Picking an NFL Madden 21 Team: Favorite Team or Fate?

While you can choose schools in college, the NFL draft works a little differently. Besides your performance at the combine, during the pre-draft press conference, your player will be asked if you have any wishes about where you would like to land. This is where you will have the opportunity to choose between randomizing your draft pick or forcing your favorite team to take you. 

If you choose to leave it up to the football gods to decide where it is that you will land, where you get drafted will depend entirely on how you played in college. You could be picked as high as a top 1st rounder or fall into the later rounds. If you’re someone who likes to take chances, and you don’t care to play for your favorite team, roll the dice and see where you land. However, if you’re the more predictable type that wants a stable and reliable environ, go with your favorite team and lead them to NFL glory!
