2021 NFL Community Mock Draft: Date, team pairing, deadlines

A look at who will be participating in our 2021 POD Community Mock!

Thank you to everyone who submitted their forms to be a part of our 2021 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft. I saw a bunch of you sign up to be a part of the Pride of Detroit community just for a shot to be a part of the fun. And while most of the newbies weren’t selected this time around, I hope you continue to hang out with our community, the best in the Lions webiverse. The more you hang out, the better chance you can be a participant next year!

If you were selected, you should have already received a pair of emails on Sunday morning. In fact, the draft has already begun behind the scenes. For those of you involved, here’s how it works:

  1. When you are on the clock, you will receive an email from me, along with all of the players picked before you. In the original email I sent out, it also includes a link so that you can track where the draft is thus far.
  2. When it’s your turn, PLEASE RESPOND ASAP with your player selection, I don’t need your write-up for the pick right away.
  3. Your write-up on the picks should be no longer than 300 words long. It is due by the deadline listed below (Note: we’re already behind schedule, so please don’t take too long). You can go a little over or under on the word count, but please limit it to just a few paragraphs. The only exception is for Erik Schlitt, who will be picking for the Detroit Lions.
  4. Hopefully I don’t have to tell you this, but please do research on your team’s needs and scheme fits. We want this to be as realistic as possible. That doesn’t mean you can’t be bold with your pick, just make sure you give a good rationale.
  5. If you need to bow out of your GM responsibilities, email me immediately. We have plenty of commenters on standby if you can’t pick.
  6. Please do not reveal your selection (or anyone else’s selection) until your pick is posted on Pride Of Detroit. Each selection in the first round will get its own article.
  7. For the second round, please just submit your pick. No write-up is necessary (except for you, Kent).

***NOTE: If you see your name in the schedule below, but you did not get an email from me, let me know ASAP***

Alright, here’s a look at the schedule and team pairing for our 2021 mock draft! Let’s get this thing started!
