How they only gave you 4100ish is beyond me, you got a top 5 talent at 5, a top 15 talent at 37, a top 40 talent at 67 and hit on Needs and quality players throughout. Obv we know it wont happen as Cooper continues to move up, but that would be ridiculous.

I understand why it's fun sorta like a fantasy draft in Madden, but I can't tell whats worse. The fact you can make trades so easy that you draft so many players you couldn't even make space on the roster for half of them or the fact that your able to draft round 1 talent all the way into the 3rd round.

The way that game lets players fall is way out of whack with reality sometimes. Has anyone actually had a bad draft?

Not bad per se, cuz you can simply stop midway thru.

But also, even on "real mock" drafts, talent falls, because when you take a consensus, there usally like 40-45 players given rd1 grades, and the same for 2 and 3. Thats why "rd 1 talents fall to 2nd/etc" which just proves they werent really rd 1 talents in the eyes of teams.

That said, the trade offers are pretty ridiculous. They did update the talent value of players recently as tank carradine is now going end of 1st beginning of 2nd instead of lasting to the 3rd, but its not that (if you were using my example of 1st rnders falling) they think Matt elam is a 1st rounder.. their value definetly is guarding him 2nd to 3rd and im not sure what they are basing their values on. If you click on a player it shows you their NFL.com ptofile/value, but thats not the governing factior because higher rated players have gotten worse grades at the same spots.

Things like Ansah falling to the 20s or Lane Johnson into the late teens, even something like Arthur Brown falling to the 3rd seems a little nonsensical. I can understand that there will be guys that fall, but the players they have fall have too many people agreeing on where they will be or are at positions that get reached for all the time. It seems like it uses some kind of value system but also randomly drops a player or two without any kind of logical reason.

The more I think about it though it's the trades that are just laughable. It seems like there are to many offers and they are giving to much in return sometimes. Part of it is also the user, no self respecting GM would actually draft that many players in a draft, but it's also that teams are still more content waiting for someone to fall than trade away picks like this game does.

Agreed the traders are laughable. When i was trying to simulate closer to reality, i would just refuse every trade offer and pick at my spot to see what i could get. Of course after doing that a dozen times or so, almost every draft looks the same.

Yeah that's why I compare it to a Madden draft. It's fun, but the most fun comes when you take advantage of the system and maneuver around to get players that would never be possible in real life.

Whoever made the game software, programed a certain value of each player, at the time the game was made. I don't think he/she has updated the player values. It is just a game after all.

Billy that was true until recently, the values definitely updated recently as tank carradine was lasting into the late 2nd-late 3rd every time before, and is now an end of first/early 2nd every time (rhodes is going higher as well as trufant also, but still. the dropping players is still fairly unrealisic.

See, this is the problem I have. Getting Jones with the 36th pick should be an A, not a B. He's seen as a late first round talent by numerous experts. You got a likely overall number one pick with the 5th selection, you got a late first to early second round pick in the third round, you got a late second to early third round talent in the 5th round....what more could you ask for?
