OK, I hear all of you yammering out there. Sheesh! Pipe down already. :approve:

We need 31 intrepid drafters to sign up for the draft. Please note, the draft is 7 rounds and we want folks who can do the whole draft, not just the first round. It lasts from the end of February through the end of march/beginning of April. It has been finishing before the actual NFL Draft starts. If you know you are going to have time constraints and that won't let you check the Mane daily for that period of time, DO NOT SIGN UP.

Most of you know the drill. If you have questions, shoot me a PM.

Otherwise, GAME ON!!!

No big deal, PM me if someone drops out ahead of the draft.

In my humble opinion (IMHO), this shouldn't be first come, first served. The priority list should for the OM mock draft should ideally be as follows:

1) long-time participants in good standing (i.e., always get their picks in on time)

2) more recent participants in good standing

3) new blood with large post counts

4) long-time participants who have a spotty track record (should participate with a co-GM)

5) new blood with low post counts (should participate with a co-GM)ff

SouthStndJunkie falls firmly into category #1 -- no reason why he should be bumped in place of someone else just because he didn't see this thread in time....

The Broncos should be a team that is randomly drawn from a hat so everyone involved can get a chance to manage their favorite team. That is one team that should never be reserved.

The Broncos should be a team that is randomly drawn from a hat so everyone involved can get a chance to manage their favorite team. That is one team that should never be reserved.

Actually, the Broncos should always be co-GM'd so that every year 2 guys get the chance. Everybody wants a chance to do it and with only a single GM every year it could be 10 years before somebody might get the chance. With 2 GM's, twice as fast. Most who are involved in this draft will get the chance to be a Broncos GM within 3-5 years. Both Shananahan and myself had the Broncos last year and it worked out fine and we both loved the chance at drafting for the Broncos.

Yeah, I second that.

In fact, 3 guys ought to do it and vote on each pick IMHO. That way 3 people get a chance at their favorite team.

I believe CBF1 has already drafted for Denver in the past? If so, he isn't eligible.

But I don't know why you'd quibble about him. CBF1 has been a solid mock draft contributor for years. Never missed a pick as far as I can remember.

My preferred 3:

1. packers (had them for 3 years or so now, plus i'm stuck in GB for life because of family so I always hear a ton of Packer draft talk)

2. any other team is fine

3. prefer to not have the Broncos as we all spend months speculating who they will draft

Thanks again for running this JCM, it's always a fun way to kill some time and have something football related until the draft.

I thought we were sending preferences via PM in a week or so?

I did the Bengals last year and enjoyed it. I'd like to try a new team, but if that isn't possible, I'd go with them again. Feel free to keep me out of the Broncos selection process -- someone cooler than me needs to get a shot at that. :)

(1) Bears -- Never done them before, but would be an interesting re-tooling and a challenge. Like the idea of trying to figure out what they may do with the new coach.

(2) Bengals -- Did them last year and would gladly do them again. Fun team.

(3) 49ers -- Super Bowl runner ups. Been a long time since I drafted this low (since I was the Packers before Phoenix took over) and always like having to weed through the end of the round turds up for grabs.

. . . and I'm done. :)

I will send a PM reminder to the Man In Charge if this was out of bounds.

Yeah, it went off without a hitch and was a lot of fun. Working with somebody else also opened my eyes to some guys I hadn't heard about or paid attention to.

I don't have any team that I really want to draft for, so I'll just use my requests to list the teams I don't want to have:

1. Oakland Raiders
2. Kansas City Chiefs
3. San Diego Chargers
