Since this is already implemented in another region and I really liked the idea, here will be our personal thoughts, debates, likes, questions about each season's draft class. So here we go.

Just picked a great 19 years old OL Lucian Racu (used to be Jarvis Cole) with 50 strength, 44.4 INT, 39.6 TW and 5* Talent thinking he will be my starting OT very soon.
He was not my 1st pick, he was my 2nd, but i like him even more now

Let's see what happens in round 2, tonight. So good luck to all

Your OL was my second-rated OL and number two overall for me (because I was hoping to add a good OL prospect, I ranked my top three as OLs and still didn't get any).

Got my seventh pick, a pretty solid DT/NT: 49.8 str and 44.7 spd, both red. 43.5 TW and 4*EXP at 20 years old means I don't need to rush him in to get playing time. And Brick Wall trait to boot. (For those scoring at home, he used to be Maha Thong-oon)

He has strong arm trait. Seems a waste sticking him at OL when he was meant to be a QB. But he isnt better than what I have in the QB position

Like you, my top 3 were also OL, al 3 gone in the first round, Buzi got my nr. 3 and Marinarul got my nr. 1.
I for one, know he's name. He was my 7th draft choice actually.
I cut out all of the 32 players selected and it's funny, because from all my 25 picks sorted, only 12 are gone in the first round. That's a good thing
Feeling very good about round 2 tonight, my list has only 21 players this time and for sure i will get one of them, but i hope it will be someone in my top 5

Yeah. He is pretty good Butch for the QB position, not a good idea trying to switch him to OL. He has great INT & TW for OL, but you need to train him at blocking, footwork & positioning and that will take some seasons. We are talking about 3 major skills set. Also his strength is at 40.4 (no cap, yellow, red). My oppinion is to keep him as QB, 2nd or 3rd string, because he will be a great QB after a few seasons, with great INT and also with that high TW he will grow very fast.
If you ever want to make a trick like this, try and draft TEs or FBs and switch them to OLs. Most of them already have blocking & position pretty high and all you will need is footwork. But nobody from this class.

Sorry for the confusion, but I was responding to Radu's OL pick. I generally don't like drafting QBs because they are almost never fast enough to avoid getting sacked all of the time. More often, you need to find a LB w/ 50 Spd (and maybe track star) and high intelligence and talent and train them up to be a star QB.

I can't believe I got my #1 pick,Cristobal Lozano, picking mid-pack.
50STR/49.6SP/50INT. He will be playing LB for me for quite some time. Although reading this thread has me thinking about a switch to QB.
Only 18 of my top 30 taken in round 1. Should get someone useful in round 2.

Yeah. He's a great one with those physicalls and perfect INT, but because of his age, he was not in my top 10. (12th choice).
Yes, it could work, he has vision & positioning already, all he needs is passing (some footwork & carrying after).
But, he is to perfect of a LB and has already good LB skills, why do you want to switch him? Most managers go crazy about this 50/50 players as DL and LB (check the TM on the highest bidded player right now and you will see). You have a jam on your hands, so my oppinion is to keep him as LB and he will be your future franchise player for the next 10 season.

Yeah,
Another good night. This time i picked my 1st choice with the 25th pick.
Another OL Tudor Brancu (used to be Jitu Faria). It wasn't that hard to get him considering that he is 22 years old. Didn't had luck on the strength part with only 47.6 (instant red, i was expenting this), but his 42.8 INT, 43.6 TW and Pass Blocker trait do the trick.

Let's see what scraps are left for round 3 tonight , instant TM
