CowBuzz: Ezekiel Elliott Earns Highest Offensive Rookie Rating in Madden 17

On Wednesday, EA Sports revealed their top-10 rookie player ratings for Madden NFL 17. With an overall rating of 80, the Cowboys' newest running back Ezekiel Elliott earned the highest ranking for an offensive player and second overall behind the Jaguars' Jalen Ramsey.

EA Sports says, "Elliott will provide a change of pace for the Cowboys' run game. He is also a viable 3rd down receiver in the backfield who can pick up yards in a hurry. With 92 speed and 86 carry ratings, Elliott has the ability to play every down and be the workhorse -type back America's team needed all last season."

Prior to hearing the news of his first Madden player rating, Elliott took a guess at what he thought he would receive and then reacted at hearing the news of his official rating.
