Re: Scouting Tool for Madden 17 CFM

OMN and other experts - I'm going to solicit your help once again...

You might recall that I posted about my league's draft about a couple of months ago. It's a 24-user league and I had the second pick, and your tool told me to take the CB Taukei Hodges. Turns out he was an absolute beast! So thank you for that, I've also included his ratings below after one year of progression.

Now, heading into the Season 2 Draft I have the #22, 23 and 24 picks in the first round. There are only 22 blue-chips in the entire class, though a few are in the 3-5 rounds, but I wouldn't want to reach on those guys round 1. My team is pretty stacked to this point, but my biggest needs are DT (none in the class), 4-3 OLB (none), a versatile WR (Dez will be cut after this year) and a LG + RT (deep class on o-line, think that's what I'll target in rounds 2 +3).

It's not a need because I have 83 ovr but unspectacular JJ Wilcox at SS, but I feel like my defense would be taken to the next level with an elite safety. With Hodges and Malcolm Butler at CB, Byron Jones at FS I have a ton of speed in the secondary ... and I also have a very good pass-rushing defensive line. Also - with me training my secondary every week for Hodges, I feel like I should maximize that with another secondary player, and I don't have space to progress three new rookies on my team.

Which brings me to my question. Below are the top 10 prospects in this class based on TVR (leaving out 3 TEs who are all in the top 4). Duane Russell is a FS who had an amazing combine. He's ranked as the #31 prospect on the game, but #4 in TVR. When I move him to SS on the sheet, which is where I'd play him, he goes to #2 in the class with a TVR of 96.01. Am I right to believe that this is a truly unique and elite prospect? I have a deal in place to trade #23 and #24 for #6. Then, I'm confident I can get a WR or OL at 22, and take care of the other needs in the 2nd and 3rd round.

As always, I appreciate the help!

Re: Scouting Tool for Madden 17 CFM

It is a deal worth doing, but only if you consider the ramifications. If you're thinking long term, both your CB you mentioned and this SS in question will come into their first big contract year one year apart, meaning they'll likely demand a ton of dough. Will you have enough cap space to pay them? If this looks to be a problem, and of course, the other cap space issues you'll face up until that time, you might want to look for a SS that is serviceable in lower rounds, and one you can re-sign to a moderate contract.

I know everybody gets excited about these top prospects, and so do I when I see a truly unique blue chipper, but phasing them onto a roster might work in the short term, but long term... money plays a role.

That's a really fair point, but to be honest with you I'm playing to win now. And we complete a season about every 2 months, so I'll likely never see that ramifications.

If you're saying that my biggest problem will be this kid is too much of a star, I feel like I have to do it

Should I input a 3-4 de as a dt in the scouting tool

Great move on my part! he was is a 84 OVR SS Dev with 76 AWR from the gate. His TA Short and Mid are 88 and his TA Deep is 84. Top it off he has a speed of 80 and his PlayAcc and THRonR are both over 70 as well. If this dude wasnt 23, he would be the greatest QB prospect ever! the rest of the draft turned out meh... no other starters just a bunch of solid bench players in the low 70s who have potential.

i dont usually input the person like that. what i do is input them as their true position and then i switch them to see where they fall. i then make a note in their name field that they should be switch. so that i rank them accordingly and not over draft them knowing that i will make out in the end. i switch them back once i am done scouting them.

Its just my method. i dont think there is a right or wrong way.

Scouting Tool for Madden 17 CFM

So this is my rookie TE as of Week 11 he is leading in OROY award and has already met his season goals I'm curious as to how y'all would progress him as he is shaping up to be my key offensive weapon but this is the first time I've had to draft and develope a TE since we (49ers) no longer have Vernon Davis
