Fellow football fans,

With the final draft order carved in stone, I now call upon your participation. I need 29 of the best, brightest, and most eager of you.

Every day after the “select-ees” are selected, an article authored by you, the reader, will grace the cover of

The Rules

You are the GM. There are currently 29 teams in the first round. You will assume control of a franchise and you will elegantly and ardently, elucidate your selection for your respective team. The article should ideally be 200-300 words in length, but if you want to write more, you are welcome to.

This means that if you get assigned the Cleveland Browns, you will have two articles to write. One article for pick 4, and another article for pick 22.

To Enter

All you have to do is email me your top four teams you would like to select for, your pen name, a contact email for the other participants, and a couple sentences about you (where you’re from, who you are, and etc) and why you want to participate.

Send your emails to —  Just to be clear, draft picks will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. If someone beats you to your top team, I will go down your list and assign you the next available franchise.

The Twist

Oh, and here’s the twist. All participants will receive a list of contact emails of the other participants. Why? Trades are in effect for this interactive mock draft. If you want to select higher, or even lower at that, you need to email the reader assigned at that spot and work out a deal.

    This looks like it will be a lot of fun.

    Especially when you have two picks, Mr. Browns.

  • Jon

    Can I have the Rams?

    Mr. East . . . I will have to do some thinking here . . .
    If this just got posted . . . how did these other ‘players’ get their assigned teams?
    Nothing is carved in stone . . . I’m still mad we passed on Orakpo.
    I am not the best, brightest, or most eager. 
    ‘You will assume control of a franchise and you will elegantly and ardently, elucidate your selection for your respective team.’
    I don’t remember ever elegantly and ardently, elucidating anything.
    Now I have to look words up?  Ardently – ‘expressive of or characterized by intense desire or emotion.’
    ‘The article should ideally be 200-300 words in length, but if you want to write more, you are welcome to.’
    So basically, you need me to send you my personal information, pick four teams I really know nothing about, write a sports column as their GM, and be ‘ardent.’
    Gee . . . . Is that all?  How entertaining of you.

    Already taken buddy, sorry. I will let the writers pick after the first wave of readers is over.

    Tom, I know you’re better than that.

    You have some of the most elucidative comments this site has seen.

    I think you should shoot me an email with your top four teams and take part in this experiment!

    Still free. All you have to do is send me an email with them at the top of your list before anyone else does.

    Tick… tick… tick…

  • Tom9798

    Mr. East . . . I will give this some thought. 

    Thank you for the compliment.
    I tend to take things a bit too seriously.
    Maybe as one gets older, their skin starts to thin out in direct proportion to their hair.
