It is the “week of the wide receiver” for the folks at EA Sports as they continue to roll out the latest rankings by position group for the upcoming Madden NFL 13 release. A Sports has conducted daily voting to see which receivers should have the highest rankings in certain stat categories. Today’s category is the ever important route running.
The wide receivers up for today’s vote are former Madden cover boy and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Carolina Panthers Steve Smith and Wes Welker of the New England Patriots.
All three wide receivers are well-known for their route running ability and could make a strong case for the highest rating. However, the vote is likely to come down to Fitzgerald and Welker.
Fitzgerald is one of the best all-around wideouts in the game and has made a name for himself thanks to his spectacular route running ability. Welker can also say the same but his route tree is less diverse. Because of Fitzgerald’s ability to run routes all over the field, you would have to give him the edge in this vote.
Who do you believe should have the highest route running rating — Fitzgerald, Welker or Smith? Sound off in the comments section and let your voice be heard. You can also head over to the EA Sports page and vote in the official poll.
