EA Sports recently revealed some of the overall player ratings at launch for the upcoming Madden NFL 18 video game and Buffalo Bills rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White and running back LeSean McCoy were among the ones unveiled.
White is ranked 78, which gives him the highest ranking of all rookie corners. He’s also the second-highest first-year defensive back overall, behind only his LSU teammate Jamal Adams (81).
Meanwhile, there are just two running backs above the 92-rated McCoy: Le'Veon Bell (97) and David Johnson (94).
For the ratings of the rest of the Bills roster, the folks over at Madden School have it covered. You can view all the Bills ratings by clicking this link, and for comparison, you can see the ratings of every player in the league with this one.
Here are a few the ratings for some of the Buffalo's key players:
DT Kyle Williams: 87
WR Sammy Watkins: 86
DT Marcell Dareus: 85
QB Tyrod Taylor: 82
CB Ronald Darby: 79
WR Zay Jones: 74
Of the ratings listed here, only that of Darby is arguably too low. Darby’s play did regressed a bit in 2017 in comparison to what he showed in his rookie year, but he still has started every game in his two-year career for the Bills. He should at least be more than one notch higher than the first-year White.
Speaking of too low, Eric Wood (73), Preston Brown (74), and Leonard Johnson (71) definitely have some room for growth. Wood is only one point higher than journeyman Vlad Ducasse. Brown and Johnson have played large roles in defenses over the last couple years. Hopefully Jordan Poyer plays better than his 70 rating, too.
