Your Madden Ratings?

Thanks. I love the draft process and have been following them closely for a long time now. I have my own views of the relative strength of this draft class but am always looking for other opinions. Using the Madden rating system makes it easier on some people. It's simple and a lot of people know it. I'd love to hear everyone's opinion, if they have one.
Speaking of Madden...

If you start a new franchise and do a "fantasy draft" (where you basically pick your own players for whatever team you choose in a league-wide draft with all players available)... Odell is like one of the top 3-5 players selected every single time (by the cpu). This is a combination of his rating, his age, his future development, etc., he is rated one of the most valuable players in the entire game. Funny how we let him go for basically an unknown value in a 1st round draft pick and an average starting safety.

Hey man I don't blame you, I love Madden and I actually think Madden often does a terrific job of correctly rating the players every year. Hell, it's how I figured out how "good" Zeitler really is (an 89 rating in Madden '19, pretty good!). It's one rating system over years I have actually come to trust when it comes to ranking NFL players.

The one thing I will say is with rookies they can't really know what they are going to be, so they kind of play it safe and make all 1st round draft picks somewhere in the 78-82 range, ya know? Like I think Barkley was an 81 or 82 last year, but the way he actually played last year was closer to like a 96. I'm sure there were other rookies who were rated in the 70s and actually performed like they were in the 50s or 60s, so I understand why Madden does it that way (you just never know how a player's skills in college are going to translate to the NFL). So I'm not sure how helpful this thread is going to be for rating how the 2019 rookies are actually going to turn out. Maybe the better idea would be to predict what you think their ratings will be by the end of year 1 or 2 of them actually playing. Personally I think Quinnen Williams will be closer to the low 90s by the time his rookie year is over.

You know, I have read BBI posts for years, and at some point someone says, "you know, this isn't Madden where you plug players in." I have never played Madden, so that never meant anything. But here we have a post that evaluates a trade literally based on a video game.
I peaked with Madden '93 for Sega Genesis.

Yup. And if you were playing with the '86 Giants, "3-4 Read, Man" gave LT a straight shot at the QB.
52, 76, 91

Had to look it up. I was thinking of '92. Safety blitz with LT off the edge was my straight shot.

What is Vernon and Pepper's rating? That would officially end much debate!

Madden ratings, probably equivalent in usefulness to PFzf ratings.
