RULES

1. Only registered members of the FalcFans Forums will be allowed to submit mock drafts. In order to register, click the link at the top of the page.

2. Participants will only be allowed to submit one entry. On the event that a participant attempts to submit multiple entries, the first submission will be the valid one.

3. All submissions must be made by Thursday, April 26, at 4:00 PM Pacific (Thursday 7:00 PM Eastern) or one hour before the draft begins. At 7:01 ET the forum will be locked and no more submissions or edits will be allowed to be made. All changes or postings made at this deadline will be considered the final versions.

4. Participants are allowed to edit their mock drafts after initial submission leading all the way up until the contest's deadline.

5. Participants are expected to submit only original mock drafts. Plagiarism is frowned upon, and simply copying a mock draft from a published website or source is prohibited. We understand that the likelihood of very similar mock drafts being submitted, and there is a better than normal chance that even with original thought, persons could come up with the same mock draft as a major publication. Therefore, in the event that plagiarism is expected, the administrators and moderators of the FalcFans Forums will come to a determination if suspected plagiarism occurred or did not occur.

HOW TO SUBMIT

Simply create a thread or post in this forum containing your mock draft. It's that simple.

Here is the format: http://www.falcfans.com/forums/viewtopi ... =9&t=10098

3rd should get a Rank of "3rd place...pitiful" or something along those lines.

Hey Pudge,

I'm in the process of updating my draft program (http://draft-simul.sourceforge.net) to a version that runs on Ruby (actually a Ruby version has been completed; I'm just fine tuning the team needs language --> see http://draft-simul.sourceforge.net/research.html)

Mind if I submit a 3 rounder from this puppy?

David.

Do we need to notify you when we make changes? Because I just made a few to mine.

No, the forum will be locked and you can't make changes anymore when the cutoff time comes. Just edit your post.

Happ, I wasn't sure if you were going to be offering a prize again this year.

No, unfortunately we had to close the biz due to some problems with our main supplier. Sorry. I'd love to be able to.

I haven't posted here in a while, but I still read the forums pretty regularly. I'll have my mock posted soon.

Take note of the fact that because the draft is in primetime, that the submission deadline now is only 1 hour before the draft's start.

My account was barely activated. Can I still enter this? Or is there a minimum post limit? (that's been in the case on other forums for stuff like this.)
