    friendly contest on our draft selections?

    anyone interested in a little contest where we predict who we select in the draft?
    we could list 3-5 guys for the first couple rounders. maybe add a few more for the middle round and a few more for the late rounds?
    could also incorporate points for getting the position correct in each round.
    im game for any idea you could come up with.

    agreed. im quite computer illiterate when it comes to setting up polls, providing links etc.

    any thoughts on how you would like to do it?

    for starters, how about selecting 5 players for each round.
    a correct pick will be awarded the point(s) of the round where the player was selected. (first round worth 1 point, second round worth 2 points etc.)
    1 point for a player drafted but not in the round you predicted.
    list 7 positions(1 for each round). receive 1 point for correctly guessing what position the steelers draft in that round.

    thoughts?

    Just to clarify, you can score two ways? One by the player and one for the position picked in each round. So you would have two lists, one list of five players for each round and another guessing at the position for each round. I can dig it.
    1. C.J. Mosley LB Alabama
    2. Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3. (comp) Philip Gaines CB Rice
    4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
    5. Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5. (comp) Derrick Hopkins DT Virginia Tech
    6. Josh Mauro DE Stanford
    6. (comp) Shaquil Barrett OLB Colorado State
    7. Quincy Enunwa WR Nebraska

    Would we need 2 positions for the 6th round since we have a comp pick as well?

    And how specific do we need to be regarding position (for instance, do we need to go with ILB or OLB, FS or SS, DE or NT, OT or OG or C, HB or FB....or could we just say LB, S, DL, OL, RB)?

    im up for whatever you guys want to do.
    i like the rb, lb, db dl idea.
    i would think just one list of 5 players for round 6. seeing that we could trade up or down, we may have more or less picks in each round.
    i would think we could put the same guy in multiple rounds if we wanted too also.
