Buffalo Bills’ Tyree Jackson surprises, Ed Oliver near top in rookie ratings for Madden 20

New, comments

Buying the annual Madden NFL video game is a tradition among football fans around the country. For the players, especially the rookies seeing themselves in the game for the first time, it’s even more exciting. Buffalo Bills rookies were able to see their initial rankings on Monday when the rookie set of Madden 20 scores came out.

The biggest news isn’t necessarily among the top Bills picks, but rather with UDFA quarterback Tyree Jackson. Jackson, who again was not picked in the draft, was given a 64 overall score while Daniel Jones, selected sixth overall by the New York Giants, was given a 63. This according to Mike Straw of Sports Gamers Online.

Calling this the biggest news isn’t meant to slight Ed Oliver, who earned the second-highest ranking among all rookies, slotting in at 79—just one point behind Quinnen Williams. A full breakdown of Oliver’s grade can be found here on the EA website.

Here are the rest of the Bills’ rookies:

  • Ed Oliver 79
  • Devin Singletary 72
  • Cody Ford 68
  • Dawson Knox 68
  • Tommy Sweeney 67
  • Jaquan Johnson 65
  • Tyree Jackson 64
  • Vosean Joseph 64
  • David Sills V 64
  • Darryl Johnson Jr. 63

For reference, last year Josh Allen was rated 74 overall, which was fifth out of his fellow quarterbacks drafted in 2018. Teammate Tremaine Edmunds was in the middle of Allen and Oliver with a 75 rating in the video game a year ago.

Madden 20 will be released on August 2nd.
