Default 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:

ROUND 1

1 Detroit Lions
2 St. Louis Rams
3 Kansas City Chiefs
4 Seattle Seahawks
5 Cleveland Browns
6 Cincinnati Bengals
7 Oakland Raiders
8 Jacksonville Jaguars
9 Green Bay Packers
10 San Francisco 49ers
11 Buffalo Bills
12 Denver Broncos
13 Washington Redskins
14 New Orleans Saints
15 Houston Texans
16 San Diego Chargers
17 New York Jets
18 Denver Broncos (from Chicago)
19 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
20 Detroit Lions (from Dallas)
21 Philadelphia Eagles
22 Minnesota Vikings
23 New England Patriots
24 Atlanta Falcons
25 Miami Dolphins
26 Baltimore Ravens
27 Indianapolis Colts
28 Philadelphia Eagles (from Carolina)
29 New York Giants
30 Tennessee Titans
31 Arizona Cardinals
32 Pittsburgh Steelers

Steelers Picks:

Rd 1, Pick 32
Rd 2, Pick 64
Rd 3, Pick 96
Rd 4, Pick 132
Rd 5, Pick 168
Rd 5, Pick 169
Rd 6, Pick 205
Rd 7, Pick 226
Rd 7, Pick 241

UDFA
1)
2)
3)
4)

Winner will recieve AT LEAST either a Steelers ball cap or a Steelers Hardhat, with the possiblity of more prizes. (possibly a Draft King tag under your name for a year)


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.
