Seeing future draft classes

Since they all are pre made, is there any shot at this?

prospects rise and drop from one year to the next, but say there was a safety prospect that was worth taking in the first this year, but the team thinking about picking him also needed help, at let's say WR.

This WR class is pretty deep, and next years class, Eric Berry who is a stud, same as Mays, have pretty much no shot at falling off the map, the team could have thier eyes on them..

Plans change, players change, but is it possible to see future classes, so one could know what is coming up after the current year?

IRL, you have a pretty good idea who the studs will be, and if you were to draft a QB in the top 15, and the following year suck it up again, but this time, there was a prospect like Vick (great speed, strong arm) well the player should be screwed because how are you going to move that contract in the second year, when they should of been aware of the prospect before?

hope this made sense, and wondering if it's doable

Re: Seeing future draft classes

I think the best way to solve this is to be able to make the draft classes huge, then when the season ends some of those players you were scouting DON'T declare themselves eligible for the draft. they go back to school for their senior years. Those players should be then added to whatever the next years draft class is, and if you had been scouting them, you can choose to continue following them or stop and still retain the knowledge you had.

I think this would fix the problem you speak of, and I agree that it's a problem

that's a great start

but wish there was a way to see the full 4 years

don't remember which college b ball game, but you could scout freshman in highschool

if they implement that into madden, and you begin scouting a fresh or soph. he could fall off and you wasted your time, or this gives the player a really good advantage in the later rounds..

and it makes who you have as your scouts/coaches matter, because how accurate the reports are, depends on the rating of who is doing the scouting

That would be a good idea. It could show college juniors and seniors, and only some of the juniors would declare for the draft. So they will be there next year as seniors.

Re: Seeing future draft classes

They won't include this in the game, but it is a great idea to be able to see future draft classes. That was one of my only complaints about Head Coach 09.

Re: Seeing future draft classes

if you implement the entire college rosters you would need the xbox pulse/720/whatever to store that kind of info, but then you could have your scouts suggest who you follow, OR, they follow who they think is good and you have to deal with that... when hiring staff, you need to hire good scouts.

Would love to see this. For isntance, michael crabtree has been in people's sights as a top receiver for a couple years now. Brian brohm was looked at as a possibility coming out a year before he did and was watched all season long. Scouts are watching Tebow even though he will never be successful as an NFL QB and were watching him this whole season.

With these pre created classes you could pretty easily have like two or three slots set up for draft classes. A current one, a next year one and maybe even a year after that one.

With each of the created classes you could have possible discussion about them for when they are in the year after next slot. Maybe discussion for more of the players once they move up into the next year slot. You could then have even more when they are in the current slot.

Some of this could include rumors about players declaring early followed by them deciding to if they are in the current class or deciding not to if they are in the next class. It could include discussion about players who are seen as not ready to declare and then them suprising people by actually declaring like slaton or I think there were a couple hawii receivers in that situation. There are probably more examples.

Now, this next part is something that would be completely unlike EA and probably will never happen but that doesn't mean we can't hope, right. They could actually record more commentary than is shown for each class. They could then just randomly choose bits and pieces of that commentary to show each season. This, along with random names, schools, comparisons, and to some extent potential could really add to the replayability while also adding a lot of depth to the presentation in franchise. This way you wouldn't be able to identify any of the classes by any of these things nearly as easily.

Re: Seeing future draft classes

Valid point i'd like to be able to plan ahead, if there is an elite LB coming out i'd rather wait a year and get him later. Oh and guys PLEASE sort out the names of the draftees some of them are awful.
