His last name be mentioned frequently by commentators. This is a huge deal for me deciding to get this game... I can deal with rookies not looking close to real life, but if I make Josh Allan the QB (pretty common last name..) and they never say his name I can't stick with a long franchise mode... after 4-5 years your commentary will be silent because you have a team full of rookies all because EA is too lazy to implement something essential for franchise longevity..
I don't think so but I will check. I created Boar Jackson and Storm Stewart when I first started and their last names were not said. Stewart I know is in and I assume Jackson is also said on generated rookies.

I know the announcers actually saying a rookie's name is a small detail but it's almost a night and day difference in realism inside of Franchise.
So moral of the story is don't edit the name, first or last, if you want the announcer to call them out. You can edit appearance, size, equipment, and attributes and you're fine. I do NOT know if the names are still called if you edit other parts of the first page like; school, position, or handiness. I question it because editing the first name did mess it up. (only 1 trial though)

Having a rookies last name is great but in many ways it limits my scouting options, I will draft a slightly lesser prospect at a position like QB if his last name is Jackson as opposed to a unique/obscure name I know won't be spoken by the commentators.. my best Draftee in madden 17 was a 79 Superstar QB with pick 14 named R.J Printers but I wouldn't draft him in this years mode if I know I can get a lesser player with commentary- immersion is everything for me in this game :/

The only thing that will delete the audio for draft picks with audio is changing the first or last name of a player. You can edit everything else. Create a players do not have audio as you have said.

I can confirm, I moved a CB to HB and his name was still called.
I was able to pluck several rookie FA's with their names called.

Cameron, Gray, Warren, Weaver, Mason, Daniels- all in.
Odd one, I got a WR Bryant but I've not heard his name, just "Wide Receiver"

I've only been able to find a couple threads about this and after I decided to run my own tests. First I'm adding to the names that work list: Parker, Rose, Jones, Rodgers, Freeman, Meyer, Jacobs, Wade. I can confirm that you can edit anything on a player except for their name. What I've noticed is some names get said with more regularity. For example, in about 20 touches I heard the last name "Wade" twice. I heard the name "Jones" 3 out of his first 5 touches. Parker is another name I will hear often, and then you have "Meyer" who I'll hear a little bit more than I do "Wade". If I have "Freeman" as a running back, sometimes they will say "Deveonta Freeman". It's unfortunate that it's like this.

Re: Franchise Commentary - Rookie Names List

In my 4th season meanwhile the following Rookies have their names by the commentators.

Webb, Buchannon, Weaver - I don`t have more playing yet, or they are in the third string where they have less play time.

They say his name if you just created him in the main menu? Neat. I might actually do that.
