This pool is conducted during the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday, April 25
Each entry will choose who they think will be drafted in each of the draft picks that comprise the first round of the NFL draft.
Points will be awarded based on how accurate you are with your picks. See the scoring breakdown in the "Points Distribution" section below
Points will be awarded for each pick of the draft according to the following breakdown:
10 points- Correct Pick
5 points: Pick within one draft position
3 points: Pick within two draft positions
1 points: Pick within five draft positions
0 points: Pick within six or more draft positions
NOTE: We use draft position to determine points in this pool, so if there is a trade that involves moving up or down the draft, the teams will move but the players will not. With regards to assigning points, it does not matter where the teams are listed in the draft order
The entry that accumulates the most points after the first round of the NFL draft is complete will be the NFL Draft Pool champion.
Tiebreaker #1: The entry that picks the most exact picks (10 pointers)
Tiebreaker #2: The entry that picks the most one draft position away (5 pointers)
Tiebreaker #3: The entry that picks the most two draft positions away (3 pointers)
Tiebreaker #4: If there is still a tie, the tied entries will remain tied.
To increase your chances of winning, you may play as many times as you wish. Each entry will be scored separately.
