INDIANAPOLIS — It's officially Madden Ratings Szn, which officially means the real regular szn — er, season — is right around the corner.

To get the party started, EA Sports the last couple days has been revealing some rookies' ratings for its brand new "Madden NFL 21" game, which officially drops in stores on Aug. 28 (although you can play three days early if you snag the MVP Edition; either way, you can pre-order the game right here).

On Thursday, it was the rookie quarterbacks whose ratings were released; today, the rookie wide receivers got their turn — and there's plenty of Indianapolis Colts flavor in both camps.

All other players are expected to have their ratings revealed during EA Sports' "Madden NFL 21 Ratings Reveal Week" starting on Monday and going through next Friday on ESPN. The players who comprise the "99 Club" (as in a 99-overall rating, the highest in the game) will be revealed daily next week during Get Up, while First Take, SportsCenter and NFL Live will all be taking part in the Madden Ratings Week festivities. It all culminates in a SportsCenter special at 7 p.m. ET next Friday, which will be hosted by Laura Rutledge, Louis Riddick, Field Yates and Mina Kimes.

The Colts this year utilized draft picks on two wide receivers (Michael Pittman Jr. and Dezmon Patmon) and one quarterback (Jacob Eason). How do their initial "Madden NFL 21" ratings stack up?
