A Message from the Commissioner
.
First and foremost, I sincerely hope everyone the community, and their families are okay. I'm going to do my best to keep things moving while remaining flexible given the circumstances. That being said, if there were ever a time that we could use a bit of a distraction, this seems like it.
.
.
Alright, let's get this thing rolling. While we are starting early, the clock won't officially start until Monday, March 30th at 9am.
.
.
This year we have some visitors from a New York Giants forum that I belong too, that will be GMs of certain teams, so we don't have to pick for multiple teams. If you would like their email addresses to work out a trade, please let me know by emailing me directly at thebacreturns[at]gmail[dot]com .
.
.
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 or 7th round (depending on how much steam we have this year).
.
.
Make sure that all picks are new comments on the actual thread. When making picks, announce your team and your pick. Have fun with it and add a cool GIF of your player if you have one.
.
.
Please remember to REPLY TO A PICK TO DISCUSS IT so we can keep the thread uncluttered.
.
Rules of the Draft

  • 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 TheBACreturns [at] gmail [dot] com) 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.

.
Please utilize the Embeded Google Sheet, as it is open to the public and the expectation is that you add your pick to your spot as you make a selection. (Please remove the pick from available prospects tab/sheet, while doing so.)
.
.
The spreadsheet contains draft order (RD1-7) by team, team needs, and GM with a fairly comprehensive list of prospects based on the GBN Big Board (as well as several other prospects that did not make the GBN Big Board).
.
.
Good luck!

The NY Giants are open for business with the 4th pick.

11th pick (NYJ) is available

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

The Falcons may be amenable to trading the 16th pick.

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

if you're interested in moving up in the first round at all, i'd be interested in something like:

ATL (you) gets: #11, #79 (1445 value)
NYJ (me) gets: #16, #47, #157 (1459 value)

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

More interested in moving back, honestly. ATL has a lot of holes to fill, so the more day 2 picks, the better.

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

that's fair

Mfeiring is trying to figure out how to TKP and asked me to throw out that he is putting Kyler Murray on the trading block for some picks if anyone is interested.

Colts are interested, offering pick 34.

I texted him, and it looks like he might be dropping out as the GM. He signed up for a TKP account, and doesn't have access yet.

Okay, well if anyone else is offering their young, starting quarterback, the same offer is on the table

On the BBI Thread:

For those without a 1st rd pick or want to move back into the first, the Titans will listen to offers.

When we say who is on the clock, can we give a time? We don't have a big 15min (or two hour) timer counting down.

Sure

With the second pick in the TKP NFL mock draft, THE Washington Redskins select: Chase Young, DE Ohio State.

.... and now because of terrible previous team management I don't pick again until round 3.

I feel you

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

If Sweat can take even a small leap this year and Young is as advertised, don't think I'll be complaining about it.

Detroit is on the clock until 11:18

I have been trying to figure this out myself the last few days as I have seen it multiple different ways on different sites, but I believe the Ravens own their own pick in the 4th round (#134) and sent their compensatory pick (#143) to Atlanta as part of the Hayden Hurst deal.

Edit: And I think (#157) from Atlanta, went to Jacksonville for Calais Campbell.

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

Do we need to make a change to the board?

What's
Important

Yes. According to NFL.com's Draft Tracker, the Ravens hold pick #134. I think that's about as authoritative an answer as you can get on this subject. I made the change in the spreadsheet.

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

Good call, that also confirms that 157 went to Jacksonville so i'll make that change in the spreadsheet as well.

Draft day lads. Let's get after it😃

Cut and divide it all right in two

Cincinnati (Sam Jesse) is on the clock. Well, at 9am he's on the clock, but he can pick now and kick this thing off.

Que the final jeopardy song😂

He has been nudged a few times already.

Chargers, Jax, Carolina. Miami has put an offer on the table, let me know if you are interested in the 4th pick.

We can just go ahead and pick Joe Burrow for Cincy, right?

Whatever. It was one bad year.

I apologize. I've been running crazy....with the 6th pick the LA Chargers select Justin Herbert QB out of Oregon...

[mod edit: noted and reposted above, thanks! we are trying to keep each round's picks contained and in-line for easy review and minimal confusion]

With work being surprisingly busy i need to withdraw my name from GM of the GB Packers.

Anyone want to become the Packers GM?

Silly question, but as I normally look at TKP on my phone, what is the keyboard command to jump to the next new post on a laptop? Need to know for future reference as this thread gets bigger

there are 4 big buttons at the bottom of the page on your screen.

On my phone there are, but I don't see them on Chrome

oh N is new, M is me or my post

Shift-N does previous new, and shift-M does previous my (your) post.

Hey all, sorry to crash the party, but I decided to close this down. TKP Isn't a fantasy sports site, and this was cool and neat when it was something the TKP community exclusively participated in. But after reading the original post and noticing folks registering from other forums to participate, it seems like we're hosting a multi-site draft. I'm going to consider the bandwidth and server infrastructure constraints ask that you find another way to facilitate this endeavor.
