The Combine and Franchise Tag for the upcoming off-season
« on: February 02, 2017, 05:01:03 PM »
I mentioned earlier in the season that the Combine would get some minor tweaks, and I have finalized what those tweaks will be.

The format will stay the same (see later example) and what you see in red will be the new features added to reward teams for their earlier scouting trips.




CAROLINA PANTHERS


Linebacker

Fastest:  Reuben Foster, Alabama

Smartest:  Reuben Foster, Alabama

Best Hands:  Reuben Foster, Alabama

My Top 5:
1. Reuben Foster, Alabama As you can see, Foster lived up to the hype we saw earlier in the season, the guy has range, speed, and knows where to go.  Really looked good, but his agent did mention that New Orleans, Chicago, and New England have all requested tape on him as well... might need to reach for him if we really want him.
2. Raekwon McMillan, Ohio State
3. Anthony Walker Jr., Northwestern
4. Zach Cunningham, Vanderbilt
5. Kendell Beckwith, LSU Earlier in the process I had him ranked higher due to his film, but after seeing the guys above him in person, I dropped him down to adjust for that.  He's still good, but his speed just isn't up to par with the others. Good news is we're the only ones to really do much research before the combine, so he may fall to us later in the draft.

The other backers we scouted, I have ranked right around...

8. Ben Boulware, Clemson

10. Ejuan Price, Pittsburgh






So as you can see, scouting players before the combine (during the regular season) will give you more info come combine time to, as a way to reward teams for doing their homework before hand.








As for the Franchise Tag.  When ERFA begins I will release a PDF file with the franchise tag costs for each player.  That number will be CLOSE to the average of the top salaries at the position, but this is a game and its my game, so Im going to round to numbers that I like, so don't get all Math-warrior with me to try to circumvent the price tag.  It is what it is.  The benefit here is that it is a fixed price for the off-season meaning new deals will not inflate the contract.  It will be based on the salaries at the END of the previous season.

Would have been nice to know this before my PR was almost gone...

It's a cool upgrade. Well done.

This is a reward for the players that use their PR throughout the season on scouting, but because someone just went to the combine, steal their picks in the draft.

Now they have some benefits to doing the scouting early.

You had every opportunity to do scouting early...

Do I need to start typing "sarcasm" so I don't get hall monitor responses?

The correct way is not in parenthesis. It's [/sarcasm].

Noob...

No need for a PR increase, you guys have more than enough.

So coaches will stop asking for raises and first round picks will take less than 3-4 million? 🙂

Nope, you guys will just have to decide who's worth it instead of paying shit coaches 10MM a year.
