The annual release of the ultra-popular Madden video game is only a month away. EA has now revealed the ratings for the Dallas Cowboys’ rookie class.
If you can’t watch real NFL football until September, you might as well play virtual football. Which is why the annual release of the ultra-popular football game known as Madden is always highly anticipated by gamers, many of whom are fans of the Dallas Cowboys.
Outside of flashy new graphics and game-play improvements, one of the main reasons gamers line-up to purchase the newest version of Madden is for the new, incoming rookie class. Getting to play rookies like quarterback Kyler Murray and defensive end Nick Bosa is a major draw.
For fans of the Cowboys, getting to see rookies like running back Tony Pollard and defensive tackle Trysten Hill in the game is an early treat as it releases a month before the regular season kicks off.
Now, the good folks over at Madden 20 have revealed all the starting ratings for the entire Cowboys’ 2019 rookie class. Remember, these ratings will change as the season progresses and will be updated into the game periodically.
Here are the Cowboys’ rookie class starting overall ratings according to EAsports.com.
Trysten Hill, DT – 72
Tony Pollard, HB – 68
Michael Jackson Sr, CB – 66
Joe Jackson, RE – 64
Connor McGovern, RG – 64
Mike Weber, HB – 64
Daniel Wise, DT – 62
Jalen Jelks, LE – 61
Donovan Wilson, SS – 60
Brandon Knight, RT – 53
The Cowboys didn’t possess a first-round selection in 2019 after they traded it to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper. Dallas’ top selection, Trysten Hill, is actually the sixth highest rated defensive tackle in this rookie class according to the Madden 20 ratings. Surprisingly, the Cowboys third-round selection, McGovern, has a lower overall rating than Dallas’ fourth and fifth-round selections, Pollard and the two Jacksons.
You can get your copy of Madden 20 starting on August 2nd. Those who opt to pre-order the Superstar Edition of the game will get to play three days before everyone else. The cover athlete for this year’s version of Madden is Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
