    1. In order to streamline the process of feedback on the site, we've decided to introduce a small committee that will take comments, feedback, and general ideas for both the sim and on community issues and present all of the most pertinent ones to Soluna in a more streamlined fashion. This functionality will mostly replace the current private feedback system, although this will remain enabled in order to allow for people to share ideas that are best shared with Soluna privately and not with the community. Soon, a new forum will be created called Committee Feedback (PRIVATE) that will function effectively in the same way as private feedback does now - only you and the members of the committee will be able to see it. If you wish to give feedback at a given time, you should just create a thread called "[your username]'s Committee Feedback" in this forum. This is where you should generally now share your feedback in regards to the sim, as stated above. The function of the committee will be to review all of the posts made in feedback, respond to each post in a timely manner giving feedback on the potential feasibility and implementation of any ideas and/or a response about addressing any comments made that raise pertinent issues. Once a month, the committee will prepare and give a general overview of the feedback given by the committee to myself and Soluna, hold a discussion on both ideas and comments on the community, and then make a public post summarizing any feedback and allowing for discussion in areas they feel the community at large should discuss. We're hoping that this will make communication between the admin side and the community side smoother and clearer. If joining this committee is something you'd be interested in, send me a PM and I'll ask you a few questions in regards to the potential role. It will be a small committee and won't require too much of a time commitment, but I'd prefer that if you wish to join you can commit to staying at least reasonably active in responding to people's posts and being able to participate in the summarizing aspect on a monthly basis. Anyone is welcome to join if they're interested, including conference commissioners - just message me and I'll give you further details. tl;dr: Unless you think it needs to be viewed only by Soluna, please use the new Committee Feedback (PRIVATE) forum to give comments, feedback, and ideas about the sim and community. If you want to join the committee, please read this whole post and not just the tl;dr.
    2. INTRODUCTION The 2022 NFLHC Draft continues to approach quicker than ever as trade season has begun to heat up - if you're the Giants, at least - and players have started to re-sign new contracts with their teams or declare free agency. While free agents are nice, the core of any successful NFLHC team is built is through the draft. They do say that defense wins championships, so in the 2nd edition of the Jumbro Post™ we're bringing you our top 5 favorite defensive prospects at each position before any of that combine or pro day nonsense. This is a collaborative post between me and @Broletariat - all research, writing, composition, and glory is shared. INTERIOR DEFENSIVE LINEMEN 1. DE Timothy Key 6-2 240 R Florida [Contain] 83 2021 stats: 38 tackles, 10 for loss, 13.5 sacks, 1 FF, 1 FR Projection: Top 5 2. DE Parker Holmes 6-3 247 R Tennessee [Contain] 81 2021 stats: 45 tackles, 11 for loss, 15.5 sacks Projection: Mid-1st 3. DT Shamar Ware 6-5 278 R Penn State [2-Gap] 82 2021 stats: 31 tackles, 7 for loss, 6.5 sacks Projection: Mid-1st 4. DT Marlon Bailey 6-7 322 R Akron [2-Gap] 80 2021 stats: 20 tackles, 1 for loss, 7 sacks Projection: Late 1st 5. DT Omar Adcock 6-5 311 R Fresno State [1-Gap] 80 2021 stats: 16 tackles, 3 for loss, 5 sacks Projection: Late 1st/Early 2nd Just missed: DE Miles Slater 6-1 248 R Washington [Contain] 80 This interior defensive line class has three top tier prospects in Key, Holmes, and Ware. If the Chargers don't manage to trade down, Key is a serious contender to go #1 overall. He's perhaps the best 3-4 end to come out since Tyler Jones. While Holmes, a senior JUCO transfer, has stats that are very impressive on the surface, Ware's seem just alright - but both were Heisman semifinalists this season. Bailey, Adcock, and Slater were all very close, but pass rush productivity from a further interior position gave an advantage to the defensive tackles. Compared to prior classes, this is definitely an above average and potentially elite interior line class. EDGE RUSHERS 1. DE Khairi Bryant 5-10 263 R Ohio State [Blitz] [0] 83 2021 stats: 46 tackles, 12 for loss, 19.5 sacks Projection: Top 5 2. DE Sebastian Smallwood 6-1 254 R Alabama [Blitz] 82 2021 stats: 42 tackles, 10 for loss, 15 sacks, 1 FR Projection: Top 10 3. OLB Alexander Burton 6-1 237 R LSU [Blitz] [+1/C] 78 2021 stats: 48 tackles, 5 for loss, 7 sacks Projection: Early 2nd 4. DE Lucas Benton 5-10 235 R Michigan [Blitz] 78 2021 stats: 24 tackles, 2 for loss, 14 sacks, 1 FR Projection: Early 2nd 5. OLB Phillip Davenport 5-11 226 R Arizona [Blitz] 80 2021 stats: 12 tackles Projection: Late 2nd/Early 3rd Just missed: OLB Devin Goss 5-11 247 R Michigan [Blitz] [0] 76, DE Cory Hall 5-10 237 R Penn State [Blitz] 76 2022 is a very top-heavy EDGE class with two obvious top prospects in Bryant and Smallwood, with a fairly serious dropoff thereafter into the second and third rounds. However, because of this gap, expect a pass-rush needy team to reach on a guy like Phillip Davenport or Lucas Benton to fill an immediate roster need in the last first or very early second rounds. You may also see a team with this need try to drop out of their mid-late first round pick to target one of these guys instead. Both of the big two in this group look to have elite potential, and should be off the board before we reach pick 10. LINEBACKERS 1. ILB Tyrese Thompson 6-3 228 R Auburn [Mike] 82 2021 stats: 33 tackles, 1 for loss, 1 sack, 1 pass defensed, 1 FF, 1 FR Projection: Mid-1st 2. ILB Markus Golden 6-5 240 R Ole Miss [Mike] 81 2021 stats: 29 tackles, 2 for loss, 1 sack, 1 pass defensed Projection: Mid/Late 1st 3. OLB Jabari Fletcher 6-5 239 R Texas [Coverage] 81 2021 stats: 9 tackles, 2 for loss, 3.5 sacks Projection: Late 1st 4. ILB Adam Lovelace 6-2 234 R Vanderbilt [Mike] 80 2021 stats: 62 tackles, 5 for loss, 1 sack Projection: Early 2nd 5. OLB Evan Walsh 5-11 218 R Nevada [Coverage] 81 2021 stats: 18 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 1 interception, 2 passes defensed Projection: Early 2nd Just missed: ILB Kieron Brooks 6-1 239 R Charlotte [Mike] 81, OLB Patrick Haines 6-2 244 R Utah [Coverage] 78  This year’s linebacker class appears a consistent one, with value to be found throughout the first two days of the draft. Led by ILB Tyrese Thompson from Auburn, who we expect to be off the board before the halfway point in round one, the 2021 class also presents a few nice outside backers for 4-3 schemes in Jabari Fletcher and Evan Walsh. Expect round two to feature as many as five linebacker selections - someone like Brooks could also sneak into the first round with a proper combine and pro day performance. CORNERBACKS 1. CB Kenyon Justice 6-1 177 R Auburn [Zone Coverage] 82 2021 stats: 7 tackles, 4 interceptions, 1 pass defensed Projection: Top 10 2. CB Kamari Cheatham 5-10 221 R NC State [Man Coverage] 80 2021 stats: 12 tackles, 5 interceptions, 2 passes defensed Projection: Mid/Late 1st 3. CB Tre'Davious Dikes 6-2 199 R Oregon [Man Coverage] 79 2021 stats: 15 tackles, 6 interceptions, 5 passes defensed, 1 touchdown Projection: Late 1st/Early 2nd 4. CB Kyle Cunningham 6-4 183 R Baylor [Zone Coverage] 80 2021 stats: 4 tackles, 1 interception Projection: Late 1st/Early 2nd 5. CB Bradley Spurlock 5-10 188 R Kansas [Man Coverage] 78 2021 stats: 13 tackles, 1 for loss, 5 interceptions, 2 passes defensed Projection: Mid-2nd Just missed: CB Levern White 5-9 162 R Toledo [Man Coverage] 78, CB Logan Holmes 5-11 201 R Illinois [Zone Coverage] 77 Outside of one sure thing, this corner class seems to have a lot of question marks and risky picks. Justice, a former JUCO transfer, was one of the stars of Auburn's stifling defense and seems a sure thing. Cheatham, Dikes, and Cunningham all come with their own question marks from general coverage ability for Dikes to a worrying dropoff in interceptions as a senior for Cunningham. There could be some nice potential steals available at later junctures such as Spurlock and Holmes, but Justice seems to be the only corner available with truly elite potential. SAFETIES 1. FS Seth Scott 6-2 193 R Colorado [Man Coverage] 81 2021 stats: 17 tackles, 1 interception, 2 passes defensed Projection: Late 1st 2. SS Shaq Turner 5-9 192 R Texas State [Zone Coverage] 82 2021 stats: 15 tackles, 1 for loss, 1 interception, 6 passes defensed Projection: Late 1st/Early 2nd 3. FS Cameron Bowden 5-10 216 R Arizona [Man Coverage] 80 2021 stats: 23 tackles, 2 interceptions, 6 passes defensed, 1 FF, 1 FR Projection: Mid-2nd 4. FS Khalil Dennis 6-2 219 R Vanderbilt [Zone Coverage] 81 2021 stats: 4 tackles, 1 interception, 1 pass defensed Projection: Mid/Late 2nd 5. FS Damani Sheppard 5-11 214 R Stanford [Man Coverage] 79 2021 stats: 27 tackles, 2 interceptions, 4 passes defensed Projection: Late 2nd/Early 3rd Just missed: FS Jeremy Easter 6-1 195 R Duke [Man Coverage] 79, SS Eddie Burks 6-1 191 R Auburn [Man Coverage] [+1/C] 80 This safety class, while having been noted for depth concerns, also has a serious lack of star power at the top. Seth Scott gets the top slot by sheer virtue of his incredible 2020 All-American 9 interception season, but outside of that he's seemed relatively pedestrian. Turner's 6 PD from the SS spot is impressive, but without any distinguishing athletic traits it's tough to say that any of the players at safety has star potential this year. GMs might be better off looking for something like being a captain as a distinguishing point this draft.

    6. After living and establishing myself in Cape Town over the last 3.5 years, I've basically figured out that it makes way more sense to leave than it does to stay. It sucks because I do really love living here but at the same time I'm excited to finally get my degree and move on with my life. Unfortunately that means packing up and leaving and I have no idea where the hell I'm going. It's nerve-wracking but in general I am happy I took the plunge and did my degree here, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I've gotten to But as to where I'm going with the next phase of my life, it looks like I'm heading back to good ol 'Murica, likely to yet another place where I'll have to start all over. We'll see, I guess.

    8. All the picks should be updated here - Raiders and Eagles haven't traded any of their picks, so I'll just go through and update those properly following the Super Bowl results.

      I know it's been precedent of late to just give the job to whoever applies first, but some level of seniority/experience does generally apply to more coveted jobs, i.e. one with playoff recruiting points next season

    16. Not a huge fan. The distribution of the teams is likely to be awkward, and with them being thrown in to the regular recruiting pool that will dilute things. The current state of activity also doesn't really lend itself to adding more human controlled teams I think. If they were CPU-controlled then maybe but I think it's okay in its current state. I don't think no one cares about FCS in its current state, there's just not really much to say about the results since we don't really know too much about the rosters/dynamics. The information is still useful though.

      Top Running Back or Top Wide Receiver

      In a vacuum I'd rather have someone like Sean Jenkins. You can technically win Super Bowls with a Vaughan Abraham as the centerpiece (trust me I know ) but I think generally requires less resources to win built around an elite receiver than built around an elite runningback, and you'll also get more longevity as a bonus.
