49ers RB Raheem Mostert wants a speed upgrade in Madden NFL 21

Feb 20, 2021 at 7:19 PM--


With a speed rating of 97, 49ers running back Raheem Mostert is already one of the fastest players available in the latest installment of the Madden NFL video game series, Madden NFL 21. But apparently, he thinks he should be rated even higher.

And, truth be told, Mostert has a point. Mostert was clocked by NFL Next Gen Stats as having the two fastest runs of the 2020 season -- an 80-yard touchdown against the Jets in Week 2 during which he was clocked at 23.09 MPH and a 76-yard catch against the Cardinals in Week 1 that saw him reach 22.73 MPH. Mostert posted highlights of the two runs to his Instagram account Saturday, along with a request to have his Madden NFL 21 score raised to a maximum mark of 99.

"@eamaddennfl, Ima need that speed rating at a 99 😏🏎💨💨 Please and thank you," Mostert wrote.


Mostert isn't the first NFL player to request his speed rating get raised to 99. Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill also made that request in 2018 and wound up getting his rating raised to 99 after speaking to someone with game publisher EA Sports. Hill is currently the game's fastest player, followed by Raiders receiver Henry Ruggs at 98 and Mostert, Ravens receiver Marquise Brown, Eagles receiver Marquise Goodwin, and Chiefs receiver Mecole Hardman at 97.

Time will tell if Mostert is successful with his request. But if anyone deserves to be put on the same level as Hill, it's Mostert. Mostert was a standout on the track in college at Purdue, once posting a 10.15-second mark in the 100-meter dash and a 20.65-second mark in the 200-meter dash. Hill once ran a 200-meter time of 20.14 and a 100-meter time of 10.19 while also once reaching sub-ten second time in the 100-meter dash with a tailwind. Hill's fastest run during the 2020 season reached a peak speed of 21.91 seconds.

Fantasy Football Alert: Kyle Juszczyk says 49ers have 'big plans' for Raheem Mostert

Injuries limited San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert to eight games last season. Of course, injuries devastated the entire roster, resulting in a disappointing six-win campaign. Some better luck on the injury front could result in a quick turnaround for Mostert and his Niners. That's what recently re-signed fullback Kyle Juszczyk expects. In fact, the 49ers' offensive weapon expects big things in 2021 for his running back teammate. Much of that has to do with play-caller Kyle Shanahan and how the head coach takes advantage of each player's strengths. Juszczyk used wide receiver Deebo Samuel as an example. In each game, Shanahan installs two or three plays that can take advantage of the young wideout's physicality. "He knows that he just needs to get



Steals the 49ers Should Target in the 2021 NFL Draft

Throughout the past couple of weeks, the anticipation and coverage around who the Niners will take with the third pick in the draft has dramatically built to the expense of the discussion on who they should take in the later rounds of the draft. The 49ers' offseason signings and new free agency acquisitions have certainly exceeded expectations but there are certainly still plenty of holes and weak patches on the roster. Addressing these roster spots efficiently in the draft is crucial as the players they pick will be inexpensive and productive, leaving room for even more cap space for next year's free agency. This year, San Francisco has the following picks: 3 (1st Round); 43 (2nd Round); 102 (3rd Round); 117 (4th Round); 155, 172, 180 (Round 5); 194 (Round 6); 230 (Round



Former NFL QB explains why criticisms of Justin Fields, potential 49ers draft pick, are 'bogus'

No one is questioning Justin Fields' athleticism. Some question the former Ohio State quarterback's ability to transition from the college game to the pros quickly. Mark Sanchez recently joined The Pat McAfee Show and explained why Fields' ability to learn an NFL playbook might not take as long as some might be anticipating. Maybe all of his skeptics, who want to find ways to bring the quarterback down, are wrong. "For Justin, this guy, Dr. Goldman, he's a sports psychologist; I talked to him yesterday," Sanchez said (h/t to Jordan Cohn of 95.7 The Game). "He has some interesting



Justin Fields to throw again for NFL teams on April 14; 49ers expected to attend

By David Bonilla

Much was said of San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch's absences from Ohio State's pro day last week. Instead of traveling to Columbus to watch quarterback Justin Fields, a candidate to be drafted with the team's No. 3 overall pick, the duo was in Tuscaloosa for Alabama's pro day, watching Mac Jones. Why Jones over Fields? "[Just] talking with Fields' agent [David Mulugheta] and everything, we'll get another one from him too," Shanahan explained last week, per Kirk Larrabee. "So we'll be able to see him. That kind of made it an easy decision." According to Fields' agent, that next opportunity will come on
