Ronnie Stanley's "Madden" rating released

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Each and every season, the creators of EA's "Madden NFL" series likes to give its players an idea on how some of the upcoming installment's top rookies are rated.

Baltimore Ravens fans will be happy to hear that Ronnie Stanley, who was drafted at number six overall by Baltimore, is thought of rather highly by the game's developers.

In fact, he'll be the third highest rated rookie in next month's "Madden 17" coming in behind Jaguars DB Jalen Ramsey (the top rated player), and Cowboy's running back Ezekiel Elliot at number two.

Stanley's overall rating will be a 79, which is congruent with how most of the top rookies place prior to the game's annual release, and is subject to improvement or regression, depending on how he plays this season.  The official post on the EA Sports website gives a quick description of Stanley's in game profile.

Stanley is best in pass protection and his 86 pass blocking proves just that. He has the ability to dominate opposing pass rushers and control the line of scrimmage with his size. 80 agility and 75 acceleration for an offensive linemen makes him one of the quickest in the game.

It'll be a few more weeks before we can see Stanley suit up in the purple and black for the first time, but until then, it's good to see him get some respect from the Madden developers.
