The people put in charge of rating the players didn’t go the easy route. In the past, we’ve seen player ratings go according to their draft position. That wasn’t the case in Madden 18.

Top-pick Myles Garrett is the highest-rated rookie, but No. 2 pick Mitchell Trubisky isn’t right behind him. The next highest-rated player is the No. 19 pick, O.J. Howard.

You aren’t likely to get an argument from anyone on Howard’s rating. His skill set and athleticism scream instant impact in the passing game for the Bucs this season.

The two lowest-rated players in the first round are the Cards’ Haason Reddick, Washington’s Jonathan Allen and the Dolphins’ Charles Harris. All three are rated a 73.

Madden ratings change throughout the season based on the players’ real-life performance. We’ll see which players see a rise or fall in their ratings once the real games begin.
