      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 »

Spotrac updated Cap information with teams who have the most highest cap to the least. They also assume this amount of cap space available under a $168M salary cap for 2017.

Watch me get the Browns

Each team has advantages and disadvantages. 

The Browns would have over $100mil in cap space but very little in way of players to trade with, other teams are 90% set but right upto the cap.

ravensdan has asked for spot 30 which gives PaRAYdise's friend 29.  Draft would appear to be complete (touching wood) fingers crossed

Best piece of advice I can give anyone here is if someone wants a player always wonder why and if you don't know much about the player check into it first. I've seen people get burned by not knowing value. I'm personally looking for little in free agency and I'd like to cruise and take a team with a few needs where I can just draft.

This.  Don't jump the gun and make a move right away just for the sake of making a move.  Take your time, do research, and consider all of your options.  I jumped right into trades my first year and there were quite a few I wish I could have taken back once I got more comfortable with the game.

I just hope I get a team I have some knowledge on.

I've actually found it fun in years past to take a team I'm not overly familiar with.  I've always used this game as a way to teach me about some other teams that I otherwise wouldn't care about.

Since we're nearing the end of signups (just waiting on the approved posts), the CoCo will select someone to do the random and that will be the order for picking our teams.  We'll let you know when that officially starts, but it should be in the next couple of days.  You will have 12 hours to select your team.  If you won't be around, please pass on a list if your top teams to another member via PM (preferably one who has already picked or is nowhere near your selection) and they can post on your behalf.

Rule of thumb. Don't discuss any teams you want or may be interested in. Reason is because since we don't know the order, if you express interest in a team someone else may take them if they see someone else have interest. 

Much like how we don't discuss player interest during the draft.

So I shouldn't fake interest in a team I have no desire to pick? There goes part of my strategy to get who I wanted :P

Sorry I used the Browns as an example of a team with plenty of cap space not that i would wish them on anyone in real life :)

Will continue playing on the Spotrac to do a bigboard on teams

By the way, this is a bit of a gentlemen's rule, but it would help for the newcomers to be made aware of it. If there's a situation where a future FA signee, a future draftee, etc. are still hanging in the balance, we don't discuss them until their fates are sealed. I.e., if we're at the FA period, and I believe that Player X is getting overpaid or underpaid, or whether I want to chime in on their worth, I would save it until after they're signed. Same goes for the draft portion as well.

Got it. That makes a lot of sense.

Worth mentioning that the former is a given in this game and the latter rarely happens.

Thanks for bringing that up @Truth  I hate it when someone brings a name up during the draft or free agency and reminding the entire board that he is still available.  Geesh, have a filter..
