Hello! It's that time of year again! Dan Kadar, the head man at your favorite draft site, Mocking the Draft has given the authorization for Music City Miracles to host this year's 7 Round Live Draft. TST did a wonderful job as hosts last year.
Here's how it's going to shake out:
Thursday April 24th - Thursday May 1 = "negotiation/tampering" period
Saturday May 3rd - Rounds 1-3 NOON EDT
Sunday May 4th - Rounds 4-7 Noon EDT
Rules (draft wide):
1. The first round will be timed at 5 minutes, Rounds 2-4 at 3 minutes, and Rounds 5-7 at 2 minutes
2. All trades (pre draft tampering period) must be approved by me and the trade calculator. All trades during and after each round must pass the 200 point minimum as calculated by the trade person. Time limits will be strictly enforced and if the limit is passed, I will go off the big board emailed to me by the team representative prior to the draft or in the case that a board isn't sent to me, a vote will be held by other teams. 2014 and 2015 draft picks can be used. Remember that 2015 picks will be half of the value of the 2014 picks.
3. The subject line during the draft will be for pick, trade, and time announcements only.
4. As rule 2 states, there will be a week long "negotiation" period starting from April 24th to May 1st. After that, time limits matter.
