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.
There needs to be a couple of people who will make the choices for those with emergencies or other excuses for not making their pick in a timely manner. There are always one or two who can't get their act together for some reason or other.

I don't know if I participated in it last year but I've done a few in the past here and I would be interested in doing it again this year. I would recommend drawing teams two weeks in advance so we can study the team we're picking for.

Yes, but not until they are announced by the NFL during the combine. The Baltimore and Dallas coin flip for draft position will also be determined then.

If you or anyone else wants to sign up for the mock draft, just go ahead and fill in the spreadsheet I made. It's a lot easier to track this stuff on there rather than sorting through dozens of pages of posts.

Link here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...aEc5SGc#gid=15

JCTexan, you were not a part of the draft last year. The list of participants was:
Code:
Team	General Manager
Kansas City	Wolf 6151
Jacksonville	Blake
Oakland	srrono*
Philadelphia	Texans Seminole
Detroit	76Texan
Cleveland	Texan4Ever
Arizona	Steel B Texan
Buffalo	Bong*
New York Jets	dsr 23
Tennessee	Senior Stan
San Diego	Wolverine Fan
Miami	Texans Seminole
Tampa Bay	Ndevine7
Carolina	Honoring Earl
New Orleans	htown fan32
St. Louis	RT22
Pittsburgh	Honoring Earl
Dallas	Rock-N-Randy
New York Giants	htownfan32
Chicago	Dutchrudder
Cincinnati	Corrosion
St. Louis	RT22
Minnesota	NC Texan
Indianapolis	Rey
Minnesota	NC Texan
Green Bay	Senor Stan
Houston	Corrosion
Denver	Senor Stan
New England	Coon
Atlanta	Bong
San Francisco	Wolverine Fan
Baltimore	Rock-N-Randy
We only had a few GMs with multiple teams, so I don't see why we would need to do only 16 GMs this year. Let's just get the folks who wanna join signed up, and then we'll figure out who gets what teams. There are only a couple teams with very few picks.

Comp picks weren't announced until mid to late March the past couple of seasons. This year the draft is pushed into May, so it might be even later before announced this year. Just an FYI

I'd rather just give people teams that they like, but I think with 32 people involved, that makes it a bit difficult. We shall see how the list shakes out and I'll discuss it with the other draft admins.
I think you should do something that Divides Rep Points by Number of posts.

Anyone can say dumb stuff for years, not anyone can say quality things in a limited amount of time though.

If yall decide to do seniority or number of posts though that is 100% fair too and I'd be fine with it.

If you look up the page at one of dutchrudder's posts you will see a google doc to complete to express your interest in drafting for a team.

That's not actually how it works, but that is a discussion for a different time and forum.

Guess I'll have to start neg repping the noobs then....

Nah, we'll figure something out. I'd like to give people their first choice teams if possible, especially if no one else picks that team. I mean, why bother with complete randomness when someone really wants a specific team nobody else cares about? It's just better to dole it out based on interest if possible.

The Texans will of course have a lot of folks interested, so that one will be random.

Good idea, but you might want to only add names to the list that actually have the Texans listed in the spreadsheet. Some might not want the scrutiny that comes with the pick.

Yeah, that's the idea. If you want to pick the Texans, make it one of your 3 choices. If you don't get the Texans, then I'll look at second and third choices.

On the first pass, I'll see what teams were rated #1 alone by people. Do a random draw for anyone else who listed the team, and move on to the next #1 choice. The idea would be to try and fill teams based on interest first, and then go with the 2nd and 3rd options.

I'm thinking there needs to be a weight system. #1 choice gets 5 entries into the random drawing for X team, #2 get 3 entries, #3 gets 1. That way if someone really wants a team in particular, they can put more points towards getting that team. I think it's a bit more fair to do it this way, and hopefully people will be more happy with the results.

On the first pass, I'll see what teams were rated #1 alone by people. Do a random draw for anyone else who listed the team, and move on to the next #1 choice. The idea would be to try and fill teams based on interest first, and then go with the 2nd and 3rd options.

I'm thinking there needs to be a weight system. #1 choice gets 5 entries into the random drawing for X team, #2 get 3 entries, #3 gets 1. That way if someone really wants a team in particular, they can put more points towards getting that team. I think it's a bit more fair to do it this way, and hopefully people will be more happy with the results.
Awesome

Man, you put a lot of thought into this.

Correct. I sat out last year because I was too busy with work and couldn't put in the time. I'm good to go this year.

I picked for the Texans the year before and got blasted for taking Reuben Randle when everyone wanted Stephen Hill.
