I don't get how the projected round and pick # works in this game. Is it predetermined before the season? The last few weeks I've been scouting some players at positions I need and found what I think are some hidden gems, but their stock doesn't rise.

In NCAA recruiting, players rise up and down depending on your scouting. Makes it easier to see who will be busts or not. Hell, I'm thinking of drafting a projected 3rd rounder with my 7th overall pick based on his stats that I've scouted.


There is no rhyme or reason to it. It is a complete waste of time to even look at the projected draft # imo.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

TimeZone: PST
Online: Everyday Mon-Sun 9:30PM - 2:00AM (Have to wait till wife & kids are in bed before I can fire up the X360)


Man, not available until 9:30pm PST? That's going to be brutal on the east coasters. You're welcome to join, but you might have some trouble scheduling your games.

East coasters? That is going to be brutal for those of us in CST too. I know there is no way I'd ever get a game in with him.

Gotcha. Might take my guy with the 7th pick then just to blow the fake twitters (twitterers?) mind. And also because he has great stats of course.

Haha, well yeah.. I was at least trying to give the most extreme examples. I'm CST also, and I'd probably only be able to make that timeframe on Friday or Saturday. Like I said, he's welcome to join, but I could foresee some instances where I might have to allow an opponent to play his CPU.

Oh for sure that is how you should do it. Stats are all that matters, the projections are just there to fill space.

lol ya completely understand. I don't see a lot of east coasters hopping on at 12:30 at night during the week to get a game in. Heck I don't remember the last time I stayed up that late *old man* :cry:

If anybody has a backup TE or HB they'd like to deal for a 4th or 5th round pick, I might be absent from the draft and am looking to shop those picks.

It definitely wouldn't be a forced sim. I've always tried to follow the logic that whoever made the greater effort or had the larger availability deserves to play the CPU in those instances. And it would be tough to make a case that only being available after midnight for the majority of our players is a "reasonable effort". This isn't a knock on the guy, as I 100% understand his situation (wife and kids).

But at that point, it might just be wise to ask your wife's "permission" to play in a Madden league. It's not like this is a game that requires you to be on for hours at a time. Games are at set times and can be scheduled 3-4 days in advance. I generally just let my wife know that I have a game scheduled, and she knows that I'm unavailable to help with my daughter during that one hour time period. As with anything, good communication goes a long way.

Also, I'm going to get a final draft time hammered out tonight, guys. It's taking a little longer than expected because some of the responses I've gotten back for this most recent PM conflict with what the person told me in the first PM. Some people who were unavailable Sunday @ 7PM are all of a sudden available, and vice versa. I'm just going to tally the most recent numbers and see what we get. Doesn't speak much for consistency though, lol.

EDIT - All right, I've received enough responses to make a ruling. Offering times on Monday didn't help at all. It may seem surprising, but I've already got 9 people who would not be able to make Monday at all, and 2 more who wouldn't be able to make the most popular time that day. So, I would say after reasonably exhaustive research, Sunday @ 7PM EST is the time the most people can make. I apologize to those who can't make it that day. There just isn't a better way to do it. Of course, again, EA could have alleviated some of this aggravation just by making the draft system as functional as it was in Madden 12. I'm not sure how they figure that removing being able to set up a draft board in advance and removing the ability to draft from the website made for a better game. But yeah...EA is a horrible developer. Anyway...

Madden 13 Gentlemen's League Draft - Sunday, March 31st at 7PM EST!


*Trades submitted after 2PM EST on 3/31 will not be reviewed until after the draft. Meaning, if you have a trade involving a draft pick, get it in before 2PM EST on draft day.

Just want to let everyone know I'm trying to read and respond to PMs, but depending on when I go out of town it is hard to respond to everything.

I'd like to work out pre-draft trades, but more than likely I'll probably just have to pick who I pick and then try to make some moves after the draft.

Im really glad to see the cowboys are keeping romo. I know alot of people think he sucks. Which i will admit he does choke at times. But his offensive line has never really helped the guy out that much.

So is there a way to set a draft board or something so the CPU can draft people for you? I believe I'll be at work during the draft. :( sucks cause I found some really good backups and possible starters for me.

For anyone that I am in trade discussions with, who I end up trading with might come down to whoever comes to me first with a final offer. I'm not going to wait until the 2 PM deadline on Sunday for you to field offers on your guys, then have my trade rejected with no chance to revise it. If you want any of my guys, I would like to come to an agreement sometime tonight so we have a chance to revise the trade if it gets rejected.

For those of you who won't be able to make it to the draft, I have some starting quality players I would trade for your picks. I would like to agree to deals sometime tonight if possible.

Nope. EA removed that feature from the game because it's their goal to ruin everything that is good and make each game as shitty as possible, lol.

I think he's a pretty good QB. I'd trade Josh Freeman for him anyday. But my hang up is the money.

Also, why do QBs want to always be the highest payed player in history? They know its only going to last till the next big QB contract. (What? One season at most?) Why not take less money and enable the team to get better players for you to work with? Look at Flacco. He was the highest paid for like a week and they lost a lot of players because of it

That's actually a common misconception. Flacco's 2013 cap number is only $6.8M. His 2014 and 2015 numbers are slightly under $15M. The deal is expected to be restructured after that because his number inflates to nearly $30M in 2016. Baltimore lost players because they weren't willing to overpay for guys they didn't need.

I have a reason for this! I originally thought I would be having a late Easter dinner with family. It changed, and is now a lunch, so I can make both times!

We've seen it. I have voted. I am sure you'll see a response soon. Same with the Ravens/Colts trade.
