In sports video games, rookies are as big of a mystery as in real sports.
Some rookies come in and play exceptionally well, others come into the big leagues with a lot of hype and fall flat.
Rating rookies in sports video games such as Madden can't be easy. You are basically tasked with putting a number on the unknown. It's easy to assign a speed rating to rookies, but much harder to determine how accurate of a mid-range passer they are in the NFL game.
For basketball, it's easy to tell how good of a shooter someone is -- but it's impossible to tell if they will be able to shoot that well in the pros with a faster game and better players.
Rookies will remain an enigma in pro sports forever -- and in sports video games they'll be the source of great debate for years to come.
