Just found this prize is $10 million if you select all 32 first round picks correctly. Slightly more than Pudge is offering on Falcfans but you could be the next millionaire.

Isn't that impossible unless you knew all the trades that would occur?

Certainly not impossible and I bet at least 2 players have perfect scores.

I've never heard of anybody predicting more than 20 or so picks perfectly in the first round. Like in each of the past few drafts there have been close to a half dozen trades in Round 1 alone, which are practically impossible to predict.

If someone was to guess the first round perfectly, it would be the luckiest guess of all time.

Yea some of the best mocks, that I have seen recently, don't come anywhere near getting the whole first round right, not even half. I wonder if it's ever been done actually.

Having 10 million dollars on the line you know there will be alot of contestants. If it can happen in the NCAA getting every pick right why not the NFL Draft. Probably 3-5 yrs ago this girl got every pick right in the NCAA bracket and when asked what her secret was she said I picked the team with the colors I liked the most. :shock: Some one who probably doesn't even follow the draft will probably get all 32 right and make us draftniks look like fools. :lol:

Sorry, scout, I don't think it's possible, which is why Anheiser Busch can offer such a huge prize, because they know they'll never have to give it away.

The NCAA tourney is a completely different animal than the NFL Draft. The Tourney is based off picking the best teams. Rarely does anybody get all the picks right, but anybody with some insight into college basketball can get most of the picks right, (like 80%).

Last year, The Huddle Reports mock draft scores had the best mock correctly matching 11 of the 32 picks in the first round. The mock draft king, Rick Gosselin only matched 8 picks, and made 29 of 32 first rounders correct.

My association with The Huddle Report ended last year, but I was working with them since like 2004, and I don't think anybody even hit on all 32 first rounders, which means that nobody ever even gets the 32 players selected right, let alone match them with the right team.

Unless I'm mistaken, I don't think anybody based on their grades has ever gotten more than 15 correct matching players to team.

Basically the way it works is that for every trade made in the first round, that's 2 picks a person is probably going to get wrong. And if there's just 4 or 5 trades, that's basically 8-10 picks you've basically missed on.

Again, I think it's impossible.

Hmm, well never say never but I didn't think the stats were that bad as far as matching the slots in the round. I believe its slots you have to match not the team but I'll read the directions again. Where's Ms Cleo when you need her? :lol: It gives us something to shoot for but almost an impossible task. You know people will becoming out of the wood works to try and win this and every so often someone surprises.Oh well its free so why not try.

Sorry to hear your not with the huddle report. I still subscribe and like it. Looking forward to your 7 round Falcon mock and value board.
