Madden 20 ratings for the Redskins 2019 draft picks released
Madden 20 ratings are going to be coming out in the coming months, and the ratings for the Redskins rookies are now officially here.
We’re officially approaching Madden season. The NFL video game from EA Sports drops in August before every NFL season and in recent years, player ratings have generated a high amount of interest among fans. And ahead of Madden 20, that will be no different.
Now into July, EA released the first player ratings ahead of their game’s launch, revealing the ratings of all players drafted in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Unsurprisingly, defensive players led the charge in terms of overall rankings, and Quinnen Williams was the only player to break the 80 overall mark. But despite having a couple of first-round picks, the Redskins only had one player among the top 20 in overall ratings.

Here’s a look at the ratings for the Redskins rookie class, per EA Sports:
- ROLB Montez Sweat (73)
- QB Dwayne Haskins (72)
- RB Bryce Love (71)
- WR Terry McLaurin (70)
- WR Kelvin Harmon (67)
- LB Cole Holcomb (65)
- CB Jimmy Moreland (64)
- LG Wes Martin (63)
- LOLB Jordan Brailford (62)
- C Ross Pierschbacher (62)
Obviously, these numbers will change throughout the season and rookies tend to be graded on a lower scale to start. But, most of these ratings seem fair — even the O-line marks which tend to be low across the board in Madden.
That said, Sweat rating sticks out as being a little bit low. Sweat was highly productive in college and tested out as one of the top edge athletes in NFL Combine history. He should’ve had a chance to break the 75 mark and be a top-10 player in this rookie class, and that may have been the case if he didn’t slip in the draft due to medical concerns. If Sweat balls out early in his rookie campaign, the number will surely change.
As for the Redskins’ other first-round pick, Haskins, a 72 mark seems fair, especially considering that Kyler Murray earned a mark of 73. Those two have the highest upside of the quarterbacks in this draft class, and those ratings reflect their developmental projections. And notably, they are both significantly higher than that of Daniel Jones, who earned a mind-numbingly low mark of 63 in the initial rankings.
Still, Haskins isn’t holding back hope that he can earn a higher rating next year, as he showcased on Twitter.
Perhaps that mark will continue to put a chip on the Ohio State product’s shoulder as he looks to earn the starting job for the squad.
Obviously, these player ratings don’t have an impact on the actual on-field play of the Redskins. But, they’re fun to look at nonetheless.
