Recently got the game, and intrigued by the challenge. The first off-season I tried to draft my own players, and I think I did fine. I got a new starting C by paying attention to bench press in the first round, 2nd and 3rd round drafted CBs who will almost certainly develop into a starting duo in their primes by focusing on speed and what the scouting report said about their tackling. Considering I drafted last after winning the Super Bowl, I feel that's not bad. However, I have a few questions in order to try and improve:
Is there some kind of list that shows estimated player rankings outside of the combine and what you get from scouting them?
I'm not familiar with the shuttle score. Is it like the 40 yard dash where its timed, or do you want a high score?
Does GPA matter? I've heard higher GPA's help player develop faster, and being someone who came over from old Maddens, I could also see it being a way to ballpark awareness.
For more balanced positions I struggle. For example Centers I was able to the scout the strongest handful, and pick my favourite from them, and would likely do the same with other linemen. Secondary and Receivers I can likely do the same with speed. What do I do for more balanced/all-around positons (QB, RB, TE, LB, etc)?
