    Launch Amateur Draft at beginning of scheduled day

    Minor but annoying: the amateur draft starts automatically once you complete the day before. Logically, why doesn't it wait until you advance the calendar to the scheduled day? I'm always having to go back to the calendar, check the results of the last game, look for injuries or players coming off the disabled list, etc. -- all the normal things I do at the end of each period I choose to sim.

    On a related note, why must I see everyone else's draft choices? When drafting I work off of the Depth Chart, so I have to switch back to that each round. What others have done has no effect on my choices. Certainly I should be able to view that information, but I don't see why I am forced to do so.

    Absolutely Agreed on this. 4 Stars

    This has never bothered me, but, you're right, I really don't look at other teams' draft picks. Just who's available.

    I guess I'd like to see a whole new screen for the draft. The top part would show the players who have been drafted and the bottom would show the players available to draft instead of having to switch back and forth.

    Though, incorporating your depth chart in there would be good as well. I keep a depth chart on excel and I do refer to that while drafting

    Added to my suggestion link in my sig.

    Also to add to this have the draft day customizable. I know in real life it june 1 but I hate playing a season get going and have to stop and draft. I'd like to she the draft moved to the off season myself. But that is just me

    It would be best to make a separate thread for this suggestion, as they get lost in other threads, and then this one can stay on topic.
