The release of player ratings on Madden is an annual summer tradition. EA Sports’ flagship game has become a staple in the football community. The Baltimore Ravens’ roster is stacked with standout players. But they also added plenty of speed via the NFL Draft.
All of the detailed ratings haven’t been released yet, so we don’t know what Marquis ‘Hollywood’ Brown’s speed will he rated. No rating was released for first-round pick Parrick Queen either.
Let’s take a look at a few of their top ratings. It all starts with reigning MVP Lamar Jackson who also appears on the cover of Madden ‘21. Jackson received a 94 rating which placed him third out of the QBs behind Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson. Jackson offered his thoughts regarding the rating recently on Sportscenter.
“A 94? A 94?! Aww. I wish it was better. But hey, it’s [better] than last year. I guess we can roll with it until the season starts,” Jackson said.
Madden gave Jackson a 96 speed rating which fits his explosive playmaking ability.
Entering the 2019 season, Jackson’s rating was a 79 on last year’s Madden. His stellar play caused a ratings increase via downloadable updates as the season continued.
Last season, Jackson proved that he was a legitimate quarterback, dispelling the foolish pre-draft ideas that he should switch to running back or wide receiver.
A few of the Ravens rookies got some love from Madden as well. Second-round pick J.K. Dobbins was the highest rated rookie running back at 75 overall. His 91 speed and 90 acceleration highlighted his ratings.
Wide receiver Devin Duvernay was a 71 overall but he came in at 92 for his speed and 91 for his acceleration. Fellow rookie receiver James Proche checked in with an 88 speed and 90 acceleration.
The top 10 Ravens player ratings in Madden ‘21 are as follows:
Calais Campbell – 95

Ronnie Stanley – 93
Marlon Humphrey – 89
Earl Thomas- 88
