Madden NFL 16 Primer: Why 'Draft Champions' Matters

Madden 15 Texans Ratings

Is DeAndre Hopkins ready to be a star in Madden 15?
Is DeAndre Hopkins ready to be a star in Madden 15?

Madden 15 Texans ratings are expected to be some of the more interesting in the AFC South, thanks in no small part to rookie Jadeveon Clowney and future star receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Now, the wait is over, as we’ve got the full Houston Texans player ratings for this season’s new football video game.

We already knew before today that Jadeveon Clowney had some shameful stamina in the game, despite being the highest rated rookie. But who else is worth a note in this year’s ratings? From a real-life football perspective, I’m absolutely in love with the potential of DeAndre Hopkins, and his Madden ratings while not incredible, certainly make him a force to be reckoned with for the future across from Andre Johnson (95 overall).

While Hopkins’ overall rating may not impress you much (75 overall), his numbers in general are pretty solid. Hopkins isn’t the fastest (88 speed) or the most agile (87 agility), but he’s already at 82 catching after just one season, and has a very nice 86 catch in traffic. Those two ratings alone are great core ratings to build around going forward.

The lack of a true quarterback is going to hurt the Texans this year, both on the field and in Madden NFL, but there are enough elite pieces on both sides of the ball to be competitive. J.J. Watt is the highest rated defender in the game at 99 overall, while Arian Foster still has some digital prowess. From a franchise mode perspective, this is going to be an incredibly fun team to play with, if just to build up the pass rush to something other-wordly with Watt and Clowney.

    In my new Fantasy Draft team, I plan to pair J.P.P. (probably 90-something) and Clowney (92 at DE?) at DE in a 4-3. Shuld equal an insane pass rush. Plus if I good get a player like Nick Fairley (91 ovr) to pair with them…oh the possiblities!
