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.

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined Michael Silver and his daughter, Natalie, on the latest Pass It Down podcast. Of course, the topic of quarterbacks came up. The Niners have Jimmy Garoppolo, who helped guide the team to a Super Bowl just over 16 months ago. But the team also planned for the future, trading up to select Trey Lance out of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick. While Kittle remains loyal to his starting quarterback of the past three and a half seasons, the All-Pro tight end is impressed with his new rookie quarterback. "He's a freak athlete. It's kind of fun to watch that. It is," Kittle told the Silvers. "He's got a cannon for an arm too. That's fun to watch too. It's a different style of quarterback play, for



Kyle Shanahan discusses having a dual-threat quarterback in 49ers rookie Trey Lance

Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's ability to lead the San Francisco 49ers offense. That confidence may waver when it comes to depending on his veteran passer to be available for the majority of the season. That, not his skill set, led Shanahan and the 49ers to seek another quarterback in the draft. In January, Shanahan fell in love with the idea of acquiring Trey Lance. He liked several of this year's rookie quarterbacks, but it was the North Dakota State product who pushed him to want to trade up from No. 12 overall. So San Francisco did exactly that, moving up to No. 3 to select Lance, a prospect with little experience but huge upside. Most assume that it is Lance's athletic ability that drew Shanahan to the

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined Good Morning Football today and was asked about his new quarterback, rookie Trey Lance. The team concluded its offseason program last week, and won't hit the practice field again until the end of July. In April, the Niners traded a haul of future picks to move up to the No. 3 overall spot to select Lance. After finally being able to haul in some passes from the quarterback, Kittle has been impressed by the 21-year-old.

Mohamed Sanu has some laughs at 49ers rookie Trey Lance's expense

San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance is spending the next month preparing for training camp. He threw some passes to teammate Mohamed Sanu this week, and the veteran wideout had a little fun at the rookie's expense. Many NFL players use the cars they drive to make a statement. The bigger the contract, the flashier the car might be. Lance's statement appears to be, "Cut me some slack. I haven't even signed my rookie deal yet." Sanu jokingly poked fun of Lance's ride this week — a Chevrolet Malibu. It's probably not the statement vehicle you would expect of a young up-and-coming star. "All that money, he pull up in a Malibu," Sanu can
