Saquon Barkley, Allen Robinson Lead Penn Staters’ Madden 22 Ratings

It is officially that time of the year, folks.

As “Madden NFL 22″‘s August 20 release approaches, the league’s players are receiving new ratings that guide their in-game stats. Once the annual video game is out, folks at home can play simulated games with their favorite Nittany Lions in the NFL.

Stars like Saquon Barkley and Allen Robinson are both tied as the highest-rated players to come from Penn State. Trace McSorley, however, may have a bone to pick with Madden as the lowest-rated Penn Stater in the league.

Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about this year’s Madden ratings.

RB Saquon Barkley, 90 Overall

Not only is Barkley the highest-rated player from Penn State, but he is also tied as the highest-rated player on the New York Giants with cornerback James Bradberry IV. The rating is especially good for Barkley, who is working his way back from a torn ACL last season.

Barkley is also the seventh-highest-rated running back in the game. The only players in front of him are Christian McCaffrey, Derrick Henry, Nick Chubb, Dalvin Cook, Alvin Kamara, and Aaron Jones.

WR Allen Robinson II, 90 Overall

Robinson also has a 90 overall rating, which makes him the second-highest-rated player on the Chicago Bears. Only Khalil Mack is in front of him, who sits at 96 overall.

Robinson posted a career-high 102 receptions last season, totaling 1,250 yards and six touchdowns.

He is the 10th-highest-rated receiver in the game, sitting behind Amari Cooper and Mike Evans while just ahead of DK Metcalf and Odell Beckham Jr.

SS Adrian Amos, 89 Overall

The highest-rated defensive player from Penn State, Amos is coming off one of his best seasons in the league. He notched two interceptions last season while also setting a career-high with two sacks. That performance puts him as the sixth-highest-rated player on the Green Bay Packers behind Davante Adams, Aaron Rodgers, David Bakhtiari, Jaire Alexander, and Jones.

Amos is also the fifth-highest-rated strong safety. The four players ahead of him are Tyrann Mathieu, Budda Baker, Harrison Smith, and Jamal Adams.

WR Chris Godwin, 87 Overall

Godwin had a season to remember last year. He posted 65 receptions for 840 yards, averaging 12.9 yards a catch. He also brought in seven touchdowns throughout the season. Did we mention he won a Super Bowl, too?

While an 87 overall rating makes him the fourth-highest-rated former Penn State player, he’s only the ninth-highest-rated player on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the second-highest-rated wide receiver on the team.

TE Mike Gesicki, 85 Overall

Gesicki’s stock is quickly rising across the league. In his best season last year, he had 53 receptions, totaling 703 yards and six touchdowns. That makes him the fourth-highest-rated player on the Miami Dolphins behind Xavien Howard, Byron Jones, and Jason Sanders.

He is also the eighth-highest-rated tight end behind Austin Hooper and Gronkowski.
