2016 Draft Predictions Winner

This entry was posted by on Saturday, 30 April, 2016 at

As our members appear to be losing their guts to go for the glory, we had only 9 entries from 6 members this year. Here are the results, and it ain’t pretty.

From the rules of the contest, one point was awarded for each correct position/round combination, and one point for each correct player (thus a correct player at the correct round would be 2 points), with bonus points for guessing trades and selecting up to 3 UDFAs.

As can be seen in the table below, we were weak overall with only one player being correctly identified (Javon Hargrave, selected by both chico and copanut, and at the correct round by copanut). This illustrates how bloody difficult it is to get any pick fully correct in these predictions, and also how strangely lucky we were with last year’s winner correctly nailing three picks. Anyway, here are the results:

Yes, it’s true, copanut takes the prize for the second year in a row, and it’s not very close. Not only that, I had two different mocks either of which would have been the winner. I also was the “seasonal record” champion for 2015, so this gives me three victories in a row. This smells like a dynasty in the making. Bow before me, lesser mortals, you who are the Cleveland Browns to my Pittsburgh Steelers. Kneel before Zod!

If you think you have what it takes to dethrone me, our next contest will be the “seasonal record” predictions for 2016, so get ready for your submissions in the preseason.

    I think he probably cheated. As an admin he can change the dates on his edits.
