Madden 22: First round rookies with Superstar development traits

NFL rookies enter the Madden universe with something to prove and EA Sports celebrate their potential with development traits.
We live in a world where the young ones are often overlooked because they haven’t gathered the experience necessary to prove themselves worthy of recognition.

While it is a completely normal request to see a tangible track record, talent cannot be denied and that’s the case for this generation of NFL rookies.

Madden 22 has identified a distinguished group of first-year players that showcased elite abilities and intangibles during their college football careers, which guaranteed them a special benefit on their virtual counterparts.

Few select rookies will have a Superstar development trait on Madden 22 franchise mode

Although it may be obvious, the development team had help from the pros to thoroughly evaluate this rookie class and those drafted in the first round had a clear edge that they built on and off the field.

Unfortunately, not every player can be a superstar, which obliged EA to really look into each playehttps://www.ginx.tv/en/madden-22/madden-22-mut-top-10-most-expensive-playersr’s performance, resulting in a very selected group that will grow their rating and develop abilities faster than their colleagues.

The rookies with a Superstar development trait on Madden 22 are:

  • QB Trevor Lawrence - JAX Jaguars - 78 OVR
  • QB Trey Lance - SF 49ers - 74 OVR
  • TE Kyle Pitts - ATL Falcons - 81 OVR
  • WR Ja'Marr Chase - CIN Bengals - 75 OVR

  • LT Penei Sewell - DET Lions - 75 OVR
  • CB Patrick Surtain II - DEN Broncos - 76 OVR
  • HB Najee Harris - Pittsburgh Steelers - 76 OVR
