NFL Draft Contest Update: Dallas Cowboys’ First Rounder Dez Bryant Is Off The Board with New Contract

bryant-mainIn an ironic turn of events, the player that has received the most votes in our First Picked/Last Signed contest, was the very first 2010 First Round NFL Draft Pick to sign a contract. He is therefore, the first player being taken off the board in our contest, leaving a field of 31 to choose from.

Bryant inked a 5-year, $11.8M contract with $8.3M guaranteed with the Cowboys last Thursday, making him the highest-drafted pick to sign so far. As mentioned, Dez was the most popular first round pick by our members to be a pain in the ass to sign. 10% of entrants picked Bryant, who is now out of the running and all votes for him will be discarded. If you stacked the deck with Dez Bryant entries, there should still be plenty of time to pick a new favorite. The NFL front offices are being extra-cautious about dishing out cash with no salary the threat of lockout/holdout next season.

Why do we care so much about draft pick signings? Because we’re giving away a nice prize pack to the contestant who can correctly guess the player from the first round who hold out the longest. Click below…

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.
