More Draft: Forgot to Add...and it's cool

Before I take a Madden break -- I forgot to check player ratings for those rookies and since Madden doesn't list where a player was picked on his profile (hopefully that can get added next year) it's hard to see who went where quickly.

However, I did look at roster breakdowns and here's the top rated rookies from the draft below:

  1. SS - Chi - 85 OVR (not sure where he was picked but it was NOT in the first round. The Bears took a LE.)
  2. RE - Oak - 85 (pick #6 overall)
  3. LG - Den - 84 (pick #14 overall)
  4. TE - Minn 83 (NOT 1st round
  5. WR - NYG - 83 (NOT 1st round)
  6. LE - TB - 83 (#2 overall)
  7. LT - Det - 82 (#1 overall)
  8. RG - Chi - 82 (I think this guy went Round 3!)
  9. MLB - Det 82 (Round 2)
  10. C - Den - 82 (Round 2)
  11. LE - Oak 82 (Not first round)
  12. FS - Pitt - 81 (Pick #30)
  13. DT - Mia - 81 (Pick #4)
  14. OLB - Buff - 81 (Pick #7)
  15. SS - NYJ - 79 (Not first round)
  16. WR - Jags - 79 Not first round)
  17. HB - NYJ - 79 (Pick #19)
Everyone else is under 79 to start.

As for the Browns? I was simming -- and didn't scout at all -- merely picked what the generic list said. How'd I do?

Rounds:

  1. HB 75 OVR
  2. SS 41 OVR
  3. CB 52 OVR
  4. OLB 59 OVR
  5. DT 56 OVR
  6. WR 41 OVR
  7. LR 59 OVR
Scouting = important.

Yep, the most ready to play player from that 2010 draft -- was not even taken in Round 1. Freaking. Great. For those scoring at home -- the Bears landed the #1 and #8 immediate impact rookies -- and I guess totally whiffed on their 1st round pick, some LE who is rated a 71. and was drafted #26 overall.

The above should give you a warm tingly feeling of awesomeness.

Bill, being from the Chicago burbs...I can verify that the Bears getting toasted on their 1st round pick is absolutely spot on programming.:)

Two first rounders for Cutler = no brainer
