What should the Madden rating be of Chicago Bears tackle Bradley Sowell?

Rumors have began to come about of some of the Madden 19 ratings being released. It brings the question as to what some of the Chicago Bears players ratings would be.

This series is going to do just that. Today, we look at what Bradley Sowell should be rated this year.

2017 Review

Sowell has spent most of his career at tackle. However, in 2017 he had to move to guard due to injury to Kyle Long. Sowell started two games and played 297 snaps. It was not great as he finished his season rated 67 in Madden.

Player Comparables

What is interesting to note is that Tom Compton was rated as a 71. Compton did play 342 snaps for the Bears last season. However, when given the opportunity, the Chicago Bears chose to sign Bradley Sowell to a 2-year, $3 million deal. They decided to let Compton walk.

Compton may be a starting option for the Minnesota Vikings. However, it is worth noting that he signed just a one-year deal for $900K. It seems as though the market, and the Bears agree here that Sowell is better than Compton.

Ereck Flowers, and T.J. Clemmings are rated as a 71. Heck, Jordan Morgan finished the year with a rating of 70.

Madden Projection: 71

Sowell was put in a position he was not used to and it did not work out well for him. Projecting him to move back to a backup tackle and no longer a guard should be enough to increase him. Whether it be at tackle or guard, Sowell is going to head into training camp ahead of Jordan Morgan.

It feels as though Madden pushed Sowell down their rating system for dramatic affect to define him playing out of position. Now, Sowell should be back in his realstic ranking of 71.
