With draft season upon us, Queen City Sports is doing all it can to keep you informed. Were unrolling prospect reports all the way up to April 25th, providing Bills mock drafts and updating our first round mock.

In addition to this, Queen City Sports will be providing its first ever Buffalo Bills All-Time Draft.

How does the draft work? Its simple:

You can draft any player that has ever donned a Bills jersey in the teams history.
There will be eight owners selecting teams.
The draft will be 22 rounds.
Teams can run a 4-3 or 3-4 defense.
Team owners will draft the following: 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 2 OT, 2 OG, 1 C, 3-4 DL, 3-4 LB, 2, CB, 2 S.
The draft order will be selected at random and will be in snake order (if you get pick eight in Round 1, you get pick one in Round 2).
Team owners will get 24 hours to make their pick.
The picks will be made exclusively on Twitter using the hashtag #QCSBillsDraft .
The draft will begin Saturday, April 6th at 1 PM EST.
Now, onto the owners. We have eight excellent and qualified Bills drafters. In alphabetical order:

Kevin Connors (@kevconnorsespn), ESPN
Tim Graham (@bytimgraham), Buffalo News
Joe (@joebuffalowins), BuffaloWins
Del Reid (@mrdeadlier), BillsMafia
Damond Talbot (@drocksthaparty), NFL Draft Zone
Ryan Talbot (@RyanTalbotQCS), QueenCitySports
Chris Trapasso (@christrapasso), Bleacher Report
Mike Watkins (@merk256), BuffaloBillsDraft
Once picks have been made on Twitter, the pick will be uploaded onto each team owners roster here at QCS. Bills fans can keep track of each team by visiting the site daily.

Bills fans, be heard! Tell us your thoughts on the draft as its on going by tweeting using the hashtag #QCSBillsDraft

So this is by invitation only?? I mean - you already have the 8 owners, right?? So what is it exactly you would like me to do?? I'll cheer for you but other than that, I assume you'll pick who you want.

8 teams will draft former/current Bills players in a 22 round draft that that could potentially take 176 days if each team takes their 24 hour time limit ...... then what?  I don't get why you would do this.

Is this one of those "I'm having a birthday party but can only invite 8 people...should be a great time...maybe you can come next year" type of announcements??  *flashback to the 1980's...balling*

You may want to think again. some of us actually have lives. And what happens after you have this draft ? Do you debate which team is better ?   Yes ... on pins and needles.... keep me informed :doh:

It does sound like fun...I guess we can be spectators of your draft. Maybe that's what this boils down to.

Has the draft order been determined yet?

Damond, what you should do to drum up interest and get some audience participation is to set this up so that we can vote on which team we think is the best.

That would also enable the team owners to draft with that objective in mind. It would probably tilt things in the favor of more recent players for instance, even though Sherman White was just as good a player as Phil Hansen, more Bills fans know who Phil Hansen is.

It would be interesting because most Bills fans know who Mike Stratton is but would Stratton get more votes for the team than Cornelius Bennett?

Just a suggestion for you guys. I think it would help quite a bit.

Make it fun and give some direction and objectives. Ultimately when you're drafting a team it's a prelude to a competition.

The audience vote for best team would be the competition.

That's a good idea San Jose - show us your finished products and we'll give you feedback on which team is strongest. Just make sure you draft Joe Ferguson and Frank Lewis or I'm off your bandwagon.

I don't think the Bills have had 8 QB's good enough to make any of these teams even enough to be interesting.

This is kind of funny.  After Tim Graham...well, Chris Trapasso is on that list.  That says it all.
