Go to the Draft Lobby and wait until a new set of drafts come up. They come up every 15 minutes. Be ready to join a draft because they all fill up in about 30 seconds it seams.

would it be too much to ask for a mock draft using settings that have CI, MI, extra OF and P slots? lots of leagues use extra positions although i suppose standard is the mostly used.

if they're going to run 8 team mocks, why not?

Yea, I agree I think this could be a lot of fun to practice drafting a lot

That just worked for me. B-)

A suggested message for this circumstance:

No drafts available, please try again in 15 minutes.


A proper informational message avoids anxiety and wasted time, e.g. this post. :-B

ESPN mock drafts are set up w/ 5 OF spots and an extra "2B/SS" and "1B/3B" slot. I suggest using those mock drafts if you use the CI, MI spots in your league. Also, it's a lot easier to get into ESPN mock drafts - you can often get in 3-5 mins before the draft.

The current message is a bug that should be fixed with our next sitewide software update. We know it is confusing :-(
