Default NFL Offseason, HBT mock draft?

**EDIT - moved the list to this post for quick reference.

Here's who we have so far:

Unless I hear from some other folks before Monday, this will be the order of the picks. The clock starts for the Dolphins at 8 am on Monday morning, and they have 24 hours to make their pick. Once they have made their pick, the clock for the next pick begins and that GM also has 24 hours. Some of us have 4 picks, some of us have 3 picks. I tried to distribute the picks based on the teams that we wanted vs. the teams that needed GM's.

Anyone else get excited about football during the offseason like I do?

I enjoy the NFL offseason almost as much as I enjoy the regular season. I'm glued to the NFL Network this week watching combine coverage.

Free Agency starts in a couple of weeks.

The draft is in 2 months.

I'm a bit of a draftnik, I'll admit it. I have my own first round mock draft written down each year just to see how close I can get. It's sad, I know - but I'm a Lions fan. The draft is my Superbowl.

Would there be any interest in an HBT Mock draft? I'd be willing to organize it and handle everything. Basically everyone gets assigned to be the GM of a team and make a first round selection and or trade for that team. Obviously it would be best to have 31 people (SF does not have a first round pick and NE was forced to forfeit the 31st overall selection so there are only 31 and not 32 1st round picks this year), but we could double up on teams and have 16 people and it would still be doable.

If you are interested, reply here. If we get enough people we'll hammer out the details and make it work. First 30 replies get in... obviously I make 31. Teams will be assigned randomly at a later time.

Would you rather see teams randomly assigned to people or let them pick their favorite team on a first come, first served basis?

If we're picking teams, I pick the Lions, and Dude gets the Packers

Of course that is how I think it should work, but we may have a hard time filling up all the teams then.

If I have to pick for the hated Vikings, so be it. This sounds like too much fun to be an a-hole about it.

Bah! Pitchers and catchers have reported - the boys of summer are getting into game shape. It's time for BASEBALL!

Leave the winter sports for when there is nothing better to do!

You thinking of doing this in real time? That could be fun. I'll take the Pats (and watch them trade down). If we got like twelve people, we could each take like three teams, them "pick" for them in chat as the draft unfolds.
