Down to the Wire: Round 10 NFR Team Roping Steer Draw
Are there any cattle in here that will take a top team out of the world standings race?
NFR Steers

Round 10 will mark the fourth run on the first pen of 2022 NFR team roping steers, with some steers standing out heads or tails above the rest.

Steer 57 has won an event-high of $51,764 a man for the NFR team ropers who’ve drawn him this week, and Jake Orman and Brye Crites have him tonight. They’re in it for the day money, so they could play spoilers for the field of ropers who need to win high enough up in the day money for a shot at a world title. Riley and Brady Minor have the second best steer in the pen with 36, who’s responsible for $40,106 in earnings for the teams that have drawn him.

Kaleb Driggers and Junior Nogueira—who need to catch tonight to seal the deal—have a steer that nobody has won a dime on this week. But good news: he isn’t a straight maverick. Clay Smith spun him to be 3.4 before Jake Long got flagged out for a crossfire in Round 4, and Patrick Smith just got a leg on him.

“Everyone at the top has a chance,” Cattle Contractor Bobby Joe Hill said. “The only one I don’t love is Jake Orman’s, but he’s the highest money earning steer of the week.”

Cody Snow and Wesley Thorp: 58

Jake Orman and Brye Crites made a clean 4.5-second run on him in Round 4, but he’s also given two teams a plus-five in Las Vegas: The Minors and Tanner Tomlinson and Patrick Smith.

Chad Masters and Joseph Harrison were 4.4 on this steer in Round 7, and Coleman Proctor and Logan Medlin were 5.6 with him in Round 1.

Cody Snow and Wesley Thorp were 5.3 on this one in Round 1, worth $7,461.60—his only check of the week. Andrew Ward missed him in Round 4 and Jonathan Torres got a leg on him in Round 7.

Clay Smith and Jake Long: 53

This won has already picked up $32,955 for ropers at this year’s NFR, including a 4.5-second run for Cody Snow and Wesley Thorp and a go-round-winning 3.9 for Tyler Wade and Trey Yates.

Chad Masters and Joseph Harrison: 48

This steer has only won one check at the Finals, worth $4,041.70 with Clay Smith and Jake Long splitting fifth and sixth on him in Round 7 with a 4.5. Rhen Richard missed him in Round 4 and Brye Crites missed him in Round 1.

Tyler Wade and Trey Yates: 37

Brady Minor got a leg on him in Round 1, as did Logan Medlin in Round 4. Andrew Ward and Buddy Hawkins tied for third and fourth in Round 7 with him with a 4.4.

Dustin Egusquiza and Travis Graves: 33

This steer got a check in Round 4 with Tanner Tomlinson and Patrick Smith’s 5.0 run, but Rhen Richard missed him in Round 1 and Levi Lord missed him in Round 7.

JR Dees and Levi Lord: 45

This steer has won $16,788 this week, including Andrew Ward and Buddy Hawkins’ 5.2-second Round 1 run and Junior Nogueira’s sixth place leg in Round 4.

Coleman Proctor and Logan Medlin: 43

Lightning Aguilera and Jonathan Torres split third and fourth in Round 4 on this steer, but that was the only check won on him this week. Trey Yates missed him in Round 1, and Travis Graves got a leg on him in Round 7 to be 9.1.

Andrew Ward and Buddy Hawkins: 49

Nobody has won money on this one yet. Clay Smith missed him in Round 1, Wesley Thorp missed him in Round 4 and Riley Minor broke the barrier to be 3.7 on him in Round 7.

Tanner Tomlinson and Patrick Smith: 42

Clay Tryan and Jade Corkill were 4.5 on this steer in Round 1, and JR Dees and Levi Lord got him down in 4.7 in Round 4. This happens to be the steer that Kaleb Driggers roped the nose and fished with in Round 7. This steer is straight, and he’s a go-round chance with nothing to lose. You could see 3.2 tonight.

Clay Tryan and Jade Corkill: 59

Tyler Wade and Trey Yates won the day money on this steer worth $28,913.70 a man with a 3.9 in Round 7. If they’re going for the round, this is a heck of a steer to have. Dustin Egusquiza turned him to be 3.9 but Travis Graves got a leg.

Kaleb Driggers and Junior Nogueira: 52

Nobody has won anything on this steer as of yet, but it’s the steer Clay Smith and Jake Long got flagged out for a crossfire on and the one Patrick Smith got a leg with to be 9.4. Travis Graves missed him. He’s slower and maybe a little to the left.
