    Would you be interested in being the GM for a team in a mock draft? I have some ideas on how it would work (below) but there's nothing set in stone right now.


    1. I suggest going 3-4 rounds to keep long-term interest going.

    2. Trades will be allowed.

    3. The Patriots GM will be chosen by lot to keep things interesting.

    4. PM me if you are interested. Can you provide five teams you'd like to GM in order of preference (and excluding Patriots) and I'll use this list to determine which team you GM.

    5. I'll need at least 10 people taking part - it won't really be worth running with any lower. Obviously if there isn't 32 volunteers, then people will be running multiple teams.

    6. You need to be prepared to be committed.

    7. It could be interesting to run multiple mocks this way between now and next May (every two months perhaps) with GMs keeping the same teams.

    Those are some thoughts but if you have any suggestions, feel free to suggest away. If there's sufficient interest I'll come up with the formal rules over the coming week and would be looking to start next Monday.

    So PM me with your list of teams if interested.

    I've decided that I'll just take offers on a first come first served basis so here is what we have already:

    Jacksonville Jaguars - Get It Shawtaay
    St. Louis Rams - Patsfaninpa
    Houston Texans - patsinthesnow

    I also think what will be fair is if I do a draw from the Pats pick and then I'll take over the team of the new Pats GM.

    Edit: Continue to give me a list of teams though just in case more than one person requests the same team whilst I'm away from the computer.

    I'll be using the draft order from great Blue North Report which you can see at the below. I'll put up a full four round order, including trades, just prior to starting:

    Guys, I haven't forgotten this. Unfortunately there aren't many of us but I will be looking at this again today but you're going to all have to double or triple up on teams. Expect a PM in the next day or two.

    OK Guys. Getting ready to kick this off if you are. Firstly, I've allocated the teams to each of you.

    First off, the Patriots have been awarded to Wilfork #75. Congratulations. However, because of this, and because he had already chosen the 49ers and their excess picks he will only get two teams. Everyone else gets three. Here's the allocation:

    Wilfork #75 - SF, NE = 8 picks in first 3 rounds
    PatsfaninPA - STL, ATL, PHI = 10 picks in first 3 rounds
    Patsinthesnow - HOU, NYG, GB = 9 picks
    Avenger - CLE, BAL, KC = 10 picks
    Stelfans - CAR, OAK, DAL = 9 picks
    SirApropos - DET, MIA, CIN = 9 picks
    LloydBraun - Chicago, BUF, NO = 9 picks
    Luxusdk - NYJ, JAX, SEA = 9 picks
    Leemo - TB, DEN, MIN = 9 picks
    Fester - PITT, SD, ARI = 8 picks
    Manxman2601 - TEN, IND, WAS - 6 picks.

    I tried to be as fair as possible in allocating the extra teams.

    Rules

    1. I will start the mock when I've had PM confirmation from every member participating.

    2. When you make your pick, please do so in the following format:

    3. You are OK to trade with other GMs (but not with yourself). Once you have agreed a trade, please PM me immediately with the details so that I can change the order.

    4. We want to keep this moving along as much as possible so please check back regularly and pay attention to where your next picks are. Bear in mind that we have GMs all over the world so time zones will play a part.

    5. If you haven't picked within 24 hours then a pick will be made for you. To prevent this, if you think you will be away from your computer for some time, you can pm me a list of players you want picked for you.

    6. Because I'm organising this mock and might have access to your preferred players, I won't initiate any trades.

    7. I will post an updated mock and order on a regular basis.

    8. Only prospects on the CBS prospect list can be drafted.

    9. Feel free to fire any questions my way. I'm off all week so should be able to keep on top of this process.

    10. Have fun!

    So I can't trade Ryan Mallett to SF for all 8 of their picks? Damn! :D

    If there is someone that isn't on that list that we think should be can we all agree before we start to include them or would that make things too confusing? The only guy I think is missing is David Yankey from Stanford.

    This looks like a lot of fun though, great job manx!

    Personally I think it's less confusing to stick to the list but I'm fine if everyone agrees on a prospect.

    No problem, I think that's a pretty comprehensive list to work off.

    This is a good idea, we should all make a list of who we have on the trading block and probably who are our untouchables then we can pm each other if we are interested.

    SF Trading Block
    CB- Carlos Rogers
    OLB- Ahmad Brooks
    RB- Frank Gore

    Untouchables
    S- Eric Reid*

    I'm willing to listen on everyone on the 49ers if the price is right.

    Patriots Trading Block
    QB- Ryan Mallett
    OL- Dan Connolly
    DE- Jake Bequette
    S- Tavon Wilson

    Untouchables
    QB- Tom Brady
    TE- Rob Gronkowski
    LB- Jerod Mayo
    S- Devin McCourty
    DE- Chandler Jones
    LB- Rob Ninkovich*


    *Just to keep some realism these guys are untouchables because of contracts and the cap hit involved in any trade.

    Edit: I'm willing to listen to any offers on players and picks, whether moving up or down.

    As the Steeler's GM, I'm not interested in players who are not on rookie contracts as I think I need a serious rebuild and cap-purge.

    However I'm interested in seeing what you want for either the SF or NE 1st rounders as well as what interest there is for the Steelers 1st rounder as well as their second rounder if the Steelers trade down.

    I'm waiting on one more confirmation. Unfortunately that person picks fairly early in the first round so I want to give him a chance to confirm. However, we SHALL start the mock at some time today.

    @Luxusdk

    That wasn't a bad offer but you were right to turn it down. If Jacksonville didn't come out without a franchise guy (and Alex Smith isn't that), then this would be a disastrous draft regardless of who else you draft.

    Looking at the value of the offer (and I don't mean any disrespect to Avenger the GM) that values Alex Smith as a top 10 overall QB and that he isn't. I could see why Avenger tried it though.
