1. Kevin King, CB – 73 overall

Kevin King finally put the injury concerns behind him last season, staying healthy for most of the year. And it showed. King had a great season with the Packers, leading the team with five interceptions and also breaking up 15 passes.

King’s biggest impact always seemed to come in huge moments. Either a game-changing interception or a key pass breakup. And there’s good reason for thinking that. According to Pro Football, King was the highest-graded cornerback in the NFL in the red zone last season.

Well, that hasn’t translated to a particularly great “Madden” grade. In fact, it’s far worse than that. King ranks 93rd among cornerbacks in this year’s game. Ninety-third.

King’s overall rating is only just higher than Josh Jackson (71), who was only on the field for 10 percent of the Packers’ defensive snaps last season. King has a lower overall rating than Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Dean Lowry, and Rick Wagner.

For a player who was so instrumental in the Packers’ success last season, it’s surprising to see him have a rating anywhere below 80 overall. To see King’s rating as low as 73 is particularly surprising.
