Creating a story-driven Madden 21 draft class - Stories wanted


Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

I have enjoyed some of the community created draft classes so much (Shouts to the Shotcallers, Associated and others on some other platforms) that I wanted to give back to the same community. I am going to create a draft class, and would like yall's help. If you are willing, I would be looking for background stories on players, with names, strength, weaknesses and such. I will slot them into the draft with skillsets to match the descriptions, include them in the class and give credit on the players.

If you can help, please comment below and Ill reach out. Full class will be posted here when complete. and available for download on the xbox servers.

Example of a very detailed preview sent in by a contributor:

 

Justin Fall, 21 y/o, QB (Left-Handed)
6'6", 210 LB’s
College: Arizona StateThe Toms River, New Jersey native spent the past three seasons shining for Arizona State. After a freshman year on the bench at Rutgers, Fall saw an opportunity in the desert to play for former New Jersey legend Herm Edwards.Fall won the starting quarterback job heading into his sophomore season behind an excellent spring camp. At the time, Edwards described Fall as, “heady, a field-general, a guy we trust to win games, and that’s why we play the games.”Fall threw for four-touchdowns right out of the gate in a narrow defeat to #7 Wisconsin to start his sophomore season. Throughout that season he showed poise in the pocket and fast decision-making. The Sun Devils finished the year 8-4, but had a top 15 ranked offense.Heading into Fall’s junior season, expectations were raised during the summer, but heading into the fall, some began to question his focus on football. Fall, a former Little League World Series star, was given a chance to join the ASU baseball team. With his time now split between the two sports, outsiders began to worry about Fall’s dedication. He put that to rest at the start of the season with a near perfect fourth quarter in a come from behind upset of USC. Fall went 11-of-12, with 147 yards and two touchdowns in the final 15 minutes to rally his team from down 12 points.For the next four weeks, Fall was having an All-American type season. His fortunes changes on a late September night at the Rose Bowl. Early in the second-half, Fall was hit from the blind side and driven to the grass. His plant leg caught in the field and he rolled on the ground in pain. He would go on to miss the next four weeks with a sprained MCL, before coming back from the team’s final three games.Healthy come the spring, Fall took the mound for the Sun Devil baseball program and showed his arm-talent off. Hitting mid-90's on the gun and impeccable control throughout the season, Fall was ultimately drafted that June by the Atlanta Braves in the MLB Draft. After intense negotiations, he decided football was his true love and that we would return to ASU for his senior season.Heading into the season, draft experts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay each had Fall as a late first-round pick. As the football world turned to dual-threat quarterbacks, Fall did not possess the athleticism and fleet of foot talent that others around the country showed. That said, there remained little questions about his arm.Preseason accolades included being selected as a pre-season All-American and Pac-12 Player of the Year favorite. His year began with a 34-38, 373 yard, 3 touchdown victory over ranked BYU. The Sun Devils were sitting at 6-0 when they headed to Berkeley to take on the Golden Bears. Down three defensive starters due to targeting calls the week prior, Fall and the offense were forced to trade score for score with the Bears. A late special teams error ultimately hurt the Sun Devils, it was Fall’s fearlessness during the game and the leadership he showed postgame were enough to show pro teams he was the real deal.His final game as a Sun Devil came in the Cotton Bowl where #11 ranked ASU beat #7 Oklahoma. His 10,212 yards at ASU rank third all-time, but the most of a player in three-years. His senior year total of 4,169 broke the previously held record of Brock Osweiler.Heading into the draft, some view Fall as having the ceiling of Philip Rivers and the floor of Jared Goff. While he will need to go to a team that can protect him, he shows a toughness under duress and a mind that can handle any look the defense throws his way.When it comes to arm strength, he can make any intermediate throw with deadly accuracy. While his accuracy remains there on deeper routes, some wonder if he is better suited for a west-coast style passing attack. One thing is certain, he is ready to lead an NFL offense from day 1.
