I know on last gen they would all run the same based on their rating height did not matter.

I agree. Some of these tall guys need to have their speed lowered. Not so sure about Randy Moss though. How many guys can keep up with him without help over the top?

I dont see why this should be changed. It makes sense to leave it be. Its more realistic. Thats why a lot of shorter players in the game are faster than taller players. Thats why some players dont draft high because theyre short. Taller is always better in the NFL. Same goes for Madden.

I am pretty sure they are rated higher because they are faster than others in real life. No reason a short guy with a 92 rating should not be faster than a tall guy with a 90 speed rating.

Carolina Panther, Steve Smith, would have something to say about that.

As poster below me points out. It might make your times faster.... but that is what you are rated on.. your times.

Height does affect speed, but the speed rating is given based on how fast the player actually is, and so guys with the same rating should run the same speed.

To a lesser degree, DeSean Jackson and Santana Moss would also like to chime in on that subject. There's plenty of small dudes who run fast as hell. Think of guys like Sproles, or hell, any RB for that matter.
