NFL Mock Draft Pool Rules
- The rules are very simple. Simply drag a player from the left side to the desired pick location. Each time you drop a player in the pick position, that pick is stored. You are not required to populate every pick, but if you don't you lower your potential total score after the draft.
- You are picking each players' draft position, not necessarily the team that drafts them. If you anticipate a trade, you'll want to slot the player in the position where you think they will be taken, not next to the team you think will take them.
- You also select up to three draft positions that you think will involve a trade during the draft. Only the higher draft position of the trade will be considered for points (for example, if the team selecting 20th trades up to the 9th pick, only players with Trade selected in the 9th position will be awarded points).
- The manager sets the point values for hitting the pick straight-up, missing within 1, missing within 2, and missing within 5. You only get points for one of the afore-mentioned ranges. That is, if you hit the pick straight-up, you don't also get the points for being within 1. The manager also sets points for correct trades predicted.
- Since scoring includes points for picking a drafted player within 5 picks of where they are taken, the final standings are determined after the 37th pick is made (5th pick in the 2nd round). For example, if the NFL player selected in pick 31 is drafted at pick 33, the player gets the designated points for being within 2. If the pool is configured to include players picking the 1st 5 picks of the 2nd round, the final standings will be determined after the 42nd pick.
- The player with the most points after the NFL Draft's 37th pick (or 42nd pick if pool duration is set to 1st round + first five of 2nd round) wins the office pool!
