My 2nd round was DL Ernest Mancham. He is a bit "stupid" (low INT) and "lazy" (low TW) but he is young (19 yo), strong (STR 50) and has Brick Wall trait. Quite OK for a late 2nd round pick.

Yeah since I'm a new team I wanted to get at least one threat in the offense in this draft so that box is checked already. Plus he's 19 so he can be one of my players for a long time and it gives him extra time to make up for his teamwork being a bit lower than what I'd normally want. Very happy with him!


Using my "methodology" Zeki Omer was the best ranked player out of the board. But his speed was an issue for me because it was not 49+. Is he already capped on SPD?


Unfortunately, yes

Isn't TWK really important for a DL?

I picked DL Slavomir Charlton in Round 2. Happy with that.

I also saw the risk with Zeki Omer red capping on speed, but none of the draft pool were perfect. For me it's a question of whether to go for excellent SPD and/or STR, or better INT &TW with OK physicals (hoping they're not capped).

According the manual:

Teamwork is the base factor for training progress calculation. Higher teamwork leads directly to more training progress. Teamwork is also important for Blocking and Tackling in the line or multiplayer tackles.

But with a Brick Wall trait and max STR (which I understand is more important than TW) he is fairly ok.

Jack6 Training has both TW and STR as "A" importance for DL, so yes, TW is important, but so are several things including STR, and Brick Wall for that matter.

It's great to see so many new managers arriving. Good luck everyone! If you have questions, see Jack's Guide in the Rookie Forum, or ask for advice there.
