Post The "Top 10" Draft Contest
Here's an idea for an offseason contest. We often hear "X is a top 10 pick" and it often feels like there are more than 10 top ten picks as we head into the draft. So I thought it would be fun to try to actually predict who will and won't be in the top 10.

We start with this list (http://www.businessinsider.com/nfl-mock ... rts-2015-4) to get an expert consensus on who the top 10 picks in the NFL draft will be.

They are as follows, in no particular order.

Jameis Winston
Leonard Williams
Donte Fowler
Vic Beasley
Brandon Scherff
Kevin White
Marcus Mariota
Shane Ray
Danny Shelton
Amari Cooper

Everyone starts at 0. You list which of the above players you think will not be top 10 selections. for each one you get right, you get a point. for each one you get wrong, you lose a point.

Suppose you pick 4 names from the list above. You would then pick 4 names NOT on the list above who you expect to actually be taken in the 1st 10 picks. for each one of these you get correct you get a point. There is no penalty for being wrong with these "replacement picks".

The lowest score theoretically possible would be -10 and the highest score would be 20. Whoever has the highest score wins.

My attempt...

Not in the top 10...

Jameis Winston -- The Buccs heaped praise on him early and often. I think they just figured he's the guy someone might trade up for.
Shane Ray -- a little small, a little slow. is he enough of a technician to play early downs or is he pass rush specialist?
Brandon Scherff -- I think most teams view him as an interior player, and there are a number of good interior prospects available later.

Replacemet list
Randy Gregory
La'el Collins
Malcom Brown
