Travis Kelce has the highest run blocking rating for tight ends in Madden 16

New, comments

Jamaal Charles is tied for the third highest running back rating in Madden 16 and now we learn that Travis Kelce is also a top five player at his position. Kelce comes in with a 91 rating on Madden 16, which puts him No. 5 among all tight ends in the game.

Here's what the Madden 16 blurb says about him:

After missing his entire rookie season due to injury, Kelce shined in his on-field debut in 2014. He brings 89 Catching, 89 Jumping, 88 Spectacular Catch, 87 Catch in Traffic, 88 Release, and 81 Route Running. He also features 85 Run Block, tops among tight ends.

Note that he's the highest rated run blocker among tight ends. That's excellent acknowledgement of his work in that department. When you think of tight ends who are great at catching the ball, you just assume they're not as good at run blocking. Kelce truly is a complete tight end.
