Abdullah would've been my starter. :cry:

I almost took him, but my starting RG is in the high 60s. Gotta think of my new running game first.

TBD. We might need to finish FA before we advance to prevent the CPU from auto-filling rosters from the pool. We're discussing it now.

Im thinking it will auto-fill anyways up to 75 for each team. Didn't we have to make cuts at each stage last preseason?

i really hope connected careers is better in 2014 the system could be amazing they just need to fix the bugs in there new project and prepare better next year and realize wut they messed up on and correct it and it would be so much mroe fun. but unless they have another company going against them they can just do whatever they want and keep it how it is

It might not auto-fill all the way to 53, but I do think it would to at least meet the position minimums in order to sim the unplayed preseason games.

FA and Preseason Advance Schedule

Monday 10:30AM EST: FA Round 1 Group #2 (currently phase)
Monday 7:00PM EST: FA Round 1 Group #3
Monday 11:00PM EST: FA Round 1 Group #4
Tuesday 10:00AM EST: FA Round 2 1-16 (switching to two groups of 16)
Tuesday 3:00PM EST: FA Round 2 17-32
Tuesday 7:00PM EST: FA Round 3 17-32 (we'll reverse the order for round 3)
Tuesday 8:00PM EST FA Round 3 1-16
Tuesday 9:00PM EST: Free Agency OPEN (after this, it's free-for-all)
Tuesday 10:30PM EST: Advance to preseason Week 2
Wednesday Night: Advance to preseason Week 3
Friday Afternoon: Advance to preseason Week 4
Saturday Morning: Advance to Regular Season

I realize not all the times are even, but we're trying to get both FA and the preseason done without dragging on too much. Hopefully knowing exactly when your FA group is up will also help people out in scheduling.

Any issues with this?

Right. Two rounds of 1-32 and then one round of 32-1 seems like a good balance. Can't let Tanabeo sign everyone. :D

Good idea. I'd encourage everyone to do this.

If you're going to be out of town (as I'm sure some will be) please set your team to auto before you go. We'll switch it back off for the regular season obviously.

Word.

This kind of post really needs to stop. Everyone on the committee is busy and we get to the deals as quickly as we can. Posting stuff like this doesn't make the process any faster, no matter how many question marks you attach to it. Sorry to single you out Man2008, since you're not the only one who does it, but it's really not helpful.

I'll be making no such predictions after last year, but I think a little balance will go a long way for me. Looking forward to the season starting w/ these new guys.

Thanks

Oh, sure, I'll jump in on this too...

Round 1: RB Aerion Boudreaux, 78 Overall
99 Speed! Time to figure out how to run the ball! I used him in a practice already and I'm already seeing the difference with a back who can make it around the edge. Mostly a Sproles type back now, but has a high carry and even his powerback stats (stiff arm, trucking) are in the 70s. Superstar development trait will help here.

Round 2: OLB Kalik Turner, 76 Overall
Mostly a need pick with Aaron Mabin leaving and my current starting sitting at 69 OVR. 80+ block shedding and tackle are his highlights, so pretty average across the board, but again another Superstar development player so hopefully I can boost him to a capable player quickly. Another immediate starter for my team.

Round 3: RT Jeff Ross, 81 Overall
With three RTs on my roster, I didn't need Ross but he was best available and at 81 OVR he's better than all my other RT I had already (at least by OVR). His pass and run block attributes are only 77, but looking at another Superstar development player so he'll start to get those much-needed reps. High strength and impact blocking already, which is good because strength is expensive and impact blocking I hate sinking XP into. **If you drafted RG Cane, I would love to swap!**

Round 4: FB Okoye Aristotle, 77 Overall
I would be lying if I didn't say I didn't draft this guy mostly for his name. He does have Quick development and he's only the 2nd FB on my team (and my current starter is on the last year of his deal), so I'm pretty happy with the pick. Only 70 run block, but high trucking and decent catching for a FB. Might be my 4th starter from this draft class.

Round 4: RE Javia General, 79 Overall
Another best available pick that worked out for me. I don't know where I'll fit him in with Coples (last year's rookie) as my main DE backup but he'll get some time for sure. Very average end stats: 73 power moves, 61 block shed, 68 pursuit, but another Quick development guy, so here's hoping.

Round 4: WR Aaron Graham, 65 Overall
Here I just decided to draft WRs in hope to finding a gem. Whiffed here. 87 release, 86 speed, 81 catch in traffic, 71 catch, so could be worse.

Round 5: WR Levi Watson, 66 Overall
6'4", 232 pounds. My dumpster diving in WR paid off a bit here. 74 catch, 86 catch in traffic, 89 spectacular catch, 75 route running, 91 release, 99 jump, 87 speed. Don't mind if I do! Will slide in as my #4 WR right away. Once I boost that catch, he might move up further. Stephen Hill already dropped 2 wide open catches in practice, so might be sooner rather than later we see Watson.

Round 6: WR Tyree Brown, 58 Overall
I wasn't kidding about drafting all WRs and hoping for a gem. Whiffed here too.

Round 7: WR Brandon Harris (UConn alum!), 60 Overall
96 speed, will be returning kicks and punts. Fairly poor receiving attributes though. 76 catch, 68 catch in traffic, 79 route running, 71 release. Definitely a special teamer.


Dang...well SOMEBODY sure referenced the draft sheet excel file!! Quite a good haul you got there...

I used that excel file to bump up some players I already planned on drafting to the top of the list lol. That WR I got was #2 on my list, and the LT was #1 (at their respective positions...I wasn't sure who I was gonna draft where).

Yeah, I admittedly abused that thing right after my 1st pick. I knew Boudreaux was my #1 choice, but everyone else was definitely because of that sheet. Hey, with the 9th worst team in the league, I had to avoid any busts in the draft.
