This one is almost unmissable. Go to draft champions from the main menu and select solo draft. Pick your head coach and then it is time to start selecting cards. Around 3-4 times during the draft you will have the option to draft red "elite" players. While highlighting these players, it will show you at the bottom of the screen your depth chart showcasing your current players at that position. Anytime your draftable player is 15 points or more above your current player, draft that player to unlock this achievement.

I got this on my first solo draft. My stock team had Geno Smith as my QB with a rating of 72. The very first set of 3 players to draft from came up and one of them was John Elway, a 91 rated QB. I drafted Elway immediately (19 points higher than Smith) and this unlocked right away.
