The Winner Of The 2017 Steelers Mock Draft Contest Is …

I have now finally managed to score all of the 2017 Pittsburgh Steelers mock draft contest submissions that I received this year and according to the results that I have, Denny Durcholz won with 1,020 points.

As of right now, Denny is the unofficial winner of the contest. In order to make sure that I did not make any mistakes, all of you have until 9 AM EST Wednesday to protest that you had a higher score than he did. If no errors are found, then Denny will be paid his winnings.

The next three highest finishers all tied with 960 points and those people are Todd HallGarrett Daniel Goldberg and David Jones. all three receive a copy of the book,  Steelers’ Takeaways: Players Memories Through the Decades by Ron Lippock.

All winners need to contact me soon at admin {{at}} steelersdepot {{dot}} com to claim your winnings.

I hope you all enjoyed the contest once again this year and I am always open to making it better if you have any ideas. If you feel your submission needs to be double-checked, email me and tell me your submission name and what you think your score should be.

    Congrats Denny! Huge thanks to Dave for running the contest again. It’s always a great time. Really happy getting 5/8, just wish I was better with the rounds.

  • Spencer Krick

    Congrats, yo!

  • Matt Correll

    Congrats to Denny, and the three who tied for second. This was my first time taking part in the contest, and it was a lot of fun!

  • Alex Kozora

    Congrats Denny!

  • Maureen A Gomes

    Congratulation, Denny! Great job on the 7th round pick!

  • Nathanael Dory

    nice job!

  • Gberg51

    Congrats Denny! Was shooting for 1st but Ill take 2nd place this year lol. Cant wait to get that book!

  • blackandgoldBullion

    With the LS pick in the 6th and a couple of surprises I was pleased to get 5 as well. Very good, JT.

  • nikgreene

    Nice work everyone. Though, I propose if anyone had Colin Holba anywhere on their board, they should be the winner in spirit 😉

  • Donte Williams

    nice work Denny and all other winners

  • Milliken Steeler

    Congrats Denny!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Well Done!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    He kilt it! Congrats Young Denny!

  • Matt Correll

    I’m sure no one in their right mind picked Holba, but I wonder if anyone had Ju Ju anywhere on their list. I know he said he was very surprised to be picked by the Steelers, so I don’t think he was on anyone’s radar. But by chance– anyone have him as one of their picks?

  • Matt Manzo

    Dang! I thought I was close this year!
    Congrats Denny!

  • PaeperCup

    Wow, hit the 4th and 7th dead on. Impressive. I only got the 6th correct.

  • D.j. Reynolds

    If anyone got that one right, they should immediately be declared the winner!

  • PaeperCup

    WAit, Cameron Sutton was a 3rd round pick, not 2nd.

  • D.j. Reynolds

    I agree – congrats! I suggest Denny get a mock draft published on the site next year too!

  • Jason McDonald

    Thats why he only got 60 points for it

  • SteelersDepot

    Two people had him in their submissions.

  • PaeperCup

    Gotcha…I didn’t read the rules. I often sign up for things I don’t thoroughly understand

  • Denny

    Thanks to Dave, Alex, Matthew, and the other contributors for the great content on this site. As far as the contest goes, I like to say that even the blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then.

  • SoCal Steeler

    Congratulations, Denny and to the top 4! It was my first stab at it this year but it was fun and I’ll be doing it again next year. Thanks to Dave, Alex, Matthew and all the other guys for their great work!

  • JamesinNYC

    Congratulations and nicely done! Thanks Dave for running this every year.
