Packers’ official Madden NFL 19 ratings are out

New, comments

Finally, David Bakhtiari and Mike Daniels are vindicated after strangely low ratings leaked for the two Packers earlier this summer.

Remember a few weeks ago when early player rankings for the Madden NFL 19 video game leaked out? We had serious gripes with several of the overall numbers assigned to players on the Green Bay Packers, most notably David Bakhtiari (88 overall) and Mike Daniels (83).

Since then, EA Sports confirmed that Aaron Rodgers does indeed have the 99 overall rating that was leaked, but on Tuesday the company published all of the initial ratings for this year’s game. It is hardly a surprise to any Packers fans that many of those early leaked ratings were way off, particularly for the two players named above.

Instead of a very good-but-not-great 88, Bakhtiari received a 97 overall, giving him the highest rating of any offensive tackle in the game. He is maxed out on awareness at 99 and has the best pass-block rating of any tackle at 96. Meanwhile Daniels got a much more appropriate 91 rating, which features component ratings of 95 awareness, 94 strength, and 89 block shedding.

The next few players on the list are up-and-coming stars: wide receiver Davante Adams and nose tackle Kenny Clark, both at 88 overall. Here are a few other items of note:

  • DeShone Kizer (72 overall) got a higher rating than Brett Hundley (70).
  • Both of the Packers’ second-year running backs received overall marks of 75, while Ty Montgomery earned an 81.
  • The Packers’ top rookie is first-round pick Jaire Alexander (77), followed by second-rounder Josh Jackson and fifth-round punter JK Scott (75)
  • The middle of the Packers’ offensive line is brutally underrated, particularly center Corey Linsley (77) and left guard Lane Taylor (73).

Here’s a look at the likely starting lineup for the Packers in the game:
