Gauging Interest in a Quick Forum Mock...
 
Sorry if this shouldn't go here, but technically this isn't actually a forum mock, since I'd be the only one making it. Basically, I want everyone to pick a team, do a little research on their GM/coaching staff, and try to predict what their draft board will look like. Read: not your own draft board. The actual draft board. Send it to me in a PM (IF we actually do this thing).

Try to find prospects that your GM has been linked to. In fact, if you send a draft board, indicate whether the prospect has visited/spent any amount of time meeting with the GM/coaching staff to the best of your knowledge. Try to keep your GM's drafting trends in mind. Do whatever you can to keep your personal opinion out of the equation, but don't be afraid to go out a limb based on what you know about your team. I want some surprise picks.

Also, give some sort of indication of where there's a drop off in talent/value on your draft board. Do it however you want: give each guy a value grade out of 100, separate prospects into several tiers, whatever. Just make it clear where each guy is valued; this will help me mock some trades. Make sure to include any other relevant information that will help me make this thing more accurate: is there a certain position they will definitely target? How likely is a trade up/down? Etc etc. Try to include all prospects except Luck and RG3 and make your board fairly deep so I can try to stretch this thing to two rounds.

So hopefully this thing is popular because it could lead to a pretty accurate mock if everyone takes a little time and does their homework. Request your team here; priority given to fans of their team/experienced posters. If enough people are interested I can assign teams and then you can PM me your boards.

Oh and I'm the Bears.

I'll take a team. I've done this for a few teams before I'll do this for Miami or Jags.

I'm interested to see. I have too many exams up in the air right now to contribute though. ;)

Y'all suck.

Could always assign each of us more than one team.

I'd be willing to put one together for the Packers. I'm planning on putting my own sort of board together, but I could rearrange it more objectively for my actual expectations.

This article on the way Pittsburgh sets up their board could be useful, so that people have a better sense of what a team's big board may look like.
