Here is today’s player rating reveal for Madden 17 as EA releases the Top 5 Middle Linebackers in Madden NFL 17. Really no surprises on this list as most of this group has been good for a couple of years now. You can find the full list of ratings below:

luke_panthers_Madden17Kuechly is the stereotypical linebacker and the leagues premiere defender in the box. He excels in every aspect of the game. His 86 speed ranks him near the tops in the league, while his coverage skills aren’t even close to being matched by another linebacker in the game.


 marshall_madden17

Marshall came onto the scene last season for the Super Bowl winning Broncos as a defender that can play sideline to sideline in coverage. His 85 speed allows him to matchup against most tight ends and half backs in the game.


 derrick_johnson_chiefs_madden17

Johnson rounds out the Chiefs trio of all-pro linebackers. He plays more of a coverage roll and will be called upon to defend tight ends in the seam.


 bobby_wagner_madden17

Wagner ranks among the fastest linebackers in the game. His 88 speed is faster than most tight ends on the field and occasionally opposing half backs. Utilize his speed by matching him up in man to man situations and let his athleticism do the rest.


 jamie_collins_madden17

Collins is one of the league’s best in terms of pure coverage ability. His 6’3” frame and 85 speed allow him to match up in man to man situations against opposing tight ends and half backs out of the backfield. He also has the rare ability to rush the passer with 93 power move.
