Of course. Same as we did for the NBA Rona Draft, you get 3 bullet points to plead your case and explain your strategy

Excellent. I'm already writing down priorities.

Yeah, we only need 8 teams. It'll be more fun with stacked rosters when we have to argue a over b.

Odd number is good for voting tho. It gets rid of ties like we had in the NBA draft.

Yea I donít mind rolling with 7 but 8 would be preferred just cause the less teams we have the more stacked the rosters will be

I'd consider making this a post-1980 draft. It's just too tough to imagine of most players before that playing among players today no matter how good they were.

im out on this one, but yall need to lighten up on the oldschool hate, obviously most people in sports from 50 years ago cant compete today, but i feel like that completely misses the point, contextualizing to their era is so easy imo, just saying "this is how itd happen in a 2020 nfl" is anti-fun to me

Having to pretend a 240lb offensive lineman could block Vince Wilfork just because he has a good resume is anti-fun.

Contextualizing guys in their era thing can work in basketball and baseball but is pretty much impossible in football with players before a certain point (maybe an exception for the great RBs). The game and the athletes have changed way too drastically. Otto Graham and Pat Mahomes might as be playing an entirely different sport.

We’ll keep it all time just cause there’s still some RBs, and LBs worth taking pre-1980, but you gotta know if you’re taking a QB, slow ass WR, or smol OL from then you’re probably just hurting yourself.

I plan on explaining why any pre-1980 player is worth a selection if/when I pick them.

1. Don Hutson, 1942; most dominant season in the history of the receiver position

And who could forget Bam-Bam Galloway's 1950 season at fullback on the Chicago Cardinals?

It's gonna be pretty jarring for Night Train when he has to cover WR's who aren't white.
