Interest in a draft contest?
 
Next Sunday (the 19th) We will be having a draft contest for forum members

The contest will be 1st round draft prediction with points awarded for:

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

So the format will look like this:

The only requirement to play is that you have at least 250 posts as a member of the forum and have your picks in by 12:00 on the day of the draft. (you can post after the 19th and change your picks up until that time) Any posts with changes after 12:00 will be eliminated from the competition.

THIS IS NOT THE DRAFT CONTEST THREAD

Dont post your picks here...

Just wanted to know if there is enough interest. So please let me know if you think its a good idea and if you will be participating.

Why the post minimum LLT?

Either way, I'm in. Not as knowledgeable as most of you guys, but should be fun nonetheless.

...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.
