In order to unlock MUT draft in Madden 23, players will need to do a bit of leveling up. To be more precise, you will need to get to level 4 to be able to unlock MUT draft. A fairly tall order as if you ask most players about leveling, they’ll tell you that by level 2, you’ll more than likely have already completed all the madden challenges that are supposed to help players level up.

Conversely, players are also able to complete challenges under the stats page.
