There have been several mock draft competitions available for users to participate in, but I wanted to provide another option. This is the Big Board Style of competition. You just have to demonstrate a knowledge of the players who are likely going to be selected in the first round and when they are going to be picked based on their skill and team needs! The rules are as such:
3 points for the correct player at a spot.
2 points for the player being one pick off.
1 point for the player being two picks off.
This means that there are going to be a total of 96 points for the first round! This will be able to give us close to 100 points and can somewhat correlate to a relative percentage out of 100.
So here's what needs to happen!
First: Submit your mock draft in the comments section numbered 1-32. Please do not include your explanations for the picks.
Second: At the conclusion of the first round, respond to your Mock Draft comment with a Score comment.
Third: Score AT LEAST one other mock draft! Reply to the original poster's score with "Score Confirmed" or with "Incongruent Score:____" At that point, another person will want to score the mock to get an accurate score.
The winner will have bragging rights and will be the crowned Champion! No entries will be accepted beyond the start of the draft at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific Time Zone. Please REC to keep this at the top of the page, and perhaps Dan Kadar can even put this on the front page!
After the Jump is the Draft Tracker, which I intend to update as the first round progresses!
