2016 NFL mock draft signup for BGN's annual community mock is coming soon

It's back! Signup officially begins on Thursday, March 31st.

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

The BGN Community Mock Draft is coming back! After a very successful run last year, we're doing it again this year. The start of the actual 2016 NFL Draft on April 28th is just around the corner, so we're ready to begin very soon. Please make sure to check out the rules below.

In 2015, BGN member slickpablovick finished as champion with a 92% community approval. In honor of his great accomplishment, slickpablovick will own the rightful claim to pick No. 8 for the Eagles this year. Who will be the winner in 2016? It's anyone's guess, but you have to play to win so get those keyboards ready. There are only 30 spots up for grabs since there are only 31 picks in the first round this year. The New England Patriots don't have their pick since they're cheaters.

REMINDER: Picking teams doesn't start until THURSDAY March 31st at 1:00 PM EST. This is just a "HEADS UP" post to give everyone a fair shot at getting their team of choice.


  • Just like in the past, this year's process will start at a specific time: Thursday, March 31st at 1:00 PM EST, to be exact. If you want to be assigned to a pick, just comment in the post that will appear on the front page at that time. Make sure to include TWO things:

    1) The team you want
    2) The email address where I can reach you immediately after you claim your pick

    TO REPEAT: ONCE YOUR PICK IS CLAIMED AND CONFIRMED by me in tomorrow's chart, I will contact you at whatever email address you give me. Mine is PE-BGN(at)mail(dot)com. Please keep checking your email so that we can get the process moving. If you do not receive an email from me after I have confirmed your pick, please contact me ASAP.

  • Teams will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. HOWEVER, you must have at least 300 comments or have been a member of BGN since January 1st, 2016 in order to participate. (Exceptions will be made as BGN staff sees necessary.)

  • There are only 30 slots open this year, so if you want a pick, don't wait around! You can only pick one team/selection.

  • The first two selections will be posted to the front page on Monday, April 4th. If you have the Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns, be ready to email me your picks ASAP. My e-mail is PE-BGN (at)mail(dot)com.

  • Everyone's pick will be due to me at least TWO DAYS before the pick is published on BGN's front page. The exact schedule for when picks are due can be seen in the list at the bottom of this post.

  • Two picks will be posted every business day (Monday through Friday, no weekends) until we reach the end of our mock draft, which, conveniently enough, should coincide with the beginning of draft week.

  • Standard fanpost etiquette applies - meaning please make your pick explanations at least 150 words long and try to use big boy sentences. Punctuation is also appreciated.

  • If you want some examples of how the picks went down in previous years, click [here] and [here] and [here] and [here].

  • The winner of the mock (and the recipient of next year's Eagles pick) will be determined by a community approval rating poll placed on each article. Don't forget to vote!

  • No trades - sorry, guys.

Keep an eye out for the selection post TOMORROW (Thursday, March 31st, 1 PM EST). Best of luck to everyone! Let's have fun. Here's when picks will publish:
