Rob Gronkowski, Julio Jones top pass-catchers in 'Madden NFL 18'

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski finished last year's reign as the "Madden" cover athlete rated 99 overall, despite an injury that cut his season short. For "Madden NFL 18," he'll begin at 98. Gronkowski is the highest-rated tight end in the game, with Travis Kelce, Jimmy Graham, and Delanie Walker next in line.

Falcons receiver Julio Jones stands alone at the top of the wide receiver list. Even at 98 overall, his attributes read like a would-be 99. That includes Awareness (99), Spectacular Catch (98), Catching (98), Route Running (96), Agility (95), and Speed (94).

Despite a rating of 97 overall, Steelers receiver Antonio Brown also will play like a 99, with attributes such as Catching (98), Awareness (98), Spectacular Catch (97), Elusiveness (97), and Route Running (97).

The Spectacular Catch rating is one that features highly for the best at the wide receiver position: Odell Beckham Jr. retains his 99 in that category. Among those rated 98 are Jones and A.J. Green, while Brown, DeAndre Hopkins, Dez Bryant, and Larry Fitzgerald hold 97s. Jimmy Graham is the highest rated tight end in Spectacular Catch at 96.
