While all of Bills nation is buzzing about the real Sammy Watkins, it seems they aren’t alone. The folks over at EA Sports have a high opinion of the Bills’ dynamic receiver as well.

Graded out at an 80 when the Top 10 rookie ratings were unveiled, Watkins is the No. 1 rookie receiver in Madden 15, and the game’s fifth-best rookie overall behind DE Jadeveon Clowney (83), T Greg Robinson (83),  LB Kahlil Mack (81), and T Jake Matthews (81).

Madden Ratings Czar Donny Moore had this to say about Watkins, who ended up in Buffalo after a bold draft-day trade by GM Doug Whaley: “93 Speed, 95 Acceleration, and 95 Agility gives Sammy a trifecta at some of the most important ratings in the game for WR. Don’t forget 88 Catch too.”

So no matter where the game is being played – from the football field to your flatscreen – it looks like Sammy Watkins is the one to watch.
