EA SPORTS’ TOP 5

These are the official ratings from EA SPORTS listing the top players at each position. All of these players are Pro Bowl caliber, and many are on their way to the Hall of Fame. Every season, gamers quickly load up the rosters for Madden NFL to see which players have the highest ratings in the game. Every Overall rating is analyzed by each team’s fans and of course its rivals. The players on this list have consistently out-performed their peers and are considered the best players in the league. These players have the statistics to be ranked above their peers and are expected to repeat these performances, especially if they want to stay on this list.

PRIMA’S TOP 5

While EA SPORTS does a tremendous job rating players, all fans love to dig through the ratings and argue for their favorite players and teams. By testing out every team, player, and rating in the game, ZFarls and SGibs have developed some of their own favorite players they think can win you more games in Madden NFL 25. Many of these players can be found on the EA SPORTS list, but all of them are worthy of checking out and taking out for a test run this season. Each player has a unique style and blend of ratings that gives him a distinctive feel, and by testing them out you can learn which players are most effective for how you want to play the game.

TOP 5 ROOKIES

Every season, thousands of hours of scouting and work go into the NFL Draft, which determines where college talent ends up in the NFL. All of the rookies discussed here have a special style and blend of ratings that can make them huge factors during the course of a Madden NFL season. Many factors determine which rookies are at the top of their position, including draft order, which team selected them, style, and position. Never overlook a rookie just because you haven’t seen him play on Sunday yet.
