Madden 22 Draft Class - 2022 NFL Draft on PS5 From jcblayze

The college football season and NFL season are both in full swing, and over on our forums jcblyaze has been hard at work as usual creating full-on draft classes for Madden 22. He finished the 2022 NFL Draft class weeks ago, but I wanted to feature it now because he’s closing in on finishing up a 2023 draft class as well. This means there will be two full-on classes available on PS5 (with hopefully two more still to come).

The community creations can be buggy at times on Madden Share, but these classes are worth the potential headache based on how much the community seems to enjoy them. Plus, it’s very rare to find a full seven-round class on consoles that even approaches real life results.

Madden 22 Draft Class

How To Download

  • PSN ID: BigGargamel
  • File Name: SGRFULL450MAN2022

Other Information

  • All 450 players are real. That means heights, weights, schools, faces, and equipment have been adjusted.
  • Jersey numbers are their college numbers, assuming it falls in line with the NFL’s new jersey number policy.
  • You still have to scout here. There are sleepers, busts, and gems hidden throughout even though this is based on real players.
  • There are no X-Factor players, only a couple superstars, and a handful of stars. These players will fit right in with your existing roster.
  • The 2022 class is hopefully the first of four classes.

Bottom Line

First, a reminder to EA and 2K that they still need to find a way to allow us to bring draft classes/custom rosters/etc. from one version of the game to the next because too much hard work has to be re-done year after year to create these custom edits all over again. With these rosters, while I’m sure jcblayze enjoys creating these rosters, life would be much easier if he could take the template he already created the year prior and just work on it once again. It remains the missing link in many of these sports games, with The Show‘s old system being as close as we’ve gotten on consoles to a gold standard.

Beyond that, you can support jcblayze by subscribing to his YouTube channel, or donating on his site. If you want to see who is in the 2022 NFL Draft class, you can check out the video above. If you want to see some of the players who will be in the 2023 NFL Draft class, then head here to see the list of names to this point.

Lastly, I just want to thank jcblayze once again for doing all the hard work here. The community tries to help out where possible, but this is a herculean effort to put together this many players in back-to-back years, and with the new scouting update it gives these sorts of classes a little more life than we previously had with them last year. Some people do believe the generated classes end up creating more “realistic” results than these custom ones, but if you’re looking for the most “realistic” rosters on a console, this will generally be your best option.

  1. I think I used your draft classes for my cloud Franchise last year, actually. I recognize that PSN ID, lol.
    Question for you: when rating the draft class players, do you consider how the rookie player population compares to how Madden ratings adjustors (as they call themselves) typically rate incoming rookies, and/or how much talent the in-game draft class generator typically produces? In the past when I've used custom draft classes I've found that the authors are a bit generous with player ratings (especially the Speed rating with running backs, wide receivers, and cornerbacks), which results in accelerated league OVR inflation down the line.

    The default ratings are wayyyyy overblown. You have a ton of guys in the UDFA pool with 70+ ratings. If you look at history, only a handful of non round one guys end up ever being all that productive long term.

    I created the above spreadsheet/chart and try to base mine off that. I mean, it will never be perfect but I think rookies slide right into where they would be in real life. Meaning most first rounders are starters, second rounders are backups, and the rest of the guys are just fighting for non special teams roles. You don't see any highly rated late round guys in that page I posted above, so I don't deviate from that too much.
    Anyways, if you check mine out please let me know what you find out. I'm always down for suggestions and feedback. Thank you.
    First class is great!! Can’t wait for the next 3. Great work.
    I only see one small fix. 5th round CB Elijah Blades transferred out of Texas A&M. He’s playing at Florida this season.
    What’s up with the kickers? Is the first guy the only real player?

    With everything you stated do you have some later rounds guys that can end up being stars or starters built in. Although it doesn't happen often it does happen. I'm not saying they should end up being in the 99s or anything, just key contributors...

    Thanks! It's so hard to keep up with the transfer portal. These guys move at an alarming rate now.
    And for the kickers...is it showing N/A for the colleges? There's literally no way I can fix that bug (that's been in these draft classes for years, thanks EA). It used to happen to all players randomly, now it's confined just to the kickers, no matter how many times I fix it, it still shows up when you download the class.

    How many classes are you making? 3 or 4
    Will you be updating us on those too?

    His plan is to do up to the 2025 class.

    Appreciate the work you put in to get the class done to this level of detail. Look forward to using these when the scouting update drops.:59:

    Welp, might as well get started. Scouting update was pushed back until October. Bleh.

    Yes sir. I have another thread on this forum where I dump all of my info into. Working on 2023 right now.

    I'm not going to continue work on my classes until the share is fixed. Here's a video of me spending six whole minutes trying to simply FIND my class on the share
    https://youtu.be/gw9h3jLHYAk
    If anyone has actually been able to get these please let me know.
    How embarrassing.

    I just did username and searched your username and it came up. Downloaded no problem. Going through the regular menu is a crapshoot.
    I’ve downloaded your file. You can get them easier by searching. Also trying at non peak times.
    I’m from the Uk and can move around the share easily right now (early morning UK, 2am EST!)
    Please don’t give up!!!
    Your file is now in the draft class section without searching. For some reason uploads take a while to appear. Should hopefully see some more download it now.
    As I said in my previous post it works fine when the load on the servers isn’t great.
    Hopefully they fix it!!

    It says your file has been taken down again man

    Visible for me, in fact looking at downloads it’s had over 100 in the last 24 hours (presumably because it’s now made it to the main draft class screen and doesn’t need searching for).

    It’s viable but when I go to download it I get the removed message

    Click on view creators files and download that way, just worked ok for me.
    Madden share is buggy, keep trying and it works eventually.
    Like I’ve said previously downloads have dramatically increased for this file over the weekend.
    The Community Share Files section in Madden has been bad for years, so I would not hold my breath that they are going to fix it this year.
    If it says it was removed, you just need to keep trying until it works. It has taken me days in the past to download things in previous Maddens. This year, sometimes no file shows up in Community Share.
    Again, unfortunately the only thing you can do is sit there and repeatedly try and download a file.

    Any update on the 2023 class? Is he still working on them?

    I thought I saw that he had the flu. He might still be dealing with that. His classes are high quality.

    Yeah they are. The first one is sweet. Last I saw he was stopping bc of the issues with file share. The EA file share is tricky just have to keep trying until you get it. They aren’t going to fix it with a patch. So I hope he kept going. Still got a few weeks before the big franchise update.

    Great work on the class ! Feel like some of the SPD ratings are on the low end but looks awesome, love the attention to detail with equipment & everything else. For example Stingley is said to run a low 4.3 40 with a 42 inch vert & 4.2-4.3 shuttle time, dude is a freak. Just feel like some of the higher end athletes should stand out more.

    Different thread? Did he ever drop 2023?
    Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    No not yet I'm not sure if he's still working on it, he hasn't posted on the other thread in nearly two weeks. That last post did say he was still working on it, but it's been crickets since.
