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.

It looks like the San Francisco 49ers struck gold at wide receiver for the second consecutive year. It was Deebo Samuel in 2019, and in 2020, the Bay Area team landed another versatile wideout via the draft in Brandon Aiyuk. Aiyuk finished the season with 60 receptions for 748 yards with five touchdowns. He added six carries for 77 rushing yards and another two scores on the ground. The superb first year was enough to land Aiyuk on Pro Football Focus' 2020 NFL All-Rookie Team. "The 49ers struck again," wrote Ben Linsey.

Quarterback C.J. Beathard had a good game on Sunday, according to Pro Football Focus. His 81.3 overall grade from the analytics site was the best among San Francisco 49ers players. Beathard finished the game completing 25-of-37 passes for 273 yards with a touchdown and a passer rating of 98.1. On top of the insurmountable number of injuries the team endured this past season, the 49ers spent the last month in Arizona after Santa Clara County COVID-19 restrictions banned contact sports. "Hopefully, we don't ever have to do this again, first off," Beathard said after the game, ready to finally get home. "But, there were some good times, some good memories here with the guys when you're all kind of bunked up in the same hotel you get to see them in passing a little
