EA Sports' Madden NFL 20 has yet to reveal overall ratings for each of its players heading into the 2019 season, but the rookies from this year's NFL Draft class have been released.

Among the top players, of course, is San Francisco 49ers EDGE Nick Bosa, who received a 78 overall rating. That mark puts him third behind the No. 1-ranked defensive tackle, Quinnen Williams of the New York Jets (80), and Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver (79).


Bosa, the No. 2 overall pick from this year's draft, did have the highest acceleration marking (91) out of this trio, and his awareness (74) was tied with that of Williams.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who was selected in Round 2, ended up with a 71 overall rating, while third-round wide receiver Jalen Hurd received a 68 overall mark. So did fourth-round punter Mitch Wishnowsky -- the first specialist taken off the board in this year's draft.

Tight end Kaden Smith received a 65 overall rating, linebacker Dre Greenlaw's rating was 63 and cornerback Tim Harris also came in at 63.

Rounding out the cast of 49ers draftees is offensive tackle Justin Skule, who received a 57 overall rating.

Interestingly enough, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray -- the No. 1 player selected in the draft -- received a 73 overall rating.

EA Sports didn't include the cast of undrafted free agents, and it's likely those will be released once the rest of the league's players have been announced.
