1) 10 points for correct player to correct team
2) 10 points for correct player to correct draft slot (pick #17...#18...#19...etc.)
3) 5 points for correct position to correct team (for example, if you pick WR Crabtree to go to the Raiders and they pick WR Maclin instead)

Tie Breaker will be a 7 round Steeler picks only with 4 players that you think will be Steelers undrafted free agents. Scoring wil be 5 points for correct player, 10 points for correct player in correct round and 5 points for correct UDFA

...wait. when does rick gosselins final mock come out???

how bout adding a 15 (or so) point bonus round? 2-3 attempts to accurately predict a 1st round draft selection that will be traded. (must be the right pick to the right team) for instance-

vikings trade #18(?) for quinn/anderson
az trade #31 to patriots for a second (doesnt have to be specific for which 2nd)
Browns trade #5 to eagles for #1 and later round selections.

must have top two picks per trade correct or top pick and player. i.e. eagles trade # 20 for wr. a. boldin, or eagles trade #28 for boldin. NOT eagles trade #1 for boldin.

question...

do we have to necessarily pick the 4 UDFA's to qualify? because i honestly dont know enough about college football to an extent to pick UDFA's....i guess if i need to i can just throw some randoms in there

Its just the tie breaker....but you can always grab a "Value Chart" off of a draft site and look for positions that we need that are valued as UDFA....Try Walter draft or Draft Dawg.

250 was a number I just threw out there...I suppose we can make it 100. Just wanted to make sure it was kept to forum members only.

Tell her with exchange rates that it would probably have cost me $40???? Therefore you saved $16 and thus the actual cost was only $8.

Do you think she would buy that story??:noidea:
