What if NE Doesn't submit it's pick Thursday night?

Recommended Posts

What would happen if NE didn't submit it's pick on Thursday night for the 32nd pick at the end of it's allotted time?  Could Cleveland submit it's pick even though it's not technically on the clock until Friday?  It just seems like a NE-esque move to give themselves and extra day to work out a trade back.  

 

We've seen it happen mid round in the past, and you simply lose your spot in line while other teams rush up to make their pick...but between rounds, I'm not sure.

That... is a great question and totally sounds like the exact type of loophole they’d seek to exploit.

They’d get skipped for a pick so I think they’d lose the benefits of a first round pick, so the 5th year option and the like. 

 

Interesting thought though, seriously. Maybe there is a benefit that could be exploited.

if it can be exploited, the patsies would be all over it.

And would it count as a 1st round pick for the Browns, allowing for a 5-year deal?

Normally I'd roll my eyes at this sort of question...but it is the Pats.

Let's hope they do it so we can find out.

Not sure how the patriots skipping a pick would automatically give the browns pick 33... Crazy world.

Arizona has pick #33...they would be next on the clock.

If you dont get your pick turned in in time the team that picks next is allowed to go ahead. So in this case the Browns would select the 32nd player. That would be a first round pick. 

The draft has always been over more than one day. So my guess is they have rules for the last pick of the day or this scenario would have occurred before.

My guess is that by rule time just freezes 10 minutes after NE* goes on the clock, so no one can submit a pick once that time expires.  At 8:00 on Friday the draft resumes and then either of them could submit.

 

Of course it's NE so they'd make an exception and let BB submit his pick at 4am if he wanted.

I do recall a similar thing happening one year, seem to recall it involving the Vikings, can't recall if they were the team late with the pick or they jumped ahead of the team that was late.  It was in the middle of some round, not the last pick of a round. But can remember the clock expiring and the next team got right up to the table and submitted their pick.  The team that was late, then picked right afterward, so basically were one pick late. 

 

Happening at the end of round would be different.  May mean on Friday a race to the table, both teams bring in sprinters to deliver the pick.  Which team is seated closer to the front of the room??

Give the guy a break!! Can understand the error, Cleveland picking first in every round seemed to have become a given!

Its the Cardinals....and I would guess NE would then pick 2nd on Friday night...others have pointed out-- I bet they would lose the benefit of a first-round pick - the fifth year option.

team with next pick can then submit and would jump ahead of NE. Then NE is back on the clock and next team could jump ahead if NE waits to clock expiration and this continues on and on. So NE would be on clock for 1st pick in 2nd round when day 2 starts on day 2.

 

No team would be this stupid as 1st rounders come with 5th year option.

For creative exploitation of this loophole, New England is awarded a complementary massage at the Orchids of Asia Massage Parlour.

Its an interesting question.  I think this is the correct answer.

Throw in two bonus picks to recompense BB’s pain and anguish...😁

Wonderful question. Never thought of that possibility.

I'm pretty sure that they have a certain amount of time (10 minutes) and then their turn is skipped and the next team up makes their pick. After a 10 minute wait for the patsies, they would close the draft and start it with pick #33.

Based on what I have read, don't necessarily trust the source but, the "missed" pick can be made at any point during the current round of the draft. 

 

So with that logic, if we pick 9th, we could submit our pick anytime from when we are on the clock until the 32nd pick is submitted.  This happened in 2003 with the vikings picking 6th and time ran out. Jags and panthers made their picks before the vikings submitted their pick. 

 

So in this case, the pats only have the 10 min window and then they lose the pick altogether.

Ohh, I'll play.  ARI could run to the podium with their pick, thus concluding the 1st round.  NE would be on the clock for Friday.
