A couple of days ago, I posted the sign up thread for the Phinsider's Community NFL Mock Draft. In the end, 45 different people signed up for a slot, unfortunately meaning 13 people did not get a team. However, in order to get more people involved, I assigned draft positions, rather than teams. This means, for teams like the New England Patriots, Cleveland Browns, and Cincinnati Bengals, one pick will be made by one person, and their second pick in the first round will be made by someone else.
But that's okay, because, if this works like I hope it does, we will be able to spread this into the second round.
Here are the rules and how we will run this year's community draft. Each of you will email me your pick and an explanation about the choice. With the team assignments below, I will place the deadline time for your pick. If you are an even number pick (which, I will mark with an asterisk), I will need you to send me two picks, covering if the odd number pick in front of you takes your draft choice.
I am going with no trades this year - but if you think your team will trade out of the position, feel free to write it in the explanation of the pick. The only reason that I restrict the trades this year is, in previous versions of the community mock draft, trades started off reasonably, but by the end became silly. I would like to prevent that from happening this year.
My goal is to start the mock on Monday, which should give people enough time to learn their team's needs - given the first two picks are already pretty well known.
Each pick will get its own story on the front page, with two posts per day over 16 days to complete the first round. If everything goes smoothly, we will then continue into the second round.
