Today, EA Sports revealed the complete “99 Club” for Madden NFL 20. Each of the last four days, EA revealed one member of the club in Madden 20, which will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC on August 2.
The four members of the Madden NFL 20 99 Club are: Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Seattle Seahawks middle linebacker Bobby Wagner, Chicago Bears defensive end Khalil Mack and Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Here’s an individual breakdown of each of the four members.
AARON DONALD | LOS ANGELES RAMS | DT
Aaron Donald has now been a 99 overall for three straight versions of Madden, and looks poised to challenge Peyton Manning’s record of six straight years (Madden 06-Madden 11). While there are three other 99 overall players this year, Donald is the clearly the best. Per EA, here are a handful of his best individual attributes:
- 99 Strength – Best in Madden 20
- 99 Power Moves – Best in Madden 20
- 98 Pursuit – Best in Madden 20
- 97 Block Shedding – Second-best in Madden 20
- 96 Finesse Moves – Second-best in Madden 20
Just as he is in real life, Aaron Donald is a game-wrecking force in the middle of the line of scrimmage on every single play. Beware this man on Madden 20.
BOBBY WAGNER | SEATTLE SEAHAWKS | MLB
Wagner is a first-time member of the 99 Club, but has long been an elite linebacker in the game. He boasts individual attributes of 99 tackle, 99 pursuit and 98 hit power, all of which are the highest for any player in Madden NFL 20.
Wagner unseats Carolina Panthers’ linebacker Luke Kuechly, who reached the 99 overall mark twice (Madden 17 and Madden 19), as the best linebacker in the game. Wagner’s elite coverage skills mixed with dominance against the run made him an easy choice for the 99 Club.
KHALIL MACK | CHICAGO BEARS | DE
Surprisingly, Khalil Mack is also making his 99 Club debut. Compared to the rest of the club, Mack doesn’t have as dominant ratings, but figures to be more of an all-around beast considering the perfect overall rating.
Mack features individual ratings like 97 power moves, 95 pursuit, 94 tackle and 94 jumping. He will be a handful for any offensive tackle in this year’s Madden.
DEANDRE HOPKINS | HOUSTON TEXANS | WR
Hopkins has officially taken the throne as the best wideout in Madden. Antonio Brown (Madden 19) and Hopkins are the only wide receivers to start the year at 99 since Calvin Johnson (Madden 13–Madden 15). Per EA, here’s a snapshot of Nuk’s individual ratings.
- 99 Catching – Best in Madden 20
- 99 Jumping – Best in Madden 20
- 99 Spectacular Catch – Best in Madden 20
- 99 Catch In Traffic – Best in Madden 20
- 99 Release – Best in Madden 20
There’s nothing else that needs to be said. Hopkins is unstoppable in Madden 20.
