Yesterday, EA Sports released their Madden 23 player ratings for the wide receiver and tight end positions, and several of Miami’s pass-catchers appeared among the top 10 in several key categories.

Madden NFL 23’s EDGE ratings (linebackers and defensive ends) were revealed earlier today. And the first Miami Dolphins player to appear in the top-10 in any pass-rushing category was Melvin Ingram — who possesses a top-10 finesse rating in this year’s game (90).

But that might’ve been the only #good that came from today’s ratings as several of Miami’s linebackers and defensive ends were criminally underrated. For starters, Melvin Ingram is the highest-rated pass-rusher with an 84 overall rating. That’s higher than Emmanuel Ogbah (83) and Jaelan Phillips (76), which to me doesn’t seem right — at least not Ogbah.

Andrew Van Ginkel is a 77, which seems fair, but most of Miami’s pass-rushers are rated low.

EA also released the player ratings for middle linebackers today, and despite some overalls that weren’t too kind to the unit, Channing Tindall’s speed (91) should be a breath of fresh air for those of us that like to user-control the MLB position.

However, Jerome Baker only being rated a 79 overall seems a bit low, and Elandon Roberts should probably be rated a few spots higher. Still, again, these ratings will increase as the season progresses, so it isn’t all doom and gloom.

In the end, Madden ratings really don’t mean all that much. But to the players and some fans, it is everything. I’ve played a lot of Madden throughout my life, and I can confidently say this is the most-electrifying Dolphins team I have ever played with.

EA Sports Madden 23 releases on August 17th.
