EA Sports' Madden NFL 25 video is due to hit stores next Tuesday and we've been given a sneak peek at the offensive ratings for the Denver Broncos. Today, we'll take a look at each skill position on offense.
- Peyton Manning * 97 Overall * 89 Throw Power * 95 Throw Accuracy * 90 Toughness
Manning is tied with Tom Brady (97) for the second-best rating in the game, behind only Aaron Rodgers (98).
- Brock Osweiler * 73 Overall * 96 Throw Power * 79 Throw Accuracy * 81 Jumping
Last year, the Broncos were prepared to turn to Osweiler in the case of a Hail Mary scenario. His ratings reflect that.
- Zac Dysert * 68 Overall * 89 Throw Power * 81 Throw Accuracy * 10 Kick Return
You can change a player's position in this year's edition of the game, but we won't be having Dysert run back any kickoffs.
- Knowshon Moreno * 76 Overall * 86 Speed * 67 Strength * 90 Agility * 76 Catching * 86 Carry
Moreno isn't currently listed as the team's starter, but EA views him as the best option in the backfield.
- Montee Ball * 75 Overall * 86 Speed * 76 Strength * 86 Agility * 66 Catching * 96 Carry
Ball is ready to carry the load, according to EA.
- Ronnie Hillman * 72 Overall * 91 Speed * 53 Strength * 94 Agility * 67 Catching * 74 Carry
Hillman is a quick and elusive back, and his ratings reflect that.
Receivers and Tight Ends
- Wes Welker * 93 Overall * 85 Speed * 96 Catching * 65 Run Block * 99 Toughness
Welker is tied with Roddy White as the fifth-highest ranked receiver in the game.
- Demaryius Thomas * 90 Overall * 96 Speed * 92 Catching * 72 Run Block * 95 Jumping
Thomas is by far the most complete and most athlete receiver on the team.
- Eric Decker * 87 Overall * 87 Speed * 88 Catching * 50 Run Block * 88 Spin Move
Just don't ask Decker to block and you should be fine.
- Jacob Tamme* 80 Overall * 82 Speed * 84 Catching * 62 Run Block * 68 Stiff Arm
Tamme is entering the season banged up, but he remains the team's best receiving tight end.
- Joel Dreessen * 81 Overall * 78 Speed * 86 Catching * 75 Run Block * 11 Throw Power
Don't ever try a tight end pass with Dreessen.
- Julius Thomas * 65 Overall * 83 Speed * 86 Catching * 75 Run Block * 5 Kick Return
EA has clearly underrated Thomas going into the 2013 season.
