Gonos' Mock Draft Blog

Welcome to my NFL Mock Draft Contest! Notice, I said "my" -- this is not run by CBSSports.com.

No idea what the prize will be. It will have to be something I personally give, not the company. So expect something like, a pair of unmatched socks or half a loaf of bread, or a used DVD of "Erin Brockovich." This is for a friendly competition, but I'll make sure to send the winner something.

Here's how this is going to work:
  • Fill out who you think will be drafted in the entire first round (31 players, sorry Pats).
  • For every correct player picked for each spot, you get points (1-10 is worth 10 pts, 11-20 is worth 15 pts, 21-32 is worth 20 pts).
At the bottom, I have some bonus questions to fill in also, for extra points.
