The EA Sports Madden video game series is one of the most successful video game franchises ever.

Due in part to their exclusive partnership with the NFL, Madden offers games a chance to play as their favorite team and players.

Player ratings are a great promotional vehicle for the game, as fans and players alike debate what the game got right or wrong.

The Saints are the highest-rated overall team in the game with an 85, and one of 3 teams who have a pair of players rated in the top 16. (See entire Saints team roster ratings here)

Each player's overall ratings are a result of the cumulative ratings across various player attributes such as speed, awareness, etc.

Madden NFL 21 comes out on August 25th.

Here's a look at the 16 highest-rated players on the latest edition of the game, counting down to #1.
