I have done pretty much this same thing for a few years as well. Doing them multiple times also gets you in a 'adjust on the fly' state of mind which is the main thing I like about it. There is always something that happens on draft day(or auction day) you weren't expecting to happen. This also forces you to consider plan b, c, d and so on.

i think this is a great idea, just tried it with the mock draft going on, on this forum.

works great, already give me an idea of how the drafts will go.

Any chance of some links, or tips, as to where to get some extra mocks from?

Would I be right in thinking that when you come to a player you've already picked, you have to ignore him and not count him towards the number of picks between your goes?

Well, there is. If you dont' do that it seems to me your picks would be 'higher' than they actually are because you'd be double counting the guys you yourself took.

The way i did it, is i took the place of someone else. When their pick came up, i took my choice AND theirs out of the pool (if i left that player in, obviously no one else would choose them, making the draft more false).

Usually my choice would be picked before the draft got back to me, giving no net change, if not it basically reduced the pool by one extra player then would otherwise have been, which at least didn't give an advantage.

Yeah this is pretty much it.

You are taking the spot of someone in the draft. So when that person is due to pick you make your pick and mark off the original pick in that spot as well. Once you get to the pick you already made later in the draft you just skip over it since you've already made that pick. Pretty simple really.....

Just wanted to bump this as mocks are starting to form and we have alot of fresh meat around these parts now.

I'll probably do this with the mock that is going on right now in our draft rooms.
