Madden 25 Player Ratings: Detroit Lions Offense Revealed

EA Sports has begun their annual hype campaign in anticipation of the release of the newest Madden video game. A big part of that is the release of player ratings, the offensive set of which is now public. Here is a look at how the Lions’ offensive players shake out, sorted from the top overall rating on down:

First Name Last Name Position Jersey Overall
Calvin Johnson WR 81 99
Rob Sims LG 67 89
Matthew Stafford QB 9 85
Dominic Raiola C 51 83
Reggie Bush HB 21 83
David Akers K 2 81
Mikel Leshoure HB 25 79
Brandon Pettigrew TE 87 79
Tony Scheffler TE 85 78
Riley Reiff LT 71 77
Joique Bell HB 35 76
Shaun Hill QB 14 76
Nate Burleson WR 13 76
Corey Hilliard RT 78 75
Montell Owens HB 34 74
Ryan Broyles WR 84 73
Mike Thomas WR 19 73
Larry Warford RG 75 72
Dylan Gandy C 65 71
Shaun Chapas FB 45 71
Jahvid Best HB 44 71
Bill Nagy RG 61 71
Michael Williams TE 89 70
Rodney Austin LG 74 69
Jason Fox RT 70 69
Derek Hardman LG 73 68
Kellen Moore QB 17 68
Chastin West WR 15 67
Theo Riddick HB 41 66
Devin Thomas WR 11 66
Joseph Fauria TE 47 65
Nathan Overbay TE 46 65
Kris Durham WR 18 65
Matt Veldman TE 86 63
Corey Fuller WR 10 63
Terrence Austin WR 16 60
Don Muhlbach TE 48 58
Patrick Edwards WR 83 56

Some quick thoughts:

  • Don’t get too hung up on seeing players like Devin Thomas and Bill Nagy listed. This is just the initial rosters that will ship with the game, expect the first roster update to be made on release day or shortly thereafter.
  • Calvin Johnson gets the best possible overall rating. Not surprising for the best possible wide receiver.
  • I understand Patrick Edwards was a relatively unknown, but a 56? With the expectation that Edwards makes the team this year, he may see one of the biggest initial ratings boost of any NFL player in the first ratings update.
  • The defensive ratings should be available tomorrow, be sure to check back then.
