The Green Bay Packers will be a fun team to play with in the “Madden NFL 22” video game which comes out later this summer.
“Madden” ratings always create plenty of conversation among fanbases, who believe some players deserve a better rating while others are rated too highly.
With a month to go until the game is released, let’s have some fun and predict the Packers’ top five ratings on offense.
Davante Adams: 99
Adams has to join the “99 Club” this season, right? The best receiver in football a year ago, Adams led the league in receiving touchdowns with 18 and also put up 1,374 receiving yards, despite missing two games through injury.
Adams is on top of his game and should be the leading receiver in “Madden” this year.
David Bakhtiari: 97
Bakhtiari could miss the start of the season with a torn ACL, but in the virtual world, he’ll be ready to go in Week 1. Consistently one of the best pass-protectors in the league, the Packers’ All-Pro left tackle should again be given a top “Madden” rating in 2021.
Aaron Rodgers: 96
It seems strange to see the reigning MVP third on this list, but I just can’t see Rodgers being given a 99 rating and will fall a little short. Even in an MVP year when he threw 48 touchdown passes, Rodgers’ rating never went higher than 96 last year and he finished the season with a 95 rating.
But hey, at least it’s not the laughable 89 rating he began last year with.
Aaron Jones: 91
Jones’ rating should again be in the 90s after consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and his first Pro Bowl selection in 2020. Jones is fun player to play with on “Madden” as he is an explosive runner and can be used on all three downs.
Jones likely won’t be the top-rated running back in the game, but he shouldn’t be far off.
Elgton Jenkins: 88
If I were making the call, I’d have Jenkins’ rating in the 90s too. He made the Pro Bowl as a guard last season but played in all five offensive line positions at some point. Given his consistency, great play, and versatility, Jenkins should have a higher rating.
That said, I see his rise in “Madden” being a slow one. An 88 rating would be an upgrade from last year, but only a small one.
