We have set up the first draft of the Blazersedge Final Draft Board. I have compiled the suggested players below roughly in the order they seemed to be ranked. Two things remain before we can run an official mock draft:
1. We need to review this list:
--Did we leave anybody out?
--Did we put anybody on there who has since withdrawn?
--Are people sorted MOSTLY correctly in terms of position?
2. Once the list is reviewed we need to assemble our mock draft GM's. Here's how it will work:
--Indicate in the comment section below if you'd like to participate.
--There isn't a huge commitment to being a Mock Draft GM, just checking the site on the appropriate day and registering your pick. But...
--If you do want to participate you should have a decent knowledge of most of these players and the needs of various NBA teams. We don't need to have a perfect draft but I would like something that a Chad Ford or Kevin Pritchard could look at without saying, "That's completely ridiculous!"
--We will divide up the teams by the number of Mock Draft GM's we get signed up. You may get one team, two, or many.
--We'll give the GM's a couple days to bone up and we'll run the draft.
--We will only draft for the first round.
--The BLAZERS' picks will be by popular vote. We will all be Portland's GM.
--I say "picks" for the Blazers because I'm going to throw in a draft day trade giving the team at least one more first rounder.
That's about it. Review this list and see if it needs correction then sign up to be a Blazersedge Mock Draft GM if you wish!
Because the lines between positions are somewhat blurred in the new NBA I have listed players by four categories.
