EA Sports has started its annual rollout of new player ratings for Madden NFL. This year, they started with the rookie player ratings for Madden 16. In the upcoming days, EA Sports will release the ratings for top players at each position. Madden 16 is set to be released on August 25, 2015.
The top rookie in Madden 16 is Amari Cooper at 82 OVR. While listed at 78 OVR, Kevin White has the speed and hands to be a very reliable receiver for the Bears. Marcus Mariota already looks like a great “Madden Quarterback”, with great speed and Short/Mid pass accuracy. Vic Beasley can be a great option for user control on defense. His speed, strength, and jump ability could make him fun to use for rushing or zone coverage.
