Jalen Ramsey – CB, Jaguars

Ramsey brings explosiveness to the Jaguars’ secondary and has the athletic ability to match-up against the leagues’ best receivers. With ratings of 85 man coverage and 84 zone coverage, he can play all downs and match up nicely in a variety of different defensive schemes. His 93 jump rating will play a big role against the aggressive nature of offensive passing schemes.

Ezekiel Elliott – HB, Cowboys

Elliot 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, Elliot has the ability to play every down and be the workhorse -type back America’s team needed all last season.

Ronnie Stanley – LT, Ravens

Stanley is best in pass protection and his 86 pass blocking proves just that. He has the ability to dominate opposing pass rushers and control the line of scrimmage with his size. 80 agility and 75 acceleration for an offensive linemen makes him one of the quickest in the game.

Roberto Aguayo – K, Buccaneers

Aguayo is the first kicker selected in the second round since Mike Nugent was drafted 47th overall in the 2005 NFL Draft and for good reason. 92 kick power and 94 kick accuracy will give you the confidence you need in the kicking game.

Joey Bosa – LE, Chargers

bosa79 OVR – 84 FMV – 80 PMV – 80 SPD – 82 BSH – 84 PUR

Bosa was one of the top players in the 2016 NFL Draft and for good reason. Bosa can get after opposing quarterbacks with either his 80 power move or 84 finesse move. Across the board, his raw athletic stats won’t wow you, but his balance will help bring stability to the Chargers’ defense.

Laremy Tunsil – LG, Dolphins

tunsil78 OVR – 81 RBK – 84 PBK – 88 STR – 83 IBL – 65 SPD

Tunsil is the prototypical linemen who brings size and athleticism to the Dolphins’ trenches. With 88 strength, Tunsil will dominate the line of scrimmage in run and pass situations.

Jack Conklin – RT, Titans

conklin79 OVR – 84 RBK – 81 PBK – 84 STR – 81 IBL – 72 SPD

A former college walk on, turn NFL pro, Conklin is best used in running situations where he can take advantage of his 81 acceleration and 83 run blocking.

Corey Coleman – WR, Browns

coleman78 OVR – 93 SPD – 93 ACC – 90 AGI – 93 JMP – 91 SPC

Coleman has the speed to run past defenders, but will need to work on his 80 route running. His 93 speed will make him difficult to cover in 1-on-1 situations.

Hunter Henry – TE, Chargers

henry78 OVR – 84 SPD – 89 ACC – 80 AGI – 82 JMP – 80 CTH

Henry has the size and speed to stretch defenses vertically, but also has the ability to be productive in the run game. With 77 run blocking, he can play on 1st and 2nd downs for the Chargers.

Deforest Buckner – RE, 49ers

buckner78 OVR – 86 TAK – 87 POW – 83 PMV – 82 BSH – 84 PUR

Buckner checks off every box in terms of athleticism and his size alone will impact games. Standing 6’7” tall and 291 pounds he will play a vital role in the 49ers’ run defense during his rookie year. His 87 hit power will be cause for concern for opposing ball carriers.

EA Sports also uploaded a video showing the rookies reacting to their ratings in the game, which you can check out up top.
