    Alright suckers, the Orange Mane may be gone, but the mock draft rocks on. I have to rewrite the guidelines because the old board got canned before I could get in and save the established rules. I may miss some shit, we’ll see. Here goes.

    1. The Mock Draft will start on Tuesday March 22 at 8:00 AM EST. This gives time for major free agents to sign and enough time for us to complete our selections before the April 28th draft. Each team will require a drafter to make selections for them. Some members that have teams of long standing (Jebures - Jets, Bowlenball - Steelers) will keep their same squads. The Broncos will have an owner who has never drafted for them before. To select your team, please list your top 3 to 5 choices and I will attempt to make sure everyone gets a team they can live with. For this year and perhaps beyond, we will do community selections for the Rams as they have given away nearly every damn selection. However, if someone really wants the Rams, they are welcome to them.

    2. We draft for all seven rounds and Bowlenball runs a nifty Undrafted Free Agent Round. All seven rounds of the regular draft are required for participation. If your attention span isn’t that long, feel free to just watch. Each drafter will receive a 12 hour window in which to draft.

    3. There will be three different draft threads to follow: The Discussion, Selection, and Trade threads. The discussion thread is just that; a place to discuss picks, banter, talk about how much Ludo’s pick sucked, etc. The Selection thread is just for your selections. Please list the time you made your selection so we know when the 12 hour clock starts. In your selection, you can list all of the players stats, 40 time, positive write ups, and a kick ass picture. After your selection, please PM the next person up to let them know that they are On The Clock. Finally, the Trade thread is where all trades can be discussed. PLEASE start trade discussions BEFORE you go OTC. Yes, you do have a 12 hour clock do with as you see fit, but the draft is more fun if picks are made quickly once you are up.

    4. Trades: We have no guarantee of who will have what team from year to year. So, no trading of future draft picks or current players on NFL rosters. You may trade draft picks in the 2022 draft AND the rights to any player previously selected in the 2022 Mock Draft. Simply announce the trade in the Trades thread and who gets what selections. Then PM Bowlenball and myself, and we will update the Main selection page. Trades cannot officially take place until we start on March 22. However, feel free to lay the groundwork for trades in order to get them approved when we kick into gear.

    5. Be ready for your selection. I know, we all have to sleep, work, watch our kids/cats doing dumb stuff, etc. We have two tools to help keep you notified and the picks coming quickly. If you feel comfortable with it, please give me your cell number in a PM. I follow the mock closely and can text when you are OTC. That is all I ever use the cell number for, unless I strike up a Broncos chat text with you; that has happened with a few mock drafters over the years. However, I never misuse the cell number or give it out to any entity. Another tool is the priority list. If you are going to be up soon, but have to go to bed or work, please PM a priority list of players you want to myself (JCMElway,) Jebures, and Bowlenball. One of us will be up and around and will post the selection for you, and that keeps the draft going. On your PM, just put ‘PRIORITY LIST Pick ##’ in the title. We will not open the list until you are OTC. Also, space the selections out so we don’t see them all on the same screen, so no sniping of your target. Anyway, we’re all honest blokes.

    6. The draft order will be posted on the first post of the Selections thread by myself or Bowlenball. When posting your selections please post them in this format:

    John Elway, QB, Stanford.

    This makes for easy copying, pasting, and formatting. To help everyone keep better track of who has been selected, there will be an alphabetical list of players selected. This will appear on the first post of the Discussion thread. Please check the alphabetical list before you select. If you take a selected player, you may re-select, but the next player will be considered to be On The Clock and may select.

    7. No name dropping, please. If a player has not been selected, please do not discuss them in the discussion thread. A drafter may be keen on a player and if their name gets dropped prematurely, that may cause them to get snapped up more quickly. This does not really apply to first rounders or other players that are widely known.

    8. We have a UDFA round that will start by April 20 at the latest. Bowlenball will post those rules, but that does give us a deadline to finish this thing. If we get to April 15th at 8 AM EST and are not finished, we will go to a six hour clock to speed things along.

    9. The dreaded pinch drafter. If someone misses a selection, the pinch drafter will select for them. Don’t know who this is yet, but usually we don’t have to use them much. If someone misses a selection in rounds 1-2, the pinch drafter will make their pick immediately. If they miss in rounds 3-5, the PD will select for them after three selections go by. Missing rounds 6-7, six selections will go by before the PD is called in. In later rounds we have a bit of latitude, but in earlier rounds we need picks in on time to keep bigger draft prospects from sliding when they shouldn’t.

    10. OK, that’s it. I will have teams/GMs soon and Bowlenball will have a draft order up a bit after that. I may update these guidelines if I have missed anything. And as always, don’t suck and try not to get butt hurt.

          So, I probably know 5 or 6 makes from guys that will be drafted in the first round this year. This will be interesting. Feel free to kick me out and find someone new I'll try to keep up with the draft as best I can though and not screw up too bad


          • #6
            The pick order is now posted in the selection thread -- we lock this on March 22nd, so be sure to check all your picks in the list to confirm that they're correct.

            The NFL has posted an official draft order on their website, and they seem to be updating as picks are made (they sent the Raiders picks to the Packers about an hour after the trade was announced). Here's the link:

              Man I love all these massive trades going down before our cut off, so much intrigue and drama!


              • #8
                Reflecting on last year's draft as the Vikings. Feel free to do the same with your draft classes. How did they look in year one?

                21 Vikings OM Mock Draft:

                #14: Christian Darrisaw, OT - Virginia Tech

                Was actually picked by the Vikings. Looked pretty decent after missing 4-5 games with injury. Starter.

                #58: Jevon Holland, DB - Oregon

                This was a home run pick to date. Thought his evaluation was easy. Holland was awesome for the Dolphins and an absolute playmaker right away. Gonna be a stud.

                #90: Jordan Smith, EDGE - UAB

                Didn't do squat. We'll see.

                #119: Kendrick Green, OG/C - Illinois

                Started 15 games this year. They signed James Daniels to compete so we will see if he earns a spot on the OL this year. I'd expect him to.

                #120: Osa Odighizuwa, DT - UCLA

                Started 12 games this year. PFF grade is doo doo, but I think it's pretty clear he is getting PT in Dallas moving forward.

                #134: Demetric Felton, RB/WR - UCLA

                Swiss Army knife for the Browns that got some PT and reps due to injuries and ST ability. His testing was dog shit, but all that guy did was make plays with the Bruins. Gets to play with Deshaun Watson moving forward. Stock up.

                #143: Ihmir Smith-Marsette, WR - Iowa

                Got picked by the Vikings for real. Only played in 8 games. 5 catches, 116 yards, and two tuddies on the year. Has return ability too. I think he will get better and have more reps this season.

                Very solid overall for year one impressions, IMHO.


                • #9
                  Here's my 2021 class:
                  #13 - Rashawn Slater OT: Team/player match + massive on field performance. Crushed it.
                  #47 - Liam Eichenberg OT: I forgot about this guy, but apparently he started 16 games for the Dolphins. His PFF score says he was bad.
                  #70 - Tutu Atwell WR: Went on IR early. Maybe it's tough for a 150 lbs guy to make it in the NFL.
                  #97 - Patrick Jones II DE: 4 tackles on the year. Get Canton on the line.
                  #118 - Aaron Banks G: Played 5 snaps on offense. Higher PFF grade than my 2nd round OT at least.
                  #159 - Shi Smith WR: Barely played, 6 catches on the year.
                  #185 - Jaret Patterson RB: Spot duty all season, ended up with 68 carries and 10 catches, not bad I guess. I was super salty about this guy going undrafted.
                  #241 - DJ Daniel CB: Got signed as a UDFA by Jax but apparently didn't even make the PS. This guy doesn't even have a ****ing wikipedia page, that's how you know he was a good pick.

                  UDFAs - I scrounged a bunch last year, I'll only list the ones who did anything
                  Luke Farrell - Drafted in the 5th by Jax. 4 starts, 7 catches.
                  Isaiahh Loudermilk - Drafted by the Steelers, played most of the season, even started 2 games?
                  Roy Lopez - Drafted in the 6th by the Texans, started 15 games for them apparently!? Wow I'm really good at this.
                  Pressley Harvin III - Booming punts for the Steelers all year.


                  • #10
                    Forgot about Ernest Jones, who went in the third round to LAR, that I got in UDFA. Played in 15 games, 7 starts, 61 tackles, 1 sack, 2 INTs. Super Bowl Champion!

                        I possibly got 2 franchise QBs in same draft, George Paton better call me to consult this year


                        • #13
                          Echols was a steal. Figured your sneaky GM skills would bid major bucks on him. Got rid of him as a top target because of that. Another year, another jebures hot stove!


                          • #14
                            Ok lady and gentlemen; it’s almost time! Shananahan and the Jags will be OTC at 8 AM EST on Tuesday! If he wanted to pick around 11 or so Monday night that would be fine.

                            Let’s do this!


                            • #15
                              BTW, a note to all: keep your noses clean during the mock. If you get banned during the mock consider yourself replaced for the entirety of the draft.

                                Noted! Are there any new rules I need to be aware of here that might sneak up on me? Not that I'm planning to stir anything up, but I'm still scarred from the time Taco suddenly flicked a switch and banned me for making fun of Josina. I thought that was our official pastime.

                                      FFS I just noticed there's an additional 3 picks in the draft this year, I need to change a bunch of cells in the scoring spreadsheet now.

                                        This is probably the least prepared I have ever been for one of these

                                          Lol I only paid attention to the QBs for the last 2 months, now I'm purging all that data and trying to get up to speed on everything else.

                                            Jebures, Ludo, Dbroncs and myself are pinch drafter by committee. Here is what I just sent to them:

                                            Gentlemen, we are the pinch drafter this year. If someone missed their pick, first guy in will select that teams biggest need. 2nd one in will pick their favorite ranking site and take highest rated player at that position. If one of us is within 5 selections we are not involved in pinch drafting.

                                            Don’t miss your pick and this post is irrelevant

                                                You guys know where to find me if Dom sends me into exile!

                                                  I've ran the profootball networks mock draft sim probably 300 times over the past 2 weeks (really really bored at work)'s familiarized me with who should go about where and in the process, I've read into a number of guys.....this is probably the most prepared I've ever been coming into one of these.

                                                  sadly, I am going to lose my Carson Strong Bet
