    NFL Draft Contest - Winner Take All, 200-Point Buy-In (Pros Only)

    This is a winner-take-all contest with a 200-Betpoint buy-in, which must be sent in Post #1 no later than 8:00 ET tonight. In the event of a tie, the pool will be split evenly among all tied contestants. This contest is for SBR PROS ONLY.

    Just list your top 10 picks in tonight's NFL Draft. Teams do not matter, grading will be based on player's draft position only, so if a trade messes up your prediction, well....oh well.

    You get 4 points for each prediction in exact draft spot
    You get 2 points for each prediction that is one spot off in either direction
    You get 1 point for each prediction that is two spots off in either direction.

    Most points wins. This means we need to take note of the 11th and 12th picks of the draft for scoring purposes, but you just submit the Top 10.

    Good Luck!

    problem with this is the top 5 is basically well known, going top 10 is going to wield to many close results, do the entire 1st round, i think it's pointless to enter when , no1 will really enter, probably going to get a smiler results. Just try again next year, but do it earlier and do the entire first round.

    I disagree with this as far as where the guys go, 3-4-5 are interchangeable depending on who you listen to. And there is enough variety in the next five IMO for unique entries.

    the first five picks are definitely not known

    it's considered close to a lock for Winston-Mariota but 3-4-5 we know the probable players but not where they'll go

    a lot of guesswork. The big mock drafts today have three different guys going third.

    After 10 picks, yisman leads me 25-23. Best I could do is tie if Peat goes #11 and Parker does not go #12. If Peat does not go #11, yisman clinches.

    lol everyone knew who was going 1-2, Fowler, and Cooper made the chalk plays go 1-2-3-4, Scherff reaching was the only surprise of the top 5, so yes everyone did know the top 5 basically, White at 7 was easy, Williams was going to go top 6, Giants and Rams were the only 2 teams to go out and pick ppl that no1 was expecting in the top 10.....

    you're not even close

    1-2 were the only picks known

    the final mocks of the "experts" had 3 different guys going third

    Fowler, Williams, and Cooper everyone expected to go 3rd, 4th, or 5th in some order, but that's not even how it happened.

    so out of the entire top 10, TWO picks were known

    No one had Schreff top 5.

    If it were known, you could've posted your picks and won this (even without posting up points, to show you knew something). You didn't, and you would've lost.

    This was great contest. I am so angry that I didn't see this thread last night (I would end dead last btw ).

    LT, is there a possibility to run something similar tonight? Maybe for the first half of seocond round or something like that? Let us know.
