Little by little Madden NFL 21 rankings have been leaked as the franchise gears up for a release on August 25. Friday night, Madden released the complete rankings and boy are there some interesting overalls out there.
A few notables were released prior to Friday, like the cover athlete quarterback Lamar Jackson receiving a 94 overall. He was the third-rated QB behind league MVP Patrick Mahomes (99) and Seattle Seahawks Russel Wilson (97), however, that wasn’t enough to make him the highest-rated player on the Ravens squad.
“I wish it was better,” Jackson said on SportsCenter. “But hey, it’s better than it was last year. I guess we can roll with it till the season starts.”
Running back Mark Ingram ripped EA when his rating was revealed earlier this week — he wasn’t happy with his 87 overall.
“EA you sleeping on me,” he said in a hilarious video the company shared on Twitter. “Speed, strength awareness, I know y’all got me fumbling –– a couple times but not really. Let’s reevaluate this thing. Increase me.”
One of the Raven’s newest acquisitions comes in at No. 1 on the roster — Calais Campbell.
Campbell pulled in a 95 overall putting him tied at No. 7 among the league’s pass rushers. Campbell was a 92 overall last year during his final season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but obviously he’s gotten better,
