Some of you vets may recognize this thread from last year and some of you new guys, obviously, may not.

The NFL Draft is the highest viewing volume that this forum gets and thus it needs to run smoothly. I'll be back, yet again, to be your master of ceremonies while we hope for another excellent Vikings draft.

How Will Things Work?
Arrow I will create a thread, for each round, for general discussion about other teams picks. Near the end of each round I will create a new thread to aid in a seamless transition between rounds.

Arrow I will create separate threads for each Viking pick. The OP will start out as a skeleton post that I will add the player bio too later. All discussions about the Vikings picks will be encouraged to stay in those threads.

EX: http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=490074

Arrow Should the Vikings trade up/down/sideways I'll create a thread that will give the details of the trade and allow for a discussion on that subject. This year I'll be making one trade thread where they will all be posted. The separate trade threads didn't have a great deal of discussion last year. I will update the title of the thread to reflect the most recent trade and update the original post with every trade.

Arrow Following the draft I will make a "Draft Class" thread where we can further discuss, in detail, our impending draft success. I will also post UDFA signings in that thread.

Football's Future Draft ProTip
Due to the increased website traffic page load times will be slower than usual. One thing you can do to combat this is go into your profile and change the "Board Setting" near the bottom of the page from FF to subsilver. It simplifies the page and I actually like the look of it better, and have left it that way.

Draft Schedule
Thursday - First Round - 7:00 pm CST
Friday - Second/Third Round - 5:30 CST
Saturday - Fourth-Seventh Round - 11:00 am CST

I took those days off at the beginning of the year. Laughing

I still don't like day 1 is only the first round but what can you do. I think I'm going to switch it up this year and go to the Vikings draft party.

I won't be able to watch any of the draft this year Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

On the other hand, I'm taking my annual trip up to Detroit to see some family/Tigers games, and I'll be around some people who actually know what they're talking about when it comes to football for once (plus the Lions are my 2nd team seeing as how half of my family is from the Detroit area), so yay to upside!

Agreed. Day one should include the first two rounds. Start it at 5:00 or so.

Thankfully I work a M-F 7-3:30 job so I am glad I dont have to deal with messing around with my schedule. I remember what that was like.

I will be around during most of the draft as well, I am hoping for no epic break downs on the forum. Laughing

Like the Packer fan reaction to the Justin Harrell pick.

Daddy hasn't been a moderator in quite some time now Very Happy.

I'm doing the draft threads again due to getting the green light from both mods, disaacs and vikingsrule.
