I sat at my desk this evening with a list of 250 carefully ordered names by my side, and I was prepared to work on yet another mock draft when all of a sudden a thought occurred to me: "Wouldn't it be cool if we could find a way of collaborating all the thoughts of the fans on this website into one mock draft?"
Well, with the plethora of free survey software available online, a community that loves to put their ideas out there, and a writer who is willing to collate the data, it's a feat that can certainly be achieved.
My goal is to put ourselves in a position where we can each select a player from a list of 5-8 for each pick that the Cardinals have within the 2012 NFL Draft. I will close it after a few days, take the winner of each poll, and put forward the Bleacher Report Community's Mock Draft for the Arizona Cardinals.
Although before we can vote on the picks, we must first decide on who the nominees for each pick will be. I didn't want to be the one to determine this because I wanted this to be a total community effort, so here's the opportunity for each of you to nominate players to be in the running for our mock draft.
If you visit the link below, it will take you to a survey in which each of you can submit potential selections for every pick that the Cardinals have, and the most nominated players will make it through to the voting round.
You can list as many players as you want, so if you think there are multiple options in the third round that would be viable picks, then feel free to list each and every one of them.
The survey can be found here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/C9V9CFD
EDIT: The nomination survey has now been completed and is hence closed, to vote in the new polls simply click here.
After 4-5 days I will close this round of the survey, and be ready to present to you a poll for each of the Cardinals' picks so together we can create a Community Mock Draft.
