You might be a gamer. Your latest video game experience might be Atari. Either way, fans of their favorite NFL franchise love to see how their favorite players are rated in the worldwide phenomenon known as the “Madden” EA Sports video game.
While the entire slate of ratings has not been released yet, EA Sports did reveal their rookie ratings on Monday, and the Pittsburgh Steelers 2019 rookie class didn’t to poorly.
Check out the ratings for the class of 2019:
Devin Bush — 72
Diontae Johnson — 69
Benny Snell Jr. — 69
Justin Layne — 69
Sutton Smith — 66
Isaiah Buggs — 63
Zach Gentry — 63
Ulysees Gilbert — 62
Derwin Gray — 57

EA Sports’ Madden NFL Instagram feed did a short video of rookies reacting to their grades, and Benny Snell got some face time around 1:10 of the video below:
The Madden series will release the rest of their overall ratings in the coming weeks, and the game will be available to the general public on August 2, 2019.
If you are a gamer, you eat this type of stuff up. If you are not a gamer, checking out how they evaluated prospects can certainly be worthy of some discussion. As for me, the last video game console I owned was Playstation...the first one. Therefore, I’ll pass the baton to those who know more about this type of information than me.
