There’s no denying how much fun NFL Sundays are.
The hard hits, the immaculate passes, the strength and will of the players;
it’s always fun to kick back and watch the games with a couple of your closest friends.

But what happens on Tuesday when you want your fill of NFL
action? That’s where EA Sports Madden video game series comes to the rescue.
One of the most successful sports video games franchises, it’s always a good

Typically, the game excites with its life-like graphics.
Part of the excitement also centers around new rookies that are added to the
game. The expectation would be that the top pick every year would be the
highest rated rookie in the game. Well, not so fast.

Jalen Ramsey, the defensive back from Florida State, garners
that coveted spot after being drafted 5th overall in this past year’s
NFL Draft.

Ramsey will have a 93 speed rating—one of the fastest
ratings in the entire game. Ramsey will also have these high ratings; 94
acceleration rating, 90 agility rating, 85 man coverage rating, and 84 zone
coverage rating.

If you want to have the upper hand in playing against your
friends, certainly use Jalen Ramsey to the best of your ability. He’s fast,
agile, and good in coverage. So don’t be fooled if your friend thinks Odell
Beckham Jr. will have a field day against you just because you selected to play
with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The second ranked rookie is highly touted running back
Ezekiel Elliot, who will have a 92 speed rating. Third, left tackle Ronnie
Stanley, who will have an 86 pass blocking rating. Fourth, kicker Roberto Aguay,
who will have a 92 kicking power rating. Fifth, left end Joey Bosa, who will
have a pursuit rating of 84.

Do you have an issue with this rating? Would you have
selected someone else to be the top-rated rookie? Let us know down below.
