Now that all of the compensatory picks have been announced it's time for the TT mock draft. Super Mario usually runs the draft but hasn't been on the MB in a while. He had Mod privileges.

Who would be interested in running the TT mock draft. I dont have time or inclination to do the job?

I can help run the draft if somebody runs the show and tell me what to do as I've never done it before.

Normally, I have time, but usually I can't spare Saturday during day time.

FWIW, weekends are traditionally down days (unless players involved are willing to make picks, in which case mod would update on Monday).

I will run the draft if I can get 2-3 people to help. Also I will need a list of what the selectoin order and admin privilges to sticky the draft itself with cimments and a separate thread to display picks that have been made for rds 1-7. How would I get these privileges?

Talk to Cak or Hookem.

I thought about volunteering but my "free time" is so eratic , sometimes early , others very late at night .... I just wouldnt be a good choice.


Looks like you get to be the fearless leader this go round! :slapfight:

I think anybody can pitch in, at least as back-ups.

Let's say both steelb and I know that we will be busy this afternoon, we can ask one of the back-ups to keep up with the thread for that time period.

I've helped SM with this in the past but I'm swamped at work now. Mostly all I did was help remind people of their picks.

If someone's picks were coming up, I was one of the people who would make their pick for them. For example, let's say your pick is 5 slots away, you could send me (or SM) your five top candidates and when your pick came up, we'd post it to the thread with whatever write-up or pictures you wanted... or we'd find a picture of the guy if we had to.

I'm not around enough to do that, now.

I'll take a team, I'm usually not terribly busy during weekdays or late at night on weekdays/weekends so if you need a backup guy to make picks I can make that happen as well.

I would participate as a team's GM, but I do not have the time and dedication to mod it.

The overall lack of participation after round 1 is disheartening and chasing down disinterested GM's takes the fun out of our mock. I would suggest doubling up on teams. Finding 16 dedicated members is alot easier than 32.

On the one hand, it's harder to finalize your pick the later in the rounds, so I can understand that.

We can always set up certain guidelines to move it along faster.

For example, we can solicit members (those who haven't done much mock drafts) to be assistant to those who participate.

There are members who don't watch a lot of college balls, but they might be more familiar with some players that they watched more often.

Some were more active before, but don't have much time this year.

Things like that.

We can ask the mods to have a one-time exception to put an invitation on the main board to attract more people.

Whatcha think?

I think we have enough people to run this thing.

Steelb, why don't you start the contacts and let's get this ball rolling.
I'm always pretty good as the right-wing man.

Lol, I guess I wasn't clear on it; I mean the main forum.

There are folks who don't frequent the college and mock draft forum because they don't have much time.


But anything works for me.

Steelb, just let me know what you want me to prepare for.

If I don't need to, I won't be signing up to be a player.

I'll be happy to double up with anybody as a helper in any capacity they want me to. You pros certainly don't need me.

Current count: 14 players plus 2 old-timers who didn't claim that they will join, but most certainly they will.

We've got half the slots covered already.
Don't be late to claim the rest.

I thought you were talking about the "official texans forum" ..... aw hell naw.


The main section of this forum , thats not such a bad idea.



I'll double up if its needed , you and SteelB can just assign me a second team if its needed.

That was actually SM that did that. He used his moderator privileges to make them locked but he could update them with the picks.

I've got a script that randomly assigns teams. Just give me which teams are up for assignment and a list of guys to assign them to and I can run that if you guys need it.

steelbtexan
03-19-2013, 08:04 PM
I assigned the following people these teams, since they were open to taking any teams.

Rock-N-Randy - Baltimore/Dallas
Blake - Seattle/Jacksonville
Honoring Earl- Pittsburgh/Carolina
Senor Stan- Tennessee/Denver
Bong- Atlanta/Buffalo

If there are problems PM me and we maybe can reassign some teams.

76Texan
03-19-2013, 08:08 PM
We might not need to advertise in the main forum.
If somebody knows of somebody who used to be in mock drafts that has not frequented the board much, may be you can ask them if they are interested in signing up.

It's filling up fast.

It could go many ways depending upon who's available .... Some of the other WR needy teams got them in FA which could push a better prospect down.


WR , RT , OLB , ILB , S , CB , NT , QB .... all need help.

Sign-up is now closed.
We will start with the mock draft on Monday morning at 7:00 A.M.

Mock Draft Guidelines:

- 4-hr time clock.

- If you won't be available to pick, send a PM to steelb/76Texan/Vinny with your wish list of 5 players in the order that you would like them to be selected.

- The draft will be open between 7am-7pm Monday thru Friday, and closed on the weekend.
(You can make your picks after hours and they will be added the next morning)

- If you are on the MB, please make your pick early and don't wait until the last minute.

...

Can a mod merge all the Mock Draft Threads with the Mock Draft Discussion Threads please.
