It's worth noting that EA had a delay rolling out the Color Smash promo so you might have to sit tight a little while for the promo to reach your console!

BEAST: This card will be a ridiculous weapon

This year the NFL Draft program is enormous, but it carries one 99 OVR master that you can get almost immediately.

It's a monster Cam Newton card.

To get him you'll need to complete a set (we'll get to that later). It's a star card with 99 play action, 98 throw on the run, 97 short accuracy, and 88 speed.

QB KILLER: Von Miller was taken #2 behind Cam in 2011

Cam Newton's #1 pick draft status gets him the 99 OVR card, but there is a new 97 OVR card for players taken in the rest of the first round.

Not every team is represented, but nearly every position is and there is something here for every squad. Let's see who gets the 97 OVR cards.

DRAFT GOD: Earn the rewards you need to go get the Heroes you want

Along with all those cards there will be a seven-day limited-time House Rules event.

At 30 wins you get a 98 OVR NAT Draft Class '20 Player, that's a choice between #2-5 from the 2020 NFL Draft. 35 wins and up is 100 Trophies and 15,000 coins.

2020 NFL Draft Class

The first round of this year's NFL Draft will be entering MUT.

The top five picks (Joe Burrow, Chase Young, and maybe even Isaiah Simmons) will be entering the game immediately. The #1 pick will be 99 OVR, with #2-5 98 OVR.

The rest of the first round will be added sometime on Friday 24 April. All of them will be earned through sets.

LADDER UP: It will take some doing to get Cam

The sets for this promo are quite complicated.

Through out the solo challenges and via packs you'll earn Draft Picks players. These are lower OVR players of the 31 Heroes and 1 Master that can then be put into sets to earn higher versions.

It is those higher versions that will then go into the final set to get the Heroes or Master.

WHAT DO I NEED: You'll have to build a bank to earn enough cards

So, you'll need two 96 OVR Draft Pick players to earn one 98 OVR Draft Pick Cam Newton, and then two of those to earn the 99 OVR...

At least you can add any of these Draft Pick players to your lineup!

There is also the Draft Diamond Collectibles.


These items are earned in solo challenges or House Rules and can get you a 97 OVR NAT Draft Hero and an 97 OVR NAT '20 Draft player. This will be the best path to take if you just want that 97 JJ Watt to add to your power up.
