EA Sports has released their rookie ratings for the upcoming Madden NFL 20 game, set to be released in early August. 

Penn State's six draftees all received their initial ratings, with Miles Sanders checking in as the program's highest-rated rookie.

Rookie Ratings
Player Team position rating
Miles Sanders Eagles RB 72
Amani Oruwariye Rams CB 68
Shareef Miller Eagles DE 66
Connor Mcgovern Cowboys RG 64
Nick Scott Rams SS 60
Trace McSorley Ravens QB 55

Sanders, the second running back drafted this spring, is tied for the second-highest ranked rookie running back with Devin Singletary and Darrell Henderson Jr. They trail only Raiders' first-round pick and former Alabama star Josh Jacobs.

Orwuariye's 68 rating puts him squarely in the middle of the rookie cornerback field. He also has the third-highest rated zone coverage among corners. Shareef Miller's rating seems fair given his strengths and weakness, as the game has him as one of the fastest players at his position.

McGovern at 64 seems a bit low for a third-round pick. That rating is good for fifth-best among right guards. Nick Scott is expected to mainly play on special teams with the Rams so his 60 overall should be taken with a grain of salt. Trace McSorley's rating seems far too low, even with all the doubts around him. He's the lowest ranked quarterback among those drafted, something that should not be the case for a guy who was one of college football's best dual-threat quarterbacks for three years. 

Do you think these ratings are accurate, if not who's too high and who's too low?
