    Heck yeah! Bosa and Ingram gonna be sack kings.
    Can we view all ratings yet?

    Bosa was really good even as a gold player card in MUT; so if EA/Tiburon didn't change the traits, he should be awesome in M18.
    Here is a link to all the stats: (this file was posted by another person in the forum, just reposting here).

    I can't take too much issue with the guys on the list but I think it hammers home the point that it's time Madden move the base of this game to more scheme-specific roles so you can get love for pure edge rushers AND those guys like Mike Daniels who play that 5-tech.

    Couldn't agree more.

    Exactly. I would also love to see Wills and Sams instead of LOLBs and ROLBs
    I said this at EA Play to Clint and I'm glad that I saw it again in the Donald screenshot, but thank God that Frostbite allowed them to properly render the 49ers gold pants! They've been so shiny since going to ignite and now they're actually accurate! The only quibble with the actual ratings is Melvin Ingram being ranked above Joey Bosa. Bosa ripped up his opponents last year and I'm shocked that he's not at least 90 overall.
    I checked Aaron Donalds 40 time at the combine.
    It's 4.68. I didn't realize how fast he was.
    Gronk's combine 40 is the same and they both have
    the same speed rating, 83.
    EA must be using the combine numbers to factor in their
    ratings.

    Except when they pick and choose who not to use them for. Very inconsistent.

    No they're not otherwise King wouldn't have 83 agility.

    For a 3-4 DE he is impressively high and in the top 10

    Why are the PRC and AWR ratings the same for every defensive player in every roster? I've seen Clint say several times that they are used for different things. He even gave a fairly detailed account one time. If they are so different, why are they identical? And doesn't this throw off OVR totals and game play mechanics?
    Appreciate any insight you can give on that.

    Donald is good Watt is too high because of his back graham is fine jordah is about 2 pts high bennett is 2 pts low bosa needs to be a 92-95 pierre paul 2 pts high

    so donald goes from a 4-3 dt to 3-4 de and still is a 99? what experience has he in the 3-4? i thought 3-4 des were there to stop the run?

    he's still playing the same position, 3-technique. He'll line up outside shoulder of the weak side guard most of the time. Phillips is able to hybrid his 3-4 based on personnel. he's not stuck to a 'traditional' 3-4.
    As a 1-gap player, Donald's job will still be to disrupt the backfield and rush the passer just like b4.

    Well he played in a 43 in college and has his whole time in the pros. I will probably do a drop of his awareness to reflect the position change as part of the little tweaks I make on my personal roster.
