    A few suggestions/guidelines:

    1. Please check the Mane every day during the draft. Everyone will have 12 hours to make their pick when they are on the clock. If you know you are going to be away from your PC/tablet/internet access, please send a priotity list of who you would like to select to myself, Bowlenball, MUG and/or eddie mac. We will not look at the PMs until you are on the clock. If we have your priority list and your time to draft comes around, your selection will be announced and the draft will proceed at a quick pace. You can post pics and a breakdown of your selection in the Selection thread when you get back on the Mane.

    2. There will be an alphabetical list of players taken at the top of this thread. Please check that list before you pick. Please. If you have drafted someone who is already on the list, you may replace that pick, but the next drafter will be on the clock.

    3. We start the draft on March 17. Noon EST is the official time. If 24 champ wanted to start us off on Sunday the 16th, that would not make me angry.

    4.All selections receive 12 hours on the clock (OTC), until we reach Saturday April 24. At 12 AM on the 24th, we will go to a 6 hour clock for all selections.

    5. Please start trade talks with other drafters before you are on the clock. Nothing is more annoying when your time comes to draft and you announce "Hey! I wanna trade down!" If you have no deals on the table and it's your turn, DRAFT.

    6. We will pause the draft once we get to the end of the 3rd round for the NFL to announce the Comp picks. As soon as they are announced, the draft is back on. This is our first year with the draft happening in May, so I don't know how this will time out. We may not have to pause!

    7. The mock draft order will be frozen on March 17 at Noon. The actual NFL teams may do some trades and shifting around, but we will keep whatever order is handed to us on the 17th. All times for the mock will be listed in EST if there is no other time zone designation. (I live in Michigan. Deal with it.)

    8. We will have a Discussion thread (this thread) and a Selection thread. Please post all comments and discussion about the selections in this thread. The Selection thread may have your selections only. It is more fun if your selection post has a little description of your player with strengths, weaknesses, how the player fits on your team, a kick-ass photo, etc. We will also have a Trade discussion thread for that express purpose.

    9. Please PM the person who is next up in the draft when your selection is complete to let them know they are OTC. Bowlen, Eddie, MUG and myself will also PM folks as we see them to let them know they are up. Also, check your PMs frequently as that is how we are reminding you that you are OTC. If your PM box is full, empty it!

    10. When you select, please record the time you made your selection so we know when the 12 hour clock starts for the next drafter. The Orange Mane clock on the posts has not always been accurate in the past.

    11. We will have a pinch drafter for those who miss their picks to keep the integrity of the draft as it moves forward. The pinch drafter will draft for those who miss their picks: Immediately in rounds one and two, after three picks go by in rounds three, four, and five, and after six picks go by in rounds 6 and 7. if you do not like who the pinch drafter takes for you, that's too bad. Make your selection while you are OTC (or get a PM priority list to us) and you won't have to worry about the dreaded pinch drafter. Selections the pinch drafter makes are final. This year, our pinch drafter is Quoydogs.

    12. We will have a UDFA round after the mock is complete run by Bowlenball. It is not required, but it sure is fun; and our new scoring system takes the UDFA into account. I encourage everyone to take part in it this year!

    13. Try not to suck or get butt hurt.

      Should I listen to Roddy about the Falcons plans on defense?

      <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>If we get a D end in free agency it will have to be a guy that stands up because we are playing a 3-4 this year</p>&mdash; Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) <a href="">March 14, 2014</a></blockquote>

        So, tell me Arkie, is it an OT or Khalil Mack at #6?


        • #5
          we are doing 6 rounds of free agency, right?

            I'm torn between four players. Just have to wait and see which ones if any fall out of the top 5.

              The Cleveland Browns are reportedly in "purgatory" with the #4 selection. Do not like their options.

                I love pick 8...sooo many options

                  Is that the Vikings?


                  • #10
                    Steelers are in a HORRIBLE slot at #15 -- and also missing their 3rd rounder, which is where the sweet spot is in the draft this year. Sucks to be us this year.

                    Just finishing up the defensive side of the ball in my evaluations, and have already done the O-linemen on the offensive side of the ball. Just like everyone says, it looks like a very deep draft in general, possibly the best since I've been doing the OM mock in 2007.

                        Rule #14: No talking up prospects BEFORE they're selected.

                              Compensatory picks won't be a part of this, right? Aren't they announced after we start?
