    Giants Draft Class Challenge - Vote Now!

    Great teams are built through drafts. Even greater debates are built through brackets. - VIEW FULL BRACKET HERE -

    Giants.com is combining all of the above in the “NYG Draft Class Challenge,” to determine which draft class the fans feel is best in franchise history.

    Beginning today, March 19, a voting window will open up on Giants.com, where fans will decide which classes advance and will be able to re-live the distant (and not-so-distant) history of Giants draft picks with through videos, articles, photo galleries, and more.
    The field has been narrowed to 16 classes, which are divided into four regions: Polo Grounds, Yankee Stadium, Giants Stadium, and MetLife Stadium. Voting will take place each week from Monday-Thursday, and the winners of each round will be revealed on the same Friday. Making things more interesting, the championship will be decided by a one-day voting extravaganza on Monday, April 8.

    Following is a schedule of the challenge from 16 classes down to one:

    Round of 16: March 19-21 (Winners revealed Fri., March 22)
    Quarterfinals: March 25-28 (Winners revealed Fri., March 29)

    Sorry this might be a dumb question, I am pretty new here and have not seen something like this posted on here so I really do not know how it works. Do we pick which ones we think are the best here on the thread..? Or is there like a poll/bracket type of deal that we sign onto and fill out our picks?
