3. Equanimeous St. Brown has a lower rating than J’Mon Moore
To anyone who watched the Packers last season, this one will come as a surprise. Wide receivers Equanimeous St. Brown and J’Mon Moore were both selected in last year’s draft by the Packers. Moore was selected two rounds higher, but that’s about the only time that happened all year.
Moore struggled to adjust, only making two catches all season for 15 yards. St. Brown, however, showed a ton of promise with a solid rookie year, making 21 receptions for 328 yards, regularly showing his big-play potential.
This isn’t to say Moore can’t go on to become a good player. Of course he can. Especially in a new offense. But based on one season, St. Brown looks to be way ahead and more likely to earn a bigger role in Matt LaFleur’s offense this season.
That’s why it’s surprising to see St. Brown given such a low rating (66 overall) compared to Moore (67 overall). EQ has the same overall rating as running back Kapri Bibbs, who the Packers released earlier this offseason. He’s also lower than wide receivers Jake Kumerow and Trevor Davis.
St. Brown could be an important part of the Packers’ offense this year, but so far, he hasn’t been given a good “Madden NFL 20” rating.
