Meh, and I hate to lose but don't want to step down from the amazing competition we have in fire. I figure, find out where you're at by doing your best, working on your roster, and if I suck, I get a good draft pick. No biggie. lol

Speaking of draft picks..

Round 1, pick 19:
Willis Hunter, formerly Naasir Miturski
21 year old
5 star talent
50 speed
Sure Tackler trait.

Average TW and INT, but he's already a 3.5 star player so development should still come along fast enough. I plan on cutting 4 of my 6 CB's next offseason, so he will slide into my CB2 position as a starter next year. This season, he'll be a depth piece while training. Not a bad pickup on the back half of the draft round.

There was a 3 star RB I wanted, but guess someone scouted him and took him earlier in the draft. Kudos to whoever that was, he's a project, but should be a hell of a back one day.

2nd round will have to be considered a bust. Stanislav Villasenor FB has potential but not what we are looking for

Round 2, pick 51
B.J. Sturn (formerly Avinesh Moala)
5 star CB
20 years old
50 speed
Long Reach trait.

Looks like the secondary for next season is pretty much set now. Wasn't looking for 2 CBs in this draft, but I got two young guys who should have very productive careers.

I’ve not done as bad as I thought I would in the draft. I have picked up a couple of nice prospects. Had to change the position of the first rounder and the second rounder is a gamble since his physicals are not maxed out yet, but both are solid prospects. Best draft I have had in a few seasons!

It looks like my 2nd round pick could be a bust too. SF Simon Boldewijn (Now Clemente Stoddard) has Track Star but his speed is red-capped at 45.3. Even with the bonus he's easily the slowest player in my secondary. The early hope is that his strength is decent and maybe he could be a servicable player.

You never know. I have had 3 star talent without elite STR, SPD or AGL outperform my 50 STR, 50 SPD, 50 INT 5 star talents on a regular basis. Maybe you can switch his position too. Hopefully he is not a total loss, but that definitely happens sometimes. Good luck with his development.

Yea I love this aspect of games like this so I'm likely gonna try to mold him into something. Heck with his 17.8 block, 15.6 catch and 42TW I wouldn't even rule out TE.

Looks like Tennessee went 1 for three in the draft. Pick number 3 Harithik Vish WR not terrible but nothing special and with the receivers we already have e will probably end up on the trading block.
