Madden Ratings Are Out for Top 2016 Draft Picks (Pics)

madden ratings 2016 nfl draft

The 2016 NFL Draft just finished, but EA Sports already has Madden ratings for every player taken in the first round.

Of course, they’re not necessarily the ratings that will appear in Madden 17. They’re the ratings from Madden Ultimate Team mode.

If you’re not familiar with Madden Ultimate Team (or MUT) mode, basically it combines regular Madden NFL game play with card collecting and fantasy football. The idea is that users buy “packs” of virtual collector cards using either real-world money or in-game coins. Then they swap, sell, or buy cards to assemble a kind of fantasy team.

Since 2012, MUT mode has come out with “draft packs” featuring virtual cards for players who just got drafted. But there are two kinds of cards: regular cards with ratings close to what these rookies’ abilities are right now, and “elite” cards with ratings that predict how good the players will be in the future.

So, ready to see how good your team’s new first round draft pick will be in Madden Ultimate Team? Well, here you go:

1. QB Jared Goff (Rams): 84 regular, 95 “Future Elite”

2. QB Carson Wentz (Eagles) 84 regular, 95 “Future Elite”

3. DE Joey Bosa (Chargers): 84 regular, 95 “Future Elite”

4. RB Ezekiel Elliott (Cowboys): 84 regular, 95 “Future Elite”

5. CB Jalen Ramsey (Jaguars): 84 regular, 95 “Future Elite”

6. LT Ronnie Stanley (Ravens): 83 regular, 94 “Future Elite”

7. DE DeForest Buckner (49ers): 83 regular, 94 “Future Elite”

8. OT Jack Conklin (Titans): 83 regular, 94 “Future Elite”

9. OLB Leonard Floyd (Bears): 83 regular, 94 “Future Elite”

10. CB Eli Apple (Giants): 83 regular, 94 “Future Elite”

11. CB Vernon Hargreaves III (Bucs): 82 regular, 93 “Future Elite”

12. DT Sheldon Rankins (Saints): 82 regular, 93 “Future Elite”

13. OT Laremy Tunsil (Dolphins): 82 regular, 93 “Future Elite”

14. S Karl Joseph (Raiders): 82 regular, 93 “Future Elite”

15. WR Corey Coleman (Browns): 82 regular, 93 “Future Elite”

16. OT Taylor Decker (Lions): 81 regular, 92 “Future Elite”

17. S Keanu Neal (Falcons): 81 regular, 92 “Future Elite”

18. C Ryan Kelly (Colts): 81 regular, 92 “Future Elite”

19. DE Shaq Lawson (Bills): 81 regular, 92 “Future Elite”

20. OLB Darron Lee (Jets): 81 regular, 92 “Future Elite”

21. WR Will Fuller (Texans): 80 regular, 91 “Future Elite”

22. WR Josh Doctson (Washington): 80 regular, 91 “Future Elite”

23. WR Laquon Treadwell (Vikings): 80 regular, 91 “Future Elite”

24. CB William Jackson III (Bengals): 80 regular, 91 “Future Elite”

25. CB Artie Burns (Steelers): 79 regular, 90 “Future Elite”

26. QB Paxton Lynch (Broncos): 79 regular, 90 “Future Elite”

27. DT Kenny Clark (Packers): 79 regular, 90 “Future Elite”

28. G Joshua Garnett (49ers): 79 regular, 90 “Future Elite”

29. DE Robert Nkemdiche (Cardinals): 79 regular, 90 “Future Elite”

30. DT Vernon Butler (Panthers): 79 regular, 90 “Future Elite”

31. OT Germain Ifedi (Seahawks): 79 regular, 90 “Future Elite”

32. Just kidding! There was no 32 pick, because Defaltegate.

As you can see, these numbers aren’t exactly rocket science. The higher the pick, the higher the rating.

That will likely change by the time Madden 17 comes out, and we’ve seen these guys in training camp.
