mock draft

Postby couchmanagers » Mon Feb 05, 2007 1:50 am

Anyone want to do some mock drafts? I just made a site and I need some fantasy baseball guru's to help test it out and tell me what they think. Its all free. A draft won't start until its full. The site is at http://www.couchmanagers.com

Vote in the poll after you've done a draft.

Looks like a great site if it all works out. I signed up for the 12 team slow draft. Couple of questions though... will I recieve an email when my draft is full and ready to start, or should I just keep checkin in? Great work though man.

Congrats on being the first person ever to sign up, and thanks. As for the email... I do not have that going yet. Once I am done with the testing I'm sure I'll set up the automated emails, but for now, you'll just have to keep checking. And please look around at things like making your own rankings and test all that out and tell me what you think.

Will do. I'm off to bed for now, but I'll check out all the features tomorrow. Conceptually, it looks great, almost exactly like Yahoo draft room at first glance, which is especially helpful. I'll mess around with some stuff tomorrow when I get a chance.

Do you have the means of recording draft results and displaying average draft position and other information taken from your drafts in place? And any plans to include an auction version?

Those are the only things missing from the pay draft sites that I can see (and I don't know if there is one that does both draft and auction yet).

Great job!

If I were you, I wouldn't say 'there's going to be an eight-team, a 12-team, etc live draft', I'd put by each draft when exactly it is.

Can you do a keeper mock or just a regular mock?

I'm not really sure how a keeper mock draft would really work. How have you seen it done on other sites? If you're doing a mock with random people, you just let each team take out 2 or 3 players and put them on their roster right away? And not allow duplicates? There just seems like so many problems with that kind of mock draft that I don't think it would be smooth.

If I were you, I wouldn't say 'there's going to be an eight-team, a 12-team, etc live draft', I'd put by each draft when exactly it is.


I think that is how the mock drafts work on espn.com, right? What I thought about doing instead is allowing teams that are already in the league to attach "dummy teams" to the open spots so they can start the draft whenever they want. So if you come on the site at 3am and nobody else is around, you can do a Fast Live draft right then. Just by clicking 1 link you can fill up the draft and start.

Each draft is replaced with a new one whenever one fills.

So what would everyone prefer? Saying exactly when each draft starts, or having drafts start when they are full?

Do you have the means of recording draft results and displaying average draft position and other information taken from your drafts in place? And any plans to include an auction version?

Those are the only things missing from the pay draft sites that I can see (and I don't know if there is one that does both draft and auction yet).

Great job!


As for recording and displaying average draft positions. Yes. I will have a page set up after things get going that will do all that kind of stuff.

Auctions... I really haven't thought of doing that. Are mock baseball auctions really big? I think I'll have to add that sometime.

I signed up for that same draft. It's a good looking site. Hopefully it'll gain some steam and be another useful tool in my draft prep.
