Lets take a look from a Madden NFL 12 Perspective to see what rookies will get be likely to have high ratings in Madden 12.
Cam Newton – Stud in the making for Madden – THP, SPD, STR
Blaine Gabbert- Some physical tools, not for me tho.
Jake Locker- Ran a sneaky fast 40 time, could have a little physical Rodgers in him, without the Brain. Good for Madden
Colin Kaepernick – Tall, Fast, great backup to wrinkle into the offense.
Ryan Mallet – Big arm, small brain
Christian Ponder – A few great scrambles in college, hmm?
Mark Ingram – Not fast enough to matter
Jacquizz Rodgers - Great weapon to add via later rounds
Noel Devine – Now were talking
Da’Rel Scott – More speed for your squad.
There are proven solid John Clays, Dion Lewis, and Demarco Murrays of the world, but they don’t get me as excited as guys with great speed.
Julio Jones and AJ Green. Both are 6’4 studs with elite speed. Jones ran a 4.3+ 40 yard dash on a broken foot. Both appear to be Dez Bryant 2.0′s in the making!
Torrey Smith is smaller but has the speed to hang in the top echelon.
Titus Young – been called a poor man’s Desean Jackson (nuff said)
Fairley and Bowers are talented, but in Madden 12, you would take the WR every time!
Paea – If only for those 49 reps! 99 Strength?
Von Miller- Great edge rushing speed.
Akeem Ayers – Compared to Manny Lawson, nuff said.
Peterson looks like a star in the making
Prince Amakamura – Ran a solid 40 time to lock in his top 10 status.
Chykie Brown – Raw skills
De’andre Mcdaniel – Struggled in real life, but this is Madden. Speed doesn’t lie!
Ahmad Black – Size hurts, but still an impact player.
Robert Sands – 6’5 – a next generation Pat Watkins?
Madden 12 Draft Needs (Popular or Sleeper Teams)
1. Carolina (2-14) – Solid team overall, need a QB or Big Target. DE doesn’t help them in Madden!
7. San Francisco (6-10) – Cam Newton?
8. Tennessee (6-10) – Cam Newton? Vince Young, clean it up!
9. Dallas (6-10) – One more quick LB, with roster updates they will be back in Madden 12.
12. Minnesota (6-10) Speed on defense or a QB!
13. Detroit (6-10) – Under the radar Madden 11 team, if they can grab 1 or 2 gems, they will remain solid.
23. Philadelphia (10-6)
Need speed in the secondary to continue Madden domination with Vick.
24. New Orleans (11-5)
Need to add more speed on the defensive side of the Ball!
32. Green Bay (10-6)
Shaping up to be dominant in Madden 12, could use a speed back to add threat to running game.
