Over the next month leading up to the NFL Draft on April 22nd, we here at Bleeding Green Nation will be hosting a one round, in-depth mock draft generated by you, our beloved posters. At the very least, it should be a great way to take everyone's mind off of the McNabb trade rumors. Plus, we might all just learn a little something about this year's draft class. So, without further ado, here are the guidelines:
- The teams will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Reply to this article with your team of choice to get your assignment. Remember, the Seahawks and 49ers each have two picks, so there will be two different users covering those teams.
- Since the draft is now only 23 days away, we will be focusing on two picks each day, a "morning" pick (12:01 a.m. to 11:49 a.m.) and an "evening" pick (12:01 p.m. to 11:49 p.m.).
- Once all picks have been assigned, the user will have the given twelve hour period to write a short article about their draft choice and why the player would be a good fit for the team. All articles should be emailed to the address listed in my profile (email@example.com) They will then be formatted and posted to the front page.
- Standard fanpost etiquette applies. In other words, make it at least 75 words, legible, and sane (unless you happen to land the Raiders pick, in which case, go nuts).
- The first selection deadline will be on April 1st, 11:49 a.m. If you need to submit your selection early because of work or school, go right ahead, but make sure everyone ahead of you has already made their selection.
- Since this is only a one-round draft, trades are unfortunately not allowed.
UPDATE: All the slots are currently taken! Thanks to everyone who volunteered to participate. If you missed the deadline and would still like to be involved, just let me know and you can be an alternate in case a poster misses their deadline. Imp, you're up first!
