49ers’ Brandon Aiyuk ties for sixth-highest rating among rookie receivers in Madden 21

Jul 10, 2020 at 8:27 AM--

EA Sports revealed the Madden NFL 21 ratings for every rookie wide receiver from this year's draft class. Below are the 10 highest-rated rookie wideouts in this year's installment of the popular multi-platform football video game.

1. Henry Ruggs, Raiders - 76
2T. Ceedee Lamb, Cowboys - 75
2T. Jerry Jeudy. Broncos - 75
4. Justin Jefferson, Vikings - 74
5. Jalen Reagor, Eagles - 73
6T. Brandon Aiyuk, 49ers - 72
6T. Laviska Shenault, Jaguars - 72
6T. Devin Duvernay, Ravens - 72
9T. Michael Pittman, Colts - 71
9T. Tee Higgins, Bengals - 71

But you're probably more interested in Aiyuk's ratings. The San Francisco 49ers rookie receiver owns a speed rating of 91, ranking 10th among the group. Ruggs, by the way, earned the highest rating (98) in that category among rookie wideouts.

Below are some of Aiyuk's additional individual ratings.

Acceleration: 92
Strength: 65
Agility: 91
Awareness: 70
Catching: 81
Carrying: 81

Aiyuk's acceleration grade ranks fourth in the game among rookie wideouts, behind only Ruggs, Jeudy, and another Broncos receiver, H.J. Hamler. His catching rating ranks 17th, but several players fall into the range between Aiyuk's rating and Buffalo Bills receiver Isaiah Hodgins' leading rating of 86 in that category.

San Francisco selected Aiyuk out of Arizona State with the No. 25 overall pick in April's draft. He recorded 98 receptions for 1,666 yards with 11 touchdowns in two seasons with the Sun Devils after transferring from Sierra College.

Football Outsiders has once again taken a look at the best young players in the league who don't have a lot of playing time. The feature for ESPN casts aside first-round picks and other top prospects, and instead focuses on those who didn't receive a lot of fanfare.

The list is a top 25 ranking, and two players represent the San Francisco 49ers. The first — 26-year-old offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill — comes in at No. 10. The
