mock thread as they happen so it dont turn into a big mess of pages in thread between picks.

I dont mind running this thing as long as I get some help from everyone else as far as keeping people on time and on task. The most draining part is chasing MIA members down. We can either start the mock now, or wait until the combine is over. Combine is Feb. 22-28.

Here are the tweaked rules we have used the past few years. They seem to work pretty well.

RULES:
NO TRADES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Start: Mock will NOT start until after the combine. [Feb. 22-28.]
Teams: 1 team per user.
Rounds: This is a 7 round mock.

CLOCK RULES:
Your clock time starts when the team in front of you makes a pick. Unless it was made while the clock is not running. In that case it will start at 7AM of the following weekday morning.

Round (1): 24 hours per pick. (Clock Only runs from 7AM-9PM)
Rounds (2-7): 12 hours per pick. (Clock Only runs from 7AM-9PM)
Night: Clock stops running at 9PM. Picks can still be made.
Morning: Clock starts running at 7AM. Picks can still be made.
Weekends: Clock stops. Picks can still be made.

Unavailable, proxy or MIA:

1.) If you miss a single pick, the rest of your teams draft will be a group pick.
2.) If you know you will be gone for awhile and might miss your pick, PM top players to myself or another member of this mock. They will make a proxy pick for you.

Does this make sense to everyone? Did I miss anything that should be covered?

On that subject, I recall last year several people being impatient with those taking their time, and I think that needs to be addressed before we start this year. If we all agree to the rules and time limits, there shouldn't be any whining or harassing people to make picks simply because they are online. If someone is about to hit their time limit, then sure bring it up, but if the guy has 10 hours left and isn't ready to make his pick, don't beat him over the head about it.

Also, if you upset others with making their picks, they will be less likely to complete the draft.

On the other hand it makes things run smoother to pick as soon as you can because if I check in and am ready to pick and the person before me just ain't ready , I checked in because I know that I will not be back for 8 hours then it stalls the process .

If we do it at this date should we assume all teams resign thier own FA's? That way it is an even playing field instead of a guessing game whether for example V.Jackson stays in SD or Mario in HOU.

If we do it at this date should we assume all teams resign thier own FA's? That way it is an even playing field instead of a guessing game whether for example V.Jackson stays in SD or Mario in HOU.

That's what I'm going to do, but it's for each GM to decide for themselves if they want to take possible FA's into account while drafting for their team.

Sweet list! No owners are doubled up with teams. Hopefully everyone can keep this thing on track and be there when it's their pick.

What are we going to do with the rest of the teams? I say we make a team of members to pick for each of them. I'm nominating Norg and Houstonsportswriter(aka slatonisabeast). Let's have some grammatical fun with it. Or we could always get Dex and Carrbombed to team up for obvious reasons.

Blake
02-15-2012, 12:55 PM
Just a suggestion but why don't we start at 7:00am 2 days after the Combine is over? That will give all us GM's a chance to see the new player rankings and for all the prospect sites to update their lists. The Combine goes from Feb. 22nd - Feb. 28, but this is a leap year and there will be a Feb.29th. Why don't we start on Mar. 1st at 7:00 am?

^ This sounds like a plan to me. Seconded!

That is fine with me. I will be on a camping trip from Thursday March 1st through the Sunday. We can start the 29th, but someone else will need to take the reigns until I am back to work on Monday the 5th.

Doppelganger
03-02-2012, 12:29 PM
Good morning/afternoon to all of the other teams in the Texans Talk Mock draft. The DoppelColts are now ready to make our selection.

As a struggling franchise we have decided to do a full analysis of our team needs. At a careful and critique study we have concluded that our team sucks and we need help across the board. We would have liked to have traded own and acquired more picks, but since that was not possible, we have ultimately decided to stay put and make a choice.

We select this young man becuase he can pass the ball accurately and was able to hit on 70+% passing. He did this with and without a QB guru leading him down the field. He can throw from the pocket and the run. He has the arm to make all the throws. Good teams are built on good passing and we feel this young man more than justifies this spot. In this draft, there is nothing that is a certainity, but we feel he is truly a cornerstone of our franchise.

Without any further ado, The DoppelColts are pleased to present to you our number 1 selection of the First Round: Mr. Andrew Luck!

Shaft75
03-02-2012, 12:51 PM

REALLY wanted to trade down and acquire picks. If I was the real GM of the Colts, that's what I would have done. I think its certainly feasible to get a boatload of picks for #1 this year and extra picks can revitalize the organization.

That said, if I have to stay put, I'll take Luck.

everyone knows this pick is getting traded and rg3 is gonna go here to whoever offers the most, but i'm gonna draft as if the rams received 0 decent offers and have to stay with the 2nd overall pick.

with that in mind, with the 2nd overall pick in the 2012 texans talk mock draft the st. louis rams select...

matt kalil, ot, usc


http://cdn3.sbnation.com/photo_images/5005880/71546_FBC___Matt_Kalil.jpg

with many deficiencies on their team and a host of choices to make to help fix those, the rams decide to help keep their talented young QB on his feet and on the field. with so much invested in bradford, the rams decide to protect him from a david carr scenario and select the top rated tackle in the 2012 draft class. great feet, athleticism, and power make him a future bookend on the rams line for years to come.

Just watched the DT/LB combine on my DVR, and from here on out I think we should presume the next pick will always be Poe. Since he's got the build of a brick sh*t-house, the strength of an ox, and the feet of a river dancer. I'm surprised he didn't go #1 to the Colts...

But wait a second, do GM's look at game film? You wouldn't think so if you've heard Mayock's rambling. /sarcasm

I have to say, this is not something I have even considered for Minnesota but....I think it's brilliant. Kalil is far and away their top target and then after that you have Claiborne. They could land a ransom by grabbing Griffin though and putting him on the block or they could keep him and shop Ponder (for much less IMO).

Lame... I was hoping to get RG3 for nothing... :( Oh well, looks like Colt McCoy gets a shot to prove himself as a franchise QB this year. In order to help him do so, the Cleveland Browns select Justin Blackmon, WR Oklahoma State. At the combine he weighed in at 6'1 207 pounds. He ought to be the #1 WR that the Browns have been sorely lacking.

CB Morris Claiborne, LSU

http://cdn.cloudfiles.mosso.com/c1910342/media_center/images/rendered/blog/wysiwyg/OptimizedMoClaiborneINT.jpg

The Bucs have glaring weaknesses at cornerback in a division in which they play Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, and Cam Newton. Ronde Barber will be 37 years old next season and is contemplating retirement after a one year contract expired this past season. Recent reports indicate that Aqib Talib will remain a Buccaneer moving forward, but legal issues may put him in jail during the season. The Bucs need a guy to play right away and Claiborne is as ready as any corner in this draft.

The Washington Redskins and Aussie Texan are now on the clock.

Jonathan Martin OT Stanford

This was a very difficult pick.
With top prospects gone that we had an eye on (claiborne, RG3).

The redskins are the quintessential average team. In all team stats they lie around the 10-20 mark. But doing some more research i found out that there QB got "hit" the 3rd most times last year.
They need help on the o-line to protect our new QB (...Manning lol).

I selected Martin because his a better run-blocker then Reiff.
With shannahan running the ball is a focus and we need a strong RT.

Martin can and will develop his pass-blocking as well

The Texans need to be on the lookout for a QB of the future. Unless you think Yates is the QB of the future. I dont, he's a high end backup. IMHO

mate was bloody difficult. was debating over floyd and martin. but figured the redskins have decent WR (not great) but need help to protect there QB who ever he is.

i went through so many possibilities but just couldn't find the right fit. considered coples as well as my 5-technique but felt he isn't worth a top 10 pick.

so far all the picks have been very good.

Tampa badly need help on Defence and claiborne is the BPA plus feels a need.

Rams selecting Kalil is again BPA at a position of DESPERATE need.

Vikings = RG3, threw a massive spanner in the works but i like it. Harvin is going to love this!

Colts with luck well i just don't see it i have a feeling that week 1 jj Watt barrels saturday and puts luck on injury reserve for the year lol ... seriously though obvious pick and the pros are obvious too.

Blackmon to the browns i really like. still think Mccoy as something in him and needs weapons. Blackmon and greg little are too solid young WRs to help out Colt

Martin is my #2 Tackle in the Draft. I've never though of Reiff as a LT and there was no way I draft a RT in the top half of the first round, so I consider him overrated

Is he really worthy of being in the discussion with Luck, Kalil, Claiborne and Blackmon?

I would trade this yrs 1st and 3rd and next yrs 1st and 3rd to get him. It probably still wont be enough to get him.

I consider him to be a better work ethic/ smarter version of Vick. He's going to be great. IMHO

There is something in the back of my mind that came out last year that he was considering not turning pro. Does he live, eat, breathe football or is he a Carr clone?

I had a really good feeling for Dalton and even stronger for Newton, not so much for Griffin.

Although I can buy taking him to replace Ponder.

Just want to reiterate this, it's for everyone's benefit so this doesn't last until the actual draft. Also, make sure your profile is set to an email that you use often.

Hey guys, one other thing that can help speed up this process is to enable email from other members on your profile. Some have it, some don't, but I would imagine people check their email more often than this site. To enable it, go to "User CP", then click "Edit Options" on the side and make sure you have the box checked for "Receive Email from Other Members". I may use that to notify people when they have it enabled.

With the 8th pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select:

Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2011/0908/ncf_u_coples_bl_600.jpg

To me, this is a no-brainer pick. The Jags need help practically everywhere on defense. With Coples there at 8, the Jags had no choice but to select him and instantly upgrade their pass rush.

rmartin65
03-05-2012, 10:19 AM
Nice pick. Coples was going to be the pick here if you took this guy...

With the 8th pick (the Jags were 7th), the Miami Dolphins select Iowa OT Riley Reiff, 6'6" 313 lbs

http://www.thehometownfan.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Riley-Reiff.jpg

A big kid with a massive frame, Reiff will be a day one starter at RT for the Phish, and will likely be a 10-15 year starter at the position. I know it is the chic pick for the Dolphins, but I feel that it is the right move. Some picks just seem to click, and this one does. Also, I am not viewing QB as a huge need- I am banking on Flynn coming here in the off-season.

Yeah, the jags only real defensive needs are pass rushers. But this is turning the D into a super strength i would guess. Hard position to be in, without trades and FA. You'd have to suspect they've somewhat addressed the WR position.

Wish we could do these after FA, but then it rushes the process prior to the actual draft.

I'd be up for doing a 3 or 4 round draft April 1st. Maybe other would be interested too. It would be cool to compare the picks based on FA and franchise tags.

They were pretty good last year due to their DT and LB play, imo. They need pass rushers, safeties and another CB. They really need safeties, but there's none worthy of a 1st round pick.

Hey, so sorry I didn't even catch that it started!

Did a little reading on the Panther's forum, seems quite clear they've locked in on getting a big time DT to boost their defensive front. Personally, I'd go with Melvin Ingram, David Decastro or even another DT but since this seems like the big flashy name pick I'd like to take the plunge:

DONTARI POE, DT, MEMPHIS

The big man who put up eye popping numbers. Why not? Could be the next Haloti Ngata. Could be the next Amobi Okoye.

Honestly, not a fan of the pick. I have Poe at ~32 on my board. Too much hype around the guy for me to spend a high first on him. I'd rather go with another DT that was available.

In any case, you can make the pick however you like. You don't have to worry too much about what other people or fans think about the team, you are the GM and you answer to nobody :D Pick who ever you think is best for that team according to your own evaluation. That could be BPA, position of need, guy with the cool name, surefire HOF guy... whatever, but don't feel pressured to make a pick based on the fanbase or beatwriter's opinions.

We got some time until the next pick, as the Bills GM said he won't pick until this evening.

Well like I said, I'd like to reflect the opinions of the people who are more in tune to the Panther's progressions. It's really not even much of a topic other than which DT to get. With that settled, me being a "go for the gusto type"....Poe's the pick. Brockers, Still, Worthy...all good picks IMO, even other positions like Ingram or Decastro are definitely BPA. But a man that big who can move it and shake it like Poe just doesn't come around very often. Going for a splash, I might just have ended up with a world record setting "CANNONBAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!! !!!"

Interesting comments so far but the biggest reach for me was the Jonathan Martin pick. No offense meant but I would have thought him to be a last third of the first round at best pick. Though having said that I saw him anywhere from 20 to 75 on different websites.
After sounding a bit negative there I have to admit I've checked the site around 25 times the past 2 days seeing if I'm up next

I've seen Martin go as early as nine. It mostly depends on your feelings about Reilly Reiff, some people don't think he has what it takes to be a LT in this league and drop him in value, while Martin is generously considered at least the 3rd OT. I've seen him projected in the top half of drafts for months

Reiff is a RT so if you're in for a LT then Martin is the next logical choice.

We've seen with OT's and QB's that it doesn't matter if you're the #20 rated prospect, you still have a great shot to go top 10 because it is a premium drafting position.

That might change with the new CBA. Draft picks won't be getting paid $50 mil anymore so teams won't have as big a problem taking non-premium position players as high.

I went with Martin as i have him higher on my draft board.
Also the redskins in this draft (possibly in the real one) are in quite the pickle as there was no real BPA that would fit a real need.
It was either martin or floyd (again who i have higher then blackmon) but i feel that the WR group is not that bad and they will probably grab someone in FA

With the 10th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills select...

OLB/DE Courtney Upshaw

http://guysnfldraftlockerroom.com/sites/default/files/upshaw.jpg

Lacks the height (6'1") or speed you're looking for but, was very productive at Bama' racking up 31.5 tackles for a loss and 15.5 sacks the past two years. He can play standing up or with his hand on the ground which is perfect since the Bills can't decide whether or not they want to run a 3-4 or 4-3.

Brandon420tx
03-05-2012, 11:05 PM
I can see the Cards reaching for OL help here after DeCastro, Martin, and Reiff are gone since they don't have a second round pick. However I'm not much of a reacher and instead I'll look to help the Arizona Cardinals offense in another way.

With the 13th pick, the Arizona Cardinals select Michael Floyd, WR from Notre Dame. This should help Larry Fitzgerald with his double-triple coverage issues. The last few seasons rookie wide receivers have had about a 50% chance to make splash with their new teams, and the Cards gamble slightly on this one. Luke Kuechly is also one of my top 4 for the Cards who also consisted of DeCastro and Martin. LK might be a safer pick but Arizona could be desperate for some sexiness.

So ya, Michael Floyd
