KDP's 10 For 10 makes it's return for the NFL Draft. Predict the top 10 selections in Thursday's first round and stand atop the hill as the best prognosticator in the land.

Welcome to KDP's 10 For 10: The Mock Draft Edition. For those of you that took part in the competition over the 2010 season and playoffs, welcome back. BTB member 'BishopWest' won the inaugural season contest, correctly picking 117 games over the 17 weeks. Member 'jstaubach' was the first and only person to pick 10 out of 10 games, which didn't occur until week 11. Now, 10 For 10 is going to see who is the best draft prognosticator and forecaster.

You will have until 6pm Eastern Thursday April 28th to submit your entries.


Your task, to correctly pick the first 10 selections of Thursday's first round in the 2011 NFL Draft. You can get partial points per slot, but the object is to predict the team, position and player. This means that the person who correctly predicts a trade will have a leg up on someone who doesn't. Conversely, the guy who plays it safe will do better than the risk taker who is off the mark, so plan your strategies accordingly!

Follow the jump for the rules, some resources and your chance to live in mock draft infamy.

-- You will pick the first 10 selections of the first round.

-- Your picks must be in the proper format. They cannot be a 'reply' to someone else's post. You will be allowed one 'correction' reply to your post, that also has to be submitted before the deadline. Any entry that doesn't follow the rules will not be scored. It's not trying to be strict or anything, it's just a lot of work scoring contests.

-- You are allowed to make trades, though you do need to explain the transaction. If you want to, please explain the trades ONLY in a reply to the entry. The draft value chart applies for this exercise, argue about it's merit later :)

-- The top 5 scoring drafts will be featured in the results post.

-- I'm going to ask for some help from the community. Obviously there will be lots of other things to cover for the site than the contest, so in the interest of expediency, if you have the time, score your own drafts. I will definitely get to them all, so if you don't have the chance, don't worry.
