Hey guys! I hope everyone is doing well and having an awesome summer so far. The weather up north has been really pleasant so far and there are no indications that it'll be changing anytime soon.
Anyways, I haven't been on MCM for a couple weeks now due to a few issues I have had in the last month or so. Primarily, I had surgery done about a month ago and it has been a tough task getting back to 100% for baseball season. That, along with work and volunteering has taken up the bulk of my time and although I have browsed MCM for the past couple weeks, I haven't had the opportunity to chime in or leave any comments due to the busy schedule.
Now that my body is close to 100% shape, I can now tone down my conditioning and training regimens and finally get a chance to get back to contributing to MCM. My first order of business is posting the results of the MCM Mock Draft Contest that I held right before the NFL Draft. My apologies to everyone for the delay in handing out these results.
I would like to thank everyone for participating in this contest and hope that everyone had a fun time constructing their first round mock draft. The draft had a bunch of surprises and it was really interesting to see how everyone performed. Just a reminder, the point scheme for the contest can be viewed here.
Here are the results:
1. Deaconbrodie/Titans_Firefighter/Titanluv318 - 36 points
2. Titansfan4ever/infinitystealth - 34 points
3. Trevor2013 - 31 points
4. WinnipegTitansFan13/njthrashers - 30 points
5. Middlesex/NYTITAN21/Habi868- 29 points
6. alijeal - 24 points
7. KGDrummer - 19 points
I would like to congratulate Deaconbrodie, Titans_Firefighter and Titanluv318 for being in a 3-way tie for first place. Again, thanks to everyone for their participation and I hope that no one is discouraged by the results. I also promise that I have a few ideas for next year's contest so that it will be a more enjoyable contest. I would also use a more mathematical approach to calculating the winner next year to have a more accurate result rather than having a 3-way tie.
Just for fun, I also calculated the performance of some of the more well-known "draft experts" out there just to compare how we MCMers stacked up against the so called pundits:
1. Mike Mayock - 37 points
2. National Football Post - 36 points
3. WalterFootball - 34 points
4. Peter King/Mel Kiper - 32 points
5. Matt Miller - 25 points
I heard that McShay was more accurate than any of the aforementioned guys in his first round mock draft but I couldn't find a copy of his mock anywhere (unfortunately, I don't have an ESPN Insiders Account).
Anyways, that's it from me for now. Again, I would like to apologize for the delay in providing the results and I hope that it doesn't discourage anyone from entering the contest next year. Have a great day everyone!
