Madden: Graham a Top-5 Tight End
Madden NFL 17 continues to release its initial player ratings ahead of its August 23 release date, last week unveiling the Seahawks' Russell Wilson as the video game's fifth-highest rated quarterback and today revealing Seattle's Jimmy Graham as the fifth-highest rated tight end.
Graham's overall rating is set at 89, ranking behind New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (99 overall), Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen (93 overall), Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker (93 overall), and Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (90 overall).
On Graham, Madden writes:
Graham excels in the pass game, so get him the ball early and frequently. He is often the tallest player on the field so take advantage of his height and 91 jump rating by delivering high point passes downfield.
