Kentucky roster revealed in NCAA Football 14

The UK football team beat Ole Miss 30-13 on Saturday, November 5, 2011, at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Ky.

Last week at the E3 expo, the newest installment of EA Sports’ NCAA Football franchise debuted on the showroom floor. While there is still a couple of weeks until its release day for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, those lucky few inside the Los Angeles Convention Center revealed some details about the game.

We have already seen the top players in the entire game revealed, along with each team rating. I posted that data here last week, including the entire Kentucky schedule for 2013. Now we have more data on the individual team rosters. Below is how the top of Kentucky’s roster will look in NCAA Football ’14, of course, according to EA Sports.


The biggest surprise has to be the how loaded the defense appears to be, and more specifically the defensive front. Six of the top ten players on the roster are on the defensive side of the ball, including the top four players overall. That has to make defensive-minded head coach Mark Stoops happy.

You have the senior anchor in the middle, Avery Williamson leading the way for the Cats with an 88 overall rating. Close behind is 340-pound D-tackle Mister Cobble, flanked by Bud Dupree on the end, boasting a healthy 89 acceleration value, which will be more than handy coming off the corner on the pass rush. Throw in a solid rating with safeties Glenn Faulkner and Ashley Lowery, and NCAA Football has plenty of respect for the Wildcats defense next season.

Not to forget the offense, three skill position players appear in the top ten, along with senior tackle Kevin Miller leading the way in pocket protection. Jonathan George is rated the best running back on the team, Max Smith checks in as the top quarterback, and Demarco Robinson and his blazing 91 speed round out the top players on the squad.

    It shouldn’t be a surprise how highly rated our front seven is. They will be the strength on this year’s team. What’s somewhat surprising is Za’Darius isn’t included. Chalk that up to being a JUCO transfer.

    Zadarius isn’t too much of a surprise because they rarely give newcomers a good rating. Where is the love for Landon Foster?!

    Could someone explain to me, I thought that Video Games couldn’t use players names or likenesses. Has that changed or what’s the deal with that?

  5. Yeah

    @4 it doesnt. It just uses numbers, however user edited rosters on operationsports will be matched exactly by our depth charts by me and a few others. That means correct names number and ratings as the season wears on.

    @4 you will be able to upload the roster about a week or so after release. That includes correct names, weight, height, postion, corrected ratings of every player on every team.

    Never knew this about Tracy McGrady…

    A McDonald’s All-American, Tracy led Mount Zion to the #2 ranking in the country, and was named national Player of the Year by USA Today and North Carolina’s Player of the Year by the Associated Press. His final numbers for 1996-97–27.5 points, 8.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 2.8 steals per game–attracted the attention of every major college coach. After Odom, he was rated above other prep stars such as Shane Battier, Ron Artest and Marcus Fizer. Leaning toward Rick Pitino and Kentucky, Tracy seemed ready to commit to the Wildcats.

    With 91 speed and 95 acceleration DeMarco Robinson will be a beast on this game. Hopefully his Catching rating is at least in the 80s though.

    @ 5,6

    Very interested on how to do this. Any quick links to explain the process??? TIA

    If Lowery and Rumph are actually healthy and ready in time for the season, our defense will be pretty good, I think. But they don’t have Z Smith on here, soooooooo I wouldn’t take much stock in this.

    So if a guy that is 6’8′ has the wingspan of a guy that is 7’2″, then what does a guy that is 7’2″ have if he has short arms?

  12. Yeah

    On how to upload the roster? Sure. When the times come you’ll be able to enter my gamertag and view my locker. Which is pretty much just a little share center with things like screenshots highlight films and the roster I use. You’ll be able to click on roster and download to your own hard drive. Then you just have to choose which roster you want to use during your dynasty. I’ll put my gamertag on the site on July 9th in one of Stu’s posts. – go big blue!

    Stuart. where did you find this information?

  14. Yeah

    PS I’m working UK and Arizona can tell you Z will be a 86. Bud will receive a slight bump. Blue will be low 80s and hatcher and Timmons both 77s. Smith will not be the highest rated qb. My formula based on spring game stats, effectiveness in the offense and expected level of play.

    Did you guys know that Donte Rumph and Avery Williamson are on mel kipers big board ranked 5th at their positions in the sec? Surprised that cobble is rated higher than Rumph

    You can tell this is just a game because Max Smith is turrible! He no better then a SEC back up. I would like to see Patrick Towles get his shot to show what he can do! I hope I’m wrong but just going by how high this staff is on Barker and Towles not being groomed to play this year. It looks as if this staff isn’t to high on Patrick!
