Madden 23 – Top 10 Cornerbacks
Jalen Ramsey – LA Rams – 98 OVR
Surprising no one, Jalen Ramsey takes the top spot among cornerbacks in Madden 23. Perhaps more surprising is how much higher rated he is than the next closest cornerback. Ramsey’s reveal means that there are now three Rams players among the top 5 currently revealed players in this year’s Madden.
Jaire Alexander – Green Bay Packers – 94 OVR
Jaire Alexander is a defensive diamond in the rough for a Packers team which is historically found wanting. Alexander spent a chunk of the 2021 season off the field nursing injuries, but he finished the 2020 season as at least one outlet’s choice as number one cornerback in the NFL.
Tre’Davious White – Buffalo Bills – 93 OVR
Though it’s been a few seasons since the Bills held the league’s best pass defense, Tre’Davious White serves as proof that Buffalo’s defense still has potential. White tore his ACL at the end of the 2021 season; Hopefully, he comes back to both the NFL and Madden 23 strong.
Darius Slay Jr. – Philadelphia Eagles – 92 OVR
