jrry32 Posted December 14, 2020 Share Posted December 14, 2020 (edited) Unfortunately, due to work obligations, I couldn't follow through on starting this mock in 2020. Therefore, I am starting it for the 2021 season. There are a few rules I am going to set. First, because Trevor Lawrence is such an easy slam dunk, I'm going to trade out of the first pick with whichever franchise gets him IRL (likely the Jets or the Jaguars). I'll obviously get a nice return for a talent like Lawrence, but it'll make it harder on me not having a slam dunk generational QB. (IRL, I'd obviously draft him, but that's just too easy.) Second, with regard to FA, I can sign any player who is currently a FA or on a practice squad for the NFL minimum. If a team ends up offering more this off-season, I have the option to match it. When FA starts this off-season, I can sign a FA if I agree to outbid the team that signs him by 10% (because players generally don't want to play for expansion teams unless they're getting paid more). If a player resigns with his old team, I have to outbid by 25% to get him. The percentage is both APY and overall value. Third, I will have an expansion draft during the playoffs or after the season. I'll likely just do it based on what players I think would most likely be in the Draft. In terms of the NFL Draft, I'll get the #1 pick in each round, the #17 pick in every round but the first, and the Mr. Irrelevant Pick (i.e., the Texans Rule). I will pick my coaching staff during the playoffs or after the season. Right now, I am leaning towards hiring Brandon Staley, the Rams DC. I have typically hired retreads in the past for their experience to start, but I think I'll likely go a different direction this time.
