There's a WR in the draft who started out as being a mid 1st rounder. His scouted skills are: Catching B+, Release B, Spectacular Cat B. After the combine he graded out as Blue Chip prospect with a TVR of 87.30 and a (4.43 40 time) but a draft story came up for him saying "he dropped in the latest mock draft due to a public dispute with his coaches". He is now listed as a mid 3rd rounder. I wasn't sure which draft story to use in the tool so I plugged in the story of player left team on his own volition. Once I did that his TVR dropped to 85.55. The tool still has him at Normal development which is cool with me. Would he be worth taking in the 2nd round? As I mentioned, he's still showing as blue chip prospect.


Hmm that's an new story to me. The 'kicked off team' one might be a better one to use though. I'd still say he's worth a second round pick though.

Be wary of converting HBs to FB as he's unlikely to have the necessary blocking skills. You'll need to train him up in that department which is an expensive upgrade and FBs are tough to get points for. I'd say it's a big risk. Plus the tool isn't too good with FBs compared to other positions because my sample size of data is a lot smaller. So don't read too much into a high TVR here.

Yeah I agree that is why I asked him whether he actually ran and threw to the fullback. If you are using him strictly as a blocker then it would not be worth it surely.

But if you are drafting him with the intent of using him as basically an RB2 that lines up at fullback, it doesn't really matter how good his blocking or what his OVR says. If you set the type to "runner-receiver" it doesn't weigh blocking as heavily on the OVR either. But even if it's low I'm not sure it would matter.

You could also just leave him as a RB and not even convert him also (but just play him at fullback)

burth179, Yeah I don't normally throw to the FB. I mainly use them in short yardage situations. I agree, I could just leave him as RB and not even convert him. Thanks again for your insight.

Re: Scouting Tool for Madden 17 CFM

Best thing to come out of this tool for me. UDFA in a 32 team league, which is what he was rated as. The tool had his TVR pretty high though and I needed a TE. I tried to draft him in the 4th but he wasn't available (I hate how multiple times guys who are rated as UDFAs don't show up during the draft. Anyone have a fix for that?)

There's no fix for it, just how madden works unfortunately. Pic didn't work for me.

Re: Scouting Tool for Madden 17 CFM

Have a draft story question...as to what would I put down on the spreadsheet?

SS has struggled in recent weeks and draft stock has sunk to all-time low
