    Rams draft GURU contest

    So you think you know the Rams and the DRAFT? Here is your chance to prove it in the DRAFT GURU contest.

    Here is how the game is played.

    You get points for each player selected in each round that is correct. You can also earn points if you predict a draft day trade down or up. However if you get it wrong you lose points.

    Predict trade up or down correctly earn 15 points. Get it wrong lose 10 points. If you predict that the Rams trade down and get an extra pick in this years draft then you must identify the player selected in the round as EXTRA TRADE PICK SELECTION.

    For example lets use the recent trade with the Redskins

    Round 1 selection

    Rams trade down and earn extra 2nd round pick

    Justin Blackmon WR

    Round 2

    A. Jefferies WR

    Extra Trade pick selection
    Dwaynbe Allen TE


    I am going to avoid trades it can get complicated but felt it should be added for those who feel that the Rams will make some moves during draft day.

    Remember if you make the prediction and do not get it right you lose points.
    Here is how you earn points

    Round 1

    correct answer 10 points

    Round 2 (the rams have two selections so you should select two players do not have to get the order just the right name and position)

    correct answer 12 points

    Round 3

    correct answer 14 points

    Round 4

    correct answer 16 points

    Round 5

    correct answer 18 points

    Round 6

    correct answer 20 points

    Round 7

    correct answer 22 points

    Before I start the contest I want feedback to see if it simple enough and something the Clan would like to participate in?

    Re: Rams draft GURU contest

    I love competition and i most certainly would be for a draft contest BUT 2 things

    When you say people lose points for guessing wrong is kinda bad for the contest because lets say my post for the contest is ROund 1 Justin Blackmon and I do not guess for any other round my score is a 10 and most others will have negative points because its so hard to mock players to teams after the 1st.

    Also a couple years ago we had a rams mock competition where we earned points if we got the position correct something you might want to look into: Lets say the post is WR alshon Jeffery in the 2nd but we end up taking a different WR like Reuben Randle would we receive points for the cor

    You only lose points if you predict a trade up or down and extra picks. If you select the wrong player in round one you get zero points.

    I like the thougt of adding the position as a way to earn points. How about half the points for position and then the other half for the player?

    Damn......

    I thought since he's so tall it's like having two reciever so I changed his name to plural a concept of quantity (i.e., grammatical number) representing a value of more-than-one

    If you buy that I got some ocean front property.... lol

    I'll play, sounds fun.

    BW's right, should be like 3 points for position and 7 for player (for example). And each round the points should increase (a 7th round pick is pretty impossible).

    O ok i understand

    The position point system of half the points is good...O and make sure you clarify the positions like if I guess OT Mike Adams but we draft a guard like Osmele do i get points because i guessed an O-linemen?

    EDIT: O and make some sort of tie breaker
