id be in. But not until BAC was done... I don't know if you would be willing to wait.

But I also don't think I would be able to commit the time to both drafts.

DRAFT THREAD POSTED! Please only post picks there. Discussion continues here!

Here are the rules.... *ALMOST* exactly as last year... BIGGEST CHANGE IS THIS: In previous years we are judged on a 10 year period of performance... it is going to now be 7 years instead of 10. It was a smart suggestion in another draft I'm doing and I think it's a more realistic timeline to use.

Rules:

1] The draft order will be randomized, and it will be a snake draft (1st pick in 1st round picks last in 2nd round).

2] We are drafting a full 53-man roster! So draft accordingly. Later rounds be 2 players per draft slot to speed up the draft. May even bump this up to 3 players per draft slot if need be.

3] You can run either a 3-4 or 4-3 defense base. You can draft 4-3 players and convert them if you'd like.

4] You cannot move offensive linemen from tackle to guard or from guard to tackle unless they have recent experience in the past 2 seasons playing there (dating back to 2015).

5] Every team must start at least 1 player from the team you're representing. For example, I'm a Bills fan, so I must draft and start a Bill. (The player selected cannot count as your rookie or your 2nd year starter.)

6] Every team must start at least 1 second year player. You cannot use a "favorite team" player as BOTH your 2nd year player AND "favorite team" player.
(For example, if a Bills fan were to draft Shaq Lawson, he could count as either their 2nd year player or Bills player, but NOT both)

7] Every team must start at least 1 rookie. You cannot use a "favorite team" player as BOTH your rookie AND "favorite team" player.
(For example, if a Titans fan were to draft Corey Davis, he could count as either their rookie or Titans player, but NOT both)

8] You cannot draft a rookie to be your returner, punter or kicker.

9] Special teamers are not considered starters. So favorite team players, rookies, and 2nd year players will not count towards your requirement at those positions.

10] We will be drafting coaches, a HC, OC and DC.

Quote:
Rules associated with having coaches are:

1] You can't bring retired coaches back into the league (ex. John Gruden, Bill Cowher, etc.).

2] College coaches can be taken.

3] Multiple current head coaches can be drafted and moved to either OC or DC positions (ex. Sean Payton can be either your HC or OC).


11] All suspensions and injuries are reset. Consider the players history with injuries and suspensions, however.

____________________________________________________________


How a winner will be decided:

Undecided on an official way of doing this as this almost always loses steam... we'll do our best to put up polls to decide a winner like we did last year. Typically go with a head-to-head format. Willing to listen to any outside input on this please!!!

How to go about building your team:

You're building a franchise.

Think of it as being judged for about a 7 year period of performance. Here's a basic way to think about it, which can be applied to any position you're drafting:

- Taking a player like Drew Brees might get you 2-4 years of guaranteed success max but you'll have to replace him soon and hope that player can succeed after him (i.e. taking Brees, but also trying to grab a Carson Wentz type player later in the draft).

- Taking someone like Patrick Mahomes is going to get you 6-10 years of success BUT, that's if he pans out, so he's a risk.

- Andrew Luck, while up for debate for some people, could get you a full 7-10 years of success given his age.

It's all how you choose to value players and their success going into the future. You're building a franchise, so you're putting together the team you want and see being successful. Part of the fun in this is seeing how people choose to build their team. Most tend to go with sustained success & drafting younger first.

Sweet. It might help people check back in. As always, I never want to tell you how to run your draft but if I didn't check back in today I'd have had no clue we started this up.

2 quick questions:

- is there a time limit for picks?
- is there a way to submit picks to someone? I know who I want at #3 unless they get picked at #2 and I don't want to hold this up if can't stay on all day.

I see ny92jefferies is sticking to his Giants players strategy Wink

Reminder to everyone, to make things go smoother, make sure you message the person after you, letting them know that they are on the clock.

In the past, we've started time clocks after the first couple rounds.

Hoping to do the same as we usually do... no timeslots for first couple rounds. Please PM people after you so we can move things along!

Epoch, just PM someone here and they can pick for you. I'm on often so feel free to send a big board to me whenever you won't be on.
