    Announcing the 2012 BoltTalk Mock Draft to be held at noon PST this coming Saturday, April 21, 2012. Anteater Charger and I will be the organizers this year.

    Please reply to this thread with the team that you wish to represent in the draft. Single requests for a team will be honored. Multiple requests will require that those reps be picked at random from a pool of teams to include both those requested by multiple users and those without a rep.

    Final draft order as of 12 noon PST, 4/21/12 will be used. There will be NO TRADES allowed in this mock. The mock will officially consist of the first round only. If folks are available and wish to continue with following rounds, feel free to do so. You will be given 3 mins. to make your pick. If not entered by the end of the 3 mins., that pick will be made by Ant or myself using BPA based upon team needs. If you have designated a backup team rep, make sure that you list this in order to limit confusion.

    Ant or I will post the final teams/reps here on Thursday, 4/19. This will give you a couple of days to research your team needs and make clusters.

    We will post another thread on 4/21 to enter/track the draft choices and provide any final info. I do not anticipate using the chat function as it can be unreliable for some folks with slower connections (like me :) ).

    This is the date. If you absolutely can't make it but still wish to participate, I will provide an email address where you can send me 4 picks in the order you wish considered and I will post the pick for you. Should all 4 of those choices be gone, Ant or I will choose BPA based upon team needs.

    Ant or anyone else planning to participate - if I have neglected something related to this event or you have a constructive suggestion, please chime in. I've participated in several of these but never organized one so I'll welcome your help to make this a fun time.

    I was given the Chargers last year so I will bow out of requesting to be their rep this year. On that note, let's get the ball rolling. Request lines are now OPEN. :abq1:

    Here's the official 2012 draft order TO DATE:


    1 Indianapolis Colts
    2 Washington Redskins (from St. Louis Rams)
    3 Minnesota Vikings

    It's 1 team per person so yes - if you get a team with multiple picks you make all of their picks. I'll get you my email info.

    Ant, how do we send PM's here? I seem to only find the messaging board for individual members but that appears to be open for anyone to view.

    No, you'll only have to announce the player. In the actual draft thread I'll provide a basic format to follow, something like "With the xx pick, the team name selects player name, position, college.

    This is separate to the Podcast draft right?. I'm in if so. Noon PST is 8PM for me, if a pick is made every 3 mins I can be ready about 1.15PM PST (it is bedtime for the little one here about noon PST), so can I have the Packers maybe?. Looking forward to it.

    Yes in addition to the Podcast. I'll put you down for a vote to be Packers' GM.

    No problem. Unless we get much more response before Thursday, this won't be happening.

    If you get a team, then just PM us the day of the draft a big board of picks, and we can pick the highest ranking player available on it left. If all are off, we can either text you or go BPA

    I was unaware of the podcast draft. Since there's been little to no response for this, I'm bagging it.

    Enjoy.
