Rebuilding with draft picks ?

I am wanting to rebuild the bucs franchise. Should I try and load up on 1st and 2nd round picks by trading away the only good players I have or would it be better to load up on late round picks by trading some back ups on my roster? I want mostly A potential guys and I'm just unsure how many A potential guys you can get later in the draft.
Thanks for your help

If you end up with an early first rounder, just trade down a pick or two. If you do it twice, you can pick up two more second rounders and a third probably.

Yea load up on 2nd/3rd round picks, they cost less and you can have gems with "A" potential.

Exactly. You can only keep the old guys if you're sentimental. They just want too much $$$ and their rating for the most part doesn't justify the $$$.

Re: Rebuilding with draft picks ?

I usually always trade my first round pick for later picks.Usually 2nd,3rd and 5th.

You dont really need all A potential players though.As long as you have players that fit the typr players you want at evey position.I won like 3 or 4 Super Bowls with Kyle Orton b4 and he is a B potential.

It depends on if you are using NCAA imported draft classes or the EA custom generated draft classes. If you're using NCAA classes then loading up on 1st/2nd rounders can be helpful, but if you're using the custom EA classes it's better to stock up on 3rd-5th rounders and take advantage of the sleepers/gems.

Yeah there is not a lot of old guys on the bucs team at the moment. Ronde Barber is the only player that is old really. I am using the madden generated classes. What overall rating do 2nd and 3rd round A potential picks have in their first season? Can they come in and contribute right away or will it take a few years to get a good overall rating?

I am assuming first round picks come in at a high overall and can help right away...not sure about that though.
