      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Draft a Franchise: Discussion

Throwing out an idea here:

 

I saw another one of these going on and they had both rounds 2 and 3 reversed (and then every other as usual) to offset the teams at the top of round 1 getting an elite quarterback.  I'm not sure how you guys would feel about this so what do you think?

I think you mean they reverse round 3? I'd rather do it straight snake for simplicity's sake. It seemed to work out before in terms of parity.

I've never been a fan of that rule, not everyone at the top is gonna get an elite QB. There are around 5-6 QBs I'd call elite, so this rule does a lot of damage to the teams that land Franchise Level but not quite Elite guys

I think I'm confused by what you mean. If you want to write it out I would be interested in seeing how it would work.

Round 1 (1-32)

Round 2 (32-1)

Round 3 (32-1)

Round 4 (1-32)

Round 5 (32-1)

 

and so on. 1 is the team with the first overall pick and 32 is the team with the last overall pick in first round.

 

Basically, round 3 is reversed as well and then is goes on normally from there.  I don't know how I feel about these, but I saw it so I figured I would throw the idea out here.

Already have my team name and logo made up.

 

Same here, I'm tempted to post it so nobody steals it.

No one is stealing mine since it's quite possibly the most random mascot you can think of.

I'm still mulling over my options, but you could be looking at current the owner and GM of the Itty Bitty TDs.

Because… who doesn't love a damn PB&J sandwich?  Plus, I'm overjoyed by the idea of a guy in a sandwich costume running around trying to pump up the crowd.

I appeal more to the children.  I'm a family friendly franchise.

Yeah, Tommy Wiseau used his budget on the Room rather than a Football field. 

 

So we're just gonna have to play football here
