It seems like EA Sports won’t stop until every position on an NFL team receives a Top 5 Madden 15 player ratings list. So far, the sports game development company has revealed the very best at the Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Fullback, O-Line and Defensive End positions, and now EA Sports have announced their Top 5 Defensive Tackles on their Ratings hub. The pack of elite players is much tighter at DT, sliding from 97 at the top and 93 at the bottom to show it’s a tight race.
Just like with defensive ends, defensive tackles’ main jobs are to take out the offensive players as close to the line of scrimmage as possible. Power Moves, Tackling, Hit Power and Strength stats determine how well they can perform while approaching the incoming guards and offensive tackles, while Pursuit, Acceleration, Agility and Awareness can be utilized better once the ball has been handed off to an offensive player.
Here are the Top 5 Defensive Tackles in the NFL, according to the Madden 15 player ratings.
