    So I was bored today and wanted to figure out if EA got the proper deciding factors on how to determine draft pick order.

    I simulated a CCM and took a look at the final standings as sorted by NFL by losses. Then I went in and jumped to the draft. The two orders did not match up, so I wanted to look into what would be the determining factors were that made teams with like records pick ahead of the others.

    So I checked into the factors in the past....

    Alphabetical order based on Team Name
    Alphabetical order based on Team City
    Point Diffierential
    Conference Record
    Division Record

    All these factors did not determine the actual picking order. The actual determining factor IRL for breaking ties amongest like record of teams is Strength of Schedule. The teams that have the easiest schedule will pick ahead of those that had a harder schedule.

    So I decided to calculate that for those teams...

    Results: EA actually got it correct. The true tiebreaker worked the way it should have.

    This was tested on an offline CCM and I am hoping it translates to our online model.

    I made this chart to show what our draft order would look like if this remains the same for us:

    I did through the 6-10 teams as this got very time consuming. This should show pick 1-14.

    If Keller wins more than 7 games next season, I'm driving to Ohio and kicking him in the dick. Really fucking hard.

    Better work on that PK kick power then because I'm finding me a damn QB and there aren't a shit ton of days I'll be out of town due to the holidays. The Bills are coming back bitches.

    Thank you for doing this Anthony. I was going to the other night, but got distracted.

    Glad I was able to contribute.

    I wanted to posted this before we get the draft order officially so we can compare for accuracy. I am hoping the one season I did was not a product of chance, and that this is in fact a little detail in which EA made sure they considered for all us gamers that want real life tiebreakers to be in the game.

    Buccaneers also looking to trade top 10 pick for additional picks this year. OR trade up to within top 3-5 range. Bucs currently draft 9th.

    Bills have been shopping their top pick (2 or 3 I'm told) for awhile now. Shoot me an offer.

    I know the Bills are 2nd... which is contrary to Ant's calculations unfortunately.

    We could advance to draft week to determine true draft order.

    If someone has the time, you can go into the trade screens and look there. It'd be unfair to advance now, as I'm sure people still have some scouting to do.

    I looked at the trade screen a few days ago and it is exactly the console standings order. I am not sure if that will change once we advance or not as it did in my test season.

    I just don't see how you can trade a pick thinking its #2 and it ending up#3;so I'm sure it'll stay the same.
