For all the draft freaks out there in Who Dat Nation, your time has finally come. Those of you fortunate enough to be reading Da Chronic the last few off-seasons will remember our community mock drafts. And now, it's that time again.
I am looking for interested parties who would like to participate in this years community mock draft. Each member is assigned an NFL team, takes into account that teams needs and chooses the player they think that team will draft. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go ahead a check out what we've done previously. It's pretty popular stuff among football blogs during the off-season.
The write-ups that members provide can be as long, detailed and chock full of stats as possible or they can be short and simple. The former is definitely preferred but not required. The only requirement is that it's at least one paragraph, it makes a modicum of sense for that team, and it's written and emailed to me in time. That last point is key. Do not sign up if you are unreliable, irresponsible, undisciplined, unmotivated, and/or prone to tardiness.
In the event that demand far outweighs supply of positions in our mock draft and some members just have to be excluded, we will use length of CSC membership as the determinant, preference going to those who have been with us longer. I don't anticipate that to happen.
If you're interested, simply say so in the comment section below. When I've gauged interest and got the list together, I will send out an email and get the ball rolling. Emails will be sent to the addresses members used to create their CSC account so if you express interest, make sure you check that email regularly. Or, tell me your preferred email address in the comment section below when you express your interest.
Teams will be randomly assigned unless members have a strong desire or reason to represent a specific team (please let me know which team and why in the comment section). To avoid any fighting, I will take the Saints pick.
We will keep to a stringent schedule and members will know well ahead of time when their pick and write-up is due. Again, please do us all a favor and don't bother participating if you're unreliable, irresponsible, undisciplined, unmotivated, and/or prone to tardiness. I also ask if there are members out there who really like this stuff and don't mind the work, to let me know if they would be willing to serve as alternate and be able to put together a quick write-up in the event of a last-minute drop out.
So who wants in on the action?
