EA is back with another player rating reveal for Madden 17, and this time they’re going over the Top 5 defensive tackles. You can check below for the full list of ratings.
Donald is the only defensive tackle in Madden NFL 17 with 90+ acceleration. His ability to rush the passer from the interior of the defensive line can change the course of games. He is the ultimate disrupter and is tops in the league at his position with 83 speed.
Atkins has been the cornerstone of the Bengals defensive line for multiple seasons and looks to anchor it again in Madden NFL 17. Much like the #1 defender on this list, Atkins has the ability to take over games with his ability to get after the quarterback from the interior of the defense.
Cox has a career year last season and looks to continue having success for the Eagles in Madden NFL 17. He has the size and speed to play at all positions on the defensive line. Look to move him to defensive end in pass rushing situations.
In almost every matchup Suh will have the strength advantage over his opponent. Utilize him as the anchor of your run defense as most offensive linemen won’t get the push upfield needed to dominate in the run game. His 98 strength is tops in the league for defensive tackles.
Short played a big role in the success the Panthers had last season. He is a pure defensive tackle in that his game excels in clogging up the interior of the field with his strength and ability to chase down ball carriers.
