No I think it is the way the game goes. If a guy starts out in the 80ish range he has a good shot at storming up to 90 with two seasons. But I never got anything out of players who were less than 75, which means anyone drafted after the third (maybe even second) round.
I have a lot of issues with Madden's draft, for the reasons above and several others (some of which I have gone over). But what bothers me about rookies rated below 80 never being able to develop into anything is that only a couple dozen (tops) guys in each draft are rated better than 80. In my experience, once you get past the ten year mark, and players currently in the game start retiring, there seems to be a real lack of star players. Most teams seem to be squeaking by with average players and there are almost no studs anywhere. Since I get to train my guys in the trainingcamp mode I have people who are rated over 90 and so I tend to have a huge advantage in actual talent.
Maybe that is just what I have encountered and it is something I'm doing, but I think that is just the way the game goes.
