The release of the Madden NFL video game is a huge event every year. Tonight the folks at EA Sports have released the rookie ratings for this year's game, and Titans first-round draft pick Taylor Lewan got a 79. Only five rookies have a higher rating than Lewan- Jadaveon Clowney (83), Greg Robinson (83), Jake Matthews (81), Khalil Mack (81) and Sammy Watkins (80).
Now obviously these ratings don't mean anything when it comes to a real-life football game, but there is a lot of research that is done into making the ratings on the game accurate. That means that the people at EA Sports have a very high level of respect for Lewan. That can't be a bad thing.
