Set reminder for a custom field in lead

I have created a custom field in lead.  "Assigned To" and then a pick list of our contractors (they are not users)  Is it possible to have a remider set to notify me if noo ne has been assigned after 24 hours?

Sounds like you need a time based workflow rule:

There are a few ways to accomplish this, but I think the easiest way to accomplish this is to add the value "Unassigned" to the picklist, making that the default value. Then, create a list view of leads filtering on that value. Then you or whoever is responsible for keeping on top of it have a quick list to check every morning!
