The number of 2011 NFL first round draft picks that are still unsigned was reduced to six on Monday as J.J. Watt signed his contract with the Houston Texans, Christian Ponder signed with the Minnesota Vikings and Danny Watkins agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles. All three could possibly make some significant contributions in the upcoming season.
The highest first round draft pick that hasn’t signed yet is #17 Nate Solder, picked by the New England Patriots. He is followed by #18 Corey Liuget (Sand Diego Padres), #19 Prince Amukamara (New York Giants), #21 Phil Taylor (Cleveland Browns), #22 Anthony Castonzo (Indianapolis Colts), and #24 Cameron Jordan (New Orleans Saints).
Which will be the last first rounder left standing when everyone else is signed? If you guess correctly, you can win a really great prize…
The First Picked/Last Signed Contest is unlike any other contest you’ve entered before, well, unless you entered the contest last year. Entrants are given the opportunity to predict who will be the very last first-round draft pick from the 2011 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 until the contest closes, to 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.
