There’s no exact science to how NFL players are rated in EA Sports’ Madden series of video games. One typical standard, however, is the rookies who have yet to play an NFL game are initially rated considerably lower than their veteran counterparts.

Check out the hilarious reactions of Clowney, Manziel and other NFL rookies to their ratings in the video produced by EA Sports.
For now, the ratings remain a mystery, though EA Sports claims you’ll be able to see them beginning Monday.
