3. T.J. Ward
Overall Rating: 91
Sometimes, when you have one of the best Quarterbacks in the game, the defense can take 5 and play the game by ear, knowing that their offensive leader can put up 49 points just like that. Ward is not one of those players, opting to cut off the running play as it happens along the line. His 92 Hit Power, 88 Tackle and 86 Speed help him in that regard, but also the man can play the field well with his 84 Zone Coverage and 86 Pursuit. He can do it all, which is why he’s ranked so high in the Madden 15 player ratings.
