Exclamation 2014 Texans Talk Mock Draft SELECTION

This is NOT a sign up for the mock draft. Just a thread to start discussing when we want to do it, and to give everyone a heads up well in advance so when the time comes to sign up they aren't left out because they didnt see the signup.

The NFL Combine is February 22-25 and the NFL Draft is May 8th. I suggest waiting until after the combine to do our draft. I think it goes without saying, but if you choose to participate you should know more than just round 1 prospects, and be available everyday to update your "big board" or make a selection. If we want to take the slow, let everyone have a day to pick approach, then we would need to start in February before the combine.

What are everyone's thoughts/concerns?

I see no point in doing anything before the combine. And I agree about knowing prospects further down the board. It never fails that the further we get into it people just stop showing up and it turns into group selections.

Generally its first come first served. But you need to be a regular around here. Someone we can count on being available/reliable to do the work (research) and make picks. I do not think we have 32 posters who fit the mold so most everyone who is a draft fan gets a team.

Default Re: 2014 Texans Talk Mock Draft

We need to wait until after the combine is completed. You will know which pick the Cowboys have, you will know compensatory picks, and you will have accurate measurements for all the players. There's still a lot of debate about the QB's size, weight, hand size, etc... That could shake up a lot of people's picks.

The NFL Combine will be April 12-13.
The NFL Draft will be May 8-10.

That gives us nearly a month to get through this before we run into the actual draft. I think that is plenty of time.

The NFL Combine is February 22-25 and the NFL Draft is May 8th. (Is anyone else loving the fact that the draft is so early?) I suggest waiting until after the combine to do our draft which gives us 10 days to complete our "speed" mock. I think it goes without saying, but if you choose to participate you should know more than just round 1 prospects, and be available everyday to update your "big board" or make a selection. If we want to take the slow, let everyone have a day to pick approach, then we would need to start in February before the combine.

What are everyone's thoughts/concerns?
My suggestion would by for 16 responsible people to take 2 teams each. This eliminates the stragglers that sign up and draft for 1 round then quit. Last yrs mock draft went really smoothly. (Thanks Blake/Dutch/76 for helping make this happen.) So members that participated last yr get 1st shot at signing up this yr.

I dont think it wouldn't hurt to go ahead and sign up our teams. For example, I have been keeping up with the Bears and Cardinals vaguely.

I find that after the 1st week or two of FA is over is the best time to start the draft. I moderated last yrs draft with a lot of help from others. If somebody else wants to moderate this yrs draft that would be fine with me. I'm more than willing to help out any way that I can.

I want to thank all of the members that help make the TT mock draft the best one that I've participated in. The mock draft helps me learn about other teams need and how various members value players. Thanks for helping me sharpen my draft knowledge, so I have an idea where players should be slotted in the real NFL draft.

I think that after the combine would nice. I also agree that it might be easier to have 16 people with two teams, but I don't want to exclude anyone either.

Is FA after the draft?

I like your time frame. It usually takes 2-3 weeks to finish a mock draft.

Free Agency starts March 11, 2014. We will have a month of free agent movement before the combine is complete, which is plenty of time for things to shake out.

NFL Key Dates calendar: http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/87...fl-key-dates-p

I think Monday April 14th is the ideal start date.

Oh, and I'll be happy to do the Google Draft Spreadsheet again. Last year's was fun

So its decided. We will start after the combine. March 3rd?

Lets start "sign ups" on Monday, the 27th. You throw your name in the hat. A team with a first round pick will be assigned to you.

WAS and IND do not have a first round pick. We can make those teams group picks unless someone REALLY REALLY wants to be their GM.

I'd prefer to have a first round pick, but I feel confident in the lower rounds of this draft so I'd volunteer to take either team, or both, if nobody else was interested.

Are you willing to take on the lead moderator role? What do you think about the 2 team 16 person format.

If your OK with that Give me the Bears and Cards if I miss signup day.

The "real" combine is in Indy in late Feb. There are zillions of regional combines - mostly for players who aren't invited to Indy. "I was 3rd string on my D3 team, but I gots mad skillz."

I will help moderate the mock. Last year was a nice team effort. I think some people might be left out if we do 16. But will leave that decision up to the consensus.
