Denver Broncos: K.J. Hamler’s Madden 21 rating revealed
The second pick by the Denver Broncos, receiver K.J. Hamler, has his Madden 21 rating revealed.
When we think about Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver K.J. Hamler, what is one thing that comes to mind? His speed. The newest edition of the popular NFL football game, Madden 21, has given Hamler a very nice rating.
Overall, Hamler checks in at 70 overall. That takes several factors into account, including speed, awareness, catching, etc.
Hamler is one of the fastest players coming out of college this year, and Madden has given him an overall speed rating of 94. That ranks second to just Henry Ruggs III, who boasts a 98 speed rating.
As a speed machine, Hamler needs that big boost to get him going. His acceleration is off the charts, at 95. It helps him become one of the most fun players to utilize in the video game. It will be hard for defenders to catch him when he is in the open field.
Hamler’s awareness rating is just 63 overall. The issue is that he only played two seasons of football. But with proper coaching and experience, that rating should bump up significantly.
Hamler has had some drops over the course of his college career, and some may view it as a concern, while some may not. Madden gave him a catch rating of 77, while the highest-rated player in that category is Isaiah Hodges of the Bills, at 86.
At 5’9”, Hamler is quite small for a receiver. That may be an issue. Hamler’s jump rating is 85 overall, while there are ten players rated 90 or higher. Hopefully, his speed outshines his “lack” of jumping ability.
The Broncos are not expected to use Hamler on kick or punt returns because they have a reliable player in Diontae Spencer doing those things, but Hamler comes in second overall among rookies in terms of return ability rating, at 82 overall.
One of the cool things with the video game is that you can change the roles of each player and put them where you want. So if you wanted to put Hamler in at a return spot, you absolutely can do that.
