leads way for Browns in Madden NFL 20 ratings release

  • With training camp a little over a week away and August right around the corner, we're in the final stretch of summer tranquility in the NFL.
    That means it's time for EA Sports' powerhouse football simulation franchise to stir the internet with a massive release of its player ratings for the newest version of Madden NFL.
    With madden coins release less than three weeks away, EA dropped the entire league's digital stratification on Monday. Browns fans might be pleased with what they've found.
    Let's start with the highest rated Browns player in Madden NFL 20: Odell Beckham Jr.
    Beckham owns an overall mark of 96, powered by a maximum spectacular catch rating of 99, 96 for short and medium route running, 94 for speed and acceleration and an eye-popping 98 for agility. If you've ever seen Beckham's footwork in person, you'd agree with that last mark.
    Beckham has been a terror on the field since he stepped foot on one as a rookie in 2014, and his digital counterpart is, too. His presence alone should make the Browns a favorite choice of Madden players everywhere.
    It's perhaps the first time we've been able to write such a line since Madden exploded in popularity in the last 15 years (OK, the Browns were a popular pick of players in Madden NFL 09, too), and the reason for it stretches well beyond Beckham. There's also pass-rushing nightmare Myles Garrett (pro tip: use his power rush moves to your advantage), a 91 overall, multi-talented back Kareem Hunt (90) and shutdown corner Denzel Ward (88). Those three follow Beckham in the Browns' overall ratings, but there's a name we still haven't mentioned.Click Here
