Draft strategy

Whatís your strategy for trying to land guys that you scouted that you discovered have a higher grade after scouting? If a guy was initially a 3rd round grade and you scout him and it reveals he has a first round grade, is there any chance heíll be available late 2nd round? Iím trying to put my draft board together tonight and I donít want to draft anyone too early but I donít want to wait too long and miss out either

If you are drafting against the computer, he will be there in the 2nd. 3rd you pushing it. But it also depends on how they draft. On my last draft, I was getting 70+ rated hidden superstar 1st round graded people all the way to the 4th round. It was just one of those drafts. Cause I have had some with only a few people like that and the rest were meh.

Re: Draft strategy

Something that happened to me

Projected 6th round QB but after scouting put him as a 4th rounder. He had A- Thp, B+ sac, B mac.

Turned out not to be true, has like 87thp, 81sac, 77mac.

Late round guys might not actually meet their letter grades.

Iím glad to hear itís not an exact science. Iím hoping for some unpredictability but at the same time Iíd like to be able to get a general feel when most guys are drafted

Re: Draft strategy

I usually have a rule that I can only reach one round for a guy. If he is projected in the 5th round I will draft him at in the 4th at the earliest. Which anyone outside of the 1st rd I only scout the first 2 attributes to make it a little harder for me.

Actually he met the letter grades perfectly. They're different this year...basically a two level difference (if you count +, -, and straight letter as three distinct levels). So a B+ last year is a B- this year or an A is more like a B+.

Re: Draft strategy

Based on my experience I don't typically see the AI picking greater than 1.5 rounds early. Make sure to take into account whether they're early, mid, or late round graded.

If a player was initially 5L but scouting says they're worth a 3M the latest I'd probably wait would be 4E.
