NFL rookies rate themselves in Madden NFL 16 — VIDEO

EA Sports asked several of the NFL’s top rookies to rate themselves in the upcoming Madden NFL 16 video game, then revealed their actual rankings. Their reactions were priceless.

Wideout Kevin White, the seventh overall pick of the Chicago Bears, was the only one of the high draft picks who appeared downright giddy about his rating, dancing around while saying, “Check it out! Check it out!”

Most of the players were disappointed, with Atlanta Falcons running back Tevin Coleman (73rd pick) tearing up the sheet of paper with his ranking on it and saying, “Y’all gotta do way better,” and Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Sammie Coates (87th pick) walking off while shaking his head and saying, “I’m sending it to my mom. I quit.”

For the record, Oakland Raiders receiver Amari Cooper (4th pick) had the highest rating among rookies, with an 82. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston, the top overall pick, was second with an 81.
