Happy almost crazy holiday folks.

“Madden 22” is getting closer and closer to its August release, which means it’s time to get irrationally angry online over some imaginary numbers made up to properly assess the talent of NFL players in a video game. (Get off my lawn, you brats!)

First, as usual, the rookies of 2021: Some of the top-ranked neophytes in the qualifying game launched in late July, with some surprise classifications on the list, namely in the quarterback and wide receiver categories.

Madden’s rookie ratings always stir the pot and encourage lively discussion, more than any other position or experience level group in the game. After all, EA Sports and the developers of “Madden” have a college production to work with, which means they’re taking the guesswork out of how their production and talent might translate.

Here’s how the rookies for 2021 churn.

Madden 22 Best Newbies

The first wave of rookie ratings was published on an ESPN special on Sunday, July 25.

While it’s unclear if these are the top 10 rookies in the game, their ratings are as follows:

Player position team Classification
Kyle Pitts TEA Hawks 81
Trevor lawrence QB Jaguars 78
Jaylen waddle WR Dolphins 76
Patrick Surtain II CB Broncos 76
Zach Wilson QB Jets 75
Yeah, ‘Mar Chase WR Bengals 75
DeVonta Smith WR Eagles 75
Penei Sewell Old Testament Lions 75
Trey lance QB 49ers 74
Justin fields QB Bears 74

It was also revealed that Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has an overall rating of 71.

Remarkable:

– Zach Wilson, not Justin Fields or Trey Lance, is the second-highest-rated quarterback on the list, behind Trevor Lawrence.

– Patrick Surtain, Broncos DB, is the highest ranked defender, and the only one, on this list. We’ll see if that holds up when more ratings are revealed in the coming weeks.

– A surprise at the top: Jaylen Waddle, not his Bama teammate DeVonta Smith or LSU rival Ja’Marr Chase, is the highest-rated receiver of the three here. Kyle Pitts is at the top as the only player with a rating of 80 or higher.
