If you thought our community mock draft was fun, I've got something that'll blow your socks off.
Let me introduce to you our first ever Canal Street Chronicles community draft board. The good people over at Dawgs by Nature, the SB Nation Browns blog, came up with this genius voting machine and are sharing it with us. Just another reason why being a member of such an awesome network of blogs can't be beat.
Your votes will be tabulated to create a big board of the top NFL draft prospects. While Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis and company are hard at work right now evaluating college players from around the country and ranking them as part of their draft plan, we will be doing the same.
Detailed instructions can be found after the jump. Please read them carefully.
I'm looking forward to seeing the results. And feel free to discuss your voting in the comment section.
How this works
Please vote only once!!
Rank the top five available players in the order you would like to seem them drafted by the Saints. Pretend you're in charge. Take talent, value, need, and character into account if and only if you feel that the Saints should be doing the same when evaluating a draft prospect. If you feel players should be ranked based on talent alone, then do so.
This is not a mock draft.
Don't predict what will happen. This does not take into account what other teams will do before the Saints pick. You never know what will happen or who will be available.
Don't predict how you think the Saints will rank players. This is how you, as a member of the Canal Street Chronicles community, rank the players.
Players will receive 5 points for every first place vote, 4 for every second place, and so on. They will receive 0 points if they are unranked. Total points from all ballots will be added, and the five players with the most votes will be taken out of the pool of available players and put up on the big board.
Again, please vote only once!!
You can track the results at your convenience by checking this website.
I will leave voting open for 48 hours, give or take. I will then post the results and we'll get started all over again on positions six through ten. We'll go as far as we can until the draft.
