The third annual PWE Mock Draft Competition is gonna look a lot like the second. No rules changes (I think it worked pretty well last year) but here is a basic run down.
First, if you want to play you have to complete a first round mock draft using the official order here and then link it in the comments below. Any changes or alterations to your official entry can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted in the current DE (if you’re feeling lucky).
The scoring remains unchanged – If you get a pick right, you get 3 points, if you miss by a slot, 2 points and if you miss by a couple, 1 point. Three bonus categories – the Lock, the Sleeper and the Slipper – plus multipliers for consecutive correct picks.
The Lock – Whichever pick you are most confident in you tab as your Lock. If you get it right, you get 5 bonus points. In this draft, there are no restrictions on who your Lock can be.
The Sleeper – Based off this DraftExpress mock draft (June 19th version), pick one player you have tabbed as going at least 5 spots higher. If they do get drafted 5 spots higher than in that mock draft, you get 5 bonus points, regardless of whether you got them in the right position or not.
The Slipper – The reverse of the Sleeper. Using the same template, pick a player you think will be drafted 5 spots or more lower than predicted. 5 bonus points if you’re right, whether you have them in the right slot or not.
Multipliers – Pretty simple concept – you get two picks in a row right, you get double points on that second pick. Three in a row, triple points on the third and so on. These multipliers don’t apply to bonus points.
Entries need to be submitted by midnight on Wednesday the 26th. Have at it!
