Madden 21 ratings leak reveals four players in 99 overall club

Madden 21 ratings leak reveals four players in 99 overall club

Reaching 99 overall in “Madden NFL 21” is an honor, and that honor will only go to four special players.

A 99 overall player shows you’re not only one of the best at your position, but one of the best players in the entire league. Madden ratings only go up to 99, so you have to have a special all-around talent for your overall rating to get that high. So it’s no wonder why only four players hit that mark in the 2020 video game.

EA Sports has already released some player ratings, mostly rookies. And on Monday, the 99 Club was leaked on Twitter ahead of the official announcement. Additional ratings will continue to be released ahead of the game’s release date.

Who are the 99 overall players in Madden 21?

The 99 overall players in Madden 21 at launch are Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Donald, Stephon Gilmore and Christian McCaffrey. The Chiefs quarterback getting 99 overall shouldn’t be a surprise. He was also 99 overall in Madden 20 as the cover athlete, and is arguably one of the most talented quarterbacks we’ve ever seen play.

Rams pass rusher Donald is another player who was 99 overall during the launch of Madden 20. His pass rush skills make him such an elite player, and he’s well deserving of back-to-back 99 overall ratings.

Patriots cornerback Gilmore is somewhat of a surprise, but he’s definitely deserving of being the best cornerback in Madden. He was a shutdown corner for New England in 2019, and should continue to dominate receivers in the virtual world.

Panthers running back McCaffrey became the youngest player ever to reach 99 overall in Madden 20. He’s the complete dual threat running back as he’s a dominant pass catcher out of the backfield while also being a force as a runner. His versatility is what helps improve his overall rating into 99.

In addition to being honored with a 99 overall rating, players were also gifted with swag from EA Sports.

Players received a black box that featured a 99 chain.

UPDATE: EA Sports claims more than four players earned a 99 overall rating. The leak only showed four players at 99 with a few other names sitting at 98. Some of the 98 overall players included George Kittle, Michael Thomas and DeAndre Hopkins.
