49ers rookie QB Trey Lance reveals prediction for Madden NFL rating

May 16, 2021 at 10:23 AM--


Players around the NFL are often disappointed by their Madden NFL video game ratings, pleading with the game manufacturer, EA Sports, to give them a boost.

The Checkdown asked some of the rookie quarterbacks from this year's draft class to predict their Madden NFL 22 ratings for the upcoming season. It's always difficult to rate rookies because they have yet to prove anything in the league.

Trey Lance was among those asked to predict their ratings in the upcoming release of the football video game franchise, and the San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback sounded optimistic about his potential rating. Maybe too optimistic.

Lance believes his Madden rating should be 88 "because I can do a lot of things, I can make plays."


The 49ers quarterback isn't the only one being a little too hopeful.

Mac Jones of the New England Patriots feels that his rating will be lower than he probably deserves but still feels it could land at about 85. Justin Fields of the Chicago Bears is a bit more realistic, feeling that his rating will probably be between 78 to 81, which would be extremely good for a rookie quarterback. Zach Wilson, the No. 2 overall pick by the New York Jets, predicted the group's highest rating, saying his should be 90.

Wow. 90.

It's worth noting that the highest ever Madden rating for a rookie quarterback was an 83, earned by Andrew Luck, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts. Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals was last year's highest rated rookie quarterback with a rating of 76.

Needless to say, some of these rookie quarterbacks might be disappointed by their ratings when they are revealed this summer.

Trey Lance started his first NFL game this past weekend, replacing an injured Jimmy Garoppolo. The rookie quarterback's performance had its ups and downs. Despite the defeat and the San Francisco 49ers falling to 2-3 on the season, the outing was an excellent opportunity for Lance to learn and gain valuable experience. General manager John Lynch joined KNBR today. He offered an evaluation of Lance's first start and didn't feel the moment was too big for the 21-year-old. "I think that was the case from the very first play," Lynch said on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "You know, welcome to the NFL. J.J. Watt and Chandler Jones blow by our offensive line on the first play, and Trey's got enough athleticism and instinct to pull up and make an



Analyzing 49ers QB Trey Lance's rookie season so far

When the 49ers drafted Trey Lance at No. 3 overall, I thought that he was specifically for 2022, because I felt the inconsistencies with his accuracy in college just needed to be fixed, similar to Josh Allen when he came out of the draft. Well, the inevitable happened, as Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a calf strain in San Francisco's Week 4 loss to Seattle, paving the way for Lance to make his first career start. Up to now, Lance is 25-of-48 for 354 yards, with three touchdowns, and an interception through the air, while also rushing 27 times for 133 yards and a touchdown. So, where does that place Lance? Well, in the limited sample size, Lance has primarily been what was expected, and then some. Coming out of college, Lance was a player



49ers-Cardinals: Players, coaches praise Trey Lance after first NFL start

Trey Lance's first NFL start was far from perfect, but it was good enough to leave a positive impression on those who were playing with and against him on the field. Lance finished with 192 yards on 15-of-29 passing with zero touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, while also leading both teams in rushing with 16 carries for 89 yards. Following the game, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters he felt Lance played well overall despite the first quarter interception that the Cardinals turned into their first touchdown. "I thought he did some really good things," Shanahan said. "Definitely wasn't perfect, which no one ever has been. That first pick I thought just sailed on him. He was going to the right spot but it



49ers' Kyle Shanahan reveals what went wrong with George Kittle's injury

George Kittle was not able to practice last week. Despite being listed as "doubtful," there remained hope that the San Francisco 49ers tight end might be able to play this past Sunday in rookie quarterback Trey Lance's first NFL start. "Everything's focused on this Sunday, and George is working his tail off to be there," general manager John Lynch said last week. "If not, it's nice that we do have a bye, and we're hopeful that time can allow him to heal enough to really lick this thing and put it behind us so he can get back in there at practice." Kittle won't return after the bye against the Indianapolis Colts. He won't return for the next game,
