Tua Tagovailoa’s got his first look at his rookie rating in ‘EA Sports Madden NFL 21’ on Thursday.
The No. 5 overall pick came in second among rookie quarterbacks with a 73 overall rating.
In the video, Hall of Fame QB Steve Young video chatted with the Miami Dolphins rookie and revealed some of his ratings. Young unveiled Tagovailoa’s play-action rating, which is an 84, and his break a sack rating, which is an 80.
The official EA website displays each of the quarterback ratings:
Tagovailoa, Joe Burrow, Jordan Love, and Justin Herbert were the only four quarterbacks that had a 70 rating or higher. That’s doesn’t come as a surprise given the fact they were selected in the first round of the NFL Draft.
For those familiar with Madden ratings, while they may be notorious for underlooking players, their rookie ratings are always fairly low. And a 73-overall rating is ideal for a rookie at any position, especially one coming off an injury.
Here’s Tagovailoa’s most notable ratings:
- 73 overall
- Awareness: 76
- Throw power: 88
- Short accuracy: 86
- Medium accuracy: 80
- Deep accuracy: 84
- Injury: 84
