Jimmy Graham – 89
Graham finished last year as an 86 overall after going into the year as a 93 overall. The Seahawks offense he was part of was abysmal and it hurt his play and his rating similarly. Getting to play with Rodgers should boost him both on the real field and the virtual field. His age is a concern and it will affect his rating too, but the hype around a Rodgers-to-Graham connection should give him a nice rating in Madden 19.
Marcedes Lewis – 84
The newest Packer finished the year as an 86 overall. He’ll be playing with a great quarterback and in a great offense, but age will take its toll on his rating. Lewis was brought in for his incredible blocking abilities, but that won’t make his Madden rating increase too much. At an 84, or even anything above an 80, he’s a great second option at the position. His rating will fluctuate mostly based on his production on the field. His representation in Madden may not be as accurate.
Lance Kendricks – 74
After the Lewis signing it’s uncertain if Kendricks will still be on the roster in the preseason. I think he’s talented enough to warrant being the third old tight end on the team, and at a 74 overall he makes this unit one of the deepest in the league. Kendricks was underwhelming on the field last year. He has an opportunity to be better this season if the Packers keep him.
