2011 Draft Competition Submissions

Hi everyone, this is the post to submit your submissions for the draft competition for Broncos Blog Draft Guru (BBDG). This post is only for submissions, I will have another post up for general discussion shortly. I have also re-posted the information and rules below. Good luck everyone ~ Aussie.

The Competition Submission

The first part is as follows, for each team in the 1st round you need to pick the player that you think that team will pick. Now we are not going to worry about what position that pick is. For example 2nd Denver Broncos Peterson, we are not worried about the 2nd position but the player that is picked. So if you think the Broncos will pick Peterson put down Broncos Peterson. You need to pick the player that will go to each team in the draft. For each correct pick you will get a point. There are a maximum of 32 points that can be gained from this section.

The second part you will need to pick the 7 round draft of the Broncos. Now this can be a little hard and tricky. You can pick the draft as it is with the current picks available to the Broncos. The other option is you predict the trades you think the Broncos will make, for example trade down from 2#. If you chose the right player(s) with a pick that is from a trade this can be the difference between winning and losing. Correct picks of players picked by the Broncos is 1 point. If you correctly pick the ROUND that player is picked in that will give you an extra point. Correct pick of player but in the wrong round will only be 1 point. In this section creative is rewarded by the chance of getting more points from trades but it is a risky option than picking with the current picks. Bonus points may be awarded for correctness of trades.

The blogger with the highest combined point total from both parts will win the title of Broncos Blog Draft Guru (BBDG)!

Rules and Notes:

Look out for the 2011 Draft Competition Submission post, this is where you submit your competition picks. It is a good idea to start working on it now as you will need it! You have up to the start of the draft that is 8:00 EST of draft day to submit. Any submission after that will not be accepted. Changes and updates will be allowed leading up to the draft. You can submit as much as you want in the comments but it will be your LAST submission that I take. Therefore there is only one entry per person. Also if you update multiple times can you delete the older comments, it will just make it easier for me thanks.

Each person's results will be able to be viewed, so you can see everyone’s results. I will post them all up after I tally up the results which will be after the completion of the draft. I will post up the winner on here with an analysis of the points for each blogger that participated. Some digression will be taken when marking picks so as to be as fair as possible. As grandmaster of the competition I will get to make this decisions so try to be as clear as possible so I understand what you are doing. Again I will be as fair as possible.

In the event of a CBA being signed you can also, if you are game enough, predict a trade for a player or trade a player. For example the Broncos trade a 6th to a ‘Team’ for X player or Orton to ‘Team’ for X. If you are game to do as such and you are right I will award this person 2 points for correctness of trade (the picks), 2 points for correct player and 2 points for correct team. The other option to make this easier I will award points on the player. If you think we will get X Player put him down. I will not take into account what pick is traded for him. Example ‘Trade for X Player’. If you guess the correct player two points, but you have to be game and it could change your mock draft completely. Good Luck.
