That team is pretty good.. If I were you, I'd take Chris Long and Glenn Dorsey. With #23 and #37, go for a WR and a Linebacker.

You got rid of Brodrick Bunkley?!?!

And at this rate, you'll have a 6700 rep by the time you have 100 posts!

Nice work!

Nice team! You do need a wide out.

Well I don't think that SS is an important enough position to take at 1 or 2, but I would look at one later. I would definitely take Glen Dorsey with one of the first 2 picks. I would even maybe take a look at DMC, he would be a beast on Madden and Westbrook will be getting old soon.

what he said, get Dline! kearse is old, and you have no second DT. Howd you get those picks anyway?

This is Madden, Kearse will play every down and never drop in speed for another five seasons. He needs a DT, but DE is set.

Trade one of those later picks for a WR. Try for Roy Williams or something.

Once again, it's Madden, go for Calvin Johnson, he'll be a 99 overall in no time.

Also, your avatar terrifies me.

With #1, I'd take Glenn Dorsey. #2 I'd take Run DMC, like you said. At #23, take Limas Sweed. If you like fast guys take Devin Thomas. With 37, pick Tyrell Johnson and let him take over for Considine.

Strictly my opinion though.

GERMAN MADDEN LEAGUE, damn i didnt see that...

well id actually try to get Jake Long, there are tons of good RBs out there. the other pick Chris or Dorsey, depends on what u do. If u play madden, u have to put the better DE at the LE cause the get way more sacks ;)

ich bin mir nicht sicher ob ihr die erste deutsche maddenliga seit , jedoch läuft unsere auch seit ungefähr 7 jahren.

wie auch immer : ich würde stur BPA picken , um so das talentlevel auf einem hohen niveau zu halten :) einer davon sollte dann schon ein safety sein

naja es gibt halt positionen die in madden eigentlich egal sind. WR kannste eigentlich mit allen gut umgehen, solang er schnell is und gut fangen kann. AWR gibt viel zu viele OVR Punkte. CBs, Safetys sind schwerer zu finden weil AWR da sehr wichtig ist

Anywho.

Go with Dorsey and Rivers #1 and #2. Go with Sweed, Thomas or Jordyzzzzz Nelson with #23 AND #37, you need upgrades and depth at the wideout position. If you don't have a great returnman, and it doesn't appear that you do, go for Jackson at #37.

That draft would get you at least 2, probably 3 starters and maybe a starting return guy.

go dorsey with chris long then get mayo and then the best remaining WR

ich fahre aber mit reinen speed CB am besten . nach ein paar jahren franchise-mode explodieren die overallwerte sowieso , da fängst du dir schnell ne bombe mit einem CB unter 95 speed ein :)
die safeties steigen bei mir stets in den special teams , ich bekomme immer einen netten gegenwert nach 1-2 jahre special teams und ein paar einsätze als 5. CB .

TE sind richtig hart zu finden und auch die RBs kann man schnell austauschen. overallwerte bei OLinern sind relativ belanglos , da spielen die slider ne größere rolle ( so zumindest meine erfahrung ) . also ich würde dem maddenguru da oben eine art BPA strategie empfehlen , oder die DLine aufpolstern :)

(übrigens ist es immer noch ein jammer das man ohne großen umstand nicht gescheit rotieren lassen kann , das würde den sinn für mehr DEs auch verstärken)

I'd wait on a RB. Seriously, nab Ray Rice in round 2, and your team is set. I'd pick Long and Eric Foster picks 1 and 2, but that's just me

Dorsey and Gholston with first 2 picks

Best LB or CB with 23


Best RB with 37

German just looks like you have really bad typing/spelling skills. A couple of the words stand out though like franchise mode, CB, DLINE crap like that. Me, when Im playing madden I like speed especially at RB, WR and CB.

You're weakest at D-Tack and OLB, so I'd take Dorsey and Mayo at the top (try to trade down from #2 a bit and pick up picks). After that, you're weak at WR, so take Sweed at 23 unless something crazy happens and a Top 15 talent is available, or someone you like a lot more. Then at 37, address your S spot, Dawkins is old, and Considine sucks. With Westbrook, you have no need for an early RB and you can get a good backup later in this deep RB class.

Personally I'd go Jake Long and Glenn Dorsey or a DE (Gholston/Long) with the first 2 picks. (How the hell you got the 1st and second picks I have no idea) Just because your line will be anchored for years to come lets face it Runyan (sp?) is old and so is Thomas so you have a keen gift that I wouldn't blow. Then Devin Thomas or Limus Sweed with your next pick. Then Matt Forte or Chris Johnson (I forget how long Madden allows RBs to survive) or a DE/OLB like Groves.

People have been coming up to me lately saying.... Hey Mike, Is their anyway I could trade my 32nd overall pick for the 1st overall.... My response is simple... Just turn off the trade deadline, and BEFORE you simulate any wild card games just make the trade... Some times I can trade my 32nd overall pick for someone elses 1st 2nd and 3rd round pick..... Your Welcome

would you Pick Gholston or Dorsey on Position 1 with this Depth Charts ?
Or would you Pick both of them - and let go Run DMC away ?

Definitely get Dorsey and probably McFadden. Looks like you could do with help at WR and LB as well.

WR has little going for it, maybe Dexter Jackson is useful with his speed (especially in madden) but LB's is pretty limited talent-wise.

A Tradeoffer that received me .....

to Philly: A. J. Hawk (Overall 91)
for the 2nd Overallpick ?

Is that a fair deal ?
What do you think about A.J. Hawk ?
Is he better than Vernon Gholston ?

if you're playing a 4-3, I'd do that in a heartbeat. A 3-4 and I have to really think about it. But I'd do it. I am a Hawk fan, but he's proven stuff in the NFL already. But in Madden, he will be slower than Gholston... interesting decision

I'd take Hawk, he's a beast on Madden and I wouldn't be worried about his speed. He is very quick on Madden (87ish) but obviously I don't know what Gholston's will be like.

for my likes , i hate to play with RBs that are too fast.
i do a much better job , hitting the hole and waiting for the blocks to develop with a 88 ish speed Guy. most running plays in madden , that are designed to go far away from the OTs are doomed from the beginning. so i prefer RBs with good carrying and breaktackle stats.
My WRs are always big and good leapers , so i kill the defense through the middle. (its all about ball control and killing the clock :D )
iam with you with the CBs , in madden there speed is much more important than awareness , i think. so there are pretty raw speedish rookies who shut down and good veterans with good awareness getting toasted by bombs again and again.

As said before, Hawk is a Beast in Madden barring he doesnt get any injuries. Whenever I decide to do a fantasy draft before starting a franchise I always pick up Hawk. He usually progresses well too. I think the last time I played Madden I simulated a few seasons out and Hawk won the Defensive Player of the year two consecutive years in a row. It seems everytime I simulate it out he ends up doing well in one way or another.

I would take the Hawk trade and maybe try to get something else with it. Maybe the Person offering Hawk would give way with a draft pick. Never hurts to try and get more. But Hawk would be a great addition and would probably have a quicker effect on the team than Gholston, Rivers, or Mayo.

Your first pick should definantly be spent on Dorsey. You need a DT more than anything. The DT class wasnt as deep as the WR class and you can snag a WR in round 2 or possibly 3. WR prospects in Madden tend to make more of a contribution early than they do in real life. Most Likely you can grab a good WR in the second and not have to worry about it.

If the Hawk Trade falls through I would attempt to trade back a little rather than make a reach on LB at the #2 pick. Grab Rivers or Mayo with that second First round pick.

I wouldnt even think RB in this draft. Westbrook has many good years left in Madden so spending you picks on RB would be a waste. That is unless you are wanting to use Westbrook to barter future trades.

So to give a quick recap
#1 Dorsey
#2 trade for hawk or trade back to draft Rivers or Mayo
#23 WR
#37 WR or FS in order to give either more depth at WR or more Depth at FS. Get best player available at the two positions.

Later with other draft picks give Depth to you Dline and DB. Remember that Off the field troubles dont matter in madden... so you don't have to worry about stuff like that. =) But you will have to draft multiple WR in this draft since you traded off Holmes. Just remember though....Mediocre Receivers can do well in madden with a good QB.

Are the ratings based off of Madden 09 ratings?

Take Gholston by far!

Put Gholston at DE and he is a monster. He will be flirting with 90 overall as a rookie.

On that game he has strength of Kampman and Mario Williams with the speed of Jason Taylor.
