It has been exactly three weeks since the NFL kicked off the 2010 version of the draft and there has been a flurry of contract activity since. Immediately after, NFL teams scrambled to lock in the next tier of talent by acquiring undrafted free agents before the competition did. Unfortunately, none of that activity included the signings of ANY of the first round draft picks.
Once one player from the first round is signed, most of the other contracts are agreed upon since it is such a “slotted” system where salary is determined by where you are picked in the first round so new contracts are dictated by the contracts of other players picked in the same vicinity of the round.
The good news? This still gives you plenty of time to load up your entries in the TMR Zoo “First Picked/Last Signed” Contest
The First Picked/Last Signed Contest is unlike any other contest you’ve entered before. Entrants are given the opportunity to predict who will be the very last first-round draft pick from the 2010 class to sign with the team that drafted him. Once you have made your choice, you could call it a day and wait until there is only one first rounder unsigned… OR, you can come back tomorrow, and every day up until all but one of the first round draft picks are under contract, and submit your entry again.
That is correct, you can enter EVERY day until there is only one unsigned draft pick remaining. How you wish to enter the contest is your choice. If you think you know exactly who will be the biggest pain in the ass, you can stack the deck and pick the same player every day during the entry period, or you can can try every player still unsigned each day until the end date. Once there is only one unsigned draft pick remaining, we will pull all of the correct entries out of the pool and select an entry at random as the winner. The strategy is yours to decide.
What do I get when I win the First Picked/Last Signed Contest? The DVD 5-Pack shown below:
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Quantum of Solace: 2-Disc Special Edition, Surrogates, X-Men Origins – Wolverine: 2-Disc Special Edition w/ Digital Copy and Tenure. On top of that, the winner will have his or her choice of ANY prize up for grabs at the TMR Zoo at the time the contest ends.
Once a player is signed, we will scratch him from the entry list and limit the field. Keep checking the home or sports page for regular updates on draft pick contract signings.
