It should be no surprise that the first pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft would be EA Sports' top rated rookie in Madden NFL 15.

EA Sports has released its list of the top rookie rankings for its upcoming pigskin-tossing slobberknocker , Madden NFL 15. Just as we were expecting, Clowney was the top-rated rookie.

EA Sports

Despite having only an overall rating of 83, having a 94 in Power Moves had Houston Texan Jadeveon Clowney reigning atop his NFL freshmen cohorts.

EA Sports

Right behind Clowney we have St. Louis Rams' Greg Robinson, with a similar rating and a 94 RBK.

EA Sports

The Raiders' Khalil Mack has a 90 rating in Power Moves and a 91 in Pursuit, which means he's a forced to be reckoned with.

EA Sports

Jake Mathews, a new offensive lineman for the Atlanta Falcons, can stop other birds in mid-flight with his 90 Pass Block rating.

EA Sports

The Bills' new wide receiver, Sammy Watkins, has a 93 Speed, 95 Accuracy, 95 Agility and 88 Catch rating, which makes him an optimal choice for Manuel on the field.

EA Sports

With 95 Hit Power, the Jets' Calin Pryor is sledgehammer in motion.

EA Sports

Aaron Donald, of the St. Louis Rams, has the highest speed out of all of Madden NFL 15's defensive tackles, include the vets.

EA Sports

Green Bay Packers safety Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix's superb Zone Coverage (84) and Speed (85) has him breaking the top 10 of his rookie class.

EA Sports

At a solid 79 rating overall, Taylor Lewan is going to do very well on the Titans' offensive line.

EA Sports

The top rookie QB in Madden NFL 15, Blake Bortles, just barely makes the top 10, but he still earned his spot with an excellent arm.

These top rookies will hit the gridiron when Madden NFL 15 launches on Aug. 26 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
