Emeke Egbule: 63

Egbule is listed as a left outside linebacker in the game. While Egbule is the 14th-highest rated outside linebacker, some of the players in front of him are players like Montez Sweat or Jachai Polite, who are considered more edge rushers rather than traditional linebackers, although Egbule could certainly fall in the same category as well.

Easton Stick: 62

62 is a low rating for old Madden standards, although if one takes into account that sixth overall pick Daniel Jones is rated 63, 62 may not be a bad rating after all.

Athleticism was one of the main characteristics of this year’s draft class or the Chargers, and it’s something that can be seen in Madden. Just like with Tillery and Broughton (although a very different position), Stick’s speed and acceleration stand out. His 88 acceleration rating only trails Kyler Murray and Tyree Jackson, while his speed (85) is fourth after Murray and Jackson, as well as Trace McSorley.

Overall, Stick is the seventh-highest rookie quarterback.

Trey Pipkins: 62

Pipkins being selected in the third round was a big surprise for everyone, even Trey himself. So a 62 rating is around what could be expected. He is the 11th-highest rated rookie offensive tackle for Madden NFL 20.

Daniel Helm: 62

One of two undrafted rookies to round out the list, the tight end from Duke is the 17th-highest rated rookie tight end in the game.

Justice Liggins: 60

He is the lowest rookie wide receiver in the game, although making the game can be considered an achievement for now. He has all of the preseason to show that he is more than a 60 rated receiver.
