The annual BGN draft prediction game is back for another year! The general idea is pretty simple. The Eagles have eight picks in the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft, so you can give us eight names you think they will pick. The person with the most correct names is the winner. For an example of how this game has worked in the past, check out last year's version.
The strategy is entirely up to you. If you want to load up on possible names early in the draft and try to win by getting two right, that's fine. If you want to basically do a mock draft of all eight picks and try to hit on names later ... that's also fine.
If you think there will be a trade down (or up), then pick your names accordingly. For that reason, we really shouldn't be commenting on everyone else's picks. You can include your reasoning if you like, but let's generally try to keep this thread as clean as we can so I can more easily find the winner after the draft ends Saturday evening.
You must enter in the comments of this post. Comments will close when the draft officially begins on Thursday night. Tie-breaker goes to the users that post the soonest - speed counts.
So what do you get if you win? This year there’s a prize thanks our friends over at Philly Phaithful! This year’s top winner will receive free t-shirt(s) for number of picks they correctly guess. So, for example, if you win the competition by getting three picks correct, you win three free shirts. Here’s a look at their selection.
Speaking of Philly Phaithful, here’s a reminder that they’re giving BGN readers 30% off on all their merchandise until the end of the month. That’s a pretty good deal so go check it out while you still can.
Happy picking! Good luck.
