Madden 20 Face of the Franchise Questions
To round out the NFL Combine, you're placed before the media, with a series of questions. When you're asked about playing for the New York Giants, select 'I'd be lucky' to raise your team player rating.
The next question is meant to assess your biggest quality as an NFL QB. Out of the two options, we'd recommend selecting 'calm under pressure,' which raises your rating as a leader. If you'd slightly raise your 'entertainer' level, choose the option for you to boast that you can 'read an NFL defense.'
Next, you're asked about critics who say you're not yet ready to play in the NFL. For this question, although the option they're right might not seem like the correct choice, being able to critique yourself raises your leader rating again.
Madden 20 Face of the Franchise Draft
The end goal of Madden 20's Face of the Franchise mode is to be drafted number one overall (obviously). To begin doing this, you need to win both games you play as a college QB. This means winning the semi-final, and the National Championship final games.
Secondly, you need to be a team player throughout your time playing in college. This means selecting the option to defer credit to your teammates at halftime during the semi-final game. Then, you need to 'agree' with Isaiah Streets if he asks you to get him the ball more during the Championship final game, and then make sure you complete at least several passes to him in the rest of the game.
Succeeding at the NFL Combine is of paramount importance. There are 24 drills in total, and how many you pass will generally dictate which team you're drafted by. Note that you can never draft by NFL teams with star quarterbacks already, like the Patriots, Packers, Colts, and others.
It all comes down to being invited to the NFL Draft. If you get invited to the Draft, you'll be drafted to either the Oakland Raiders or the New York Giants. However, if you don't get the invite to the Draft, you'll be drafted by either Miami or Cincinnati. You can never go undrafted in Face of the Franchise.
