Rules/Overview:

- Every team will draft 45 players and 3 coaches. The coaches are HC, OC, and DC. If you desire, you can have your HC be one of your coordinators and draft an extra player.
- Rounds 1-11: One player per pick
- Rounds 12-22: Two players per pick
- Rounds 23-27: Three players per pick
- You can draft your coaches at any time, as early/late as you want.
- All positions should be drafted (including special teams).
- Only current NFL players may be drafted (recent draftees included).
- Player contracts are not important unless a player decides to hold out in real life (which would be bad for your team).
- If a player is injured in real life, it's bad for your team.
- All NFL and NCAA coaches are available for draft. Retired/out of work coaches are not (i.e., Cowher, Gruden, etc.)
- If you can't be online for your pick, please pm me a big board.
- The objective is to build a Super Bowl winning team for this year.

BFMD = Browns Forum Mock Draft


What is it?
The NFL has disbanded all its teams. All players are thrown into a pool and are available to draft. New franchises are started, and you're one of the GM's. We draft our teams, building them however we want. This is not a fantasy football draft. We draft full teams, all positions.

How does it work?
The original draft order will be randomized. From there, we'll have a serpentine draft (2nd round will be reverse order of the 1st round, and keep the pattern throughout). Will we draft a full 53-man roster? Probably not. Last year, we drafted 45 players, but it ultimately depends on how many participants we have. In addition to players, we'll also be choosing 3 coaches (head coach, offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator).

How does it end?
That's up for discussion. 3 years ago, we appointed an outside panel of judges who power-ranked all the teams. The past years, the ball was dropped (mostly by Reggie), and we didn't do any kind of judging/ending. I'd like to talk about it.

Why the thread?
I want to not only see who's interested in being part of drafting a team, but I'm also asking for help in running it. As far as I'm concerned, the more the merrier (in terms of participants and people willing to help admin). One rule that we enforced the last couple years was that each team had to have at least 2 people. I'd like to keep this rule, as things have gone smoothly, and teams stayed engaged.


TL/DR:
Answer these 2 questions:
1. Do you want to take part in this year's BFMD?
2. Would you be willing to help run it?


Also, post any questions, if you have them.

1. I'm in!
2. No way, Jose.

Also, a panel of judges sounds sweet. I like that idea a lot.
