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 last off-season will remember our community mock draft. Well, it's that time again.
I am looking for interested parties who would like to participate in this years mock draft. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go ahead and check out what we did last year. It's pretty popular stuff among football blogs during the off-season. Each member is assigned an NFL team, takes into account that teams needs and chooses the player they think that team will draft.
The write-ups that members provide can be as long, detailed, well-written 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.
Our membership here at CSC wasn't quite nearly as high last year as it is now, yet we still had pretty good participation, so this year I am expecting to have more people interested in our mock draft than there are teams in the league. But that's okay. If necessary, we can make it a two round mock. In the event that demand far outweighs supply 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.
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. 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. 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?
Also, we will be having an open thread later today for those of you watching the NFL Combine live. Come on back.
