The NFL Mock Draft Game
By Rick Morris
The NFL Draft serves as the spring oasis for hungry football fans that desire a taste of big-time football between February and August. As such, mock drafts have sprung up like kudzu all over the Internet and viewing parties have become all the rage.
We at Drafthelp.com have devised a contest to help you and your friends measure your acumen on Draft Day. It’s the Drafthelp.com Mock Draft Game.
Each participant submits a mock draft before the proceedings … and then all parties compete in a separate “live draft competition.” Each board is scored separately, but the scores of the two are compiled to crown the Grand Champion of Draft Day. Here’s the scoring system:
may “roll over” their picks from the completed mock draft to
the live draft if a player remains on the board … or they may
cover themselves with another pick. Example: a player has
Washington taking Kellen Winslow with the #5 pick on the mock
draft they turned in at the outset. That would count for two
points if the pick is correct. If Winslow is still on the board
when Washington is on the clock, the player is not obligated to
pick Winslow during the live draft. He may “roll over” the
pick, choosing to try to win two points in both the live and
completed mock draft categories. Or he may try to cover himself
with another pick. For example, should he correctly pick Sean
Taylor in the live draft part of the competition, he would gain
the two points in the live draft but win no points in the
completed mock draft part of the competition, in which he
incorrectly picked Winslow. So strategy is at a premium during
