EA Sports have released their Madden 20 ratings and I bet most Pittsburgh Steelers’ fans won’t be happy about the final results. Although this year’s game is supposed to have a higher range of ratings, and overalls across the board have come down, only one player is rated in the 90s. That’s right guard David DeCastro, who comes in at a 93 overall.
Here are the highest rated Steelers:
David DeCastro: 93
JuJu Smith-Schuster: 88
Cam Heyward: 86
Alejandro Villanueva: 86
Maurkice Pouncey: 85
Ben Roethlisberger: 85
Stephon Tuitt: 85
DeCastro and Heyward dropped two points from last year’s version while Roethlisberger fell three overall points.
Big Ben is just the 9th highest rated QB in the game while Smith-Schuster doesn’t even crack the top 15 at WR. DeCastro, at least, is the game’s 2nd best guard, trailing only Dallas’ Zack Martin (96 overall).
TJ Watt though might have been the biggest snub of all. Despite a 13 sack season, he’s just an 82 overall, right around the same ratings as Ramon Foster and Mike Hilton.
Other notable ratings include:
Steven Nelson: 76
Terrell Edmunds: 74
Sean Davis: 72
Let’s hope the Steelers’ secondary is better in real life than it is in Madden’s world.
The lowest rated Steeler to see the field last year, excluding long snapper Kameron Canaday (the game considers him a TE, making him a 37 overall) is free safety Marcus Allen. He’s a 62.
Only four players in this year’s Madden cracked 99 overall: WR DeAndre Hopkins, DT Aaron Donald, LB Bobby Wagner, and OLB Khalil Mack. The top quarterback in this game is Patrick Mahomes, edging out Tom Brady by one point (97 vs 96). With the game’s new features creating special traits for top players, like perfect accuracy and the inability to throw an interception, it’s possible Mahomes becomes the game’s most overpowered player since Mike Vick in Madden 2004.
Madden 20 releases nationwide on August 2nd for PS4, XBOX One, and PC.
