    As we are finding some new, or not so new managers, and we are just jumped into a new version, would be nice to have a Post similar to the one we have in the BLB Forum already.

    Please feel free to post your questions / investigations, so we can help / give our opinion!

    Not sure if this is kind of Info your looking for or not. In S.P. games I have noticed that waiting till 3rd & 4th rd you can get very good DL & LB drafted in these spots. Can't say if that will be true in MP or not as AI seems to me first 2 rds to draft much more skilled players, OL, & DB's Considering we have teams the AI will be drafting for and those GM that won't show come draft time. You might have better luck drafting LB & DL come late 3rd and 4th rounds. Other players may see different draft patterns than I am seeing if so then this theory holds no water.

      Any queries in this post will be more than welcome.

      The players available in late rounds are directly correlated to the quality of the Drafters. In MP you will find the best players going early in the Draft, is a completely different experience than in SP. More challenging and you donīt know how the other GMs are thinking.

      Hope this helps.

        What I was thinking is will see the 12 Open teams with no GM yet and inactive GM's go more Skill players early. Thus maybe Allowing certain positions having a better chance of getting good player mid rds. I realize a GM that shows up for draft and needs a SLB with a outstanding one available may pounce on the guy early.

          Also take into an account that Scouts see players in different ways, your scout might see a player as a stud and mine scouts the same player as a Roster filler.

            I hate when they see that big a difference in a player Stud vs a roster filler. that sounds like a 85 stud 47 roster filler lol. I'd hope they see it more like 85 stud 73 Solid Starter.

              Did you try to "Shop" the player and see what teams are interested the most? Are those players salaries high??
              I also would say the Pool of players is a lot better in FOF8 than it was in FOF7, so the market for 50+ rated players is lower.
              will do and forgot all about the shop feature. Thanks again!

                You are welcome! I hope you can swing those players to other teams!

                  For future reference:

                  Every year, all players are tested in the combine events. Front Office Football does this because you don’t have actual tape to watch, as real professional coaches have.
                  Along with scouted player ratings and statistics, combine numbers are a primary tool for evaluating players.
                  Combine results correlate to the player ratings. This is not an exact relationship, but it is a strong one. When comparing players to each other using combine numbers, the comparisons are much more valid within a position group. Note that some skills are reflected in more than one test.
                  The following tests are given to players in Front Office Football:
                  The 40-Yard Dash.
                  • Quarterbacks - their desire and ability to run the ball.
                  • Backs - breakaway speed and speed in getting to the outside.
                  • Receivers - their big-play ability and their pass-catching ability.
                  • Offensive Linemen - their run-blocking ability.
                  • Punters - their punt distance.
                  • Kickers - their kickoff distance.
                  • Defensive Front - their pass rush technique.
                  • Defensive Backs - zone defense and man-to-man defense.

                  The Solecismic Intelligence Test.
                  • All Players - relates to their intelligence.
                  • Quarterbacks - avoid interceptions, read defenses and sense the rush.
                  • Backs - their ability to find an open hole in the defense and their route-running ability.
                  • Receivers - their route-running ability and ability to adjust to a bad throw.
                  • Punters - their ability to put the ball inside the 20.
                  • Kickers - their field-goal accuracy.
                  • Defensive Players - diagnosing the offense.

                  The Bench Press.
                  • Quarterbacks - throwing long and deep passes.
                  • Backs - their power on inside runs and their third-down running.
                  • Tight Ends - their blocking strength.
                  • Wide Receivers - their courage over the middle.
                  • Offensive Linemen - their pass-blocking strength.
                  • Punters - their ability to keep a punt from being returned.
                  • Kickers - touchback ability and field-goal distance.
                  • Defensive Front - pass rush strength and hard hitting.
                  • Defensive Backs - bump-and-run defense and hard hitting.

                  The Agility Drill (sometimes known as a cone drill).
                  • Quarterbacks - throwing short passes and screens.
                  • Backs - their elusiveness, their pass-catching ability and third-down running.
                  • Receivers - their pass-catching ability.
                  • Offensive Linemen - their pass-blocking technique.
                  • Defensive Players - their run defense and their bump-and-run defense.

                  The Broad Jump.
                  • Quarterbacks - throwing medium-distance passes and their two-minute offense.
                  • Running Backs - their third-down running ability and their endurance.
                  • Fullbacks - their third-down running ability and their run blocking.
                  • Tight Ends - their third-down receiving and run blocking abilities.
                  • Wide Receivers - their punt return and kick return abilities.
                  • Offensive Linemen - their endurance.
                  • Kickers - their field-goal distance.
                  • Defensive Linemen - their endurance.
                  • Linebackers - bump-and-run defense and man-to-man defense.
                  • Defensive Backs - their punt return and kick return abilities.

                  A Position-Specific Drill.
                  • Quarterbacks - their throwing accuracy and timing.
                  • Backs - their blitz-pickup ability and their route-running skill.
                  • Receivers - their ability to catch what's thrown in their direction and adjust to a bad throw.
                  • Linebackers - zone defense and intercepting skills.
                  • Defensive Backs - zone defense and intercepting skills.

                  Not all positions have a position-specific drill and not all tests are meaningful for every position.

                      Feel free to populate the thread with questions / articles / opinions. Even the veteran players refer themselves back to basics more often than not.
