After poring over 73 mock Drafts, with three correct selections in the correct Round, torindorn4life picked the most players ultimately drafted by the Raiders.
Editor's note: For correctly predicting 3 Raiders draft selections (and even in the correct rounds!) torindorn4life will receive a free Silver & Black Pride T-shirt as the winner of this contest. Congratulations. Wear it with pride.
The picks were:
Round 1: Khalil Mack
Round 3: Gabe Jackson
Round 7: Jonathan Dowling
Honorable mention goes to GRANDVILLAPIANO, who correctly mocked Khalil Mack and Derek Carr. Darn good!
To put in perspective how difficult it was to mock the Raider's Draft, only 30%, or 22 participants, got one selection correct in the proper Round, the remaining 70% did not get a single selection correct. To be sure, many folks correctly selected Khalil Mack in the 1st Round. What level of difficulty does correctly mocking the entire Raider's Draft represent? Remember Warren Buffet's billion dollar NCAA Tournament Challenge? Almost that difficult.
I tried to catch up to torindorn4life to get his reaction to winning the Challenge and maybe pick his brain to learn a few things about mocking a draft. When I finally found him, he was already surrounded by reporters and in the middle of an interview. I tried to squeeze my way to the front:
Bleed: "Excuse me, Mr. torindorn4life, could I get a few words?"
Ines Sainz: (A bit annoyed at me) "Oye, ya estoy aqui con torindorn4life. No puedes esparar hasta que termine?"
Bleed: "Huh? What'd she say?"
torindorn4life: "Huh, what'd you say?"
Ines Sainz: (Still annoyed) "Mira, cuando terminemos aquí, El Tornidorn4life y yo, vamos a echar un polvo. Asi, vas a esparar un gran rato!"
torindorn4life: "Hey, Bleed. When I'm done here I promise to catch up with you and answer any questions you have. Are we good?"
Bleed: "Uh, you sure you're Ok here? She seems kinda pissed!"
torindorn4life: (With a huge grin on his face) "Yeah, man, I AM ALL GOOD HERE."
So, I guess that's what life as a mock champion is like.
Again, congratulations to torindorn4life, for the winning entry and thank you to all those that participated. And more importantly to all of us, here's to a successful Oakland Raider's 2014 Draft!
