Re: Draft News story vs Draft board

Players will disappear on the board from time to time as they are not shown while they have an injury. This is very common to see if you read a news story that says they got hurt, they will basically not be on the board until draft day at this point.
This makes sense as you cannot really scout a guy who is on the sideline injured and not playing.

My assumption at this point is that several players actually have stories attached to them, however the game only chooses to tell some of them. So other actions may happen due to those stories even without the user knowing what is going on.

The WR to CB thing also comes from the storylines (M15 maybe) were a guy would either play both or make the change for some silly reason. Unfortunately, they mostly came in at very low OVR simply because the player wasn't rated for the new position and were practically unusable due to earlier position changes being limited (no swapping between offense and defensive positions).

Seen this on WR to CB and also OT to DE. At least this year you can change them to their original position, or at least give them some ratings boost to give them a chance at making it at their new spot before game auto-deletes them for having such a poor OVR.

Nowhere to be found during the actual draft. Looked for a solid 10min at every offensive lineman position, couldn't find him. Went through every team after it was over, dude had totally vanished and retired or something.
Check UDFAs, he will be there most likely as it sounds like he was part of Group Y for when the scout-able players flip during the season. I had 2 fantastic looking ST safeties lined up to draft in Round 7. Nowhere to be found but were in FA.

I found that as well. Found a stud SS projected round 7 that was not on draft board. I assumed someone had picked him up but he was in the UDFA list. Strange
