Packers.com Draft Day Challenge Prize Winners Announced

050424rodgers_a.jpg



Over a two-week period, more than 7,000 Green Bay Packers fans took part in the Packers.com Draft Day Challenge in an attempt to predict the identity of the Packers' first selection in the 2005 NFL Draft.

Of that pool, 29 individuals correctly predicted that Cal quarterback Aaron Rodgers would be the Packers' first pick. Surprisingly, only one of those fans was from California -- Chris Vogel of El Dorado, Calif.

The rest of the correct picks came from nine other states, Canada (Michael Sprenger of Chatham, Ontario) and Denmark (Jesper Raundall Christensen of Hjorring, Nordjylland).

From the pool of 29 finalists, Packers.com randomly selected three prize winners. They are:

Matthew Basford of New Orleans, LA, Maribeth Becker of La Crosse, WI, and James Erdman of Somerset, WI. The prize packages won by these three contestants are listed below, followed by the names of the 29 finalists and a list of the top 10 most common predictions.
