    When do you want to do the FA Draft?

    Ok we had a question whether we were doing the FA Draft before or after the NFL Draft.

    If we were to do the FA Draft after the draft that'll allow for more time to decide on your tags based on how your draft goes. As you all know usually Free Agency is done before the NFL Draft in the offline franchise so the plan was supposed to be to follow the same format for this franchise although we are using a different system based on tagging free agents first. I'll leave the option open for it to be the other way around if enough people are for that.

    after....it will make sure you don't waste your tags...

    or allow you to drop a tag after the drafted players can be seen. that way you can make a educated guess if i player you like will drop to you...

    Before, plus you can start the first round and get the majority done when the playoffs start

    The only thing about that is we don't know who's going to retire and what the ratings are going to turn out to be. So we can't really start the draft until the season is over and progression happens.

    I think the best compromise is to be able to make changes to the tags after progression/retires happen and when the eligible draft prospects are shown..

    That makes sense. In real life and the offline you get to scout draft picks and use that when addressing Free Agency, whereas in our online franchise we dont see the college kids until the day of the draft.

    I voted for before, but I may want to switch now that I think about it.

    i meant to hit before not after, i would like to know the holes i have due to the player draft before the rookie draft rather than after so i can fill the whole with my draft picks

    I put after, I'd rather draft to cover a few holes and then fill what remains in free agency. Especially if my pick is up and a certain position is the best player available, yet I just grabbed the same position in free agency.
