With the release of Madden 25 coming next week, EA has released the ratings for every NFL player on the defensive side of the football. Here are their top-5 players for each position on defense:

1. J.J. Watt (99)
T-2. Cameron Wake (97)
T-2. Geno Atkins (97)
4. Muhammad Wilkerson (96)
5. DeMarcus Ware (94)

The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year was a no-brainer for a 99 rating after racking up 20.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and perhaps most impressive of all, 16 passes defended last season. Watt brings 97 Strength, 99 Power Moves and 98 Block Shedding to the table.

T-1. Von Miller (97)
T-1. Patrick Willis (97)
T-3. Aldon Smith (95)
T-3. Clay Matthews (95)
5. Lance Briggs (94)

Von Miller made his second consecutive Pro Bowl last season after finishing the year with 18.5 sacks and fix forced fumbles. His 88 Speed, 99 Finesse Moves, and 99 Pursuit Ratings make him nearly unstoppable around the edge.

1. Darrelle Revis (97)
T-2. Richard Sherman (96)
T-2. Eric Weddle (96)
T-4. Charles Tillman (95)
T-4. Jarius Byrd (95)
