EA Sports has really been churning out the Madden 15 player ratings each day for over a week now. They’ve gone through the top 5 players at each of the following positions already: Quarterback, Running Back, Fullback, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Offensive Line, Defensive End, Defensive Tackle, Middle Linebacker and Outside Linebacker. Now they’re starting to wind down and approach the finale, as EA Sports has recently revealed their top 5 cornerbacks within the game.
With the wide receivers giving the opposing quarterback the best chance to make a quick score, defending cornerbacks have to be quick, prepared and talented. Fast corners will benefit from Speed, Agility, Acceleration and Jumping stats in order to get and stick with the play. Smart corners will benefit most from Man Coverage, Return, Zone Coverage, Pursuit and Play Recognition stats in order to know where the ball is flying and how to stop it. Finally, corners that rely on talent alone benefit from Catching, Strength, Press, Elusive and Juke stats.
With that in consideration, here are the top 5 cornerbacks according to the Madden 15 player ratings.
