My question is, how do i take pictures of the drafts classes?
Not sure how i'm gonna do it yet, but I plan to upload the draft class in the scouting tool + pictures of actual players if I can so you can recieve more data.
Awesome, thank you. If you're on XBone, you can double tap the home button and then press Y to take a screengrab. It then puts them in your Game DVR bit and you can share them to OneDrive or a few other storage platforms and download onto other devices from there. Pretty hassle free.

Think the PS4 has something similar, but I don't have a PS4 so not sure of the exact controls or anything.

One thing is that I scout position switching so a handful of players (usually DE to DT or LT/RT switch) may be listed as the other position when I'm drafting. I can switch them back to their actual position before I upload though (though it could cause a few to go to not draft status).
Original position would be good, thank you. I'm not certain actually, but I think the OVR boosts/penalties on draft recap are based on other teams' schemes, not just your own (i.e. the team the player was drafted by). But not certain on that.

Thanks, yea I forgot to mention I had Xbox One, but thankfully this helped.

Since I control all 32 teams, how do u want me to post players, just the ones that says to draft? There might be quite a bit of them.

Edit: I also have the Xbox App so I can download straight from my computer from my game dvr

It sure is lol. Having to use house rules sucks because sometimes knowing you can do something that wouldn't really happen is hard not to do.

Also I reread what I wrote and it kind of sounded like I was attacking you. That was not the intent at all and if it came off that way my bad.

And those 7th rounders that you can flip into 4th or 5th drive me crazy. That logic is just dumb.

In terms of screenshots of players, I'm not that fussed in all honesty, as long as you can record their OVR in the spreadsheet alongside their scouting data, that's all I need really.

Alright! So you just want me to attach the file here in the forums when I'm done?

It's all good man, I didn't think you were I was just commenting.

For house rules, I hear ya. Like in that case, maybe instead of taking the 4th or 5th rounder when your trade out of a 7th rounder, do a manual trade with the offering CPU teams for a future 6th or 7th instead instead. That way you can still trade, but it is more realistic in what you are getting in return.

Maybe I should just use that draft value sheet in the future, like the real NFL one that they sort of use. I think Jimmy Johnson created it.
