If you're new to this site or haven't participated in our annual NFL Draft Contest, this is your chance to win some money - and all you have to do is make a 2013 NFL Mock Draft!
The rules are simple. Entry is free. If you make the most accurate 2013 NFL Mock Draft in our contest, you win $350.
First place: $350
Second place: $75
Third place: $25
How do we determine how accurate a mock draft is? Because there might be trades, we go by where EACH PLAYER IS SELECTED. TEAMS ARE NOT ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE SCORING OF THIS CONTEST.
Five points for getting a pick right
Four points for being off by one pick (i.e. saying Lane Johnson goes 6th but he really goes 7th)
Three points for being off by two picks
Two points for being off by three picks
One point for being off by four picks
Zero points for being off by five or more picks
This is for the FIRST ROUND ONLY.
Whoever finishes with the most points wins.
The following questions must be answered:
1. On which pick will the first trade occur?*
2. How long will the first round last?
* - This refers to DRAFT-DAY trades. So, any trades made prior to the start of the draft at 8 p.m. do not count.
4. Prize Options
Checks, money orders or Paypal. I AM NOT SENDING CASH in an envelope.
5. Number of Entries
You are limited to only ONE entry. If we find that there are two entries from the same IP address, you will be disqualified. Please notify us if there are any IP address issues ahead of time.
All employees of Walter Football Inc. may enter the contest, but will not be eligible for prize money. In the event an employee wins, the next qualifiers would move up a spot (i.e. if a WF employee finishes 2nd, 3rd place will move up to 2nd, and 4th place would then move up to 3rd place).
Entrants must provide a valid e-mail address in order to be eligible or receive any prize.
6. Changes to Your Entry
You can change your entry as many times as you want. You may include write-ups if you wish. Your 2013 NFL Mock Draft entry may be posted in the 2013 NFL Mock Draft Database.
You may make changes until 15 minutes before the 2013 NFL Draft begins. Once it's 7:45 p.m. EDT on Thursday, April 25, 2013, entries will be locked.
7. Where Can I Enter?
Like last year, we will be running the contest on our sister site, DraftDebacled.com. We've improved our hosting, so there won't be any problems like last April. However, this will be the final year of DraftDebacled.com. All contests will be on this Web site after the 2013 NFL Draft.
I agree on a lot of what you have here, but I think you miss the mark slightly on the Romo trade value. If they are going to get to sign him for free then why would they pay for him. I also think that Jerruh's loyalty will prevent him from sending Romo somewhere he wont/doesn't want to go and even if he doesn't Romo could basically veto any trade by retiring. Romo if he leaves is going ring chasing. It's not like he's broke so it will be more about the title than a paycheck. It may also make the teams that are interested not want the Romo contract since he may be willing to take much less to help win. I think if Romo is traded it will have to be for conditional pick(s) so that a team gets insurance on his injury history.
