    What: 2014 Mel Kiper Jr. Invitational

    When: Monday, February 17th, 2014 @ 8am EST

    Where: Draft Zone

    Why: Because we all want to be Mel Kiper Jr. Or at least run our fingers through his hair.


    Just seeing if there's interest to do one this year. Even though the draft has been pushed back to May, I'd like to keep the Invitational in February before the combine. Makes it more challenging to project the players' value in the draft before the combine and personal workouts. The risers and fallers occur after our mock.

    I am in. You are invited. Until we reach 32. Please do not sign up unless you have the time or will be prepared with player lists to send me when you are on the clock.

    Once we have the field set we'll assign teams. Then, after the Super Bowl and the draft order is set, I'll post the main mock draft thread you may be familiar with from previous years and open it up for trading. If this is your first time in this mock please read the rules in that post at that time.

    Thank you to Reality for allowing me to do this again and the staff here that have always been helpful and accommodating. I hope a lot of them join in this year.

    And if there isn't any interest in this, hey....I'll just declare myself the winner by forfeit and move on to 2015. No skin off my nose.

    Go Cowboys!

    BTW, you can sign up in here or send me a message.

    I may even be willing to talk on the phone if you schmooze me.

    Thanks. Definitely interesting to see the comparison from our draft to the real thing.

    I think we are all draft nuts so why not do 2? 1 in Feburary and then another in late June when most of the risers/sliders movement is done. Could be fun to compare and who doesn't like to do mock drafts??? Then again I'm not going to be doing the work of running it so I'll be happy with whatever is decided.

    I don't know. Doesn't seem to be a lot of interest this year.

    We're still only up to 11. Nearly two thirds of the field left to fill. I don't know if people just haven't seen this thread yet or they're not interested anymore.

    I'll give it another week or so.

    I'd be in if we can have it after February 25th. If not, I can still probably be convinced. Thanks for putting in the effort!
