    $50 a man

    32 picks in the First round Only

    Picking the player that each team will Draft, most correct picks Wins it all

    Using only the Number positions , not the Teams because if someone moves up

    could be Fun

    How do you do this? Pick the players ahead of the draft? If so, what if there are trades?

    The other issue is Twitter users release the picks before they are announced.

    You pick ahead of the draft & not sure if BAS will allow it but in the past usually allowed 1 edit before cutoff time.

    Sometimes when there's a lock at #1 a team will announce well in advance but no harm because that pick is a wash & everyone basically nails it.

    You pick each draft position, not the team, so trades are irrelevant unless you believe one or more is going to happen in advance & plan your picks accordingly.

    Doesn't matter about the trade ups or trade downs
    That's why I said we go by Number only, the teams could change

    You have to pick all 32 before the Draft starts. Probably will make the deadline an Hour before the Draft starts

    Yep, this .... but without an Edit....

    part of the fun part is when they trade up or down ... throws a zigger into it

    I had the top 5 or 6 right in the nba draft last year posted in some thread. I'd do that. Nfl is too hard to call team for team. All I know for sure is 2 of the top 3. Allen 1st overall. Barkley 2nd or 3rd.....and this year is not a given with anything

    well to be fair, I think a Draft Contest is a totally coin flip. But no problem

    you might get the first 5 or 6 right or so, but after that, who knows...

    My college roommate and I used to do this during the draft before the days of Twitter. I think we would only get like 5 or 6 right and that was doing it live.
