The release of the player ratings for the EA Sports flagship series, MADDEN NFL, is an unofficial holiday for NFL fans and gamers. If you were on Twitter yesterday you could look at any NFL team account and see not only graphics for their highest rated players but also LIVE REACTION pieces from said players, who usually complain about being rated too low.

Per ESPN, Iowa has an impressive 37 players in the NFL but only 28 were fortunate enough to receive MADDEN 20 ratings. They are:

Player Team Position Madden Rating
C.J. Beathard San Francisco 49ers Quarterback 59
Austin Blythe LA Rams Center 81
Ike Boettger Buffalo Bills Guard 51
Bryan Bulaga Green Bay Packers Offensive Tackle 85
Adrian Clayborn Atlanta Falcons Defensive End 77
Mike Daniels Green Back Packers Defensive Tackle 87
James Daniels Chicago Bears Center 77
Carl Davis Cleveland Browns Defensive Tackle 68
Andrew Donnal Detroit Lions Offensive Tackle 53
Noah Fant Denver Broncos Tight End 74
James Ferentz New England Patriots Center 50
Adam Gettis Atlanta Falcons Offensive Tackle 60
Anthony Hitchens Kansas City Chiefs Linebacker 77
T.J. Hockenson Detroit Lions Tight End 77
Amani Hooker Tennessee Titans Safety 68
Micah Hyde Buffalo Bills Safety 86
Josh Jackson Green Bay Packers Cornerback 75
Josey Jewell Denver Broncos Linebacker 71
Jaleel Jackson Minnesota Vikings Defensive Tackle 67
Desmond King LA Chargers Cornerback 86
Christian Kirksey Cleveland Browns Linebacker 75
George Kittle San Francisco 49ers Tight End 90
Casey Kreiter Denver Broncos "Tight End" 40
Greg Mabin San Francisco 49ers Cornerback 67
Anthony Nelson Tampa Bay Buccaneers Linebacker 66
Ben Niemann Kansas City Chiefs Linebacker 60
Riley Reiff Minnesota Vikings Offensive Tackle 67
Brandon Scherff Washington Redskins Guard 87
Marshal Yanda Baltimore Ravens Guard 91

A new notes:

  • It comes as no surprise that Yanda continues to be Iowa's best rated player. The veteran guard is not only one of the best guards in the NFL but one of the best guards of all time.
  • George Kittle's ascension was faster than the speed of light.
  • In addition to Yanda, three other offensive lineman have ratings of above 80: Blythe, Bulaga and Scherff.
  • Hockenson is the highest rated rookie. Fant checks in right behind him.
  • Micah Hyde still getting mad respect.
  • James Ferentz? Still getting that MADDEN money.
  • Desmond King is only getting better, right?
  • Casey Kreiter at 40? No respect for the art of long snapping SMH. 
  • C.J. Beathard with a rating of 59? Pistols at dawn, EA Sports.
