Who wants to have a 2011 NFL Mock Draft Contest?

We could predict the first round of the draft, as well as ask some supplementary questions in case of a tie breaker.

Would a prize be rightfully in order?

Any additional comments or suggestions?

We're a week out. If we wanna do this, we gotta do it now! I'm not going to put up a poll. Dedicated people are expected to participate.

Any interest for this?

Yes, I can be capable of running it. If anybody has any questions they'd like or rule suggestions, please feel free to PM me. I'll let people sign up until Sunday night, and then post the questions Monday morning. Deadline will be set a day before the draft.

Aren't we just doing a first round mock and whoever's closest wins?

Or do you mean off the wall things, like credit for predicting trades and such?

I would suggest this: Full first-round mock. No trade projections.

Then, we'd have a tie-breaker: A few questions that would be used in case two or more posters had the same number of picks in the first round right.

Sample Question: How many defensive linemen will be selected in the first round?

Something along that order.

I just want input.

I like the scoring rules at Walter......Don't care what the tiebreaker questions are.

2. Scoring

How do we determine how accurate a mock draft is? Because there might be trades, we go by where EACH PLAYER IS SELECTED. TEAMS ARE NOT ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE SCORING OF THIS CONTEST.

You earn:

Five points for getting a pick right
Four points for being off by one pick (i.e. saying Patrick Peterson goes 7th but he really goes 6th)
Three points for being off by two picks
Two points for being off by three picks
One point for being off by four picks
Zero points for being off by five or more picks

This is for the FIRST ROUND ONLY.

Whoever finishes with the most points wins.


3. Tie-breakers

The following questions must be answered:

1. On which pick will the first trade occur?
2. How long will the first round last?

that seems a little complicated why not just I don't think you should get points for being a off a pick let alone 2, 3 or even 4.

How about something simple like.

5 or 10 points for the right pick
1 point for the right position even tho its the wrong player

or old fashioned whoever gets the most picks right wins.

That's complicated to you? I could show my 7 year old that and a list of our mocks plus the actual draft....She'd have it graded in no time.

It takes some luck out of it. Correct slot only, someone could get hit on 3-4 picks and mock 3rd rounders to everyone else.

Maybe up to four slots off is a bit much though.

Maybe:

5 points: Correct selection
3 points: off by one
1 point : off by two

rules/guidelines.

1. One mock draft per member
2. The final mock needs to be posted by Thursday, April 22 at 6:00 PM ET
3. You don't need to explain the pick when you make your mock
4. You can post your mock, and then edit it, all the way up to the deadline
5. Also post another position (this is called the "2nd option position") you think they could go with next to the pick, you may put a LB for their pick but if you think they go RB, put that and you could get points.

Point system
If you get the player right - 15 points
If you get the position right - 5 points
If you get the 2nd option position right - 3 points

Here are some examples of how it could works...

Round 1 - DE Ryan Kerrigan Purdue (CB)
Say the actual pick is Kerrigan. You would get 15 points.

Round 2 - S Tyler Sash Iowa (WR)
Say the actual pick is Quinton Carter. You get 5 points for guessing the position correctly, but that is it.

Round 3- QB Andy Dalton (CB)

Lets say the pick is CB Curtis Brown. You get 3 points for guessing the correct alternative position, the position in parenthesis ()

What happens if another team trades for that pick and takes Kerrigan? The slot is correct, but the team is different.

^ Notable odd selections due to how I felt teams had need fits and view players:

-Wilkerson over Liuget to Seattle
-Philly's need for a talented OLB and Andy Reid's boner for them
-Torrey Smith to Atlanta due to how strongly Dimitroff views character and work ethic
-Fully expect NE to trade out of 28 and have Locker/Ponder selected in that slot

Crap, forgot to put the 2nd NE pick in! Brandon Harris if they stay put!

The scoring should just be as easy as possible.

You get the player and the team right, you get three points.

You get the player at the right spot, wrong team, you get one point.

The rest of this seems to work fine:

1. One mock draft per member
2. The final mock needs to be posted by Thursday, April 22 at 6:00 PM ET
3. You don't need to explain the pick when you make your mock
4. You can post your mock, and then edit it, all the way up to the deadline

__________

Are these fair rules and simple enough scoring? I don't want to be grading mocks forever, especially when I'm working a crap ton of hours over the next few weeks.

I'll even come up with 5 tie-breaker questions.

DOES THIS ALL SOUND FINE?

If so, I can make the official thread tomorrow morning when I'm off work. I'll let any other potential sign-ups come through the morning.

I'd just like to get as many people in here as possible to make it more interesting.

Maybe I could do it at work, but I have no idea what I'm doing there today.

One question - trades allowed or no? I thought you mentioned no trades before...
