Ian,

Did you mix up my name with Odle since they are right next to each other??

Looks like you should have 5 points.

Boehringer......100 points

Clarett: minus 200 points

Which is interesting, since it's not his cow. But, to understand the point of the posts is to understand him.

Hey Todd and everyone! The draft still gets me going, even with #48 being our first pick.

Predictions:
1: None of us in the draft challenge get the Vikings first pick right.
2: If by some miracle Mixon is the choice I will win the draft challenge.

3 by my calculations.

Looks like I'm going to need my 1st & 3rd pick to be correct to win this-
Vikings’ 1st Player Selected: Dion Dawkins, OG, Temple
Vikings’ 2nd Player Selected: Obi Melifonwu, S, UConn
Vikings’ 3rd Player Selected: Kareem Hunt, RB Toledo

I don't think my 2nd pick has a chance. From what I'm seeing now, Obi won't make it out of round 2.

With me it's Mixon or bust. I'm a little confused about the scoring, but if he is the Vikings first pick I get three for the team that picks Mixon, I think one point for the round Mixon is taken, and I'm not sure how many points I get for getting the Vikings first pick right.

Trades are just happening left and right.. 5 Vikings trades already. Nobody predicted more than 4. Already 8 Compensatory pick trades; I predicted the most with 10.

Might need to rethink the trade questions next year lol.

I think I came within an eyelash of getting those points. Hopefully Cook is the better player. Time will tell. Thanks for running the challenge. It adds so much fun to the draft.

Love doing it. Love that it now goes into Day 3. Need to find ways to make it last longer or up until the last selection.

How about correctly picking the last player drafted worth 10 points. A total hail Mary shot to win the contest.

Nah. I've thought about having folks pick the position of Mr. Irrelevant, but that's about it. I'm not interested in anything hail mary-ish, points wise, that doesn't involve the Vikings.

Should we ever have the last pick going into the draft, I may do something wild with it. But, outside of that, the position will be the only thing I do with it, if I do anything at all.

you already have the 7th round covered with total trades by the Vikings, last trade by the Vikings, Compensatory Picks, which player will select Mixon

and Yes I know Mixon was already picked...

Just trying to find ways to make it better. It can always be better.

I may include a mid round player in the team questions. Next year is a big time quarterback year. I know that will be the flavor of the contest, at least to some extent. Hopefully, we wont need to pick one.

Thanks.. DeLain essentially just won. I'll let it play out of course, but he stuck the 3rd selection. First person to ever do it.
