Madden NFL 12: Top Ten Rookie LB Ratings Revealed


EA Sports is slowly releasing the ratings for the top ten rookies at each position group and the initial news is not good for Kansas City Chiefs OLB Justin Houston.

While many draft experts believed that Houston was talented enough to be taken in the first round, he slipped into the third in the actual draft, thanks mostly to his testing positive for marijuana use at the combine.

Whatever. I’m high right now.

Just kidding.

Maybe.

Anyway, Houston’s real life slip up cost him a lot of money. It now appears that it also cost his electronic self a decent out of the box Madden rating. Houston did not make the top ten at his position . Since #10, Bruce Carter pulled in a rating of 67, that means Houston will be lower than that. Ouch.

Full top ten after the jump.
