FANTASY DRAFT CLASS: 2012

Here's how it works. 6-10 people, snake draft.

You build a team out of this year's draft class. Your team has 11 starting offensive players and 11 starting defensive players. You are trying to get the best team in a fantasy sense (like the NFL draft we just did in this forum) and the teams will be voted on and ranked following the draft in that sense. The fun thing with this, though, is that after three years, the teams will be re-evaluated, and the rankings/voting will be re-done based on how each team's players actually fared in real life. It's fun and it will give us something to draft.

Who's in?

EDIT: here's this thread last time I tried it: http://draftcountdown.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32498

Here's how interesting the results were:

http://draftcountdown.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32586

I guess less people is better because there usually aren't more than 3 or 4 QBs worth a damn in a given draft class... hmmm. We'll figure it out.

But in that Scotty ended up with Stafford, Hakeem Nicks, Kenny Britt, a couple of good OL but not much on defense (though we didn't finish). I, on the other hand, passed on Stafford at #2 overall and ended up with PAT WHITE as my QB.

So you see, it's fun and even more fun to look back and see where you were right and wrong.

*All of the rules are subject to discussion (8 people may be too many, etc.)

Team Name/ABBREVAITION (for selection thread)/username
1) To Be Determined/TBD/gpngc
2) Nottingham Archers/NOT/SP
3) To Be Determined/TBD/tjsunstein
4) Atlantic City Pirates/AC/OSUGiants
5) I am in/IAI/Hines
6) Chicago FTs/CFT/Docta
7) WaitingforMJ/WMJ/MatthewJones
8) Queen City Knights/QCK/Pat Sims90


EDIT:

I've amended the rules a little because I realize that some of us may see value in backup RBs or backup QBs. Everyone now gets 30 selections rather than 22. Here are the rules for rosters:

QB: min 1, max 3
RB: min 1, max 3
WR: min 2, max 5
OL: min 6, no max
TE: no min, max 3

defense it doesn't matter.

This way if people see value later they won't be pigeon-holed into passing on a guy they like way more than filling a position.

Now you'll have a real depth chart.

K and P are not required but you can draft them.

EDIT: NEW RULE ADDED TO THE GAME: TRADES

You can trade any player or pick. Both parties just need to PM me that they confirm the deal.

How many people is good for this? Think that there are only 300ish draftees worth a pick and well over half of them won't work out...

6? 8?

tjsunstein
06-07-2012, 04:00 PM
Id say 6.

6 x 22 = 132
8 x 22 = 176

Can we use undrafted rookies as well?

We can start rolling tonight if we pick up two more. Should move rather quickly.

Hines

I'm in. I don't know my team name yet.

Docta

In.

Chicago Fallopian Tubes/CFT/Docta

gpngc
06-07-2012, 04:31 PM
I guess we can start from here... or should we wait for 8?

Hines
06-07-2012, 04:33 PM
I think MJ would want to be in this. I'd wait for him.

gpngc
06-07-2012, 04:40 PM
OK we'll wait for him. And if someone else signs up in the meantime, we'll go with 8.

Docta

Looking back at the '09 draft, Road Rage ended up with Orakpo, Harvin, LeSean McCoy, Unger, and Lardarius Webb.

It's cool because it reflects which prospects you liked and didn't like. For example, I loved McRath and Shawn Nelson that year.

If you need one more i will do it.

Superpacker is up. If someone wants to enforce a clock, do so in this thread. I don't want all that responsibility.

tjsunstein
06-07-2012, 07:10 PM
If a two hour clock works, I dont mind but I wont PM anyone. Be aware of the drafts youre in.

SuperPacker
06-07-2012, 07:11 PM
I've changed my team name gpngc :)

HUGE advantage to be #1 or #2 in this particular draft class.

After Luck, RG3, Tannehill, and Weeden, whats the point of picking a QB up? :)

Yo Hines, you should have just posted pics of his mom and sister for that pick

Sorry everyone, I passed out. Pick is up.

OSUGiants17
06-08-2012, 04:48 PM
Nice Fletcher Cox pick, I considered him over Gilmore. Same with DeCastro

tjsunstein
06-08-2012, 04:49 PM
Oh, you guys are so cute with your defensive studs. Fml.

tjsunstein
06-08-2012, 04:54 PM
Kendall Wright was a reach in the real draft...

Pat Sims 90
06-08-2012, 04:55 PM
Wright and RGIII together again.

SuperPacker
06-08-2012, 05:10 PM
I'm just aiming to get a team that I don't think will bust.

tjsunstein
06-09-2012, 04:30 PM
This is going to get crazy in about 20 picks

OSUGiants17
06-09-2012, 05:32 PM
Upshaw was next on my board. Gimme a minute to find someone else.

Matthew Jones
06-10-2012, 06:09 PM
Sorry for the delay, I passed out. Feel free to skip me if I time out again.

OSUGiants17
06-10-2012, 06:11 PM
You could always pm me a BB. I'll be on

tjsunstein
06-10-2012, 06:34 PM
Ill take on big boards as well, since my picks are so far apart

gpngc
06-10-2012, 09:35 PM
No need to rush this dudes. This will give us something to do for the foreseeable future...

gpngc
06-11-2012, 05:52 PM
If tj doesn't pick by 8pm tonight we'll skip his two picks and move on from there.

gpngc
06-12-2012, 06:55 PM
Matthew Jones is skipped. Pat Sims can pick now.

Matthew Jones
06-12-2012, 11:38 PM
Sorry for forgetting to make my pick! I'll post one in a few minutes.

gpngc
06-14-2012, 04:57 PM
tjs skipped. OSUGiants is up.

gpngc
06-19-2012, 08:55 PM
Docta is skipped. Matthew Jones is OTC.

gpngc
06-19-2012, 09:19 PM
I mean Pat Sims is up.

gpngc
06-20-2012, 11:09 AM
Pat Sims Mathew Jones or Hines can all pick now... where is everybody?!!?!

tjsunstein
06-20-2012, 11:10 AM
Im here, g.

Matthew Jones
06-20-2012, 12:55 PM
Gotta love waiting days for someone to make a pick and then getting skipped by five people immediately. Thanks guys.

tjsunstein
06-20-2012, 12:55 PM
Picks up soon

gpngc
06-20-2012, 01:16 PM
you guys can skip me after tj picks

gpngc
06-21-2012, 11:20 PM
Docta yoyu can pick again.

tjsunstein
06-22-2012, 10:18 AM
Are we still sticking with the minimum of 6 OL drafted per team?

gpngc
06-22-2012, 10:19 AM
yup we are... i expect this thing to last a long time. no reason to rush it.

tjsunstein
06-22-2012, 10:24 AM

Ok, I was mainly just wondering if i was a typo or not. I have no problem with it.

Matthew Jones
06-22-2012, 10:29 AM
I PM'd PS90 about 40 minutes ago, so I'm going to wait another 20-30 minutes and then make my pick.

OSUGiants17
06-22-2012, 12:19 PM
Wait we need 6 OL?!?! In a weak OL class I'm not so sure that's a good idea

SuperPacker
06-22-2012, 06:34 PM
Can i pick?

Matthew Jones
06-22-2012, 09:04 PM
Can i pick?

Whoever's on the clock has long since timed out.

Matthew Jones
06-24-2012, 12:09 PM
Hopefully we can get some picks in today.

OSUGiants17
06-25-2012, 05:57 PM
Hopefully we can get page one updated

gpngc
06-25-2012, 07:08 PM
There you bunch of dicks.

Superpacker and tj are up.

Matthew Jones
06-26-2012, 12:06 PM
Sine TJ timed out before, are we still skipping him?

OSUGiants17
06-26-2012, 12:16 PM
I say we just PM him and let him know he's got 4 picks to make up and skip him

gpngc
06-26-2012, 12:35 PM
Sine TJ timed out before, are we still skipping him?

Give him until tonight at 7pm et. No need to rush.

gpngc
06-27-2012, 10:36 AM
NEW RULE ADDED TO THE GAME: TRADES

You can trade any player or pick. Both parties just need to PM me that they confirm the deal.

For me, A.J. Jenkins is on the block. Looking for:

CB
OT
upcoming picks

OSUGiants17
06-27-2012, 11:37 AM
So in other words you're upset that AJ looks bad in camp and want a CB or OT but don't know who is left to draft so now we can make trades?

SuperPacker
06-27-2012, 11:39 AM

Hahaha, this is true.

tjsunstein
06-27-2012, 01:31 PM
Sorry, internet went down for ~36 hours.

Matthew Jones
06-27-2012, 01:41 PM
I'll have my pick up in a few minutes.

gpngc
06-27-2012, 03:41 PM
I had trades in this last time. If you don't want to trade don't. If you don't want to trade for my players don't.

I actually don't want Jenkins because there are still a bunch of WRs left that are worth drafting.

OSUGiants17
06-27-2012, 03:45 PM
It's just that you made the rule so late and so abruptly and already had your trade block set up

gpngc
06-27-2012, 03:47 PM
It's just that you made the rule so late and so abruptly and already had your trade block set up

OK then don't trade I don't care. It's not like I PMed offers or anything. It is a little late but that was also when I was worried about this not going at a decent rate (which it has). Trading up and down might slow things down, which at this point isn't a problem with this group.

It may have been earlier.

Again, I don't care. If you don't want to trade, don't trade.

tjsunstein
06-28-2012, 09:07 AM
I'm open to trades.

gpngc
07-02-2012, 02:23 PM
OSUGiants and SuperPacker are up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

gpngc
07-05-2012, 11:55 AM
Super Packer where art thou?

Docta
07-05-2012, 02:23 PM
Should I just make my next pick too since SP is AWOL?

OSUGiants17
07-05-2012, 03:53 PM
Might as well, no point in waiting. I know gp doesn't want to rush this but it's taking way too long at this point. There is no need for this to be going on still, let's just wrap it up already and get a poll going for the winner.

gpngc
07-05-2012, 03:55 PM

Ah but the preseason winner can be named any time before the season. The real fun here is after a couple of years.

Again, no need to rush. We have two months until the season. Also, I want us to get fairly deep into the UDFA pool. I want us drafting any Victor Cruz-type gems.

OSUGiants17
07-05-2012, 05:36 PM
Ok I understand it doesn't start until two months but this should not take another 2 months, it should take another 2 weeks at most. It's not that I want to rush and skip everyone and have 2 rounds done a day, I just want people to actually participate, maybe get 2 picks in a day. There's a difference between trying to get this to move at a normal pace since it's painfully slow right now and trying to rush this. Also, it's been going on long enough that it's not rushing it, there's 7 rounds left.

You can make four right now.

Matthew Jones
07-10-2012, 11:14 PM
Wow, the team thread got archived.

OSUGiants17
07-10-2012, 11:39 PM
Can a mod in-archive it? If not, I got an idea

gpngc
07-11-2012, 05:23 PM
Anybody got any ideas for SuperPacker? Have someone else take over his team or at least just make the picks he's missed? They can trade whoever they don't like maybe? Anybody have an idea of who would be interested?

SuperPacker
07-11-2012, 06:41 PM
Or I could just make my picks...

You've said yourself that you don't really care how fast this goes and whether we get this done anytime soon, so how can you expect the people taking part to think any different?

OSUGiants17
07-11-2012, 07:34 PM
gpngc, you're a weird dude. SP misses essentially 3 picks and you want to kick him out this late into the draft. Just let him make his picks and let's get this rolling again. SP go pick

gpngc
07-11-2012, 07:34 PM
OK that's fine. You've been MIA for at least two weeks and missed a bunch of picks. Go ahead and pick.

OSUGiants17
07-11-2012, 07:43 PM
You forgot to add my most recent pick to the first page

gpngc
07-12-2012, 11:21 AM
Thank you SuperPacker. Docta is on the clock.

gpngc
07-15-2012, 02:26 AM
Jaye Howard is long gone MJ. Pick again.

OSUGiants17
07-19-2012, 11:34 AM
So is this dead with 4 rounds left?

gpngc
07-19-2012, 08:33 PM
Not even close. Who's up?

And we have more than four rounds left....

OSUGiants17
07-20-2012, 12:40 AM
How many rounds then?

OSUGiants17
07-21-2012, 02:36 PM
I refuse to let this die, it's been 5 days since our last pick so I just picked

07-23-2012, 03:16 PM
tj is up...

Hines
07-23-2012, 03:24 PM
Switched my pick.

Hines
07-24-2012, 01:19 AM
I chose again and I am certain that Graham wasn't picked. Sorry..

gpngc
07-24-2012, 05:10 PM
Ewing is gone. Docta and TJ are up...

Use CTRL+F to search on the first post of the thread.

Docta
07-24-2012, 06:03 PM
I picked Bryce Brown earlier, and then Sensabaugh was my 2nd pick after SP.

OSUGiants17
07-27-2012, 01:07 PM
Ewing went like 4 posts above you

OSUGiants17
07-29-2012, 01:08 PM
So glad this could make it to the end

gpngc
08-07-2012, 04:22 PM
Pat Sims you need to change your pick. Then Hines.

Then we keep going.

tj hasn't been on here lately but he can pick his two whenever he gets here.
