With the brand-spanking new season right around the corner, rookies try to guess their rating for Madden NFL 16.
By Robby Sabo
With each new edition of the ever so popular Madden franchise releasing a game comes new traditions.
One that lives in infamy comes with injuries. New York Giants wide-receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will try to overcome the “Madden Curse.”
Another, newer tradition comes in the form of gathering up rookies and having them guess what their rating will be as they make their professional football video game debut. With the NFL and Madden NFL 16 just around the corner, this is exactly what EA Sports just did for us.
Due to the idea that most of these guys carry elephant-like egos, they’ll guess outrageous ratings numbers.
Take Indianapolis Colts rookie wide receiver Phillip Dorsett for example. Although he realizes only the few and talented warrant overall ratings over 90, he ridiculously pegged himself as a 95-rating.
Other rookies who made an appearance in the video were New York Jets’ Devin Smith, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Jameis Winston, Chicago Bears’ Kevin White, Jacksonville Jaguars’ T.J. Yeldon, Oakland Raiders’ Amari Cooper, St. Louis Rams’ Todd Gurley, Cleveland Browns’ Duke Johnson, Atlanta Falcons’ Tevin Coleman, Tennessee Titans’ Marcus Mariota and Pittsburgh Steelers’ Sammie Coates.
