Summarizing the Pick-3 entries - what do fans think about the Redskins and this week’s draft?

Who do Hogs Haven readers expect to be drafted this Thursday, Friday and Saturday?

The Pick-3 draft prediction contest isn’t closed — if you want to enter, just click the link and put your entry in the comments section — but there are now 17 entrants (and no new entries yesterday) so, given that most of the people who plan to enter have probably done so, I thought I would take this opportunity to look at which college players those 17 entrants have predicted. Perhaps by summarizing their expectations, we can divine something about what Bruce, Doug & Jay will do this weekend.

There will be 256 players chosen in this week’s draft -- that’s 7 rounds of 32, plus 32 compensatory picks. The 17 entrants in the Pick 3 contest, with the opportunity to name up to 24 players each, could have — mathematically, at least — named all 256 players. In fact, the 17 entries list a whopping total of 179 separate players, meaning that there is a good chance that some of the players actually selected by the Redskins this week will have been predicted by someone in the contest.

The real trick of the contest, or course, is to pick several of the Redskins’ actual draft picks in the right rounds. Last year, SkinsaneAsaylum led the scoring when it was all said and done. So far, he hasn’t submitted an entry in a bid to defend his title.

Let’s take a look at which players have been projected in which round by those who’ve entered the Pick 3 contest this year. Here, I will only list players that have been projected in a particular round 3 or more times.

Round 1

  • Vita Vea 15
  • Derrius Guice 9
  • Derwin James 9
  • Da’Ron Payne 6
  • Minkah Fitzpatrick 4
  • Denzel Ward 3

Round 2

  • Billy Price 11
  • Sony Michel 7
  • Justin Reid 4
  • Nick Chubb 4
  • Derrius Guice 3
  • James Daniels 3

Round 4

  • Wyatt Teller 3
  • Nick Chubb 3
  • Tim Settle 3

Round 5

  • Micah Kiser 7
  • Deadrin Senat 5
  • Mason Cole 5
  • Deshon Elliott 3
  • JC Jackson 3
  • Shaquem Griffin 3
  • Tegray Scales 3

Round 6

  • David Wells 3
  • Tim Settle 3

Round 7

  • Tre Flowers 5
  • Levi Wallace 3
  • Riley Ferguson 3

Since some players were nominated in multiple rounds, I’ll list the 14 players that got the most mentions overall here:

  1. Vita Vea 15
  2. Billy Price 12
  3. Derrius Guice 12
  4. Da’Ron Payne 9
  5. Derwin James 9
