  • Jake O'Donnell

With the top 13 rookies already rated, today’s Madden 15 player rating release turns to the quarterback position where a newcomer has cracked the top 5 highest rated passers in the game. Take a wild guess who it is.

Here’s what the rookie class looks like so far:

1. Texans OLB JaDeveon Clowney – 83 Overall, 88 Speed, 92 Acceleration, 86 Tackle, 94 Power Move
2. Rams OT Greg Robinson – 83 Overall, 87 Acceleration, 93 Strength, 94 Run Block, 88 Impact Block
3. Raiders OLB Khalil Mack – 81 Overall, 87 Speed, 80 Tackle, 84 Block Shedding, 87 Hit Power
4. Falcons OT Jake Matthews – 81 Overall, 82 Acceleration, 84 Run Block, 90 Pass Block, 85 Impact Block
5. Bills WR Sammy Watkins – 80 Overall, 93 Speed, 95 Acceleration, 95 Agility, 88 Catching
6. Jets SS Calvin Pryor – 79 Overall, 85 Speed, 89 Acceleration, 87 Agility, 95 Hit Power
7. Rams DT Aaron Donald – 79 Overall, 87 Acceleration, 93 Strength, 86 Power Move, 85 Block Shedding
8. Packers SS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix – 79 Overall, 85 Speed, 90 Acceleration, 84 Zone Coverage, 83 Hit Power
9. Titans RT Taylor Lewan – 78 Overall, 87 Acceleration, 90 Strength, 85 Run Block, 86 Pass Block
10. Jaguars QB Blake Bortles – 78 Overall, 73 Speed, 76 Acceleration, 92 Throw Power, 86 Throw Accuracy Short
11. Bengals CB Darqueze Dennard – 78 Overall, 90 Speed, 88 Acceleration, 89 Man Coverage, 92 Press
12. Buccaneers WR Mike Evans – 78 Overall, 88 Speed, 93 Jumping, 90 Spectacular Catch, 93 Release
13. Cowboys RG Zack Martin – 78 Overall, 81 Acceleration, 89 Strength, 83 Run Block, 84 Pass Block

The follow slideshow features explanations for the ratings by EA’s football skill arbiter, Donny Moore. Hard to argue with his choices thus far (though we’re sure some of you in Cleveland might take issue with Blake Bortles getting the edge on Johnny Manziel). As far as the top 8 QBs are concerned, Moore nailed this one.

As far as EA Sports.com, however, what’s with putting Kaepernick on the official “Top 5 Quarterbacks” image and not giving him a spot? Oof.
