The first round draft picks are finally being signed at an accelerated rate. Just this evening the 13th overall pick, Brandon Graham of the Philadelphia Eagles signed a 5-year deal in which the cash has not been announced yet. The second coming of our savior, Tim Tebow of the Denver Broncos has also signed… his was to the tune of 5-years, $11.25M/$33M max with $8.7M of that guaranteed.
The highest draft pick signed so far has been 8th overall, Rolando McClain, linebacker for the Oakland Raiders. His deal was $40M over 5 years with $23M guaranteed. McClain is the only top 10 pick to sign so far, but at this rate, we should be seeing many more agree with their teams in the upcoming week.
After today’s signings, there are only 25 first round draft picks still unsigned, so 7 have been removed from our contest.
The First Picked/ Last Signed contest of course. Why should you enter? 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.
