You could also jungle on a blind normal game but you should ask first, of course.
Can't agree more. Draft is really the way to go if you want to get used to playing the meta and ranked games.
I don't jungle, I have no concept of how to do it properly. A lot of people that jungle in blinds, on the times it does happen, are NEVER there when you need them. I'm only level 23 and I can't tell you how many times I've died because I thought a jungler was coming to help top but then was just going to get golems or something, while I'm 2v1 or 3v1.
Just pay attention to the map and if someone asks for help, get there.
