You know that besides draft day and signing their first NFL contract, there’s another day that all rookies wait for: what will their Madden game rating be?
A few days ago, EA Sports revealed a video featuring some top rookies’ reactions to their Madden 15 ratings (see below). But before they showed them their overall rating, they asked them to predict what they thought they should be. Some of their answers were pretty comical. Especially Johnny Manziel’s answer. I’m pretty sure he was kidding when he said he thought he should be hovering anywhere around 88 to 92.
Well, today EA Sports revealed they Top 10 rookies, and unfortunately for Manziel, he didn’t make the cut, which means he didn’t come close to his predictions.
Here’s the Madden 15 Top Rookie Rating List:
- Jadeveon Clowney, Houston Texans OLB – 83 overall
- Greg Robinson, St. Louis Rams OL – 83 overall
- Khalil Mack, Oakland Raiders OLB – 81 overall
- Jake Matthews, Atlanta Falcons OL – 81 overall
- Sammy Watkins, Buffalo Bills WR – 80 overall
- Calvin Pryor, New York Jets S – 79 overall
- Aaron Donald, St. Louis Rams DL – 79 overall
- Haha Clinton-Dix, Green Bay Packers S – 79 overall
- Taylor Lewan, Tennesee Titans OL – 79 overall
- Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars QB – 78 overall
