2013 Pride Of Detroit Community Mock Draft rules/schedule

A look at the general manager assignments, rules and schedule for the 2013 Pride Of Detroit Community Mock Draft.

The 2013 Pride Of Detroit Community Mock Draft is set to officially get started next week. The general manager assignments have been made, and the schedule for the picks is set. Below you can find the assignments and schedule, and you can also find a rundown of important rules and guidelines for the mock draft. Please read through them carefully. (Let me know in the comments if you have any questions.)

  • You will receive an email notifying you when you are on the clock. Reply to the email with your pick, along with your write-up. The write-up should be at least a paragraph explaining why you made the pick. It can be as long as you want, but try to make it a paragraph at minimum. Also, please proofread the write-up to make sure it doesn't have any spelling/grammatical errors. No one's perfect, but I don't want it to be written like a text message. Even though it's not my work, I want it to look professional since it will reflect on the quality of POD. If I see a typo or something I will fix it, but please look it over before you send it to me so there aren't a bunch of mistakes to correct.
  • As for when your pick should be made, check out the schedule below to see your deadline. The pick and write-up need to be sent by the date and time in the deadline column. If you miss your deadline, I may be forced to go to an alternate since the next GM won't be able to make his team's selection until all of the previous picks are in. If one person misses their deadline, it will slow down the whole thing.

    Keeping that in mind, I would prefer it if you send in your pick as soon as you decide it. The write-up can wait until the deadline, but the earlier you get your pick in, the quicker I can let the next GM know who is still available.
  • Make sure to look at the schedule right now and make note of when your pick will be due. If there is a conflict or something like that, let me know as soon as possible so we can get it worked out.
  • When a pick is e-mailed to me, I will e-mail the next GM to let him know he is on the clock. I will include an updated list of picks in my e-mail so the GM knows who is still available. My e-mail is going to be sent to whatever address is listed on your SB Nation account. If you want it to be sent to a different one for whatever reason, let me know right now by sending an e-mail to
  • Due to time restrictions, there will be no trades.
  • Please do not talk about picks that haven't been posted on the site until they are actually posted. That way we can make sure the reveal of each pick is somewhat exciting. Comments about picks that haven't already been posted will be deleted.
  • Perhaps the most important rule of all is to DO RESEARCH. I can't stress this one enough. Don't wait until the last minute to get an idea of what your team's needs are. Check out the SB Nation blog for your team, go to draft websites or whatever; just make sure to do research. That way you can put together a list of a few players you have in mind and won't go past the deadline for when your pick is due.
  • As far as draft strategy goes, it is really up to you. You can go with the player you think should be picked or you can go with the player you think will actually be picked. Obviously I would like you to keep it realistic and not go off the wall, but at the end of the day you're the GM for your team in this draft.
  • The last two things I will mention are to have fun with this and try to be efficient with your picks. Like I said, if you already know what your pick is going to be, then I'd appreciate it if you can send it to me right away. You can wait to get me the write-up until the deadline if you want, but the earlier the better for your picks. That way we can get ahead of schedule, making life easier on all of the GMs who are waiting around to see who has been selected before they make their pick.

Below is the order/schedule of picks. If alternates are needed, I will consult the sign-up post and choose someone who wanted to be involved but didn't get selected.
