    I know several people have done some mocks over the past few weeks and sometimes it is fun to simply go back and look at them. Would it be possible to create a sub forum just for mocks so that they can be all together?
    Just a question.

    We have had a mock draft forum every year for our multi-participant mocks...but we can make sure all the mocks go there too when it is up.

    Members sign up to be the GM of any of the 32 teams. And then we start the draft with the real draft order and go through 3 rounds, 24 hour clock, of drafting. We allow trading but only for draft picks from the current year. We had 2 last year.

    I had a good one last year. I was the Cardinals and got Cadillac Williams, Justin Tuck and Odell Thurman. If only the Texans could draft like me :tiptoe:

    Are these mock drafts supposed to be picking who we realistically think our representative team will pick, who we want our representative team to pick, or just whatever player we happen to like regardless of the team we represent?

    Little bit of them all. I personally tried to take players who would fill holes on the Chargers team.

    I had a pretty good draft. :) Keep in mind that it was in January before the combine and before all the prospects shook out, but I think I did pretty well in the early run.

    :challenge

    I traded down and drafted an new Oline anchor and went with front 7 defenders after that.

    David Baas, C/OG, Michigan
    Chris Canty, DE Virginia
    Demarcus Ware LB, Troy State
    Luis Castillo, DT, Northwestern

    I think I did decently as well.

    Barron has been solid in STL.

    Cody missed the entire year :(. Though San Diego DID go on to take an OLB, so I had the right position there.

    Nicholson was high at the time. I guess I fired a blank there though, as he's not starting in TB and went alot later than I took him.

    Well done. How has Baas done this year? The other guys are well on their way to excellent careers.

    He has had some injuries that have kept him out of games but I'm sure we will get a good look at him in week 17's Bush Bowl.
