COMPETITION FAQ:

Of the listed players below, predict what number they'll be chosen in the draft.

To determine the winner of the comp, see the following example:


1585519526352.png



Whoever has the LOWEST difference total will be the winner.

If there is a tie, a tie-break process will determine the placings. It will be based on most exact tips, and closest tips, etc.


The NFL Draft begins April 29th (Aust Time) and ends May 1st (Aust Time). So, entry and selections must be submitted by 23:59 AEST the night before the draft.

Post your selections only ONCE in this thread, and edit it as many times as you want. On the date and time of deadline mentioned above, Mod will lock the thread so I can collate official entries.

WINNER'S PRIZE:

Bragging rights.

DRAFT NOTES:

All undrafted players count as one pick after Mr Irrelevant. Example, if Mr Irrelevant is pick #253, then all undrafted players will count as pick 254 in terms of this competition. Just write it as "UD" and I'll calculate later.

Be sure to check back when the full official draft order thru the entire 7 rounds is published, including all compensatory picks, in order to assess what draft number to give the prospects below.

Can I suggest that next year we weight it to lower players?

Late players end up moving the dial too much and success becomes too random

Yes. Was already thinking to shake up the process by....

1. Having less players total like the old days
2. Not 3 or 2 per position, but just a random assortment of players regardless of position.
3. More 50:50, 1st/2nd rounders : late rounders
4. But...still the purpose is to isolate certain players who could go higher or lower due to whatever reason. Eg, would never select a Trevor Lawrence. And this years Kenny Pickett is a good example of what fits that "could go higher or lower".

I think this years draft class is just so wild and varied that it makes it really hard anyway.

I led most of the way until the late picks came thru. Dropped all the way to second last.

Blackys score of 466, indeed all the final scores under 700, are the lowest differential ever in the era of 10+ players to predict. The early comps with like 9 players got scores of 100, but ever since expanding beyond 10 players, the usual winning score was around 600-700 or 800.

Half of you got 400-500 ish even the bottom five with 700-800 would of been winning scores in past comps.

So much for this year being difficult to predict
