    The Winner of the 9th Annual KFFL Seahawks Fans Draft Contest Is...

    ...jammer!

    Congratulations to jammer for winning last year's contest with 50 points, correctly predicting we'd select Kris Durham (in the 7th round instead of the 4th), that we'd go with a safety with our 5.156 pick, that we'd go CB with what was our 5.157 pick, and that we'd go OLB with our 7.241 pick. With this win jammer becomes the third multiple winner in the contest's history.

    -------------------------------------------

    I ran into one situation I wasn't entirely sure how to handle, and it would have made the difference in who won. Going into the draft we had 2 5th round picks: 5.156 and 5.157. During the draft, we traded our 2nd round pick to Detroit for their 3rd and 4th round picks, plus a swap of 5th and 7th round picks. This meant instead of 5.156 and 5.157, we now had 5.154 and 5.156. Everyone selected 2 5th rounders, the question was how to credit the 5.156 and 5.157 selections versus the actuals at 5.154 and 5.156.

    Since the 5.154 selection was 5.157 originally, I credited the pick as such. So if you selected a cornerback with our first 5th round pick (5.156), and we selected a cornerback with our first 5th round pick (5.154), I did NOT give credit for right position, right slot. After looking back through the old draft contest posts from SilverSeahawk, I believe this way is the truest to his original intent.

    And in the interest of full disclosure, doing it this way hurt me the most. I had the Seahawks selecting Richard Sherman at 5.156, so instead of getting right player, right slot credit (for nailing our first 5th round pick), I gave myself right player, wrong slot credit, which ended up being the difference between my winning or losing.

    Thanks for doing this MK, this contest was a long unresolved message board question. I'm happy this is now scored and a bit surprised at the result as I thought SuperHawks had won. My big victory a few seasons ago was in accurately picking Steve Vallos in the 7th round so I'm no great prognosticator. However I"m somewhat humbly now in the esteemed group of multiple winners but need to acknowledge a great deal of my knowledge comes from my mocking with my usually very knowledgeable co-manager McGruff

    It appears only five of us guessed right on players the team actually picked. It was surprising none of us guessed the right player at the right slot, though it appears you were the closest to picking the right player at the right slot which would have won the contest.

    Thanks again for resolving this matter and to everyone who was involved in it.
