When the Giants employ the phrase ‘Talk is cheap, play the game,’ they’re not talking about Madden NFL 13. But if they were to play the annual EA Sports video game, which is set to release at the end of the month, they would want Hakeem Nicks on their team.
With an overall rating of 94, the fourth-year wide receiver came in at No. 10 on the list of top receivers, combining wideouts and tight ends.
Here is a look at the top 10:
1. Calvin Johnson Jr., Detroit Lions (99)
2. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots (97)
3. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals (97)
4. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans (97)
5. Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers (95)
6. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints (95)
7. Steve Smith, Carolina Panthers (95)
8. Wes Welker, New England Patriots (95)
9. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons (94)
10. Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants (94)
