Are we doing one this year and if so, are we going to be using the same format?

Happy for y'all to do it, but if you do, please contain it to a single thread, and please don't change the thread title.

They just took Fant in the first round. Of those teams, bears have the bigger immediate need.

Edit: this isn't about that

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

i'd be in again this year

I was thinking about starting this thread soon, but you beat me too it.

I can put up the list of GMs from last year and the returning GMs can check off who they would like to be their main team.

We are going to have plenty of room for other people to join as well this time around as most people had 2 teams last year.

If we need to double up like last year, we can do that closer to the draft.

Please reply to this message and check in as GM of your main team.

Second teams will be distributed in the future if needed.

I'll do Jets then.

edit: don't mind sticking with titans and/or eagles(AZHokie has iggles) if required again.

I won't be able to get to it until this afternoon.

Happy for the Pack to bring me back as the GM for a second year

I'll be happy to be the GM of the Superbowl champions The Kansas city chiefs

It's an illusion

I'll stick with the Pats and Seahawks

Please choose one for the moment. I'll let you have dibs on the second team if we need to double down again.

Hopefully we can recruit more people to draft this year.

What's

I'll go with the Pats first

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Checking in for the Colts

The Falcons are my main team. This year, if I have to take a second, I'd like to get one from the AFC.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I'll do it again this year and my main team is the Panthers.

Checking in for the hapless Detroit Lions

hey, with the third pick you could very well be hapful

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

"Hapful" anagrams to "Half up".

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Thanks for the encouragement, but let me know when this changes...

I will be back for the Steelers.

Checking in for the Browns, the Bungles are open if someone is a sadist.

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Seasonal Brew means High ABV for football season and standard the rest of the year.

Checking in for the Washington Redskins

I can run the Ravens again

Danny Coale is like 7-11, he's always open

I'm considering joining, but can I get a quick rules recap?

I propose an April 6th start date this year, we could move it back if we feel the need to do so.

Basic Rules:

The draft will run from 9am to 6pm Monday through Friday until the start of the NFL Draft (Thursday, April 23rd) or the completion of the 6th round.

Once a team is on the clock, they will have two hours to make a selection. If a team goes on the clock after 4pm, their two-hour window will roll over to the next day.

For example, if you go on the clock at 4:30pm, you will have until 9:30 am to make a selection. Picks may be made between 6pm and 9am if GMs are online and following the draft thread.

The time limit only applies during the 9am to 6pm timeframe.

If the two hour time limit expires, I will make a pick using any list that the GM for the team has sent me in advance (send lists to the email address in my profile) or in the absence of a list, I will use the GBN Big Board with a little discretion so as not make an obvious dumb pick (i.e. Kansas City won't be taking a QB in the 1st round this year).

If a GM misses two consecutive picks without providing a prospect list or making some form of contact with me (email or posting on the draft thread) the spot will be reassigned to one of the TKPers who have expressed an interest to fill the vacancy.

We also allowed trades within reason last year.

Thanks! I think that's a bit more commitment than I want since I recently changed companies. Good luck and have fun!

I can tell you it's not that bad. Everything is tracked clearly, you just need to be ready to answer in the 2 hr window.

Would you like to reconsider given that we are all home bound right now?

hey now not all of us are home bound

Good call. Didn't mean to come off insensitive if it did :(

now we know you're not essential 😉

I'm not, but I work from home already for the Government... so I consider myself lucky!

Now

four rounds? five? we definitely didnt make it through six last year

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Let's try to keep it at either 4 or 5. I tried making trades involving 6th and 7th round picks and got in a lot of trouble.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I think we should hold on to the 6th/7th round picks, if only to use them in trade scenarios. I did multiple trades last year which involved swapping later round picks in order to make the trade values balance out. Whether or not we get to drafting those picks is another thing altogether.

I say we nominally hold a four round draft, shoot for five, and then allow for six and/or seven as stretch goals only if we finish early.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I'm fine with that

What's
Important
Now

Part of the reason we didn't make it that far last year was because we had everyone picking for 2 or even 3 teams.

We kind of ran out steam.

What's
Important
Now

We ran out of steam, but I think fewer, more active drafters made it go much faster

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

We can play it by ear this time around. If we get enough GMs than we can attempt more rounds. If it's like last year, we should just do 4 rounds.

What's
Important
Now

I'd do a team that gets left out! I'm sure Homebrew has my Brownies locked and loaded

LT or bust with that 10th pick!!!

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Seasonal Brew means High ABV for football season and standard the rest of the year.

Can we just draft the entire Minnesota and Wisconsin OL's? That'd be awesome, k thanks.

LT or busted?

What's
Important
Now

LT was busted is more like it, in more ways than one.

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Seasonal Brew means High ABV for football season and standard the rest of the year.

I'd love to snag the Browns but I see HomeBrew has both Cincy & Cleveland.

He claimed the Browns in the Combine thread

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Would you do Cincy's draft?

What's
Important
Now

I'd do Cincy if it's open

You got it sir!

What's

You are officially on the clock. Time limit will not be enforced until Monday morning, but if you pick early it will speed things up!

How are there multiple people wanting the Browns? What is this madness? Here I thought I was the only one

Whatever. It was one bad year.

I'm in if gobble gobble is ok giving up the Eagles.

all yours

edit: I missed a comment above for the team I wanted so I am out. Good luck to all.

Which team?

So help me if he says the Browns

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Seasonal Brew means High ABV for football season and standard the rest of the year.

Yeah what team? I have no issue swapping if you want in only for a particular team.

it was highlander's panthers

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

You weren't supposed to tell anybody, but you are right. Instead I'll watch his every step and criticize his decisions at every turn! He will understand what CJF felt like after signing day when I am done with him!

Proof that this Mock Draft belongs on TKP.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I feel like the next two weeks would be a great time to start this. We could probably get all 7 rounds in.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Not a bad idea, but team needs are evolving as free agency rolls along. We could do it, just have to be aware of free agent signings changing your team needs. Other than that, I say let's do it.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I can get everything together to start Thursday or on Monday (Whatever you guys want to do).

With how everything is going right now, I would think some people might be a little more interested in joining and I would like to invite people to join as a team GM.

What's
Important
Now

I'm down for Thursday or Monday. But yes, we need to get more GMs involved. I'll take a second if needed, would prefer AFC.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I would also be willing to take a second team, preferably NFC.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I'm guessing that a Thursday start is out, so maybe Monday.

VTFootballGrad, can you produce an updated list of GMs, so people can know which teams are available? I would think at this point only one team per poster, so that we can get more people onboard. We can assign second teams closer to Monday.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Yeah I was going to do that tonight. I will have time.

Unless someone who doesn't have a team yet wants them, I'll take Miami. They have so many picks so that should be fun.

I'll take the Rams if they are still available.

You got it.

What's
Important
Now

I'll take the LA Chargers this year....

I missed this when updating the list and someone else claimed it. I can try to get that person to take another team, unless you would want to reconsider.

What's

Now

Nevermind the other person is flexible.

What's
Important

Should we just autodraft for the teams that do not have any GMs?

Last year got taxing.

What's
Important
Now

Who is going to set up the autodraft list for each team, in that case?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I don't mind doubling or tripling up if we need.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Neither do I.

That is a great, great gif for these trying times. Nice pull. Leg for you.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I have an idea to get some other people involved. Give me until the end of the day.

What's
Important
Now

I'm flexible. I'm not a Chargers fan so I'm good with switching if the other person is a fan or just really wants them.

No worries you got the Chargers.

What's
Important

is still thing still happening?

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

Yes this is. Would you like a remaining team?

What's

If you mean, this, then no.

But if you mean the TKP draft, then I surely hope so.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

where's 904, Newport, and notorious? they'd get their teams back if they wanted

newport claimed the chargers above

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

mfiering has had them

He just changed to Arizona for the love of the draft.

What's

I'll take the aints I mean the Saints...

i'm in, just fell asleep at the wheel. I see the team list is pretty full at this point but i'd take a random team if someone is doubled up. I'm a Titans fan, but didn't have them last year either so i'm not picky.

Your going to be the Bills looks like I thought I had a GM for them, but it got mixed up.

What's
Important
Now

I said I would take the Bills and the Panthers, but i will drop the bills and just do the panthers if someone else wants them..aint no point in having a waiting list if you have one person doing two teams...

We have someone who claimed the Panthers, and I just didn't catch it at first.

I'm in the middle of putting together the draft thread right now.

Ill take the bills as well if no one takes them👀

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

I'll take the Bills...this is going to be fun.

I'll take any NFC team remaining, with preference being the Seahawks, as I had them last year.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I'll take the titans if they are left

It's an illusion

I'll take the Bears (unless someone ones them). They have like 2 picks so it shouldn't be much work...

Still have one more day before two teams are needed. I'll keep everyone who wants doubles in mind.

Nothing we can do, but I understand his reasoning.

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Damnnnnn i didn't get a chance to make a pick😢

It's an illusion
It's all an illusion

I don't. Yes, this is not a fantasy football site, but what else are we supposed to be talking about when there are no VT sports? Is this not why there is an OT board? And with respect to bandwidth, given the lack of VT sports, is his bandwidth suddenly off the charts because of this?

I think it was a bit of a petty call, and one reason why I am considering not reupping TKPC.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

👀 i would consider editing this comment

I've literally already sent in an email to stop my TKP scrip.

Joe talked me out of it for a bit, but probably the nail in the coffin on the choice at this point. Again, not his fault, but without this type of distraction there is little to no content to draw my interest to the site.

For the record, I didn't try to talk you out of anything. I asked for some context because it was out of the blue. Either way, I don't want you "chasing bad money" again. I canceled your TKPC subscription moving forward.

Edit: Nevermind

Right before the Eagles (me) got to make their pick!

I get it, but the thread was like the one actual thing keeping me checking the site. I can only read about recruits we won't get and sports that arn't being played so much.

Not a fault, just the reality we are all living right now
