It seems that Calvin Pryor’s reputation precedes him.
We all love “Madden”, the video game, do we not? Most of us, if not all of us, got a great deal of enjoyment as a youngster playing that game, pretending to control our favorite NFL team and players. I, for one, started playing in the 90’s, so the development of the game has been just unbelieveable to watch.
It is also fun when the ratings come out. We get to see how the current team’s players are going to perform, including the rookies.
Yesterday, the rookie ratings came out, and the makers of Madden feel that John Idzik made a good choice on the first round. Safety Calvin Pryor made the list of top rookies, with ratings of 85 for speed, 89 for acceleration, 87 for agility, 95 for hit power, and 79 over all.
The creators of the Madden game clearly think that Pryor is going to have a positive impact in 2014. Hopefully they are right on the money.
