    Since we are going with different ideas, here is mine. Instead of each pick being one player, it's a position group. You can select any group that played together for one full season. So you are getting anywhere from 3-5 players with each pick. Position groups are:

    1 QB/RB/FB- (2)....You will select two picks in the draft for this group, meaning you will have 6 players from those two picks
    2 WR/ 1 TE - (2)
    5 OL - (2)
    4 DL - either 3 or 4 depending on system. if you are 4-3, you get 2 DT and 2 DE (2 picks, 8 players)
    3 LB - again, if you are a 4-3 set, you get 3 LB's. (2 picks, 6 players)
    4 DB's - 2 CB, 2 S (2 picks, 8 players)
    3 Specialists - P, K - (2 picks, 4 players)

    So here is how it works. Say I had the 1st pick in the draft and I decided to take the 1996 Cowboys QB/RB/FB with my 1st pick. I could then add Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Moose Johnston to my roster. Then later on, I took the 2005 Steelers as my other QB/RB/FB pick and added Big Ben, Willie Parker and Dan Kreider. Those six players would be my roster for those positions. Then it would be up to me as to who my starters were, who was my backup QB and who was my 3rd down back. Same thing at WR/TE. Let's say that my WR/TE'S ended up being Julio Jones, Roddy White and Tony Gonzales from the Falcons and Wes Chandler, Charlie Joiner and Kellen Winslow from the Chargers. I could show 4 WR sets, two TE sets, whatever I want, and I added 6 players with only two picks.

    ***The great thing about this draft, IMO, would be that we would be drafting 48 man rosters, but the draft would only be 14 total rounds long!

    Also, like any mock, the same player can't play for two teams, meaning once I took Troy, Emmitt and Moose, someone could go to a 70's Cowboys squad and take Roger, Tony D and Robert Newhouse, but not the 3 guys I took.

    What about the “overrated draft”

    Normal 24 player draft.
    Every 4 rounds each gm get one “swap” from the selection in front of them, starting with 1 swap in rounds 1-4. The gm can elect to swap the player selected directly before their pick by selecting another player who has more pro-bowl appearances than the player they are stealing. Stipulation is that said player must play the same position.

    For example say gm1 selects Michael Straham (7 probowls) in the 2nd round. Gm2 can select Howie Long (8 probowls) and steal Strahan. GM 1 is then given Howie Long. Players who are assigned via steal are ineligible to be traded or dropped. GM 2 loses their swap for that 4 round block which resets again during the 5th round

    Each GM gets 1 opportunity to “swap” per 4 rounds. You use it or lose it, no carry overs.

    Players with 4 or less pro bowls are ineligible to be swapped.

    I thought a few of us liked UK's idea about the groups of players things. You draft the LB corps of this team from this year and the WR corps of this team from this year and such.

    I liked my Super Bowl Draft Idea. Pick 1 player from each Super Bowl winner to a max of 3 from each team (So the Patriots who have 5 Super Bowls, you can pick from 3 of their winners). So you can have both Tom Brady from 2015 and Gronk from 2017.

    I'll go with whatever but I think this is a good idea.

    Alright if y'all wanna do that, that's fine. This will give me a chance to pay more attention to work as i'll still take care of everything as that should be pretty easy to do but sit the draft out. I only did 12 hours of OT last week, I need to do more!

    One thing when picking, the players you pick from a grouping wouldn't HAVE to have been the starters, just on the team. For example, if Ritz chose the 89 Raiders QB/RB/FB and wanted to use Bo Jackson instead of Marcus Allen as the RB, that's allowed, as Jackson was the backup RB. He could not take both guys though, as he could only take 1 QB, 1 RB AND 1 FB from the 89 Raiders squad

    This draft will only be 14 rounds, should be done quickly. After the full rosters are complete, everyone will need to pick their starting lineups from their complete squad before the playoffs begin
