NFL Draft Contest, 1st Round only

Recommended Posts

Anyone interested?

Take the list of the 1st round. Put 32 players on the list and get points for correct picks.

Rules:

1. Picks are by position, not by team. So if pick 2 is traded on draft day, you still get credit if the new team picks your guy.

2. Post your pics here, feel free to edit your post to keep the thread clean. However, all edits are final 1 hour prior to Goddel taking the stand. Any edits after that point will be disqualified.

3. Points are per pick.

1-5: 4 points

6-10: 6 points

11-15: 8 points

16-20: 12 points

21-31: 16 points

32: 32 points

Pick 33 picks. You can get points for being 1 off, either up or down. Exceptions are first and second picks. You have to nail those. One off point list below:

3-5: 1 point

6-10: 2 points

11-15: 3 points

16-20: 5 points

21-31: 7 points

32: 8 points

Thats about it. No prizes, not void or prohibited anywhere. Just bragging rights.

Peace

Maybe give 1/2 points if your guy is picked within 1 slot of your projected pick?

I love contests like this and when I mull it over I'll do it. But I agree with Kruppe here. A frustrating thing is being VERY close to picking itright but being 1 or 2 picks off. Maybe do a smaller scale if you're within a pick of getting it right. Something like: 1-5: 1 point 6-10: 2 points 11-15: 3 points 16-20: 5 points 21-31: 7 points 32: 8 points

Good input Gents,

I will add some bonus for being close. I think on 1-5, there will be no bonus. Those are close to being obvious, so you should nail those. I also think that I will have people pick 33, so if they are one off on the 32nd pick, they can get a chance at one pick either direction. I will keep reading and come up with the final rules closer to the draft.

Sorry I have not been on sooner, but the strike/lockout is disappointing to me. I mean, my dad is an old school Dodger fan. He grew up watching them at Ebbets. He still has not truly forgiven "them" for depriving him of the World Series. He has come back and enjoys his Bums, but deep down, he is still disappointed. I feel the same way. I am just disgusted. I am a Lions fan for gods sake. I have been and will be until I die. And this is how you treat us?

Perhaps they need to realize that in places like Falujah, Fire Base Alpha and Middle of the Desert Nowhere, a certain Sunday each year means 2 cold beers and the Superbowl on a satellite feed.

Sorry for the rant, didn't mean to hijack my own thread.

Peace

1. Carolina-Cam Newton-QB-I prefer Gabbert, but I think they need to draft a QB.

2. Broncos-Von Miller-OLB-decided to switch him and Dareus at the last minute.

3. Bills-Marcell Dareus-DT

4. Bengals-A.J. Green-WR-Julio Jones was tempting to put here, but I stuck with Green.

5. Cardinals-Patrick Peterson-CB-2nd best player in the draft at 5 is good value.

6. Browns-Julio Jones-WR-Big need, Holmgren likes recievers.

7. Niners-Blaie Gabbert-QB-See Broncos and Bills.

8. Titans-Nick Fairly-DT-Although I have heard reports of Dalton I don't think they are quite that dumb.

9. Cowboys-Tyron Smith-OT-Same reasons as everyone else.

10. Skins-Jake Locker-QB-I think Shanny suprises us hear and goes with the QB.

11. Texans-Robert Quinn-OLB-Big need, great player.

12. Vikings-DaQuan Bowers-I think the 20-25 talks are a little overblown. With Locker off the board its the obvious choice.

13. Lions-Prince Amukamara-CB-Don't need to say anything about this one.

14. Rams-Cory Liugit-DT-Almost put Jordan here, but a tackle would make sense.

15. Dolphins-Mike Pouncey-G-A bit of a stretch, but it fills a need.

16. Jags-Ryan Kerrigan-DE-Obvious reasons.

17. Patriots-Cameron Jordan-DE-Bewtween him Watt and Smith. As a pats fan I prefer Smith, but I think it will be Jordan.

18. Chargers-J.J. Watt-DE-A big need, Watt is a steal here.

19. Giants-Anthony Costanzo-OT-A steal here, high character, safe pick.

20. Bucs-Aldon Smith-DE-A complete steal here. I don't think Smith will be here though, they would be lucky if it fell this way.

21. Cheifs-Gabe Carimi-OT-A good right tackle for the next 10 years.

22. Colts-Muhammad Wilkerson-DT-They desperatly want one of the top 3 tackles, but I just don't see Solder going here. They are in a win now mode and Solder is a project.

23. Eagles-Jimmy Smith-CB-If it wasn't for Prince falling, Smith would have been the Lion's pick.

24. Saints-Mark Ingram-RB-Bit of a surprise here. Gives them a stud 1500 yard back.

25. Seahawks-Christian Ponder-Great fit here. Look for him to be the rookie of the year.

26. Ravens-Aaron Williams-CB/S-Which ever position he plays he will fill a need.

27. Falcons-Adrian Clayborn-End is a need and Clayorn is decent value here.

28. Patriots-Danny Watkins-G-I would love this pick as a pats fan.

29. Bears-Nate Solder-OT-It's a fall here for Solder and the bears need a tackle.

30. Jets-Jabaal Sheard-OLB-Most people don't see him going in the first, put I think he definitely goes to either the pats, jets, or packers.

31. Steelers-Brandon Harris-CB-This is a worst case scenerio for Pittsburgh and I think they trade down here.

32. Packers-Brooks Reed-OLB-A big need, but a reach for the player.

Um, I'm confused as to what the final scoring was :confused:

I got 2 of the first 5 picks.

I got the 6th pick right.

I got the 11th pick right.

I was one off on picks: 4, 5, and 20.

I am not very good at this :bag:
