    Post Position Changes Here

    I think I might be moving a DE to FB, if that's cool with you guys.

    But let's keep changes real - no WR to TE, no HB to DE = no working the speed advantage. Post your changes here. ATH changes need not be posted.

    O-Line is completely cool. It happens all the time.

    I moved a guard from one side to the other. Put my 96 spd ATH at corner(69ovr), and moved an 89Spd CB to FS. Also I somehow ended up signing one too many guys, my roster is at 71. I would be more than happy to cut my 4 star #8 T who ended up being a 71 ovr bust. Also I got a TE with 94THP?

    I had a backup QB last year that ended up doubling as my #1 TE..

    I mean literally he was big enough to play there, could block,receive, had decent speed, and could throw.

    It was awesome

    Sometimes the CPU doesn't recognize if you put change a guy's position to fill a gap. Sometimes, the CPU will put a walk-on on the team anyway. Let me know if this is what happened.

    Typically, any change that highlights speed gets scrutinized pretty heavily. Corner to safety happens, but three at once could be seen as moving speed around the field in an un-sim way just to gain an advantage. Defense is not as big a deal as offense, but it still gets looked at, especially if a guy doesn't recruit any safeties, but recruits extra corners.

    We only have a few more games to play, so I don't really mind, but if year two were happening a few months ago, the guys might not like it. Just an FYI. It's fine with me.

    One thing I think we'll need to address is FB and TE weight/speed restrictions. Those are two positions that are very hard to recruit and will be the focus of a lot of position changes.

    Hey man..I understand that..and respect it

    Sam Pierce is going to be my starter at FS..because he is the best overall

    My fastest SS is 85 spd or something like that..those two guys are 90..I had a lot of corners and not a lot of SSs so I moved my best tackling corners there..I am hoping that they get a lot better through the training or w/e..if not they probably wont play anyway


    edit: Let me know if you'd like me to explain more..because I feel I can justify

    I don't have any problem with it. It's just that in the past, we have had guys who recruit 8 corners a year, then move them to safety, linebacker, etc., just to get the speed advantage. This isn't what you're doing at all. It's just the kind of thing that has happened in the past. That's why we look at it so closely.

    Understandable..

    when I recruit if I need guys at a certain spot I recruit 5 guys max..and if I sign 2 I usually drop the other guys..

    I keep my recruiting board at about 25 too..so no worries..

    Hey guys, I completed my Position changes. I moved my Tight End to Right End hopefully thats okay with you cause it does happen in real life. Also moved my Left Tackle to Right Tackle

    O=Line moves are fine.

    Offense to defense is OK, as long as it's reasonable. In the past, we've had guys move 190 pound HB's to DE, and then they speed rush around the tackles and rack up huge sack numbers. Again, it's a speed thing. If your TE is , say 78-83 in speed, then he's close to DE speed, and I see no issue with it. Some DE's are faster, but in most cases, a fast TE would remain a TE, unless you're stacked at that position.
