The Madden 20 ratings for the 2019 rookie class are in!
“That’s all type of disrespectful.” Ha! Has a player ever felt that they’re fairly scored on Madden?
Even “Hollywood” Brown ranked as the highest wide receiver in the class, tied for fourth overall, and wasn’t satisfied. His strength rating of 44 wasn’t too his liking. If you see him posting workout videos on Twitter now, know he’s taking a page out of D.K. Metcalf’s book to get that strength score up.
Brown was ranked as the fastest rookie with a speed of 97, and the second-fastest player in the entire game. Among rookies, he has the highest scores in acceleration and agility at 95 and 96, respectively. Now you combine him with Lamar in the game? That should be a cheat code.
Miles Boykin? He got robbed with a 54 in run blocking and he let them know in the reaction video. However, His 71 overall score was good enough to land him at seventh among rookie wide receivers. And an 84 catching rating (second-highest score in the class)? Ravens fans will like to see that.
Curious where the other Ravens rookies fell? Jaylon Ferguson and Justice Hill both earned overall scores of 70, with Iman Lewis-Marshall and Daylon Mack close behind at 67. Ben Powers and undrafted rookie Jaylen Smith rounded out the 60s for the Ravens, at 64 and 61 respectively. Trace McSorely ranked at a 55, despite scoring in the high 80s in speed and acceleration.
Curious how the ratings are produced? ESPN took a deep dive into the process.
But at the end of the day, for these rookies, it’s just cool to be in the game.
