Sports: NFL Draft Challenge (ESPN)

It is FINALLY here! One of the only sports events that it is possible to still have during quarantine, the NFL Draft! I think that it is fantastic that they are still able to have this event virtually, and I think it will be a great break from reality for sports fans around the world. The NFL Draft is always a big event, but it will be even bigger than usual this year.

There are some fun challenges on the NFL Draft that I recommend people do, but mainly the ESPN NFL Draft Challenge. You just have to answer 18 multiple choice questions, and if you somehow get them all right, you win $100,000. Even if you do not get them all right, you can still win $1000, and it is something fun to do before the draft. It only takes 10 minutes or so to do (even less if you just pick randomly), so just give it a try. I would recommend reading this article if you want to give it a serious try!

The draft starts at 8 PM Eastern time today on ESPN, so make sure to set your clocks so you do not miss it.

Just for fun, I have done my own personal mock draft, which is listed below; I may make some changes to it up until the time draft starts, but check back after the first round is done to see how I have done. There will likely be plenty of picks wrong, but I hope that I can at least get within a couple of picks for most of them. One player being picked out of position can throw off an entire mock draft though, so do not expect it to be anything close to perfect (I am not a professional football analyst sadly!). This is mainly just for my own personal amusement to see how I do today.
