Every year we hold a mock draft contest on the forums, where people can submit how they think the first round of the draft will go for a chance to win prizes. In recent years we have had people submit two-round mocks, but this year we will go back to a one-round format in order to try and increase participation.
The deadline for submissions is one hour before the draft on Thursday, April 28. You can make your submissions by posting in the Mock Draft Contest forum. And thusly to enter, you must be a member of the forums. Take the time to register if you haven’t already, it’s quick and easy.

Every year on the FalcFans.com Forums, we hold voting for various awards which we call the FalcFans.com Awards including who is the Falcons Most Valuable Player overall, on offense, defense, and special teams. If you wish to cast your vote, please log in or register on the forums. There is just one more week left before voting expires.
You’ll notice that there have been a glut of posts added to the site. Well I’ve migrated all the articles and posts from our micro-site: FalcFans Draft Central over here to the main site now that the draft is over.
You can still be able to visit the micro-site as it will remain up for some time in order to preserve all the links, but as the next few months tend to be the doldrums of the NFL off-season, I’ll be working on getting those updated as well.
I added the micro-site in hopes that it would stand alone as a draft resource for Falcon fans, and I think it was somewhat successful. Not sure if I’ll be doing another one next year. Thought that by having a separate site devoted to the draft would free the main site of all the draft clutter. But it wound up neglecting the main site because the Falcons really did nothing outside the first weekend when it came to free agency and non-draft related off-season moves. Maybe that changes next year, but for now it appears FalcFans Draft Central as its own separate entity was just a fun one-year experiment.
We’re launching FalcFans Draft Central today now that the season is over. For much of the past few years this site’s off-season coverage has been filled with draft coverage. And we figured this year that it was time to give the draft more focused coverage, something that we needed a separate site to do so.
The past two years we’ve published draft guides for the site as well. But instead of having huge PDF files for folks to download, this year we’re deciding to post all the information that the draft guide will contain on our new Draft Central site. We think the information will be much easier to obtain and organize that way.
Player profiles, mocks, and more will be posted on the site. Also all future updates of the Mock Muncher will be posted on that site as well.
As draft news rolls in, be sure to check back frequently for Falcons draft-related updates.
Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to all the Falcon fans. Enjoy the meal and the games if you can. And don’t fret too much about how much grief your drunken uncle gives you. Or if you happen to be that drunken uncle, don’t come down too hard on your nephews and nieces.
Yes, it’s been almost a month since you’ve last seen any updates on Moneyball. It’s not dead. But work has picked up recently and I just haven’t had the time to really sit down for the 3+ hours in front of my computer to watch the games over again on NFL.com’s Game Rewind in order to do the update. And when I have had the time, other activities that I deem more pressing have distracted me. Anyone that knows me personally, knows that time management has never been a strong suit of mine.
My workload should lighten up after Thanksgiving, but I’m hoping that I’ll get the chance to review the Bears and Cowboys game and get that posted before then. Hopefully after Thanksgiving, I’ll be able to try and get caught up before the season is over.
In the meantime, if you have a jones for some sort of review of the games, one of the posters in the FalcFans forums by the name of Emmitt has been posting his own reviews. You can read his reviews of the Bears, Cowboys, and Saints games on the forums.
Our second draft guide has been published! Including Falcons team needs, mock drafts, draft boards and rankings, over 400 prospect profiles, and even a preview of the 2010 draft! You can view or download the file by clicking the following link:
