Spoiler:
  • 1. Import the Draft Class as normal.
  • 2. Use MaddenAMP to open the franchise file and lower every Rookie LE, RE and DT's ACC and TAK by 15-20 (These values are still in testing) points. I'm not sure if NZA's Editor let's you specifically do this however.
  • 3. Do the Draft. You should have about 4-8 DLs to be drafted in the first.
  • 4. Right after the draft, manually increase every Rookie LE, RE and DT's ACC and TAK by 15-20 points, back to the default values.

For step 4, you don't need to manually edit each rookie to get their ratings back. You can just do the global edits like in step 2, but do the inverse. Globally increment rookie ratings at those position rather than decrement.

All right, I was thinking about doing some updates to the generator. I still think DLs are drafted too high and there are not enough top ranked QBs. For that I'll ask ...

After reading through this thread, it appears you have more experience at manipulating the Madden AMP system than I do. I also had a big problem with DTs getting drafted way too high. I'm surprised your attempts to stop it didn't work, I would have thought lowering their stats would have done the trick.

It's been awhile since I tested your draft class generator, so I'll give it a shot this weekend and see if I can figure anything out.

So, I figured out some additional things.
1) MLBs are way, way too low on the draft board, usually starting as 4th-5th round picks.
2) I took the stats I used for the Generator from Madden 20 itself, then adjusted it to fit M08. Most of the adjustments came from changing the OVR so that it was more inline with what 08 generates (40 to 60 AWR). I was thinking about allowing the generator to use the true AWR, which would make some players come with higher OVRs. The highest possible AWR in M20 rookie classes is, depending on position, 74 to 78. The highest for my generator is 68. On the other hand, the lowest possible AWR in M20 is apparently 45. On my generator is 35. Something I was considering was widening the AWR range to cover M20's highest and M08's lowest (somewhere along the 30's).
3) Along these lines, some of my generated players are less skilled than Madden's generated players, mostly linemen. Even some of the highest rated linemen might not get upper 80s in blocking (Mostly power OL. I artificially made it so that Power OL would get high Strength but less skill while Agile OL would get high skill but less Strength). I also considered adjusting this.
