Madden 20: Post-Draft PS4 Roster Courtesy htown5933 Features 175 Rookies

I’m putting a disclaimer at top of these roster posts to make three things clear:

  1. There is a limit to the amount of players who can be added to the game on consoles. If your favorite prospect isn’t in the game, it’s probably not the roster creator’s fault, but rather just a limit of how far they can go creating rosters.
  2. If you have trouble downloading a roster, it is not the roster creator’s fault. EA has fixed some of the community download issues, but it can still be a little spotty at times. Here are the latest tips to get the files if you are struggling:
    • If you’re getting error codes when downloading, try the backup file associated with a roster — if there is one. Or just keep trying (it does download eventually).
    • If your file downloads but doesn’t show up in your load/delete folder, confirm its not in your load folder. From there, quit out of Madden, then restart Madden back up and then immediately go back to the Community Downloads and re-download the file. It should be there now.
  3. Development traits can’t be added outside of franchise mode. This is not in a roster creator’s control — it’s on you once you get into a franchise.

With that said, htown5933 has posted a roster on PS4 that includes free agency and all NFL Draft picks through round 4, plus another 29 players beyond the fourth round (26 draft picks and 3 UDFAs). So this roster includes 175 rookies overall.

  • File Name: HTOWN5933Draft
  • Backup File: HTOWN5933DRAFTPT2

He is still making adjustments to number changes and smaller free agent elements, but he’s mostly done creating rookies. If you have constructive notes for him that aren’t just “why isn’t X player created?” then by all means use the thread.

Additionally, one other OS user has been working hard on a PS4 roster file: Unfadeable23

  • User Name: UnFadeable21
  • File Name: Madden2021

He is similarly working up through the fourth round but is not quite done as of yet. He has the same general plan to mostly stop after the fourth round, but will look to add some players from later in the draft here and there where possible.

  1. It appears EA's downloading issue has been taken to another level.
    NO ONE has been able to download the roster.
    I uploaded both again earlier - and even made a 3rd to give yet another option.
    You guys let me know when/if you're able to finally download it.

    Nope, nothing works.

    Yeah, I just had a guy on twitter tell me that he's unable to download ANYTHING from anyone.
    I don't know, guys. I know xAPATHYx13 has been tweeting out about the issues on XB1 as well. EA apparently knows about it and can't give an ETA on a fix.
    Maybe the fact that no one is able to download anything right now means they're working on it. (we can hope)
    I don't know when or if EA will get the Community Share fixed but thought I'd hop in here and update you guys.
    I've identified the next 45-47 prospects I'm going to make.
    If I make these 45 I have picked out it'll bring the total number of prospects to 117. With those 117 I'll have the Top 100 on both Matt Miller and CBS Sports' Big Boards (with the exception of the XFL's safety Kenny Robinson who Miller has ranked at #91 right now... so I'd probably create him as well... along with Chicago's Tre Robinson).
    If I create Washington's Trey Adams (37th on Walter Football's board, 213th on Miller's board and 107th on CBS Sports board) and Oregon's Shane Lemieux (38th on Walter Football's board, 172nd on Miller's and 162nd on CBS Sports) it'll make it 119 prospects and include everyone in the top 100 for both Miller and CBS as well as the top 64 for Walter Football.
    I know there's a ton of draft sites and analysts out there but those are 3 pretty well respected ones.
    Hopefully they get the Community Share fixed soon. I want to be able to share the roster with you guys.
    htown5933
    Well, guys if you followed in the Free Agency thread you know due to no live sports being on TV the boredom combined with the draft bug biting got to me.
    After saying I wasn't going to make a draft roster anymore I gave in.
    Now, I DID make a huge change this year. I just can't do what it takes to create the prospects from scratch. All the research and moving from the laptop to the PS4... it kills you when you're old and have health issues.
    So I found a draft class I liked (2020CBSDRAFT by Loschi-13, if you want to check it out), took pics of the prospects then simply created them from my phone for my free agency roster. It's not any QUICKER, but it is easier.
    Of course there are still many edits, most notably the speed ratings, many OVR ratings and a lot of the equipment.
    I don't know how many guys I will create this year. I believe Jerwoods said there's 112 CAP slots. At this point there's 72 of the top prospects in the free agent pool.
    The file name is HTOWN5933DRAFT and HTOWN5933DRAFTPT2. They're the same file, but just giving guys another option to try to download since the EA downloading issue still exists.
    Hope you guys like it as much as you have in the past. As always, feel free to hit me on twitter @don_dougan with any requests or errors you feel need addressed. Or message me here in the thread or on the PS4.
    I only ask you try to understand that ratings on prospects are never going to please everyone. It's a TON of work and I just do the best I can. My ratings system has worked well over the years but I'm always open to make changes (even though the majority of the ratings are from Loschi-13). Just support your argument. :)
    As always, thanks for you guys' support.

    there is 112 caps overall
    if u go by the last roster update 113 if u count the 36 Ovr QB
    i wanted to do my own fa roster and edits but i get sidetracked easy but if this keep going i might give it 1 more try but i cant do the draft that takes way too much time for me
    An update for you guys, even though we're still unable to download ANYTHING from the Community Share.
    I added 12 more prospects last night, bringing the total number to 84.
    After talking with xAPATHYx13 a bit on Twitter I started the "adjusting" of OVR ratings a little early this year. That got me to thinking... out of boredom I thought I'd list the prospects I've made so far and what their OVR ratings are CURRENTLY. Remember, that often changes as the draft approaches and guys move up and down draft boards. I also always adjust OVR ratings AFTER a player is actually drafted.
    Sure, they're wrong at times but I assume most GM's & NFL personnel departments are smarter than we are and more informed about a player lol.
    Anyway, here's what I have so far as well as a list of guys who I'm scheduled to add at this time and their current OVR rating.
    QB - J. Burrow 75, T. Tagovailoa 74, J. Herbert 73, J. Love 72, J. Eason 70, J. Fromm 68, J. Hurts 68.
    HB - D. Swift 75, J. Taylor 75, C. Edwards-Helaire 74, J. Dobbins 74, C. Akers 73, Z. Moss 73.
    WR - J. Jeudy 77, C. Lamb 76, H. Ruggs III 76, J. Jefferson 75, T. Higgins 75, D. Mims 74, L. Shenault Jr. 74, B. Aiyuk 74, M. Pittman Jr. 73, K. Hamler 73, J. Reagor 73, D. Peoples-Jones 72, C. Claypool 72, G. Davis 71, D. Duvernay 71, L. Bowden Jr. 71, V. Jefferson 70, B. Edwards 70, A. Gandy-Golden 70, T. Johnson 69.
    TE - C. Kmet 74, T. Moss 72, A. Trautman 71, B. Hopkins 71, H. Bryant 70.
    T - A. Thomas 76, M. Becton 76, T. Wirfs 76, J. Wills Jr. 76, A. Jackson 74, J. Jones 74, I. Wilson 72. Likely to add... P. Tega Wanogho 72, L. Niang 71, T. Phillips 71, E. Cleveland 70, M. Peart 70, A. Taylor 69-70, T. Adams 68.
    G - Likely to add... J. Simpson 72-73, R. Hunt 71, D. Lewis 71, S. Lemieux 70, N. Muti 69, J. Jackson 69, S. Kindley 68.
    C - L. Cushenberry III 73, C. Ruiz 72, T. Biadasz 72, M. Hennessy 70, N. Harris 70.
    DE - C. Young 80, AJ Epenesa 75, Y. Gross-Matos 74, T. Lewis 73, C. Weaver 73, M. Davidson 72. Likely to add... B. Anae 72, A. Robinson 71, J. Zuniga 71, J. Stowbridge 70-71.
    DT - D. Brown 77, J. Kinlaw 76, J. Madubuike 74, R. Blacklock 74, N. Gallimore 73. Likely to add... R. Davis 73, J. Elliott 72.
    OLB - I. Simmons 79, K. Chaisson 76, P. Queen 74, Z. Baun 73, J. Okwara 73. Likely to add... J. Uche 73, M. Harrison 72, A. Jennings 71, J. Greenard 71, T. Dye 70-71, D. Taylor 70, A. Davis-Gaither 69-70.
    MLB - K. Murray 75.
    CB - J. Okudah 78, CJ Henderson 76, T. Diggs 74, K. Fulton 74, AJ Terrell 74, J. Gladney 73, N. Iginoghene 73, B. Hall 73, J. Johnson 72, D. Arnette 72, C. Dantzler 72. Likely to add... S. Samuels 72, T. Burgess 71, AJ Green 71, L. Jackson 70, T. Pride 69-70.
    S - X. McKinney 75, G. Delpit 74, A. Winfield Jr. 73, J. Chinn 72, A. Davis 72, K. Dugger 72.
    A few things - yes, I know some OLB's will likely play DE and vice versa. Those position designations will be adjusted depending on what team drafts the player and what their plans for them are.
    Yes, we can argue all day about prospects being better than someone else, not as good as someone, etc. These are just the INITIAL ratings based on the draft boards I was using WHEN THEY WERE CREATED (most notably Matt Miller, CBS Sports and Walter Football). Again, as I do every year, OVR's will be adjusted based on actual draft position more than likely.
    One thing I consider - while X brought up last year's Madden rookie ratings, I also struggle when placing a rookie in the FA pool and seeing how he "ranks" compared to the available veterans. It's a tough balance to keep the ratings similar to last year while also keeping them comparable to available veterans. So please... I didn't shoot this to you guys to start a debate or argument lol. These are INITIAL ratings. :)
    This would be 119 prospects. There are only 112 CAP's. I believe there are 34 pre-existing/EA created "rookies" currently in the FA pool that most likely won't be on any teams. These are always the first guys I choose when creating guys once the CAP's are used.
    There will likely be anywhere from 61 to 117 guys that could be used who are on teams now that won't likely make the team. If they don't fix the Community Share I doubt I'd go into using these guys. I may not anyway and might stop at just the first 3 rounds... possibly go through the 4th.
    Just wanted to give you guys an update and preview. Hope they get the Community Files/share fixed soon. (*** Edit - forgot MLB K. Murray)

    I'm tired of waiting for EA to fix the downloads, I'm just going edit the draft class the game creates using your overalls as a base. They look nicely balanced, slightly lower overalls than classes I've downloaded this year.
    Thanks for posting that, and I'll be sure to give your class a try when/if EA get their act together.

    Won't be updating here every time I make an adjustment but just to give you an example of the type of tweaks I make leading up to the draft...
    I swapped Cushenberry and Ruiz's OVR and raised Chinn back up to a 73. I've seen three or four mocks in the last two days that had Ruiz going in the 1st round and saw one today at Walter Football that had Chinn going in the 1st - over Delpit.
    Obviously can't adjust to every mock that is thrown out there but those are the type of things I do as the draft nears.
    Y'all be safe out there!
    We knew Clinton Dix was going with 27 but some of the other guys have gotten their #’s according to the website roster. 80-Bell 28-Canady 79-Hamilton, Jelks taking 96. 2-Zuerlein

    And McCoy 93. I had him and Poe.
    After several numbers I'd settled on 27 for HCD and got lucky. Had to adjust Bell. And Jelks.
    Also, Lenoir isn't showing on the official roster. Still is on the Wiki roster. But, Tevin Jones is now showing to have 14. I gave Lenoir 17 'cause he wore #7 in college.
    I don't know if everyone will get to use it but I've uploaded an update with 104 of the top prospects.
    The longer EA goes without fixing the Community Downloads/Share feature the less likely I'll have more than the 3rd round, unfortunately.
    I know I'll have the prospects through round 3 (and all of the Cowboys picks lol) but the odds of even getting through round 4 decrease with each day that passes without us being able to download/share rosters.
    Hope it gets fixed before the draft for you guys!
    Latest transactions update available. (and I've used all of the 112 CAP's for prospects)
    Not sure when or if EA will fix the Community Share feature but if they do the file will be there for you guys.
    I'm struggling to "get going" and make more prospects after the 112 CAP slots have been used. I almost did earlier and would've used Tyler Newsome to create a prospect. Glad I didn't as he was signed by the Chiefs today.
    I'm confident the 4th round is as far as I'll go this year, and that's if I can get motivated to match up/use the guys in the FA pool (and then 4 other guys that won't make the team they're currently on).
    An outside chance I end up sticking at just the 3rd round. Maybe if the share feature was working it'd be easier to get motivated.
    Community Downloads are downloading again on Xbox - however several users (myself included) still do not get the files to appear in their Load/Delete folders.

    It’s working finally. The April 8 version looks great! When will the update drop?

    Thanks, man.
    I saw on Twitter someone said the same thing to X.... they could only download the 4/8 version.
    If Aldon Smith on the Cowboys is 6'4"... then it's the "latest" update.
    If he's 6'5", it's NOT the latest. The last CAP I used was for HB A.J. Dillon. If he's in the FA pool, you likely have the latest version. If the Rams have both kickers they signed today, that's the latest version.
    They've been uploaded. Hopefully you're able to download them. A guy on Twitter told me he was able to download the latest version(s) on the 2nd attempt earlier tonight.
    Good luck!
    OK, this may not be a big deal but I wanted to share this with you guys...
    Some of you may remember a couple years ago when I stayed up from 12 noon on Saturday, the last day of the draft, until 11am Sunday creating prospects to have everyone included asap.
    I uploaded Sunday and crashed lol.
    I find out a few days later that Tom From Germany STOLE my roster. I was pissed.
    Anyway, if you'll go back to the 1st page of this thread I was asked if I used EA's final roster as my base. I said I believe so, I used a file named 2020 by RyanBruh or something like that.... and changed his retirees ratings back to normal and made them punters before starting my edits and transactions.
    Well, tonight while looking through teams for a few EA made rookies to use for prospects to try and get through the 4th round, I notice two guys... Nick Easley with Buffalo and Darion Clark with Chicago. (I can only assume there's more?)
    Their faces weren't real. I then looked for them on EA's final roster. They're not there. So I assume that this guy RyanBruh created some futures guys.
    Anyway, I edited my description to acknowledge him and also reached out to him via message on PS4.
    Just like I credited Loschi-13's draft class in my description for the draft roster... I'd never "steal" someone's roster or prospects, without crediting them for at the very least their "base"... as I know exactly how that feels.
    May not be a huge deal but wanted to throw that out there.
    On a positive note, I'm now extremely confident I'll have all draft picks through the 4th round.
    I'll only have to "replace" 3 long snappers (with 1 year experienced guys who don't have a pic) and possibly Bears center Sam Mustipher, who's on a futures contract. That's it. (unless any of the EA rookies currently in the FA pool are signed by someone)
    So we'll have all 146 draft picks through the 4th round almost guaranteed!
    I'm going to have 146 prospects in the FA pool prior to the draft - should have 'em done hopefully by Thursday night. Whichever of them aren't drafted, I'll replace them with guys that are drafted in the first 4 rounds. I'm hoping all 112 of the CAP rookies ARE taken in the first 4 rounds. Doesn't always happen like that, however.
    We'll see. NINE DAYS away!
    Added 8 more prospects tonight, bringing the total to 120.
    I have 26 guys picked out to add as well as the guys to use in order to do it.
    I'm not 100% confident I want to add 'em as I'll end up changing several of them I'm sure after the 4th round.
    Also, if you're still having issues downloading but not finding the roster in your folder xAPATHYx13 tweeted a copy of a workaround. It can be seen here...
    https://twitter.com/xAPATHYx13/status/1250218205827735554
    Hope you guys are enjoying it. I'm sure you're getting draft fever like I am!
    Any draft guys wanna give their opinion? You can only pick 4 from this group?
    S Josh Metellus
    S K'Von Wallace
    S Geno Stone
    CB AJ Green
    CB Michael Ojemudia
    CB Stanford Samuels
    WR Quintez Cephus
    WR Jauan Jennings
    WR Joe Reed
    HB Joshua Kelley
    And 1 of these 2...
    DE Trevis Gipson
    T Jack Driscoll

    Disregard this question lol.
    I'm gonna' try to find another 4 guys on teams I'm comfortable either using and/or replacing to make it an even 150 prospects (before the draft).
    That'll likely be the limit as well. 146 picks through round 4 and all the Cowboys picks. :)
    OK, just another quick update...
    We WILL have every draft pick through the 4th round with the only guys being used currently on teams THAT WEREN'T REPLACED/re-made as follows... (I can always replace/re-make these guys with players that have 1 year experience and copy their ratings exactly as they are if they appear to have a decent shot of making the team).
    Chi C Sam Mustipher
    Chi G Dino Boyd
    Mia CB Rashard Causey
    Car K Elliott Fry
    That's it! All four are on futures contracts as well.
    I will use long snappers Zach Triner, Cole Mazza and Matt Orzech as well as Jacksonville center Tyler Gauthier. Those players have been replaced/re-made with players that have 1 year experience (all ratings have been copied exactly as they were in EA's final roster update).
    Pretty pumped that is all I'll have to use to get through the 4th round!
    There will be exactly 150 draft prospects in the free agent pool. Enough for the 146 picks through the 4th & a few more for the Cowboys who usually trade down and get an extra pick or two. :) Outside chance this could be done and uploaded tomorrow night but more likely for Friday or even Saturday I'd think. I'll let you guys know.

    May not be a huge deal but wanted to throw that out there.

    OK, this was still bothering me so... after quite a bit of research I found that the guy created 5 guys. I also found the players he used to create the player. They are as follows...
    TE Andrew East used for Chi TE D. Clark
    WR Evan Berry used for Buf WR N. Easley
    CB Lashard Durr used for Buf CB C. Lewis
    C Tejan Koroma used for Phi C K. Render
    LOLB Nick DeLuca used for NE LOLB T. Hall
    I will be using these guys to "replace" EA made rookies I use for this year's draft picks. I will restore these guys back to their originals in the free agency roster.
    After changing all the retired guy's ratings back to their originals I thought I'd fixed the roster back to everything orginal. Finding that he'd created a few guys killed me.
    I'd just thought I took a slight shortcut by grabbing a roster that someone had started releasing the free agents. I knew I could restore the lowered retiree ratings fairly easily. Had no idea he'd created a few guys.
    Again, may not be a big deal, especially only being 5 guys, but I prefer to have it 100% unique/my roster. (unless I was working with someone on it) :)
    Added 16 prospects in the latest update!
    There's now 136 of the top prospects in the FA pool. I hope to add the remaining 14 no later than Saturday so there'll be 150 prior to the draft!

    This isn't a draft class. Whenever you're making guys for a "play now" roster the type of development isn't an option.
    Alright, guys... Uploaded the latest update... we now have 150 of the top draft prospects in the roster! Please let me know of any issues or requests. I will likely be tweaking ratings this week & WILL have all picks through the 4th round! "HTOWN5933DRAFT". 👊
    Hope you guys enjoy it!
    Awesome job man, this is the perfect roster to hold all of us playnow guys over for the summer. Will you be adding the players to their teams next week after the draft?

    Thanks, man. Glad you're enjoying it.
    Yes, I always place the draft picks on their teams.
    I also will be creating anyone who is drafted through the 4th round by using anyone I've already created and changing them into whoever was drafted that I didn't have.
    It's just too difficult and time consuming to get good, accurate guys after the 4th round this year. Really, the 4th is pushing it.
    Update available with transactions through 7pm today.
    Also the Cardinals released jersey numbers.
    If you guys get info on more numbers being released feel free to let me know. I appreciate it!
    I uploaded both rosters again after making a couple of adjustments to Gronk.
    I slimmed his arms down one in size and definition. Looked too big in game. Gonna' try it again to see how it looks now.
    Also gave him standard sleeves as opposed to tight.
    Changed Joe Burrow's face and uploaded.
    Roster didn't get the love this year it normally does. Guess copying prospects didn't go over as well as creating and researching all on my own lol.
    When I used Loschi's class he had 5 likes and 0 dislikes and I thought they looked pretty good. As I mentioned before in the thread, as I went along it became apparent the top guys didn't have quite the time invested as the top picks. I edited where I thought was necessary (especially speed and equipment as well as face and OVR, which will be adjusted based on actual draft position).
    That's OK. It kept me sane during the no live sports!
    Happy Draft Eve, fellas. :cheers:

    Thanks for this. Will download tonight. Then start moving guys around after R1.
    Sent from my iPad using Operation Sports

    Yes sir!
    I'll update with today's moves, place the guys on their teams in the expected or likely positions (without using a retired jersey number) and also usually end up adjusting their OVR ratings to match their actual slot/position.

    Lamb Confirms #10

    He did.
    But, then Jerry said he hopes he'll take #88 to keep the tradition going. We'll see. I have him in #10 now though.
    Quick update with M. Thomas to the Texans as well as a couple of adjustments to the depth charts based on some post round 1 news.
    The adjustments will obviously continue for a few days as news breaks regarding how teams plan to use/utilize these new additions.
    Enjoy day 2!
    Update available with all but 7 players through the 3rd round.
    I'll add the missing 7 as well as everyone taken through the 4th round later this evening.
    Been up all night. Gotta' get some sleep before the draft starts again.
    Let me know of any issues or requests, guys.
    X.... I know you're exhausted too, but I asked you about Hunt. I had him at RG1 but they announced him as a tackle. Will he be RT1 you think? Thanks, man!
    Enjoy, guys.

    Enjoy, guys.

    We just drafted Solomon Kindley, who will likely move to RG, so Hunt will probably start at RT. Depth chart looks like:
    LT: Jackson/Davenport
    LG: Flowers/Calhoun
    C: Karras/Dieter
    RG: Kindley/Isidora
    RT: Hunt/Davis

    Will Donald Parham (Chargers TE, formerly of the XFL) be added to the roster at some point? Great roster by the way!

    Thanks, man.
    I really don't know. After I get everyone from the 4th round added I will then look at the XFL players that may have a legitimate chance at making a roster.
    I've been through this type of thing multiple times and they almost never actually make the teams or have any impact.
    I know there are a few that are getting some hype though and if possible I'll try to add them. It's just more difficult this year than ever before.
    I've only not had a full 7 rounds once... and that was last year, only going through the 6th. This year I only plan on getting through the 4th and maybe adding some special teams players where necessary (K, P, LS).
    Thanks for asking and I'll see what I can do.
    Guys, I'm sorry but I got called in today and it's also my daughter's birthday.
    I got to sleep at 7:10am this morning and will be working on very little sleep tonight.
    I still am going to do all I can to get a roster released tonight with everyone through the 4th. Worst case scenario it'll be tomorrow. But, I'm gonna' try my best to get it done tonight.
    As always, let me know of any issues you see or requests you have.
    Thanks!
    Just wanted to add.... when I mention suggestions or requests that's not just on adding guys or ratings, but faces too.
    As we know, EA's choices for faces are extremely limited.
    I'm 100% open to suggestions on improved faces if anyone has them.
    The update is likely going to be tomorrow, guys. I still have about 6 hrs of work to do. Doubt I'll make it tonight. But it WILL be out by tomorrow evening if not EARLY this morning. Estimate there will be 168-170 rookies, including all thru 4th rd.
    I'll definitely post whenever it gets uploaded. Sorry... been one of those days (or two lol).
    Can't go any longer, guys. Uploaded an update with all but 22 picks through the 4th round. Do have an additional 18 picks on their teams. Will make the 22 plus drafted K's, P's & LS today for 170 total rookies. HTOWN5933DRAFT. Enjoy!
    Hey man I am using the free agent roster without the draft picks. Why did you move John Franklin III on the Bucs down to a 28. He was a 59 I believe.

    *John Franklin III has entered the chat*
    Actually it’s because he has moved to WR...so he was probably just lowering his rating as a DB and hasn’t gotten around to readjusting. Likely won’t matter JFIII won’t be in active roster

    Sorry, man. I don't play franchise mode. Maybe someone else can help you.
    Maybe just Google each guy and nfl.com draft. You'll see a rating for each by Lance Zerlein (sp?). That could help you devise a system or chart for their traits. Good luck.

    Hey HTown5933, I don't mind going into the rosters and making the Hidden Dev adjustments... I'll look at how Madden applied Hidden Devs as the beginning of the year and attempt to use that distribution to provide to this year's rookies. Do you want me to make a spreadsheet for you? What would be the best way for me to get the information for hidden devs to you?
    Hey guy, xApathyx13 posted this on Twitter... for those that still are getting download issues.
    (I'm just now getting up lol....gonna eat then start on the missing 22 guys through the 4th round and the special teamers that were drafted. That'll make 170 total rookies)
    For those that can't get the roster in the Load/Delete folder. DL the file and confirm its not in your Load folder. Quit out of Madden. Re-start Madden back up and then immediately go back to the Community Downloads and redownload the file. It should be there now.
    Any chance you’ll be creating Fromm? Even though a 5th rd guy would be good to have him in there.

    For the "play now" roster there's nowhere to make or adjust Hidden Dev Adjustments.
    Pretty sure that's only available when you create rookies in a draft class.

    Yes, Fromm is one of the guys I'd already created that I won't be "overwriting"/using to make someone else.
    I didn't add above I'll also be finding someone to create the UDFA QB Seattle signed (Anthony Gordon) since they don't have a backup QB other than him (so I can release Geno). Seattle does this type of thing every year lol.
    I'll look at the possibility of making all QB's drafted in rounds 5 through 7 as well. Not a guarantee at this point but something I know I'll look at/consider.
    I'm look for this type of spreadsheet!

    Fromm is on there

    Yes he is, but there's also several others currently in the FA pool that I'll be using to make guys that were drafted above them.
    I'm trying to be extremely careful in using the low rated 2019 rookies without a pic currently on teams to make this year's rookies.
    I try to use those who are on futures contracts first. Then I try to use those who are buried further on the depth chart before using a guy who is rated low without a pic but one of just two at a position, for example.
    Pretty happy with the minimum number of 2019 EA rookies I'm gonna' be using. (Had to basically use em all in the past when I'd do all 7 rounds plus many, many UDFA's.... just not worth it this year, unfortunately).
    But, the roster will still have 170-175 of the most important rookies this year. :)

    Are you working on any equipment/number adjustments?

    The equipment is taken from what they appeared to wear the most during this past season (even their final game when available, which isn't always obvious).
    Jersey numbers are an on going adjustment as they come in/get assigned.
    I do however make sure NOT to use retired jersey numbers. Pet peeve of mine when roster makers do that.
    Madden20 update available w/the LS, kickers & punters added. Also Anthony Gordon to Seattle so I could release Geno. Will have the 22 missing players thru the 4th rd added late tonight. Enjoy. "HTOWN5933DRAFT".
    Love the rosters man. Glad to see your back. Any chance your able to squeeze in Tanner Muse LB/S for the Raiders ? He was drafted late 3rd out of Clemson. If not, no worries.

    Just downloaded your roster and it is fantastic! A Big Thank You!

    Thanks. Glad to hear you like it.
    It should be better tonight (and in the coming days/weeks as I get feedback and make adjustments).
    Update....
    Decided to keep Hunter Bryant and Thaddeus Moss instead of creating over them. Placed them on Detroit and Washington and along with Anthony Gordon they'll be the only UDFA's in the roster.
    Also will add Nate Stanley and Jake Luton.
    So there will be 175 rookies! That will likely be it though, unfortunately.
    I'm guessing it may be as late as 2am tonight. I'll post when I upload.
    Well, once again it was later than I had hoped.
    But... it... is.... uploaded!
    All picks through the 4th round plus an additional 29 (26 draft picks and 3 UDFA's) for a total of 175 rookies!!!
    As always, please keep the info on the numbers and anything else you feel may need addressed coming. I appreciate it big time.
    Hope you guys enjoy it. :cheers:

    Thanks, man. I appreciate that.
    No I won't be doing all 255 picks this year. EA has just made it so difficult to do without messing with a team's depth chart.
    There is a possibility I will complete through the 5th round. If I do there will probably be an additional 18 rookies included as well (15 additional draft picks and 3 UDFA's).
    It gets to the point where you're using low rated rookies from last year that are on teams (created by EA) to make this year's picks. Once you get to the 6th and 7th rounds there's no real guarantee anyway if a guy will make a roster over someone you may be creating over.
    I've got most of the guys identified I'd use to create the 20 remaining picks from the 5th round that aren't currently included in the roster. Just not 100% sure I'm going to move forward with it though.
    It's funny, I came across an old Twitter post this morning - I had 313 draft prospects created before the 2018 draft lol. Good times. That's the year Tom from Germany stole my roster smh.
    Definitely plan on adding Tommy Stevens and Cole McDonald. Hopefully I'll get motivated to add the remaining 20 to complete through the 5th round. I'll let you guys know when/if I do.
    See what I mean?
    The Giants claimed S Montre Hartage today. I can't add him 'cause I used him to create a rookie that was drafted already this year.
    Not that he'll make the team, but it still makes it tough to decide who to use. :)
    (in before x drops by to say "Uh no, he won't make the team"... lol)
    After studying the depth charts and guys I'd written down that I could use to create more of the missing 5th round rookies I've changed my mind.
    I'm just not comfortable using them all just yet. That could change as teams continue to sign free agents.
    But, as of right now I plan to add 10 of the 20 missing 5th rounders and QB's Tommy Stevens and Cole McDonald.
    So there will be everyone drafted through the 5th round other than 10 guys plus 16 other draft picks and 3 UDFA's for a total of 187 rookies.
    The 10 I hope to add are...
    LAC WR J. Reed
    CAR S K. Robinson
    JAX S D. Thomas
    CHI CB K. Vildor
    JAX WR C. Johnson
    DET WR Q. Cephus
    HOU WR I. Coulter
    CHI WR D. Mooney
    TEN DT L. Murchison
    MIN WR K.J. Osborn
    If/when I add after that it'd likely start with IND G D. Pinter & SF T C. McKivitz.
    Just keeping you guys posted on likely or possible future plans for the roster.

    Huge update uploaded!
    Added 12 more rookies bringing the total to 187!
    Only 10 picks are missing from the 5th round.
    Alll moves through today are included. Finally released Bortles and added Wolford today so there should be ZERO players on any teams that need to be released.
    That should be it for a little bit, guys. I want to try and actually enjoy playing the game some now. :)
    Hope you enjoy it!
    Hey man. Just wanted to say thanks for all the work you've done once again. You've really made me a happy dude. I hope this finds you and your loved ones well.
    Hey htown, love the roster this year as always! I didn’t even realize you were making a draft roster this year until I got bored and found it lol, glad you’re doing it because you’re the best in the biz and I fully understand getting burnt out on this ****. Anyways, thought I’d pop in and give a few recommendations for the roster that I noticed (mostly jersey numbers and a few depth chart for my Bengals).
    Bengals Jersey Numbers
    RB Samaje Perone: 34
    WR Mike Thomas: 80
    LB Josh Bynes: 56
    LB Logan Wilson: 55
    LB Austin Calitro: 47
    LB Akeem Davis-Gaither: 59
    CB Mackensie Alexander: 21
    CB Trae Waynes: 26
    CB LeShaun Sims: 38
    CB Greg Mabin: 29
    CB Tony Brown: 27
    SS Von Bell: 23 (this one isn’t official but it’s the only number in the 20’s available)
    Bengals Depth Chart:
    Michael Jordan over Billy Price at LG
    Fred Johnson as #2 RT
    Mackensie Alexander over Darius Phillips at SLCB
    Thank you again for having the best roster in the community year in and year out!

    Done. Thanks for the info!
    And the kind words. I'm not going through the team sites everyday looking for numbers updates like I used to.
    Yeah, I was "done" year before last. But, somehow ended up doing one. I was definitely done after last year. But, this no live sports caused me to go stir crazy and I had too much time available.
    I'm leaving at a good time. I feel there's more good roster makers out there than there were just a few years ago. So at least I'll be able to enjoy someone's next year!
    Glad you're enjoying it.

    Whats the name of the roster so I can download or the user? New to thread

    HTOWN5933DRAFT or HTOWN5933DRAFTPT2... just a 2nd file to try since the EA download issue is still a problem sometimes for people.
    Well... doing what I dread... going through each team's roster and making numbers adjustments lol.
    I HATE doing this. Time consuming and boring. But, we do have enough info out there now to where it's worth it.
    Also decided to research the rumored moves by the Cowboys as far as Awuzie to safety and Jaylon Smith and LVE pretty much swapping positions. As hard as it was for me to do I made those switches.
    Following the moves, the money, the comments... I think the Cowboys are actually moving foward with the belief they're top 3 corners are going to be Diggs, Worley and Anthony Brown in the slot, with the possibility Reggie Robinson could batttle with Worley. We'll see. But, that's going to be how I adjust their depth chart for now.
    Will probably be a couple of hours before I'm finished going through the teams for the jersey number adjustments then I'll upload. I'll post again so you guys know when it's up.

    Yes sir. I have Gordon starting. I had Beck at FB1. Moved Vannett into FB2 though.
    I left Covington at end 'cause EA's minimum roster requirements drive me crazy and there's only two DT's right now on the roster. I have him DT2 on the depth chart but until cuts are made I won't officially change him to a DT... teams will often only keep one DT and EA won't let you release them once you put 3 in that slot. If they release Purcell I usually then actually release Covington, sign him to another team at DT.... then trade him for Purcell... release Purcell into free agency... then I still only have two DT's on Denver. :)
    I have Dawkins as FS3 on the depth chart as of now. I have Muti as LG2 and RG3 behind Wilkinson (could easily change him to RG2 though).
    Thanks for the info, J!
    Aaaannnddd... that's why I hate going through team sites and updating numbers lol. It takes FOREVER.
    FOUR hours later... update available with a huge numbers update and today's transactions.
    Hope to add 3 more rookies tomorrow to make it 190 total.
    Thanks!
    Just added Tre Roberson to Chicago. Almost added Donald Parham Jr to the Chargers but just haven't been happy with the way any have looked yet.
    Hope to add 3 to 5 more rookies tomorrow or Saturday.
    So, I believe I could create the remaining 10 guys to finish the 5th rd. But, I'd need to use 5 of these : Den LT C. Anderson, Cle MLB W. Harvey, TB LOLB K. Daniels, KC CB A. Brown, Atl TE C. Meier, NYG HB J. Hilliman or Det DT K. Strong.
    I assume I would not use Meier but after that I'm not sure. I could see a reason for not using all of the rest. That's the bad part of the limited CAP slots.
    (updated earlier with today's transactions but likely won't create guys tonight... hopefully tomorrow)

    (updated earlier with today's transactions but likely won't create guys tonight... hopefully tomorrow)

    May need to scratch this. Can't believe I'm actually considering this. Guess xAPATHYx13 has inspired me. I've matched up guys to get all the way through the 6th rd, plus 7 guys in the 7th & 4 UDFA's. That'd be a total of 225 rookies. I'm an idiot.
    This would be another 10-12 hours of work so still not sure. But, we'll see if I move forward on this. If I do, I'll definitely put in the description to tweet me if you want someone I created over replaced. As of now, would only replace 7 guys.
    Just letting you guys know what I'm looking at/considering.
    I don't post much but I just want to say thank you so much for these rosters HTown, by far the best I have downloaded post draft in any Madden game and I have downloaded hundreds maybe even thousands trying to get a good franchise mode going.
    If anyone is giving you trouble ignore them.
    Again, thank you.

    lol no, man... no one's giving me trouble. Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying it.
    I've got all the picks through the 6th round on their teams and updated the depth charts. I still need to go through and adjust appearance, equipment and ratings, unfortunately. So no update tonight.
    It might even be Monday. But, I hope to get one out late tomorrow night.
    There will be 224 rookies or 225 if I add UDFA Rodrigo Blankenship to the Colts. Need to find a match for him... the guy I had chosen had pre-recorded audio for his name so I decided not to use him.
    I've "replaced" 7 more players that I created over to go along with the long snappers I previously had replaced. I may replace KC CB A. Brown, NYG, HB J. Hilliman and Cle HB D. Jackson. Those three I haven't decided on yet, but will most likely replace them just to be safe.
    Just keeping you guys posted if you were wondering why I didn't update today/tonight. Can't believe I moved forward on this, but at least it'll have all the picks through the 6th round! (plus 7 picks from the 7th round and either 3 or 4 UDFA's as well).
    Thanks man, that's a lot of work! Since I like getting the franchise right, I usually adjust OVR and pick whose being x-factor or not, setting also the contract realistic before kickstarting, etc.
    Your roster does help me a lot in that way because of the accuracy of the depth chart.
    I've seen one roster on the community (madden21face not to name it) that does have PORTRAITS. While everything else is flawed, that implementation is huge. And i've searched how to do that without any success to add it on top your roster. I think portrait does help in the long run being more realistic and all.
    Do you have any knowledge on how it was done? It is the first time i've seen that.
    Anyway, In the end i'll stick with your roster, since it does have the most realistic feel in the end.
    Thank you so much!
    In answer to my own question about portrait. It does seems that it is only recycled Portrait though. i.e. Joe Burrow is Ryan Finley. So it is what I though, Impossible to add new one!
    Sorry and again good job for your roster!!

    Thanks, man. Glad you're enjoying it.
    Yeah, the pics are cool when they actually look somewhat like the player.
    It's an example of why some prefer a certain roster over another. For some, the most important thing is the accuracy of the ratings. Some, it's the accuracy of the way the player looks. Some, the birthday. Some, don't like creating over any exisiting player.
    It's almost impossible to please everyone.
    Thanks again!
    It's looking like it'll be tomorrow evening, guys. If anything changes I'll post another update.
    Forgot about a little family get together today.
    Will work hard on it tonight.

    Consider me very pleased. I was about to start undertaking this myself and you've saved me all that time.
    Guess I'll use that time now combining the 2004 MLB roster and Bacon's fictional for the minors leagues.
    htown5933
    Made a LOT of progress tonight, guys.
    Very confident the update will be ready no later than tonight. I'll post when it's uploaded!

    Awesome news man can't wait!
    this roster inspired me to try and do a rookie roster but i cant find 255 guys to do and i download a draft class that has all drafted rookies in the class allready
    but my roster has most vets not on game in game
    btw dal cut QB cooper rush today
    OK, guys.... it's up!
    ALL picks through the 6th round, 7 from the 7th round and 4 UDFA's for a total of 225 rookies!!!
    HTOWN5933DRAFT or HTOWN5933DRAFTPT2
    Hope you guys enjoy it!

    Great. Will this be an updated roster with most draft picks/free agency moves?

    Yes, all transactions are updated several times daily and the depth charts are current per CBS Sports, Ourlads, news and just guesstimates at this time.
    Also, I never use retired numbers for the jersey numbers that aren't assigned yet.

    Everything going good HTown? Still looking like tonight or you have any delays?

    What would you say is best way to start with them? Replaying the 2019 schedule or what?
    Edit: I also gave you a shout-out and praise on the roster in my slider thread man!

    Man, honestly some of the other guys can probably help you more here.
    I honestly only play now lol. I know..... "You do all this roster work for play now?!?!?".
    Yes... yes, I do. (crazy, I know)
    Haha no worries man just wondering if you had looked at all. To each his own how they wanna play.
    I'll look into and respond in here tho for anyone else curious. I'm thinking replaying the 2019 schedule would be best tho so that contracts stay and you don't have to deal with another draft class coming in.

    Lol I played so many chises with active rosters that I forgot you don't have a choice but to replay 2019 schedule with a custom roster haha.
    Complete lapse of thinking in my part for a bit there lol.
    Just wanna mention for everyone before you just jump into CFM.
    Antonio Brown is in FA and still a 93ovr, so if that bothers you need to adjust before starting CFM
    Edit: Andrew Luck for some reason shows up in FA after you start CFM but isn't there in Main Menu. IDK but something to know I guess
    Uploaded another update... added Parham to the Chargers. His age shows a year off and birthday shows 2 off but I finally found a big guy I could use with slim legs and that was as close as I could get.
    I know some would rather the birthday be closer and live with the body not looking much like him, but I'm the opposite. Could've used guys with closer birthday's but they would look nothing like Parham.
    Also adjusted Joe Reed's ratings per request. I also must've forgot to adjust his height and weight when I created over an existing player.
    There are a few... maybe 3-5 players, who's weight was off 3-5 pounds that I left as oppsoed to changing because of the way they balloon up/bulk up/entire body mass changes.
    Yo H-town,
    Jalen Reagor, 1st pick for the eagles was issued #18
    Tua also signed with Adidas. If you'd like to update his equipment.
    Thanks again for all your hard work man! 🤙🏽🤙🏽
    HighCmpPct
    Hey HTown, think anyway you might could add Tae Crowder from UGA to the Giants?

    Man, I'm not sure.
    There's quite a few I'd likely add before him, but you never know. I'll try to keep him in mind for sure. (the thing to keep in mind with Parham and Roberson is they weren't added as rookies... I'm really tapped out as far as adding rookies - unless EA created rookies from last year are released like KC releasing Mike Weber and the Jets releasing Jalin Moore... I'll likely use those two at some point soon)
    Another update... added Eno Benjamin back to the roster.
    I still have Jalin Moore to use if he's not claimed tomorrow. Would LIKE to use him as UDFA Sewo Olonilua with the Cowboys. :)
    But, I will probably hold off and see which other 7th rounder has the best chance to make an impact (which team needs someone more in looking at the depth charts... that's always important when it gets down to adding the last few guys).
    Hope you guys are enjoying the roster!
    I might be dumb but how can I create my community share roster that I can download in game? No problem downloading already created rosters and what not just really not sure how to make my own...

    Made a few slight adjustments to several rookie QB's.
    Most notably throw power and/or a tick or two on accuracy and awareness.
    OVR ratings remained the same.
    Update available.
    This is awesome, thanks for this. One quick note, I noticed that Keisean Nixon isn’t on the Raiders

    Unfortunately, EA limits the number of players we can create (112 this year).
    So in order to have additional rookies you have to create over low rated pre-existing rookies from last year (already made by EA).
    Nixon is one i created over. I can definitely "add him back" as a 1 year veteran, which he technically is now. That's what we have to do when we get a request to add back someone who's been used to create a rookie.

    Added Nixon back in for you.
    Update available with A. Carr re-signing with New Orleans.
    I'll likely also add WR V. Bryant back to Dallas tonight.
    I appreciate all your hard work on this. One thing I noticed, was that Patrick Mekari is missing from the Ravens roster now. He played center and started the second half of the season due to Matt Skura getting hurt and played really well. I anticipate him being the starting center this year or at least the backup. I know madden's roster showed him as a backup left guard and didn't rate him very well, (he was maybe a 60 ovr) as he was a undrafted free agent last year, If you could add him back in that would be great since I expect him to be a lock for the 53 roster. I can easily edit him back in, but I just thought I would bring it to your attention though.

    Absolutely. I'll add him back in this afternoon/evening.
    I have a hard-core Ravens fan who messages me on Twitter often, actually for the last few years. I'm surprised he hasn't asked or brought it up to me.
    He'll be back in on the next update later today. Thanks for the feedback!
    Mekari has been added back.
    Also, just couldn't continue on with Awuzie at safety. Had to move him back to CB.
    I did put in at FS2 and SS2 but I'll just have to see it to believe it that he's not one of the two starting CB's. Still too early for me to make that change right now.

    Cooper Krupp #10

    Yes sir, I changed Kupp in yesterday's update. Sorry, I haven't been posting here or on Twitter everytime I update.
    Did update Detroit and Baltimore jersey numbers tonight. I hate leaving Swift (6) and Okudah (1) in single digits. I started to put Swift in 42 and Okudah in 36 but I'll leave them as they'll be in preseason for now.
    Also changed skin tone/face on Mekari so he's back like default.

    Great work on this roster. Having a real blast with it. Love the ratings as well. Quick question. Did you release any draft classes that Correa late with how you rated this year’s rookies. Really wish i could find draft classes built with lower players.
    Thanks for all the hard work on these and keeping them updated.

    No, sorry. I didn't create any draft classes. As crazy as it sounds I don't play CFM.
    Kinda' insane I've made these rosters for the past 6 years or so when I only "play now" lol.
    Glad you're enjoying the roster!

    I understand the Play Now thing completely. In year’s past the game played better there, bu cfm is better this year as far as game play goes.
    I’ve just been editing the draft classes and getting the better players dropped into the mid—low 70s like you did with Tua and crew for this year’s draft.
    Again, great work with this.
    Hey HTown,
    Did you mean to give LT Prince Tega Wanogho (Eagles) 82 speed? Is that supposed to be 72? Just pointing it out! I’ve been using your rosters this time of year for the last 3 or 4 years and man oh man do I appreciate your work. You really add playability to this flawed game. Thanks for all you do!

    Thanks, man. I'm glad you're enjoying it.
    I saw your message and thought "No way, thanks for pointing this out".... but I googled his 40 time - 4.64 seconds - and yep lol. My chart actually calls for an 83 speed lol.
    So I guess I'll leave it. :)
    Thanks again!
    Looks like he ran that at 230 pounds before ever playing football...
    “At the time, Wanogho was a lanky 230 pounds and running a 4.64-second 40-yard dash with no training, he confirmed. But as he grew bigger on the offensive line, his focus on sports transitioned from basketball to football, and he entered Auburn as a 4-star offensive tackle recruit.”
    Source: https://thedraftnetwork.com/articles/prince-tega-wanogho-nfl-combine-2020
    Ratings are certainly subjective but that speed rating really caught my eye because it’d make him one of the fastest OL in the history of Madden, lol! Doesn’t help that he couldn’t work out at the NFL Combine. Cheers, man.

    Ahhh, gotcha. Cool. I'll adjust it and update again later tonight. Thanks again!
    Edit : Wow, looks like draftscout.com still estimated him at a 4.83 (with a 4.74 low and a 4.93 high). Obviously those are estimates - or "guesstimates" lol. A 4.83 would still call for a 77 on my chart. Guess I could roll with the high estimate of the 4.93 and give him a 74. Again, thanks for bringing this up!
    Thank you for taking the time to do this!
    It appears your roster is missing Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who the Lions signed away from the Eagles to probably start at RT. Thanks again!

    For those of you passing on or waiting on M21 I just uploaded my final M20 update.
    I'll grab 21 tomorrow so I won't be on 20 anymore.
    Hope ya'll have enjoyed it. :cheers:

    Thanks for all your work on these. I’m looking forward to starting a new franchise with my Saints. Been too long since I used them in franchise mode.
