The Madden NFL 13 release is just over a week away and EA Sports continues to roll out the top rated players in the game. Today, they unveiled the top ten defensive players in the league according to their ratings. Two defensive players — Darrelle Revis of the New York Jets and the Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware — were given the top possible rating of 99 overall.
Here is a look at the top ten list of defensive players in Madden NFL 13:
Darrelle Revis, CB, New York Jets – 99
DeMarcus Ware, OLB, Dallas Cowboys – 99
Patrick Willis, ILB, San Francisco 49ers – 98
Jared Allen, DE, Minnesota Vikings – 98
Justin Smith, DE, San Francisco 49ers – 98
Julius Peppers, DE, Chicago Bears – 97
Haloti Ngata, DL, Baltimore Ravens – 97
Troy Polamalu, S, Pittsburgh Steelers – 97
Ed Reed, S, Baltimore Ravens – 97
Mario Williams, DE, Buffalo Bills – 97
There are no real surprises among EA Sports top ten list but giving Reed a 97 overall at this stage in his career is based more on reputation than his skillset which is in an obvious decline. One nice thing to see is Justin Smith getting the respect that he deserves which he doesn’t always get from the casual fans.
