This is sort of the pre-thread to the contest. While it went very well last year, looking back at some of the questions on the entry form, I thought some of them could use some refining.

Listed is last year's entry form. The questions in red will not return for this 2011 edition.


2010 Draft Challenge Entry Questions

Name the Team that Selects Sam Bradford:
Name the Last Player in the Draft's Green Room to be Selected:
Who Will be the First Team to Trade Up:
Who Will be the First Team to Trade Down:
Who Will be the First Team to Trade for a Player:
In What Round will Tim Tebow be Selected:
Who Will be the Vikings' 1st Draft Pick Selected:

Tiebreaker
Who Will be the Vikings 2nd Draft Pick Selected:


The 2011 Challenge will be live on April 8.

For anyone wondering, the Bradford and Tebow questions will return and the names will obviously be replaced with two players from this year's draft. I have some ideas for a couple of new questions, but I want to get some of your suggestions as well. What are some new questions you all think would work well on this year's challenge?

Some of the new questions I'm considering:


How many quarterbacks will be drafted in the 1st round?

Who will be the 1st Wide Receiver taken?

How many trades involving 2011 1st round draft picks will occur?

Who will be the Packers 1st Draft Pick selected?

Who will be the Bears 1st Draft Pick selected?

Who will be the Lions 1st Draft Pick selected?

Will the Vikings' 1st Draft Selection be in the green room (yes or no question)?


I did not include any actual named player questions since I already know what players I am using for those (theyre both quarterbacks). Thoughts? More suggestions?

Yes or no? What about ALL the other options?

You'd be surprised.. if nothing else, I'd guarantee at least two people would request clarification on that question and be dead serious.

How about the first at each position, Ian?

So the first WR/RB/QB/TE/C/OT/OG/DE/DT/LB/S/CB?

Also, which analyst will have the first dumb comment of the night, on each of the two main broadcasts.

What about which draft pick will be wearing the worst looking suit?

What draft pick will be having a televised party that ends before he gets picked?

Friendly reminder.. you have 10 days to submit/edit your draft challenge entry. Dont let the draft sneak up on you and miss out on submitting an entry. The game is locked after the 1st pick is made.

Ian, how does the tiebreaker work? Odds are anyone and everyone potentially involved in a tiebreak situation will not name get the tiebreaker question right.

The tiebreaker rules are in my first post on the entries thread. The actual tiebreaker question is the first of five tiebreakers..

I like that; a couple of "time" questions would be really good I think.

Two days and counting.. Get those entries in..

Its weird.. two days to go (more or less), and I still dont really know what the Vikings are going to do at #12, nor do I have any clues about most of those entry questions.. fun times.

Really is weird, man. Almost nothing would shock me. It's been a long time since we've been this in the dark on a Vikings pick. Or any of the 1st rd picks really, for that matter.

Could be a crazy draft.
