Draft day is always a very hectic time around the forum. In an effort to cut down on multiple posts for each pick, we've had people sign up to make those posts in the past. We will be doing the same this year.

What does this entail?
You will sign up to participate. We will need 7 posters, one for each round. If we don't get 7 posters, I will select a couple veterans who I have in mind to do a second/third round. When the Lions make a pick or a trade, you get to make the post for that announcement.

What should be included in the post?
A reasonably sized picture of the player, their measurables, a short bio, a link to any sources used, and anything else you'd like to include to make the post creative. Typically the first post would be just info about the player. Any additional commentary can be reserved for the next post in the thread.

FAQ
*We will need people assigned to each round. The Lions may not have a pick in that round at this time, or they may trade out of your assigned round. Ether way, the coverage will be necessary since teams do move around a lot.

**Please keep in mind when signing up that the draft will be spread over Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. When you post to sign up, please include the day(s) that you will be available to be online to make those posts. For example, if you can't be around on Friday, let me know, and I will consider you for Thursday or Saturday.

***I will try to get everyone who signs up a part. However, I will lean toward people who have experience in posting news in the past whether it be generating traffic with various topics or past draft announcements for various roles. Regardless, don't hesitate to throw your name out there for a spot.

Sign ups should include:
1. Your Username
2. The day(s) you are available
3. Your rounds of preference (I can't guarantee anything)

My rebellious nature is probably going to announce the Thursday selection if I am not selected for the Thursday spot... and probably going to no show the announcement if I am selected for the Thursday spot.

I will post the schedule at the end of the day and PM everyone. There's plenty of time for others to get in on this if anyone else is interested.
