Another year of football means another year of EA Sports Madden. The popular video game released the top rookie receiver ratings on Friday morning, and San Francisco 49ers first-round pick Brandon Aiyuk came in tied for sixth-best for all rookies. Here is a look at the ratings:
91 speed isn’t bad for Jerry Jeudy but I think he should be 92 or 93 speed. His play speed is legit. Also thought Higgins played faster than 87 speed. He ran away from enough guys. I’d have him at like 88 or 89 but keep acc at 86 pic.twitter.com/d4DNZRosq6— CrockTIME (@eric_crocker) July 10, 2020
Aiyuk is tied for the fourth-fastest speed and has the third-best agility. All of these rankings seem relatively low, except for Ruggs’ speed. Apparently Ceedee Lamb has kicking experience? Are there any rankings on that list that you disagree with? Do people still play Madden? These ratings will be adjusted throughout the season, so hopefully Aiyuk is near the top come mid-season.
I heard a hot take recently and, based on fit and an injury to Deebo Samuel that leaves his status in question, that has me coming around on this take. A friend told me he thinks Aiyuk outperforms Deebo’s rookie year. I’d love to hear your thoughts and reasoning on whether or not Aiyuk could reach 900 yards in 2020.
