Please vote.

Here is a discussion on FOFC about the 39 setting.

http://www.operationsports.com/fofc/showthread.php?t=91136

I voted for 39

Interesting. I wonder if there will be more thought given to not giving away a monster veteran for a draft pick as that draft pick is so volatile.

by Argot at Tue Jan 12, 2016 08:25 AM

I've been through several "39" drafts and it provides new twists and turns to the process. So far I like it. Only time will tell, but 39 seems to even the field a bit for GMs who are not as experienced with the stat side of the draft. I think it also helps teams with good scouting.

by Rip Murdock at Tue Jan 12, 2016 10:28 AM

Considering how I did in this year's draft, I voted for 39.

by Hinch at Wed Jan 13, 2016 11:15 AM

Now that I finally figured out how to draft, let's change things up. I voted 39 and will go back to drafting based on cool or strange name only.

by TurfToe at Thu Jan 14, 2016 09:00 AM

I vote for 39

by Vitostallion at Tue Jan 26, 2016 10:33 AM

Another vote for 39

Everyone please upgrade your version to 7.2 over the weekend, don't worry if your steam autoupgraded you, your file should be good.

If you don't upgrade, your monday file will not work.

Upgrade link;

http://www.solecismic.com/orders/FOF7Install.msi

Is there a page with upgrade directions on it? Perhaps on the FOF site?

Big changes..

I think we should update ASAP.

What does everyone else think?

I think everyone should upgrade over the weekend.

by JJ Smitty at Wed Dec 09, 2015 11:51 AM

So besides updated rosters and schedule for 2015 that doesn't affect us, the only changes are XP's at the 33 like the NFL did and the draft is going to be even harder?

I'm ready to upgrade whenever. Seems like prior to week 1 of the regular season is pretty important.

by Hinch at Wed Dec 09, 2015 12:16 PM

I think it's fine to upgrade immediately. We use combine accuracy 50, right? Any thoughts on lowering it to <40 for next season to provide more of a challenge?

by Taco at Wed Dec 09, 2015 12:52 PM

I'm all for upgrading. Since we just finished our draft, we have some time to think about what to do with the combine setting, I guess.

by Rip Murdock at Wed Dec 09, 2015 01:03 PM

I play via steam and the game automatically upgraded for me. Hope it doesn't create a problem for my exported file.

by WillDuke at Wed Dec 09, 2015 01:26 PM

I think upgrade over the weekend sounds good.

by bbriders at Wed Dec 09, 2015 05:24 PM

There has been an upgrade in the past that we waited on until the next season so it might be worth your time to set FOF to not update automatically.

by bbriders at Wed Dec 09, 2015 05:26 PM

i've upgraded, but man... think this is a horrible upgrade, makes the draft even harder...

...i mean why bother studying traits, combines and masked pairs anymore. feels like were heading toward complete randomness... totally devalues draft picks imo...smh

but time will tell. i hope i'm wrong

by bighousebrock at Sun Dec 13, 2015 04:53 AM

We are staying at 50 on combine accuracy so the constraints should still be there. That's only when you put the CA at 40 or below.

by JJ Smitty at Sun Dec 13, 2015 04:56 AM

ok, that is a relief. ty

Atlantic City Rookie Report

First Round

Dan McLaurin

Image


WR - Arizona State - 6' 0" - 192 lbs
1st Round. Pick #1-5. #5 Overall
Pre-Draft Grade: 6.90
Pre-Draft Adjusted Grade: 6.90
Key Combine Scores: Solecismic 33, 40 Time 4.31, Agility 6.77, Position Drill 59

When the draft class was released, ACI targeted 4 players with their pick at #5. This included 3 wide receivers (Oakes, Patten and McLaurin) and a safety (Mahoney). With DE Stokley selected #1 overall, the Phantoms were guaranteed to get one of their targeted players. Oakes and Patten were the top 2 receivers on the board and were selected at the #2 and #3 slots. When Tucson selected DE Gray at #4, ACI was left with a tough choice.

Safety Mahoney was a combine beast, while also clocking a 4.32 40 time. With excellent size and the previously noted speed, he could be left at safety or moved to cornerback. Either way, Mahoney could be an all-pro for many years to come. The one problem was a possible conflict with defensive leaders on the Phantoms roster.

McLaurin is rated a bit below Mahoney, and almost a full point below the top 2 receivers, but still looks like a big time receiver. He clocked a 4.31 40 time at the combine while also excelling in agility, solecismic and position drill.

In the end, McLaurin was the pick. ACI has been looking for a big time receiver for the last 10 years and hope they finally found one. If nothing else, they add some much needed speed and big play ability to the two-te offense that has been struggling for the past season or two.


Second Round
TRADE - Atlantic City traded pick 2-4 to Cleveland for pick 2-20 and a future 2nd round pick.

Diego Loupe

Image


FB - Virginia Tech - 5' 9" - 233 lbs
2nd Round. Pick #2-20. #52 Overall
Pre-Draft Grade: 5.40
Pre-Draft Adjusted Grade: 5.40
Key Combine Scores: Solecismic 37, 40 Time 4.58, Bench Reps 25, Agility 7.00, Broad Jump 9' 11", Position Drill 34

ACI may regret not staying at 2-4 and selecting one of the center options that was available but the decision was made to add a high future draft pick and move down in the round. Loupe was another workout warrior who looks like he could be a big time player. The question is was it worth a second round pick? The way the Phantoms have drafted in the past, getting a good player at any position is better than getting a scrub with a 4 year contract.


Fourth Round

Vince Wimmer

Image


T - Boston College - 6' 5" - 320 lbs
4th Round. Pick #4-2. #98 Overall
Pre-Draft Grade: 5.70
Pre-Draft Adjusted Grade: 5.70
Key Combine Scores: Solecismic 30, 40 Time 5.00

The Phantoms have had terrible luck drafting offensive lineman in the first round (two busts in the past 5 years) so they waited until the fourth round to get some line help. Wimmer dropped quite a bit from his projection of a low 2nd round pick. Endurance is a bit of a concern but if his huge run blocking numbers (71-99) are not an aberration than he could be a contributor on the line.



Fifth Round

Chris Erickson

Image

Note - Do you know how hard it is to find a picture of an SMU defensive back who is NOT getting beat by his opponent? It took much longer than any other player. Just sayin'.

S - SMU - 6' 0" - 212 lbs
5th Round. Pick #5-1. #129 Overall
Pre-Draft Grade: 4.60
Pre-Draft Adjusted Grade: 4.60
Key Combine Scores: Agility 7.00

After choosing a WR over a S in round 1, it was only a matter of time before ACI selected a prospect for the secondary. Erickson had a good but not great combine but his preliminary ratings look pretty good across the board.



Sixth Round

William Green

Image


CB - Iowa State - 5' 9" - 190 lbs
6th Round. Pick# 6-5. #165 Overall
Pre-Draft Grade: 4.90
Pre-Draft Adjusted Grade: 4.90
Key Combine Scores: Solecismic 28

Like Erickson, Green looks to have good numbers across the board with a good combine (broad jump being his only weakness but not of importance). Size may be an issue so we will see how that pans out. On a team with very few options at cornerback, Green may see the field regardless of how his ratings are.



Seventh Round

Tim Strom

Image



CB - Indiana - 5' 11" - 195 lbs
7th Round. Pick #7-4. #196 Overall
Pre-Draft Grade: 4.70
Pre-Draft Adjusted Grade: 4.70
Key Combine Scores: Solecismic 29, 40 Time 4.40, Agility 6.96

Strom is a late round flyer based on his combine results. He looks to be a great athlete and fills a hole for a man to man corner, as opposed to Green and most of the other cornerbacks on the roster who are zone specialists. His special team ratings should make him a contributor from day one.

Yep, nice pick and analysis. I am very glad to pick up the S Mahoney, but McLaurin was a combine beast as well and should be a standout WR.
