Madden NFL 16 Primer: Why 'Draft Champions' Matters

Madden 15 Ratings: Jadeveon Clowney’s Shameful Stamina

Jadeveon Clowney is a man among men, but he'll be taking plenty of Madden naps.
Jadeveon Clowney is a man among men, but he'll be taking plenty of Madden naps.

Madden 15 ratings for the top rookies in this year’s draft class were revealed just hours ago, but while the overall ratings for the Houston Texans #1 overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney might be the best in the class, his effort on the field has clearly earned him a nasty reputation of taking plays off that has extended it self into the digital world, with an paltry 69 stamina rating.

In Madden NFL, stamina is reflective of how long a player can stay on the field before his skills quickly start deteriorating, and for Jadeveon Clowney that means things start going down hill quite fast. With an incredible 88 speed, 92 acceleration, 94 power move and 95 hit power, Clowney is just about everything you could ask for in a rookie defender, but his stamina will severely limit him on the field for the time being.

If It’s in The Game, It’s In The Game

Madden 15 ratings czar Donny Moore was quick to defend the decision on Twitter to dock Clowney so hard on his stamina. “He is not a 3 down player at this point in his young NFL career,” said Moore, who has no-doubt painstakingly crafted this year’s ratings from numerous game films and opinion from NFL talent evaluators. For now, it seems, the only thing stopping Clowney from dominating in the Madden world is the same thing that may stop him from doing so in real life — himself.

    this will matter not…..after I sim the pre-season and do the practices clowney will have at a very minimum of 8000 XP and if he also has superstar development….i think the stamina upgrades will start ridiculously low about 200 or less of XP….not unusual to increase that 69 to 80 after the pre-season…….so i wont ever worry about this…….most of the attribute code is joke anyway……

    I don’t really get this. Stamina and effort are different things and Clowney had good reason for not putting that much effort into 2014 after seeing what happened to his teammate Marcus Lattimore.

    Great discussion, czar Donny Moore been screwing up players attributes for years. I don’t understand how EA give one man all this power. My main complaint for instance, you have any two players at WR, etc. with the same 40 time, and czar will have each player with different speed on the game. EA your whole attribute system need to be revamp,
