For the offseason, rankings rule the day.
When it comes to rankings, one of the most anticipated and then debated is that of the Madden 19 player ratings.
The rookie ratings draw quite the debate and with the Arizona Cardinals Josh Rosen drawing a positive 78 rating, there won’t be much to complain about.
Unless you are fellow Cardinals rookie Christian Kirk.
Kirk did not make the top five in terms of rookie ratings on the initial Madden 19 player ratings.

While D.J. Moore, Calvin Ridley, Courtland Sutton and Dante Pettis were drafted in front of Kirk, he fell behind Chicago Bears rookie Anthony Miller.
Moreover, for me at least, Sutton is the only wide receiver with distinguishable difference at this point, so to see four similar prospects ranked ahead of Kirk is a bit interesting.
What do you think of the rankings? Are you surprised to see Pettis and Miller, at least, ranked ahead of Kirk?
