And then there were two!
Reports out of Detroit have second overall draft pick in the 2010 NFL draft, Ndamukong Suh, agreeing to a 5-year contract with the Lions, with $40M guaranteed. The deal could be worth $68M if certain incentives are met.
That only leaves two first round draft picks left to sign… #6 Russel Okung of the Seattle Seahawks, an offensive tackle from Oklahoma State and #9 C.J. Spiller, drafted by the Buffalo Bills, a running back out of Clemson.
Suh was a heavy favorite in this contest with many an entrant selecting him time and time again with their daily entry. Now it is time to stack the deck on the two remaining players left unsigned in this contest. As soon as one of them signs, the contest is over and we have our winner, so hurry up and get your final entries in.
What contest? Where have you been for the last three months?
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:
