Ultimate Buffalo Bills Draft on Queens City Sports
Posted 06 April 2013 - 08:49 PM
In addition to this, Queen City Sports will be providing its first ever Buffalo Bills All-Time Draft.
How does the draft work? It’s simple:
You can draft any player that has ever donned a Bills jersey in the team’s 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:

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.
