NFL Rookies React to Their ‘Madden ’16’ Ratings (Video)
Most NFL rookies probably aren’t hurting for confidence—at least not the ones drafted in the first couple of rounds. Of course, that confidence may slowly get chipped away at as the pre-season starts and the training camp rituals remind them that they’re the low men on the totem pole.
