Anyone interested in doing a mock draft here on the Planet?

I figured we could do a two round mock, with each member choosing a team to pick for. Each team gets a 24 hour window to get their pick in, or they get skipped. We could start it in mid-late March, after FA gets in swing, to get a better idea of what team needs are.

This thread is just a feeler, to see if we have enough people interested. We'll do something more official when it gets closer to the draft.

Current "GMs":

1. jspchief
2. coryt
3. Kotter

I'd like to get 32 people to be in it. We'll let each member take one team. The sooner we pick teams, the more time we'll have to do a little research.

So far it appears to be going over like a lead balloon.

Well since I'm first in (except you, but I assume you'll be commish running the show, and not picking :)), do I get to pick for KC?

Hint: Say yes.

Actually, I was hoping to get all the members that are participating before picking teams. Then I would start a thread that allowed for first come, first served picking of teams.

Or I could set up a random number list that would allow people to pick a number, not knowing what team that was tied to until all numbers had been chosen.

I had planned on taking the last remaining team on the list.

The separate forum, and the fact it's a bit early are likely hindering the response....

Count me in though. I'd like to participate. :thumb:

I think that would be preferrable, personally.

I just wanted to give the guys that frequent this forum the first shot at getting in. I know the guys in here will be more likely to give an honest effort.

Ok then, I'll take #20. Just kidding, you have a good plan in place, and I'm cool with that.

I'll try and figure out a way to randomly assign the numbers to GMs.

By the way, I'm making this up as I go. If anyone has suggestions, feel free to chime in.

The biggets obstacle we'll have is the time between draft picks. We need to give people enough time to get on the site and pick without it being a hassle, but we can't go days in between picks due to time restraints. We'll probably have to rely on picks getting made faster by the more regular posters, so that every team doesn't take the max time allowed.

You've got 32 planeteers, representing each team. If a particular rep for Team A is not on-line, and doesn't pick for an hour or so (pre-determined clock), then have all other 31 reps(or as many as are on-line at that time) pick for that team by open suggestion(NOT a poll), majority rules. Then move on to the next pick.

Don't create a new post, I'll move this to the main forum whenever you want and we can sticky it for a day.

When do you plan on having (day) this Mock Draft?It will start probably early to mid March, and could run for several weeks depending on how quickly people get their picks in.

It's not like a fantasy draft where you have to set aside a certain time and date. As long as you check in to the Planet on a frequent basis, you'll be able to find time to make the pick.

Are you planning to do the first round only? Two round draft. Anything beyond 2 rounds would just be a guessing game.

OK, count me in.

I can do enough research to do 2 rounds for a given team.

Hell, I do a lot of research without this as motivation.

We haven't assigned teams yet.

I wanted to wait until FA started so people would get a better idea of team needs. In another week or so, we may have to forget about FA and just get started.

looks like we need around 6 more people?

Need 9 more people. I'd say we'll give free agency about one more week, then get this thing started.

I don't consider myself in the top tier of football minds around this place, but this sounds fun. I'll give it a shot. And don't worry about me being active, I have a low post count, but I'm an hourly reader kinda guy :)

I'll be horrible, but it should be fun.

Getting the #1 pick would be sweetness. The Texans would get a dominate player...one that they should actually pick.

Are trades allowed?

PHOG
03-17-2006, 11:32 AM
All right, I'll try it, if'n you still need someone.

Never done a mock draft, though. But it would be interesting.

jspchief
03-17-2006, 05:08 PM
Okay, the Gm spots are full. PHOG got in 6 minutes before Stumppy for the last spot.

I'll randomly draw for teams tonight, and put together the rules, then I'll PM everyone.

I'm going to tentatively set the start date for Wednesday the 22nd. I'll start a new thread for the actual draft.
