It’s been over a month since the conclusion of the 2010 edition of the NFL Draft and the highest draft pick to sign has only been from the latter half of the third round. That player is Taylor Price, the 90th pick overall out of Ohio. The New England Patriots locked up their new wide receiver for four years to the tune of $2.5M with a signing bonus of $700K.
Besides Price, only 11 other picks have signed, most from the sixth and seventh rounds. By the time teams get around to signing their first round pick, we may be well into camp… or the preseason.
Why do we care so much about first round signings? Because of the latest TMR Zoo featured contest: The First Picked/Last Signed Contest.
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.
What do I get when I win the First Picked/Last Signed Contest? The DVD 5-Pack shown below:
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Quantum of Solace: 2-Disc Special Edition, Surrogates, X-Men Origins – Wolverine: 2-Disc Special Edition w/ Digital Copy and Tenure. On top of that, the winner will have his or her choice of ANY prize up for grabs at the TMR Zoo at the time the contest ends.
Once a first round player is signed, we will scratch him from the entry list and limit the field. Keep checking the home or sports page for regular updates on draft pick contract signings.
