The 2015 NFL Draft will get underway Thursday evening in Chicago and once again I’ll be running a Pittsburgh Steelers mock draft contest. This is the same contest that I’ve run the last two years and once again the winner will receive $100.
Below are the rules and entry form, so please read them and understand them before submitting you picks.
Rule 1. You MUST have a Paypal account in order to receive the winnings. I’m not writing a check. I use Paypal, so you use Paypal. You must enter that in the form below.
Rule 2. You must fill in your name along with the username that you use to comment on this site. if you don’t have a username and have yet to comment, create one.
Rule 3. I highly advise that you post your picks in the comments section. The form below worked perfectly during testing, but anything can happen. It also makes the contest fun if other people can see your picks.
Rule 4. In the form below, list your top 5 draft choices in each round for each of the 8 draft picks (include the COMP pick) in the order from 1-5 with one being the most likely. You can only list a player once. You should end up with 40 different players listed. YOU CANNOT DUPLICATE PLAYERS.
Rule 5. The grading will be done by round and pick. Should your first pick in each round be correct, you will get 50 bonus points per round for getting the round number correct and 50 points for listing that player first. Should you have the right round, but the player is listed fifth on your list, you will receive 60 points for that pick. If the player that you list is selected in the wrong round, you will receive the points for wherever you list him. For example, If Sweed is taken in round one, you would receive only 40 points for that being as you had him listed in the wrong round. A perfect score would be 800. This isn’t rocket surgery or brain science.
Round 1: – 50 point bonus for correct round
1.1 Vince Young – 50 points
1.2 Joe Theismann – 40 points
1.3 Vince Evans – 30 points
1.4 Doug Williams – 20 points
1.5 Tim Tebow – 10 points
Round 2: – 50 point bonus for correct round

Rule 6: Tiebreaker – Please enter in the form below what overall pick number Blake Bell will be. Example: 167
Rule 7: Contest closes after the first 100 entries. I love you people, but this will take time to score and you need to give me a few days after the draft ends to do just that.
Rule 8: I have the final ruling on anything that is not laid out clear enough above.
Rule 9: One entry per person and if I find you trying to get around this, beware.
Rule 10: DEADLINE IS NOON EST ON THURSDAY
