Three down, 28 more to go. Today, the Carolina Panthers came to a mutual agreement with their first pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, linebacker Luke Kuechly. The deal is reportedly worth $12.58 million over four years with every cent guaranteed.
Kuechly was picked 9th overall and was touted by many as the best linebacker in the 2012 draft class and is now the third 2012 first round draft pick to agree to terms with their new team. The previous two were Melvin Ingram of the San Diego Chargers and Bruce Irvin of the Seattle Seahawks.
The three announcements mean that those three players are the incorrect answer to our 2012 First Picked/Last Signed contest.
What is the First Picked/Last Signed contest?
It is unlike any other contest you’ve entered before, well, unless you entered this contest last year or the year before. Entrants are given the opportunity to predict who will be the very last first-round draft pick from the 2012 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.
