I wish I could disagree with you... I really do.

However, I cannot.

Well played, sir.

I'd go a step further and suggest that I should be able to scout certain players at different schools during the regular season. Once the off-season begins, I should be able to watch highlights of these scouted players that my scouts created. I think this will help get the gamer more in tune to the players in the upcoming draft.

So, say, in week 13 of the NFL season, I send a scout to go check a top QB playing for USC in a game against...OSU. Sometime in the off-season, when I'm trying to create my draftboard, I should be able to see actual highlights from that game (since EA has the college football license, this shouldn't be an issue).

I think this will help a lot more, because as it stands now, we get three lines of info like "very versatile" or "hits like Derrick Brooks." But that doesn't give me any true insight. I'd like to actually see how he cuts, see how he blocks, see how he tackles. See his speed, see his quickness, etc.

I want to feel like I'm actually scouting players.
I've called for something similar before.

2K sports did it with the College Hoops show in their CH2K8. (i.e. put highlights of games that were only simmed by the computer)

Technically it can be done.

Re: The Draft - Everything EA Needs To Know

This is a great idea...someway EA needs to think of a way to freshen up Madden drafts.

Why is it considered a possible lockout, because the CBA expires?

Yeah. We already know there will be an uncapped year (that in itself will be interesting) but if nothing is decided after that they'll probably be a lockout. None of the dev team have commented on what that would mean for Madden.

Re: The Draft - Everything EA Needs To Know

So they'll just release another Madden with an all new "Lock Out Mode" where you get to play as either Goodell or Demaurice Smith and right the ship. It'll sell millions.....
