Introducing MUT RANK - a web app to help find players for your scheme

In Connected Careers in the "Schemes" menu there are a few default play styles that you can set for your teams players. Some of these may be more useful then others, but its a start point for some ideas for categories. These is what these categories are called in the game and the attributes that the description says are important for that type of player. These are EA's descriptions, not mine.
