Predict the Steelers Draft!

In keeping with the spirit of Steelchamps "Predict the Score" posts, this one asks readers to predict the Steelers draft.   Pick 1 player that the Steelers will draft for each of the 7 rounds.  The points will be as follows:

1.  Having your player get drafted, regardless of which round.  If you predicted he would get drafted in the following round, you get these points.

      Round 1     11pts

      Round 2     12pts

      Round 3     13 pts

      Round 4     14 pts

      Round 5     15 pts

      Round 6     16 pts

      Round 7     17 pts


2.  Bonus pts for if the players gets drafted in the exact round you predicted.

      Round 1         1pt

      Round 2,3      2pts

      Rounds 4-7   3pts


The scoring is weighted to show that it is harder to pick the later rounds than it is to pick the earlier rounds.  For example, if I correctly predicted Steelers to draft Watkins in the 1st, I get 11 pts + 1 bonus pt = 12pts.  If I predicted Steelers to draft Zac Lee in the 7th, and Steelers draft him in the 6th, then I get 17 pts, but no bonus points. 

Now if some are convinced that the Steelers will trade down in the 1st, then they are free to show no 1st round picks, and 2 second round picks.  You can show your picks going in any of the rounds, just as long as the # of picks =  7 (to keep a level playing field).  By predicting TWO picks in the 2nd round, you actually have higher possible points to score, and this seems fair as it rewards you if you are going out on a limb and predicting a trade.
