As the countdown to Madden 18 dwindles, EA Sports continues to reveal the top players at each position.

After releasing ratings for first-round picks, quarterbacks and running backs, the developers have announced who the top-rated tight ends and wide receivers are when the game launches.

It should be no surprise to learn that Atlanta Falcons star Julio Jones tops the list of wide receivers at 98 overall, but Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown follows right behind with a 97 rating.

A.J. Green (94), Odell Beckham Jr. (93) and Dez Bryant (91) round out the top five. There are a number of other receivers with a 91 overall rating, including DeAndre Hopkins and Mike Evans.

For tight ends, last year’s Madden cover athlete Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots leads the way at 98 with Travis Kelce (94), Jimmy Graham (93), Delanie Walker (93), and Greg Olson (92) sitting in the top five.

The full Top 10 ratings can be found below.
