When I read through these threads I am amazed at the supposed knowledge :D that many of you exhibit putting together your mock drafts. Some of the mocks are similar and some quite different. So I thought a little contest was in order to see who could come closest to the actual selections. We could choose as many rounds as you want.

It would work something like this. You create your mock. When the actual draft takes place we see where the players are actually taken. You get points for the difference between where you had the player taken and where he was actually selected.

For instance ... If you have Clausen taken with the 6th overall selection but he isn't taken until the 20th overall selection then you get 14 points. This is calculated for every player taken. The objective here is to get NO points. At the end of the draft the person with the least number of points wins and gets the title of

Best Mocker

We can do this for as many rounds as we want although I suggest we keep it to 1 or 2 for the people like me who know next to nothing about the college players.

What do you guys think? Anybody interested?

How 'bout a negative point (or points) "bonus" for selecting team/player/draft-position?

For example if you have the Steelers (team) taking Iupati (player) at 18 (draft position) and they actually do that, you get some negative points.

If the idea here is "who has the most knowledge" then you are rewarded for pegging teams' needs (or at least your perception of their perception of their needs).

That sounds like a great suggestion to me. In fact we could tie the bonus into the round since it would be harder to call the 33rd pick over the 1st pick. We could do a bonus of (-1 x round number). So if you nail a 1st round pick you get a bonus of -3 and if you hit a 2nd round pick you get a bonus of -6. Do you think that would work?

That would work. I think you meant to say bonus of (-3 x round number) though.

I think the difficulty of deeper rounds is not linear with round. Personally, I would go for a bonus of 2 to the power of round number myself ...

Round 1 -2
Round 2 -4
Round 3 -8
... -16 ... -32 ... and so on

But that''s just the geek in me talking. :shock:
