We liked the Keanu Neal pick around these parts, given that Dan Quinn clearly coveted him, he's a fast and physical player, and his name is Keanu. EA Sports evidently likes him, too.
.@EAMaddenNFL hands out @Keanu_Neal's grade. Do you agree?— Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) May 13, 2016

For those who want to be saved a click, Neal clocked in at a respectable 81 ranking, which puts him in line with all the other picks from 16-20. He's got a 90-plus future elite potential rating or somesuch, which means you should be able to turn him into one of the better safeties in the NFL in a year or two. Hopefully the Falcons can say the same, but please do remember that Madden ratings do not correlate to real-life success, or my supercharged Lawrence Sidbury would be in the actual Hall of Fame right now.
We'll know the rest of the Falcons' rookie class soon enough. You picking up the new version of Madden?
