As player ratings are being released for the new edition of the Madden video game, two Chargers rookies are rated at the top of the rookie class.
As the NFL season gets closer and closer, so does the release of the new Madden. One of the most popular gaming franchises in history, Madden slowly releases ratings of the players featured in the game.
The fans of the game are especially interested in how the developers rate the rookies. Luckily, the San Diego Chargers have some high rated rookies that should help you win some games.
According to Steve Noah of OperationSports.com, first-round pick Joey Bosa is the third highest rated rookie in Madden ’17.

Along with Bosa, the NFL‘s twitter account confirmed that second-round pick Hunter Henry is also in the top 10 highest rated rookies.
With two rookies rated in the top ten, it shows that the Chargers made some NFL-ready selections in the draft. Both Bosa and Henry are going to produce right away (If Bosa signs his contract).
Being the third overall pick, it’s fitting that Bosa is the third-best rookie in the game. Bosa is a 79 overall rating and is going to be playing at left end in the new game. Which is pretty accurate as he will be lining up next to Corey Liuget on the right side and Brandon Mebane in the middle.
Henry is just behind Bosa with a 78 overall rating. Henry is going to be the backup tight end but he should see a lot of playing time. The team will be trying to lighten Antonio Gates’ workload and Henry is a great way to do that.
Another tidbit regarding the Chargers rookie ratings is Drew Kaser is going to be at least a 74 overall, according to an ESPN article.
Madden is high on the San Diego draft class. Hopefully, their play on the field can back up these ratings.
Madden ’17 will be released on August 23 in the US.
