Zach Wilson's Madden 22 rating is on the minds of many as the new game cycle gets underway.

The New York Jets made a tough decision to move on from Sam Darnold, the third overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, by trading him to the Carolina Panthers. All eyes were on who the Jets were going to take to become the new face of the franchise. Enter Zach Wilson. The BYU quarterback dazzled scouts last season shooting his draft stock all the way up to the second overall pick in the 2021 draft.

And that's exactly where he went. Wilson comes into New York with the fan base dying for him to be The Guy. The Jets are the lowest rated team in Madden 22 coming in at 72 overall. But, where does Zach stand as a rookie QB?

Wilson comes in at 75 overall, second to only Trevor Lawrence in the rookie quarterback ratings department.

Wilson is a dual-threat QB, much like the rest of the talent in the class outside of Mac Jones. He's got 83 speed and 84 agility, but the real strength of his first-year ratings lies in the throwing department. "His 85 Throw on the Run and 94 Throw Power ratings are both highest in the game among the rookie QB class," EA Sports said.

Wilson threw 20 touchdowns on play-action passes which was tied for the most in the FBS. He can move out of the pocket and beat you with his arm or legs. Fans will keep an eye on how Wilson performs his rookie year and how that relates to his Madden stats.
