Rumblings draft prospect-pickem(Pick your own Booms, and Busts)

I will try to simplify this some.  I used Walters 2011 draft consensus big board to get the top 32 prospects.  Your job is simple,  give your oppinion on all 32 prospects for each of the first three years.  You may think a prospect will start off slow but be a boom by the end of the third year so you can give him a differint grade for each year.  Your projections will then be graded against the fans oppinions  that prospect plays for.  I will do a poll at the end of the year for the first three years at each prospects SB Nation site.  The poll will simply ask "Based on performance, where they were drafted, and any other relevant information for that year do they consider  said player  a (Boom, Bout right, or Bust)?"   In your projections you will give each prospect a grade for each year.  A player taken in the top of the draft should play well so I dont expect a lot of Booms unless a prospect out plays his draft position. I also expect most fans will give a prospect a year  before judging him to harshly so the first year should have quite a few Bout right's.  On the other hand if you can succesfully guess which ones will fall in or out of favour early with their new fan base you could build an early lead in the points.

A= Boom

C= Bout right

F= Bust

Your comment should look like this:

1.C/C/F    2. A/A/A   3. C/A/A    4. F/F/F   (and so on all the way through the top 32.)

This is your chance to put your ideas out there compared to the so called "EXPERTS"  and see how you stack up. 

 

The points will be given out like I said in the earlier post.

The highest % of fans in the poll agree with your projection.   (50 points)

Over 70% of the fans in the poll agree with your projection.  (additional 50 points)

Over 50% of the fans in the poll agree with your projection.  (additional 25 points)

The second highest % of fans in the poll agree with your projection. ( 30 points)

The smallest % of fans in the poll agree with your projection.  (points = % in the poll)

The first years points will represent 25% of the total.  The second years points will represent 35% of th total, and the third years points 40% of the total will be added in and a champion crowned.
