Breaking Down the Top 10 Rookies in Madden NFL 20

In the latest Gridiron Notes, Associate Designer Andre Weingarten and Producer/Ratings Guru, Dustin Smith break down the top 10 rookies in Madden NFL 20.

The list is based on overall rating, and in cases where there are ties at an overall number, the Madden Ratings Adjustor team discussed and ranked those players.

We’ve posted the top 3 below, but read the full breakdown at the official site.

3. NICK BOSA – RE 49ers: (78 OVR)

At 79, Bosa’s Finesse Move is the best among all rookies. Thanks to his elite burst and bend for the position, combined with an incredibly refined pass rush plan, Bosa is a day 1 plug and play starter in base or pass rushing downs.

2. ED OLIVER JR. – DT Bills: (79 OVR)

Oliver’s athletic profile is unreal for an interior player, as he has the speed of a Linebacker, the agility of an edge rusher, and the strength of a DT. In a role that will capitalize on his strengths, Oliver’s best football is definitely ahead of him.

1. QUINNEN WILLIAMS – DT Jets: (80 OVR)

His 81 block shed is the best in the rookie class & T-14th at DT. Despite only 1 year as a starter, Williams obliterated anyone in his path. He can win with speed or power, and has a nose for the ball-carrier in run defense. He comes in as our best rookie, and should be an immediate impact player for the Jets.

  1. I'll get this out of the way for everyone since it happens every year:
    "Most of these guys are rated too high and everyone my team drafted is rated too low. "
    They've done a great job with this and the ratings are great compared to last year. I love how unapologetic they've been about ratings being lower than people expect and I hope they remain that way. They're also doing an excellent job of being transparent about ratings. Swami even posted on twitter asking for people to submit feedback about players they thought were rated too low and he went through and explained why they were low. That's huge.
    I posted this in another thread, but i thought Kyler's speed was a bit too low, but he explained how they got the rating they did and what went into that process. That level of transparency is awesome.
    Also- Drew Lock and Will Grier are rated higher than Daniel Jones, which is awesome. I love that they're actually evaluating these players instead of just going based on draft position. That is right in line with what many scouts said before the draft. Wouldn't be surprised if Grier has a low dev trait because he is seen as more pro-ready but he has a lower ceiling than many of these guys.

    umm Daniel Jones isn't a top 10 rookie?sigh gonna be a long season

    I'm sorry he probably isn't even top 20 in real life. QBs are usually non-functional in year one. That's why the Mayfield's and Wilson's of the world are such huge boons to teams. Maybe Jones will be. But it's not like Eli is terrible.

    Well Giants fans have Eli better in the video game than he really is anymore in real life so if they think Daniel Jones should be better then it's really a wash..
