Full Round Mock Drafts section in your control panel

STEP 3: Locate the "Full Round Mock Drafts" section amongst the options of your control panel. If Full Round Mock Drafts are in season, there will be a link to "Create New Full Round Mock Draft" Click that link now.



Full Round Mock Draft options on the create draft page

STEP 4: Select "Full Round Mock Draft" from the "Draft Type" menu. This should allow you to select a team from the next dropdown menu. You may also supply a title and/or description. Both are optional. When you're done, click "Create Now" to start editing your Full Round Mock Draft.


Add Player link under Add/Edit options column

STEP 5: Once you're on the managing Full Round Mock Draft page, you may edit your title/description or begin making selections for your draft. To begin making selections simply click on "Add Player" in the right hand "Add/Edit" column of the draft picks table.


Choosing a player by position for your draft selection

STEP 6: To select a player, first select the position in which he plays. That will populate the "Choose Player" dropdown menu with all of the players available in the database to choose from. Once you've selected the right player from the list provided, click the "Add Player" button to finish that selection.

Note: Some players may be a part of multiple positions.

Also Note: If the player you want doesn't exist within the player database, contact us using our missing player form. Once they're verified, we can add them.


New Edit Player and Edit Comments links replace old Add Player link

STEP 7: After you have added a player and have been taken back to the "Managing Full Round Mock Draft" page, you will be presented with two new options in the "Add/Edit" column. "Edit Pick" allows you to change your selection and "Edit Comment" will allow you to edit just the comment area.


Edit Comment form and Edit Player option

STEP 8: If you choose to edit the pick, you will be taken back through the pick selection process from the beginning just like you did when you clicked "Add Pick." If you click "Edit Comment" it will take you to edit just the comment only with the option to edit your pick when clicking the "Edit Pick" button next to the prospects name. Click the "Save Changes" button to finalize the process.


Altering teams for selections and Updating the pick selection

STEP 9: To change a team for a specific pick, just change the team from the dropdown menu next to the pick/team graphic.

Please Note: You must click the "Update" button to finalize this process.

Also Note: If you click on an "Add Player" or "Edit Player/Comments" link before clicking the "Update" button, your changes won't be saved. We will be looking at addressing this problem in the future.


New Publish and Add Round button options

STEP 10: Once you have added a pick to every selection, two new options will presented right next to the "Update" button called "Publish" and "Add Round". They will be clickable for the first time. Clicking the "Add Round" button will create a new round for you to begin manipulating. You can repeat this process until all 7 rounds have been created.


Finalizing your draft process after clicking the Publish option
