Complete St. Louis Rams Roster Ratings Revealed For Madden 15

For football junkies, August might be one of the greatest months of the calendar year. Fantasy Football Drafts are underway, preseason football is in full swing, and, most importantly of all, the newest iteration of the Madden series is released. Over the last couple of weeks, EA Sport has teased dedicated fans with a handful of reveals, including the top rookies from the 2014 Draft class and the Top 5 rated players from each position. Now, less than 20 days from the official release date, they have leaked the ratings for the entire roster of the St. Louis Rams.

 

Top 6 Players Overall

Robert Quinn (97)

Jake Long (90)

Johnny Hekker (87)

Chris Long (87)

Rodger Saffold (87)

Greg Zuerlein (87)

If the idea was to build from the inside-out, Jeff Fisher has certainly accomplished his goal in the eyes of the Madden 15 raters. The St. Louis Rams have four “linemen” in their Top 6 players, mixed with a handful of Pro Bowl-caliber special teamers. Normally, having two players whose only job is to kick the ball in the Top 10 would be considered a bad thing. In this case, maybe not?

 

Top Offensive Skill Players

Sam Bradford (85)

Zac Stacy (84)

Jared Cook (81)

Tavon Austin (78)

Kenny Britt (77)

Obviously, the Madden 15 raters have not been attending Rams Camp this offseason, with only three skill players making it over the 80+ benchmark. However, as is often the case, the overall rating can be a bit deceiving. For example, Tavon Austin has 96 Speed, 97 Acceleration, 98 Agility, 97 Juke Move, and 95 Elusiveness, which will do just fine on the Madden football field. Kenny Britt is graced with 91 Jumping, 88 Catch In Traffic, 83 Stiff Arm, and one of the highest Impact Blocking grades outside of the offensive linemen. Lastly, for those wondering about Sam Bradford, his 92 Throw Accuracy Short will certainly help in getting the ball to Tavon, while 90 Play Action and 88 Throw Power should be enough to make a handful of highlight play down the field.

 

The Offensive Line

Jake Long (90)

Rodger Saffold (87)

Greg Robinson (83)

Scott Wells (79)

Joe Barksdale (79)

Two seasons of injury have dropped Wells from the top rated offensive lineman on St. Louis Rams roster to the lowest starter. However, the improve elsewhere on the list will certainly make up for that drop. Looking through the ratings, here is our No.1 takeaway: Run the ball to the left, with Long (96) and Robinson (94) likely being the top rated Run Blocking tackle/guard combo in Madden 15. However, pass blocking isn’t too bad, overall, with an average rating of 82.3 across the front line. Here’s to hoping Bradford’s low 82 Injury rating can hold up…

 

Top 5 Defenders

Robert Quinn (97)

Chris Long (87)

William Hayes (84)

Janoris Jenkins (84)

Michael Brockers (81)

Noticeably absent from this list are the members of the “back-seven,” aside from the generously rated Janoris Jenkins. James Laurinaitis (81) and Alec Ogletree (79) are not too far behind, but it takes a scroll or two to find the rest of the starting members of the secondary. However, at the end of the day, that below-average backend might not matter, if the opposing quarterbacks cannot get the ball off. The St. Louis Rams defensive line is going to be a fun game of “pick your poison.” With 95 Acceleration, 97 Power Move, and 95 Pursuit, Robert Quinn is arguably the most dangerous pass rusher in Madden 15. Michael Brockers is a ratings monster in the middle, sporting a team-leading 94 Block Shedding and 89 Tackling, as well as 90 Pursuit and  83 Hit Power. That doesn’t even mention Aaron Donald, whose 81 Speed, 87 Acceleration, 93 Strength, and 85 Block Shedding might make him the most “elusive” defensive tackle in game.

 

Random Top Ratings:

Speed- Chris Givens, Tavon Austin (96)

Catching – Austin Pettis (85)

Trucking – Zac Stacy (91)

Spin Move – Tavon Austin (95)

Man Coverage – Janoris Jenkins (92)

Hit Power – Matt Daniels, Alec Ogletree, Robert Quinn (89)
