Tennessee Titans quarterback and 2020 seventh-round pick, Cole McDonald, will be making his debut in the Madden NFL video game franchise this year, and he had a little fun trying to guess what his ratings would be.
The Hawaii product received an overall rating of 60 from the game, which wasn’t far off from his guess. Take a look.
McDonald enters his rookie campaign with a chance to win a competition against Logan Woodside for Tennessee’s backup quarterback job behind starter Ryan Tannehill — that is, if the Titans don’t add a veteran.
However, things are going to be more difficult for all rookies in 2020 after an abbreviated offseason that saw no mini-camp. First-year players won’t have the benefit of preseason games, also.
McDonald is a bit raw and has been working on improving his throwing motion this offseason, but he does bring an intriguing skill set to the table with his big arm and ability to create plays with his legs.
McDonald was very productive in his last two seasons at Hawaii, totaling 8,010 yards and 69 touchdowns, to go along with 742 rushing yards and another 11 scores. In 2019, he finished third in the FBS in passing yards with 4,135.
