Electronic Arts has released the overall ratings for the top ten rookies in Madden NFL 16 and Jacksonville Jaguars LEO Dante Fowler was the sixth-highest overall grade, earning a 79 overall.

Here are the entire top ten rookie Madden ratings:

Amari Cooper, WR, OAK - 82 OVR
Jameis Winston, QB, TB - 81 OVR
Todd Gurley, RB, STL - 80 OVR
Leonard Williams, DL, NYJ - 80 OVR
Brandon Scherff, OL, WAS - 80 OVR
Dante Fowler Jr., DE, JAX - 79 OVR
Melvin Gordon, RB, SD - 78 OVR
Kevin White, WR, CHI - 78 OVR
Marcus Mariota, QB, TEN - 78 OVR
Vic Beasley Jr., DE, ATL - 77 OVR

As you can see, Fowler's rating is a couple of points higher than fellow pass rusher Beasley, who was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons just a few spots later.

No word yet on what Fowler's season-ending injury will do to his overall rating in next year's Madden.

Here is a video of several of the rookies reactions to receiving their Madden grade, including second-round pick T.J. Yeldon.
