Josh Allen has the highest throw power in Madden

By Nick Veronica and the [BN] Blitz media team

Scouts marveled over Josh Allen's arm strength all throughout the pre-draft process. The creators of the Madden video game agreed.


Allen, the Bills' rookie quarterback, was given a 99 throw power rating in Madden 19 – the highest score of anyone in the entire game. Detroit quarterback Matt Stafford was second with a 98 throw power while Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, Carolina's Cam Newton, Baltimore's Joe Flacco and Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes all graded out at 97.

Allen received a 72 overall rating, which ties for 38th among all quarterbacks in the game, although he's tops on the Bills; A.J. McCarron is a 71 and Nathan Peterman is a 68 (and if you're curious, Tyrod Taylor is an 81).

Allen's other ratings include 79 short throw accuracy, 77 mid throw accuracy, 74 deep throw accuracy and 62 awareness. But he's got the arm. He told me after the draft that his longest throw on record was 82 yards.

The highest-rated Bills players are SS Micah Hyde (92), RB LeSean McCoy (90), FS Jordan Poyer (88), CB Tre'Davious White (88), WR Kelvin Benjamin and TE Charles Clay (85).
