Sports gamers far and wide are anxiously awaiting the release of EA Sports’ NCAA Football 2014. Read on to see how the Miami Hurricanes rank.
2014 Miami Hurricanes Player Rankings, courtesy of Operation Sports:
- Duke Johnson (HB #8): OVR – 91
- Stephen Morris (QB #17): OVR – 90
- Seantrel Henderson (LT #77): OVR – 90
- Anthony Chickillo (#71): OVR – 89
- Denzel Perryman (#52): OVR – 89
- Eduardo Clements (#23): OVR – 87
- Shane McDermott (#62): 87
- Brandon Linder (#65): OVR – 86
- Shayon Green (#51): OVR – 86
- Phillip Dorsett (#4): 85
While Duke Johnson may be the best player on the Miami squad – at least when it comes to speed and elusiveness – I have to question the rankings of Eduardo Clements and Shayon Green.
Clements has the potential to develop into a solid back, but an 87 overall ranking may be pushing it. After all, the junior saw action in just seven games last season, mostly on special teams and as a reserve. In Clements defense, he suffered a season-ending injury that left him sidelined for the last five games of the 2012-13 season. But having to contend against Johnson and [Mike] James for playing time, Clements wasn’t going to shatter any school records either.
As far as Green, I am not exactly sure what he did last season to warrant a 86 overall ranking. The senior defensive end has been injury prone, but perhaps he can prove doubters wrong during his final season at UM. Green did however lead the Hurricanes defense with 67 tackles in 2012-13 and was voted the 2012 Defensive Most Valuable Player.
NCAA Football 2014 is available for pre-order on July 9.
Do you agree with the Miami rankings? Who should have made the list?
