    Up for discussion, but given the per-day process, I’m thinking one mock will be flexible enough to cover a variety of scenarios– maybe even better than the multiple mocks of previous years’ contests. Your thoughts?

      i was interested in submitting 3 mocks – (1) what think DQ/TD will do; (2) – Paddy O’s “fantasy” mock; (3) – Paddy O’s realistic mock (such as drafting Conklin at 17 (most likely really gone) vs. drafting Whitehair at 17.

        I’d be fine with multiple mocks, but what if some folks only submit one or two of them? Gets confusing on how to crown a winner. Also, I’m a bit nervous thinking I’ll be keeping track of additional categories of mocks on this page, and the scoring of them, given the three day process. But hey– if that’s what y’all want to do, we can make it happen.

    I expect that a trade down will garner additional players not for day one, but for days two and three. Since we will all have the info on the additional picks before we post our second and third day mocks, all our mocks will have the same number of picks. Still, those who predict a trade down on day one should be rewarded with extra points. Hope this makes a little sense. If you see a hole in my thinking, please let me know. The rules are a work in progress.

      For you other question — can we predict a trade down at a pick other than 17 — I thought we could update the scoring rules for days two and three after we see how things go on day one. Yes, it’s a little confusing, so input is welcome.

    Or maybe I didn’t understand your question. Correct players and positions are rewarded the same points whether from trade down or not. The extra points are given on simply whether a trade occurs or not.

    My thoughts exactly. And toss in some extra credit questions. Will make it competitive through the third day.

    My one cent… Doing it this way would allow keeping the first day’s mock, whether it has a trade or not, and to get points for your guess. If we have a mock with trade and a mock w/o trade, would you toss out the first day’s wrong mock?

    Upon further thought, I think you’re right. We should have two picks on the first day (trade/no trade), and bring forward the best score. If no other suggestions, I’ll make the rules change.

    Ok, don’t know if I am doing this right, but I have time (trying to find a place to live, believe it or not! – maybe a manufactured home if I can get some land to park it) –

    Totally ignorant mock draft, trying to follow the template above:

    Pick #17:
    Position: LB
    Player: Darron Lee

    Trade #17:
    Position: LB
    Player: Su’a Cravens
    Trading Partner: Seattle

    Lowest Ranked First Rounder: OT Le’Raven Clark (ranked 93rd on drafttec) I think there are always 1st round runs/reaches for OT’s(Sam Baker anyone) and this guy has huge upside and great wingspan, measurables, etc. Late round choice based on humongous potential – with his wingspan, maybe one of his arms = both of gator Bakers arms.

    If this isn’t submitted right, please let me know.

    I just want to put my picks out here all at once…in case I get to busy…No particulars/reason other than I want to pick people that I think no one else will pick …I have NO EXPECTATIONS with TD and Co. and I am convinced that they pick with as much logic as I do.

    #17 – Shaq Lawson DE Clemson
    #50 – Jermery Cash S Duke
    #81 – Connor McGovern G Missouri
    #115 – Ben Braunecker TE Harvard

    In the spirit of competition, the Warrior submits the following:

    Pick #17:
    Position: LB
    Player: Darron Lee

    Trade #17:
    Position: None
    Player: None
    Trading Partner: None

    Simply, the move to trade picks in this draft or any future draft is not a prudent move at all. We have to roll with what we have tonight!!

    Lowest Ranked First Rounder: Eli Apple (CB) #36. Do you REALLY think that the Panthers want to face the duos of Julio Jones and M. Sanu or Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson with the cornerbacks that they have listed on their depth chart at this time? I do not think so.

    Pick # 50: T.J. Green – FS – Clemson. The 100th graded player on drafttek.com could be a steal at # 50.

    Trade # 50: T.J. Green – FS -Clemson. Once we are locked on to a guy, why change?

    I second-guessed myself with Neal at the last second and lost. I’m not going to do it twice even if I’m wrong. Double Gator. Woof.

      Arno, if you don’t watch out someone will win this draft contest without getting a single draft pick correct!

    WOW, I just scraped in under the wire!!

    Got in a hurry, just grabbed a lineman for 7th round, don’t know if the Falcons talked to him or not. Wanted a DT, but no time and no names jumped out.

    Arno – You had some great ideas for this years mock and I’ll give credit to Dewey for the idea of allowing voting each day before that day’s draft. To me it was more interesting that way. It should have been an advantage knowing who had been drafted the day before but the results were about the same as last year. Maybe we’ll do better next time.

    Thanks again for running the show – you do a great job considering it doesn’t pay much.
