It may be too late, but it seems like  players should be given an actual position from the time they are recruited and the depth chart would need to be filled for each specific position. For example, no coach wold recruit a center and then play him at Tackle, so why not instead of having OL recruits having T, G, and C recruits. This would put a stronger emphasis on recruiting the more important Tackles and less on Guards and Centers. Also, instead of LB and DB, why not have players actually be Cornerbacks or Safeties or OLB or MLB. Same thing with DE and DT. Just a thought, seems like it could add a new dimension to recruiting.

We have talked about allowing something similar to what we have in Hardball where you can set a player's position, as well as alternate positions.  What I would expect would be something where you could set someone to OT or C or OG, if they were an OL, and this would just be used on your team roster to help you with organization.  We don't want to limit how you play your players any more than they are now.  If we ever get ratings to be consistent across positions then we could have multiple position players, like a WR/RB or such.  This is something we would really have to sit down and look at how it would be used and the best way to implement it, but it won't be in this update.
