2015 POD Community Mock Draft: GM pairings, rules & schedule

A look at the general manager pairings, rules and schedule for the 2015 POD Community Mock Draft.

The 2015 POD Community Mock Draft is ready to roll. The general manager assignments have been made, and the picks schedule 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.

  • 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 (do not attach it in a separate document). The write-up should be 1-2 paragraphs and no more than 200 words, and it should explain the reasoning behind your pick. (Note: This year, write-ups will only be necessary for the first round. In the second round, you will just need to submit a pick.)

  • Before sending it, proofread your write-up to make sure it doesn't have any spelling/grammatical errors. No one's perfect, but I don't want to spend a bunch of time correcting mistakes.

  • 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 will be forced to go to an alternate since the next GM won't be able to make his selection until all of the previous picks are in. If one person misses the deadline, it slows down the whole thing.

  • On a related note, send in your pick as soon as you decide it. The write-up can wait until the deadline, but the sooner you get your pick in, the sooner I can let the next GM know who is still available.

  • Make sure to look at the schedule right now and take note of when each of your picks is due. If there is a conflict or something like that, let me know as soon as possible so we can get it worked out.

  • Due to time restraints, there will be no trades.

  • Please do not talk about picks that haven't been posted on the site until they are actually made public. 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 you do research.

  • 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. Please try to keep it realistic, though.

  • Finally, have fun with this and please be efficient with your picks. Like I said, once you make your pick, 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.

Below is the order/schedule of picks. If alternates are needed, I will put up a FanPost to find replacements.
