Windy City Gridiron 2018 Community Mock Draft - Sign-Ups OPEN!

Fanatic Posters and Casual Lurkers of the Windy City Gridiron Community, with the NFL Draft almost upon us it's an exciting time of the off-season. While that means a great many things for the NFL community as a whole, here at Windy City Gridiron it means it's time for our Community Mock Draft! For the uninitiated, the Community Mock is a small tradition that started a few years ago where YOU can be the General Manager for an NFL team for the upcoming Draft. For last year's Community Mock, we ran the mock for the entire first round, and then started the second round up until the Bears picked. Since the Bears are near the top of the draft order again, we will do that this year as well.

The rules are simple: Pick a team to be the GM for by signing up in the comments, and when the time comes that you are on the clock, pretend you are the GM for that team and make the pick that you think makes the most sense for that team. The only rule is, that trades aren't allowed.

For a glimpse at how things went last year, below are links to the 2017 Community Mock Draft article, as well as a Recap article showing how we all did:

WCG Community Mock Draft - Recap and Analysis

This year's Mock Draft will start on FRIDAY, APRIL 20TH at 9AM CST and if last year is any indication, it will likely run through the weekend.

For right now, I'm just taking sign-ups. If you wish to claim a team, please post in the comments below, and I'll assign you to a team. First come, first served. I'd like to limit each person to one team, but if we have trouble filling things up, I'll open it up to additional teams. Once you pick your team, please take the time to properly research your team and their needs and tendencies. Let's make this as "realistic" of a mock draft as we can.

Here's the official Draft Order. Please sign up in the comments below, and thanks!
