Along with the life-changing experience of being selected in the first round of the NFL Draft, 32 new professional football players received an additional honor last night: They became playable in Madden NFL 25.
While the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft went on, Madden 25 developer EA Tiburon added the draft picks to Madden Ultimate Team, the game's fantasy-team mode with virtual trading cards. Each of the 32 first-rounders, from the Houston Texans' Jadeveon Clowney to the Minnesota Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater, are now available in Madden Ultimate Team as cards with an overall rating of 90. Every one of them is also available in a two-item Collection: the 90-rated card and the Combine Collectibe card for the NFL club that drafted them.
Madden Ultimate Team players who complete the Collection will unlock a higher-rated version of the rookie card, and will receive a pack containing anywhere from 10,000 to 1 million Coins. Every All-Pro card pack is guaranteed to contain at least one item related to the NFL Draft.
