The TMR Zoo “First Picked/Last Signed” contest is officially closed! The correct answer is the 5th overall pick, Justin Blackmon, a wide receiver from Oklahoma State who was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Justin Blackmon was the official winner when Kendall Wight, the 20th overall pick by the Tennessee Titans, inked his contract today.
Justin Blackmon still hasn’t signed at the time of this post. The holdup is over guaranteed money. Blackmon was arrested for drunken driving and took a plea deal that did not include any jailtime. The Jacksonville Jaguars want their own interests protected in their contract with Blackmon in case this becomes routine behavior.
To determine the winning entry in the First Picked/Last Signed contest we will pull all of the entries which guessed Justin Blackmon as the last first round draft pick to sign. A winner will be selected at random from those entries and announced on our contest and giveaway page.
We should have our winner confirmed by the end of the week so keep checking the contest page… and feel free to enter all of the other active contests at the TMR Zoo. Our next big NFL contest will be our annual “Beat the House” football pool. Beat the House is receiving a complete overhaul this season… prepare your socks to be knocked off by both the user interface and the prizes.
Stay tuned for future announcements!
