Warpath Mock Draft (Order Set-Post #31)

I figured that since we're close to the Combine now, it would be a good time to bring this up. I was wondering if we were going to be engaging in the mock draft this year.

If so, I would like to volunteer for the Saints and either the Bengals/Falcons

If we do, I'm in, I don't care what team (as long as it isn't the Cowgirls).

Re: Warpath Mock Draft

two of us organized it last year, and while everyone was eager to sign up, a lot decided not to show up when it actually happened (weeks of notice to figure out if they could be online) and very few actually took time to do any research even with all the information provided, compiled, and linked in the thread.

i'm down, but unless it's people that actually spend time studying the draft, it's really not going to be even 50% accurate.

Is the idea supposed to be to project what will happen, or is it to suggest what we would do in that team's situation?

Back in 2006, it was about a projection of what would happen.

The truth is though, we don't know what teams are thinking at this point, so those are pretty much one in the same concept at this point.

I don't know what Matty, SGG, and Smootsmack will think about this, but perhaps it would run most efficiently if we restricted it to VIP members only. Wouldn't be a bad way to create more VIP members.

Re: Warpath Mock Draft

As long as people don't use the mock as a fourm to drum up publicity for a player who they like/know personally, it should run OK.

We'll need the OK from Matty for that though.

I'm for anything that will make it happen quicker, and more efficiently.

Either way, this would be a mid March sort of deal, we want to wait for the big FA money to dry up and see who fills what need in FA.

Don't forget Brud, TMC, Summo, Canuck, and Gmanc too.

Re: Warpath Mock Draft

Sounds good, I didn't participate last year, but I'm a lot more into college football this year and would like to participate. I have some good ideas with what to do with the Falcons and I know what the Saints SHOULD be doing...can't guarantee they'll do it.

Re: Warpath Mock Draft

I think we should put some serious thought into how to reorganize this. It was a total dud last year and I am pretty sure it will turn the same this year. I am not sure I have any ideas but let's try and think about some out of the box ideas on how to make this interesting and more importantly up participation.

Part of me wonders if we should restrict it to something 5 or 6 members who form a team and consult and then we roll out a couple picks a day and then let the rest of the board debate it. It might be time consuming for the 5 or 6 but it would be better researched and more "accurate"
