Chad Johnson Reveals Madden Rating to Raiders Henry Ruggs

Jairo Alvarado

Raider Nation and Madden fans around the world just got a glimpse of the new Madden 21 player ratings, and oh boy is there a surprise for all.

EA Sports began to release its first Madden 21 ratings, starting with the rookie quarterbacks and wide receivers.

Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young and former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson revealed the ratings as they spoke to several players.

Henry Ruggs III has an overall rating of 76 to tie for No. 1 along with first-overall pick Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals.

While that might not surprise many people, Ruggs' 98 speed rating would make him the fastest rookie player in Madden 21.

Johnson asked Ruggs what his speed was and he answered with a “99” and revealed that his rating was a 98 score.

Not only will the Raiders rookie be the fastest rookie in this year’s version of Madden, he will be the second-fastest receiver in the game, behind Chiefs’ wide receiver Tyreek Hill (99).

“OK-- that’s just until I get to the field and show it,” Ruggs said after the unveiling his speed rating.

His 98-speed rating was awarded after dazzling everyone at the NFL Scouting Combine. His 4.27 seconds in the 40-yard dash was the fastest among all trying out at the Combine.

A few more notable stats for Ruggs include a 97 acceleration rating, 87 agility, 83 catch rating, and a 94 jump rating.

Ruggs' speed rating has tied former Raider wide receiver Jacoby Ford, who earned a 98-speed rating, and surpassed his 74 overall rating back in Madden 12.

Raider Nation will be more excited to play Madden this year as Ruggs will indeed be something special in the game, and let’s hope that translates onto the field as well.
