This has been a big week for Madden 22. Yesterday, the top 10 receivers were revealed and Green Bay Packer Wide Receiver Davante Adams joined the 99 club. Today, Madden released the top 10 edge rushers in the game. And to no one’s surprise, Los Angeles Rams Aaron Donald is still the highest-rated edge rusher.

On the Madden 22 Twitter page, EA collaborated with Donald’s family to reveal another landmark achievement for The three-time NFL defensive player of the year. This is his 5th year in a row being a part of the 99 club. He is tied with Baltimore Ravens legend, Ray Lewis, for the second-most in Madden history. They are second to the Hall of Famer, Peyton Manning, who has 6.
The rest of the top edge rushers are no slouches either. 2016 Defensive player of the year Kahlil Mack of the Chicago Bears is 96 overall. The runner-up for the 2020 defensive player of the year, T.J. Watt of the Pittsburgh Steelers has a 94 overall. Arizona Cardinals, Chandler Jones is not far behind with a 94 overall as well. Rounding out the top-five, the newest acquisition of the Cardinals, JJ Watt also has a 94 overall.
Cam Jordan of the New Orleans Saints has 93 overall. Following behind Jordan is 2015 Superbowl champion, Von Miller, with a 93. Like their births, The Bosa brothers come one after the other. Older brother Joey has a 92, while younger brother Nick has a 90. Last but certainly not least is 2-time pro-bowler of the Green Bay Packers, Za’Darius Smith. He has an 89 overall.
As we reported before, more Madden 22 ratings will come out as the week progresses. June 28 is the reveal of the top running backs. It will be hosted by Beast Mode himself, Marshawn Lynch.
Let us know below if Madden 22 got the top edge rushers correct. Who do you believe should be in the top 10 but isn’t?
