Baltimore Ravens: Top 5 Madden 20 ratings that make no sense
4. Mark Andrews: Rated 79 overall
There has been a lot of buzz this offseason that Mark Andrews may end up being the one of the best tight ends in the league this season. There are three reasons why Andrews is going to make this rating look dead wrong. First he is coming off a strong rookie season. If he can put up 34 receptions for 552 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie, just imagine the progress he can make in year two.
Secondly, he developed a great chemistry with Lamar Jackson last year. Young tight ends are what young quarterbacks need. Finally, Andrews is a match up nightmare. He’s big and strong but he’s also quick and athletic.
Some of these ratings seem almost designed to keep the numbers in check. For example, Andrews is only an 81 out of a possible 99 in catching. That’s a number that plays heavily into his overall rating because he is a tight end. Andrews has proven to have very reliable hands. He hasn’t struggled in this department at all. 81 is a low number for one of the most reliable pass catchers on the Ravens roster. Nick Boyle has an 82 for catching and he’s a much less natural talent as a pass catcher. Boyle is primarily a blocking tight end and he is slightly rated ahead of the Ravens’ go to guy. What? Really? Wow.
