The actual start of the NFL season seems be getting closer and set to kickoff on September the 8th. EA Sports Madden NFL 12 is set to be released on August 30th.
To supply you with a quick fix of football during a day where everyone waits in anticipation for the 32 NFLPA* team representatives to annouce if they will reccomend the current tabled CBA to the 8 members of the Brady vs. NFL antitrust lawsuit.
Here it is Madden recently released its top ten incoming rookie rankings and simply put, these are the new guys added to the game that should have the biggest impact right out of the box.
10. Robert Quinn – DE – STL – 78 OVR
9. Julio Jones – WR, ATL – 78 OVR
8. Mark Ingram – RB – NO – 79 OVR
7. Mike Pouncey – OL – MIA – 79 OVR
6. Von Miller – OLB – DEN – 79 OVR
5. J.J. Watt – DE – HOU – 80 OVR
4. A.J. Green – WR – CIN – 80 OVR
3. Prince Amukamara – CB – NYG – 81 OVR
2. Marcell Dareus – DE – BUF – 82 OVR
1. Patrick Peterson – CB – ARZ – 82 OVR
We expect Watt’s impact to be felt right away on the field once the season kickoffs and we also expect Watt’s overall madden ranking to improve because of it.
While its a nice honor as J.J. Watt agrees but wants everyone to know that only his performance, “on the field is all that matters“.
