It’s Madden NFL 23 Player Ratings Reveal week, and it doesn’t matter if you’re an Esports athlete or a casual gamer that only fires up the gaming console from time to time. Philadelphia Eagles fans everywhere can’t wait to take the field with some of the new talent this team has added since the 2021-2022 season ended with a thud in Tampa, Florida.

Electronic Arts released their rankings for wide receivers and edge rushers on July 18th and July 19th respectively. Running back ratings will be announced on July 20th. EA’s ratings for cornerbacks and defensive linemen will be revealed on July 21st before quarterback ratings, the members of their famed 99 club (the highest overall rating that a player can be given), and team ratings close the show on July 22nd.

There should be a lot of discussions before all is said and done.

Here’s a look at Madden NFL 23’s overall ratings for Philadelphia Eagles playing at EDGE and wide receiver.

If you’re most concerned with the ratings of our very own Birds, you’re in luck. Here’s a breakdown of the ratings for the Eagles playing the wide receiver, EDGE, and running back positions.

Wide Receiver

  • A.J. Brown, 87
  • DeVonta Smith, 83
  • Zach Pascal, 78
  • Quez Watkins, 76
  • Jalen Reagor, 74
  • Greg Ward Jr, 71
  • Deon Cain, 68
  • John Hightower 68

Instant analysis: You can probably argue that A.J. Brown should have received a higher rating. Due to some minor injury concerns that he’s had as of late, you can also understand where EA is coming from.

Everyone else’s rating seems to be relatively fair, but we would have bumped DeVonta Smith up to an 85. That’s just us.


  • Haason Reddick, 82
  • Brandon Graham, 80
  • Josh Sweat, 80
  • Kyzir White, 79
  • T.J. Edwards, 79
  • Derek Barnett, 74
  • Nakobe Dean, 71
  • Davion Taylor, 69
  • Kyron Johnson, 65
  • Patrick Johnson, 63
  • Jacoby Stevens, 62
  • Tarron Jackson, 62
  • Shaun Bradley, 61

Instant analysis: First thing’s first. Why is Nakobe Dean a 71? We haven’t seen Kyron Johnson play yet, so he’s tough to grade, and even though we expected Davion Taylor, Kyron Johnson, Patrick Johnson, and Jacoby Stevens to fall in the 60-69 area, everyone is rated too low here. Shaun Bradley definitely isn’t a 61-overall.
