New, comments

What’s gonna happen to the guys that most people have never heard of?

NOTE: ROSTER ENTRIES ARE NOW CLOSED.

GOOD LUCK!!

It’s time for a roster contest!

Here’s the deal. I’ll list the late round draft picks (everyone taken after the middle of the 4th round) and several UDFA players who were in college a few months ago.

You predict which ones will make the team or practice squad, and which ones won’t.

It’s that simple.

6 Late Draft Picks

  • Round 4 - Wes Martin - OG
  • Round 5 - Ross Pierschbacher - OG/C
  • Round 5 - Cole Holcomb - ILB
  • Round 6 - Kelvin Harmon - WR
  • Round 7 - Jimmy Moreland - CB
  • Round 7 - Jordan Brailford - OLB

6 Offensive UDFAs

  • Craig Reynolds, RB
  • Gary Johnson, LB
  • Steven Sims, WR
  • Donald Parham, TE
  • Jerald Foster, G
  • Blake Hance, OT

6 Defensive UDFAs

  • Deion Harris, DB
  • JoJo McIntosh, S
  • B.J. Blunt, ILB
  • Ryan Bee, DL
  • Jonathan Bonner, DL
  • Austin Maloata, DL

That’s 18 players — 6 draft picks, 6 offensive UDFAs & 6 defensive UDFAs.

Make a prediction for each of these 18 guys and score points. Here’s how it’ll work:

  1. For each player, simply predict “TEAM”, “PS” (practice squad) or “CUT” using the entry form at the link provided below
  2. Each correct prediction will earn you points; each wrong prediction loses you points
  3. Picks need to be made by 10:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 30 August 2019. Note that entries will not be accepted if submitted after the Redskins publicly announce ANY roster moves following the end of the Baltimore Ravens game, regardless of the original deadline.
  4. The results will be determined based on the status of these 18 players on Thursday, 5 September 2019, at 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. In case of confusion or dispute, Bill-in-Bangkok will be the final arbiter of each player’s status.
  5. Any of the 18 players above who are listed on the 53-man roster, PUP list, IR list or NFI list will count as “team”.
  6. Players on the Practice Squad should be self-explanatory.
  7. Everyone else, will be deemed to be “cut”.

Note: In the past entries have been posted in the comments and I have tabulated them by hand. This year, Bryan Stabbe volunteered to help me out by building a really schmick entry form that makes it easier to enter and much easier to tabulate the results. Thanks, Bryan!!!

Sample Entry:

6 Late Draft Picks

  • B.J. Blunt, ILB PS
  • Ryan Bee, DL CUT
  • Jonathan Bonner, DL CUT
  • Austin Maloata, DL CUT

=====================================================

Let’s see how the scoring would work out. For simplicity, let’s just assume that I only got four players wrong: Jimmy Moreland, Gary Johnson, B.J. Blunt and Jonathan Bonner.

Sample Scoring:

4th round - 1 Team right = 5 points

5th round - 2 Team right = 12 points

6th round - 1 Team right (7 pts) = 7 points

7th round - 1 PS right (5 pts), 1 PS wrong (-1 pts) = 4 points

UDFAs - 41 points

  • Team - 1 right = 10 points
  • Team - 1 wrong = -1 point
  • PS - 4 right = 28 points
  • PS - 1 wrong = -1 point
  • Cut - 4 right = 6 points
  • Cut - 1 wong = -1 point

Total Points = 69 (5 + 12 + 7 + 4 + 41)
