    Ok draft gurus I have a challenge for you.

    This is what you need to do to participate:

    1) Post a 1st round only mock draft in this thread. You will get points as follows. For ever player you pick correctly in the draft you'll get five points. If you're one position off (higher or lower), you'll get 4 points. Two postions off, 3 points, three off, 2 points, 4 off, 1 point, & five or more positions off where they are actually drafted, zero points.

    2) Specify 3 of your picks as "sure things". If any of your "sure things" picks go in the exact spot you predict, you will get 10 points instead of 5 for that pick.

    Hopefully this won't end in a tie, but I will determine a tie breaker contest if that is the case.

    A prize will be awarded to the winner.

    Prize will be a lower view ticket (Chargers side) to either preseason game.

    Sun 8/12 vs. the Seahawks, or Thurs 8/30 vs. the 49ers.

    There is an alternate prize if you can't attend the game or already have tickets.

    I may post an entry, but if I get the most points, I'm ineligible to win, so the prize will go the the next best person. All other BoltTalk members, moderators, & staff are eligible for this contest. So basically it's open to everyone but me.

    Good Luck everyone! :tup:

    Yes, that is what I meant. I edited my post to reflect that. Are you going to enter the contest?

    I'd like to join, but I think we should make our mock drafts "private"

    Sure. Why not? As Mr. Blutarski once famously declared: "...it don't cost nuthin'" (although, he was referring to a beer)

    You have to have your draft in before the actual NFL draft starts.

    If you would like to keep your draft private, post the draft, then delete it with the reason "to make private". I will undelete all of these posts when NFL draft begins.

    If i picked someone twice let me know, its late here, im tired and have to go to school 2morrow



    * mean i think that needs an explaination

    10.Based on last years draft the texans are looking to build a defense before creating building more on there offense and they need a safety.

    19. Pacman is gone for the year they need someone to step in and/or push the backup to do better.

    I'm afraid I opt for the third round offensive lineman instead of the running back. Like the inside linebacker and Rice.

    Wow, great job Chippie, you are really dialed in.

    I will have to give this some thought, because I don't want to get less points than a girl.

    I'll join this. Quick question we can edit the mock even after it's posted up until the draft right?

    Yes, you can make as many changes as you like until the start of that actual draft.
