Madden 15 Vikings ratings have run their way into focus today, as EA is releasing the full player ratings for the AFC and NFC North for its upcoming NFL football video game. For Minnesota Vikings fans, that means a sneak peek at what is in store for this year’s rising stars, like Cordarrelle Patterson.

While everyone knows that future hall of famer Adrian Peterson (98 overall) is the real superstar on the Vikings, there’s been a ton of buzz this offseason about the outlook of WR Cordarrelle Patterson’s sophomore campaign. With an 82 overall rating in Madden 15, Patterson might not be rated as highly as some other rising stars in the league, but he has all the physical tools to become a dominant force should his receiving skills develop further.

At 5-10-1, the Vikings didn’t come close to what fans would have wanted, but they did position themselves nicely in the draft to snag rookie LB Anthony Barr (75 overall rating), who is easily one of the best new young linebackers in the game this year with his ridiculous 90 speed, 89 acceleration and 91 agility. And, of course, there is rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater (77), who has a pretty solid 87 short accuracy and 82 mid accuracy to start his Madden career.
