Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown wasn’t too thrilled with his Madden 20 rating.
One of the honors of being drafted into the NFL is getting your name and likeness in the Madden video game. Well, Tennessee Titans rookie wideout A.J. Brown will of course be in this year’s installment and it’s safe to say he wasn’t thrilled about his rating.
Brown was taken in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Titans, and from watching his college tape it’s clear this young man has some potential.
However, rookies are normally rated somewhat low for their first year in the game until they can prove themselves.
Brown—along with the other Titans rookies—is in that same boat, as Madden 20 has given him an overall rating of 72.
Don’t worry, A.J., you’re just getting started.
The highest-rated Titans rookie was defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons, who was given a 74 by the game. For what it’s worth, Brown was tied for the fifth-highest rating among rookie receivers.

Brown did get solid ratings in some of the categories. His speed was rated as an 89, while his acceleration comes in at a 91 and his catch rating is an 83. Simmons scored an 83 in strength and an 80 in tackling.
Ratings can change as the season goes on, so these rookies have an opportunity to improve their respective marks during the season.
