FFMD is a forum-wide GM mock draft designed to give the members of the site a fun way to pass the time during the dry spells of the offseason taking place April 1st and takes us to just a few days of the irl NFL draft.  There were two versions of this mock, however we will only be operating version 2. FFMD II, consists of a full 7 round mock draft with the ability to trade picks and/or players without the stress of a salary cap or the confusion of a free agency.  Current free agents, not signed by another team by Apr. 1st are relocated back to the original team.

To encourage membership at the GM level our plan is to reduce the typical workload previously required of the general manager.  We will be doing the following which in theory will provide you with more time to communicate with your group and not having to worry about keeping track or collecting information.  We hope that these changes will encourage you to join the FFMD experience.

  • The “League Office” will post the initial discussion thread aka team war room within each team sub forum.  This provides everyone regardless of their level of interest looking at it with all the information they’ll need to participate in a structured format.  We’ll ask that each moderator assigned to their team forum pin this war room thread so that it remains at the top of the thread.

    • This war room post will be titled FFMD II ‘20 - [Team Name] Front Office.

      • It will contain links to the primary discussion thread housed in the GM Mock Draft sub forum.

      • Guidelines

      • Important dates (schedule)

      • League workbook (described below) 

  • A single google doc workbook is used to keep track of everything FFMD, which will house the following information.  

    • Draft board / Draft Order

      • Used to list and track available and selected draftees.

        • This has been used in both tcmd, bdl and other GM mocks for several years with great success.

    • Team Roster sheets for all 32 teams designed to display and track every transaction.  Both tcmd and bdl have used something very similar in the past and this will be a much more simplified version of those workbooks.

      • Roster data is collected by us.

      • Important information is displayed and updated automatically.

  • In the past, only the GM and a coGM were the only ones permitted to seek trades from other members.  Now any member of your group is allowed to seek out trade inquiries that can be delivered to your war room for debate and vote on.  

As the GM your responsibilities are a bit more involved than other members within your front office therefore your final vote in which players are selected during the draft and finalizing trades does carry a little more weight, after all you are the General Manager.  So for example, if you have a couple different options for an upcoming pick and the war room is split on which player to take as the GM it’s your responsibility to make the final decision. 

General Managers or an elected member within your front office are required to post each transaction you make within the League Office thread.  We will update the workbook based on the data posted.

General Manager Best Practices

  • Be a leader not a dictator.

  • Listen to the feedback & suggestions from all participating members of your front office.

  • Keep your war room thread informed

    • Create discussions early on items such as “team needs” so that everyone within your group is on the same page.

    • Stay on top of the action by starting the discussion early enough that your front office has the necessary time to discuss various options.

    • Give your front office more control to scout for potential trades.

Long story short, a group of us have worked hard to bring FFMD back. We'd love to see your forum get involved and give it a fair shot. Hit me up if you have questions

What's up Peoples, this is your co-GM here (along with @ThatDiesel) and I would like to invite all 4 of you (lol) to join the staff of FFMD.  I don't think with the limited number of us here that it's necessarily needed to have set roles and all of that, especially since it's really just the draft.  So I think what I'll do is set up a chat that we can call our war room, and then talk about some of the other stuff on here. 

So If you're interested Please let me know and I'll see what I can set up in a chat or whatever needs to take place.

Hey everyone.

I think the majority of our members are in favor of the deal that I briefly discussed with Duffman: #6, #37 and #112 for #3. (Actually, despite it being exactly even TVC value, a few feel that there should be some sort "premium" offered from your side, one person suggesting that #112 be upgraded to #71. I think we have enough "yes" votes to keep it parked at #112.)

Let me know what you guys think. Feel free to stop by the Lions' Front Office if you have any questions.

Thanks!

It looks like they're getting an offer from the Dolphins for their 2 first round picks (5 and 26), and it looks like they want to take Tua if they're not trading it so to get Tua, we'd have to move up to 3.  The trade mentioned here seems pretty fair, but I told him I'd prefer to use a future pick instead of the 4th rounder. What are your guys thoughts on this.  I think it's worth it, but I'll leave it up to you guys (all 2 of you) too lol.

If it were me, I'd probably be against the notion of trading away our first 3 picks, if nothing else just because it sucks the fun out of everything.

Yeah I'm not down with losing so many picks off the jump. I could see 6, 37, and 112 for 3, but not our first 3 picks. Possible we have a player they would be interested in? Or can we only do trades for picks? 

I wouldn't be opposed to trading back some either if the opportunity presented itself.

I'll try to be around some but work has been killin me lately. I'm lucky that my company is actually booming at the moment since we make lab equipment that the CDC requires for Covid testing. I haven't even had much time to do much scouting or whatnot either.

They're interested in Lamp, but that would be in addition to 6, 37, 112, they offered either 6, 37, 112 and then a future 3rd is the deal that they want.  I'm a big fan of doing what it takes to get Tua, so I'd be in favor of the trade. It's tough when its' so few of us to talk through things. I'll see what some of the others say......if there are any others.

So it seems like the Dolphins are for the 1st, 2nd, 4th and future 3rd.  There's only 3 of us here, but I'm for the trade, talking with @ThatDiesel (i pointed him to come over to this thread too).  With me being for, that's what we'll probably go with if Tua is there.

Y'all ought to at least inquire with the Lions about the cost to get Stafford.  Think TL said in the discussion thread that they were looking for mid-late 1st value, but if you could pull it off for a package involve the 2nd and change they would presumably take Tua at #3 and you guys would still have #6 to work with.

With what cap space? We have like 20m total, not including draft picks, so we literally couldn't even afford him.
