It’s that time of year for you sport gamers, Madden 20 is almost here!
Just a couple days ago, Madden released their rookie ratings and below we take a look at how the rookies from West Virginia were graded.
CAR QB Will Grier (66)- Grier’s rating makes him the fourth highest rated rookie quarterback and higher than 8th overall pick Daniel Jones. With starter Cam Newton nursing a shoulder injury, expect Grier to get a ton of action during the preseason. He could eventually become the starter if Newton’s injuries become a serious issue or if he decides to leave after his contract runs out next year.
SEA WR Gary Jennings (69)- Jennings is rated at the 14th best rookie receiver and could find himself being used early and often in the Seahawks rotation of receivers. Go to target Doug Baldwin has retired and a year ago Paul Richardson left for the Redskins, which for Seattle’s hand to draft four receivers in the 2019 NFL Draft.
BUF WR David Sills V (64)- Sills V is rated as the 34th best rookie receiver.
It was a surprise to many that Sills V went undrafted. Many expected him to be taken between the 4th and 7th rounds, yet was signed by Buffalo as an undrafted free agent. The Bills don’t have much at the receiver position, so making the roster shouldn’t be a problem for Sills V.
NE LT Yodny Cajuste (61)- Cajuste is rated as the 6th best rookie left tackle.
One pick after Will Grier was drafted by the Panthers, Cajuste went to the reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. He fits perfectly in Belichick’s scheme and has an extremely high ceiling. He may not start right away, but has the potential to be an All-Pro tackle down the road.
NYJ TE Trevon Wesco (69)- Wesco is rated as the 9th best rookie tight end.
Some scouts didn’t even have Wesco going in the draft, but the Jets took him off the board early in the fourth round. His incredible size and strength will translate to the next level. Although he’s mainly recognized as a blocking tight end don’t let that fool you. The man can catch too.
TEN MLB David Long Jr. (61)- Long Jr. is rated as the 22nd best rookie middle linebacker.
Arguably the most underrated defensive player in all of college football over the last three years will be beginning his career in Nashville. Long may not have the prototypical size of an NFL linebacker, but that’s not something that he hasn’t heard before.
