Before suffering a torn ACL that ended his junior season at Georgia, running back Todd Gurley was viewed as one of the best prospects in the 2015 NFL Draft class.

It appears Madden 16 agrees, at least as rookie running backs go. Gurley was given an 80 rating, tops among his peers at the position.

From Madden: "Gurley has the quickness with 91 Speed, 87 Acceleration, and 80 Elusiveness. The power shows up with 91 Trucking, 89 Stiff Arm, and 91 Carry. Just watch out for that 73 Injury Rating."

Gurley even had his own reaction to his rating.
