Like most players who dream of seeing themselves in the video game they grew up playing, Redskins rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins was excited about being a part of Madden.

Now, all he has to do is bring up that rating.

In the Madden NFL 20 player ratings released Monday, Haskins came in with a pretty average score, 72 (star quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers usually max out the game’s internal player ranking system with scores closer to 100).

Haskins’ ranking is typical for rookies. He came in one point behind quarterback Kyler Murray, the top overall selection in this year’s draft, and, notably, much higher than the second signal-caller taken, Daniel Jones of the New York Giants, who was given a less-than-inspiring 63.

The Redskins top pick, taken at No. 15 overall, was the third quarterback selected.

He reacted to his Madden ranking on Twitter: “I’m coming for the 90s next year”

The new version of the game comes out in early August.

The other new Redskins in the game include first-round pick wide receiver Montez Sweat, running back Bryce Love, wide receivers Terry McLaurin and Kelvin Harmon, linebackers Cole Holcomb and Jordan Brailford, cornerback Jimmy Moreland, guard Wes Martin, and center Ross Pierschbacher.
