EA Sports has announced the 13 highest rated rookies in Madden 15.  It’s no surprise that the #1 overall pick in the draft, JaDeveon Clowney, is tied for the highest rated rookie heading into this season.  It may surprise many, however, that he is only rated an 83 overall.  The second pick in the draft, Ram OT Greg Robinson is also rated at 83 overall.

One thing worth noting is that according to ratings czar, Donny Moore, if you move JaDeveon Clowney to DE his overall goes up from an 83 to a 92.
