As another football season approaches, a new addition of the Madden series releases. Here are a few of the top Seahawks' ratings that will be launching with Madden 24.
Need For Speed
Cornerback Riq Woolen burst onto the scene last season, becoming one of the top defensive backs in the league as a rookie after tying the league lead in interceptions with six. He was able to showcase his 4.26 speed on the field and that is reflected in his speed rating in the game. The second-year cornerback was given a 98 speed rating, making him tied for the second fastest player in the game regardless of position.
Let it Fly
Wide Receiver Tyler Lockett is amongst the top of his position group in multiple rating categories. The veteran wideout is tied for second overall in catching with a rating of 98, only one point off from the highest possible rating. Lockett has proven to be a dynamic deep threat throughout his entire career, which Madden has recognized, giving him the eighth highest deep route running rating in the game with a rating of 90. Geno Smith was given the fourth highest deep throw accuracy mark in the game with a rating of 89. The combination of Smith and Lockett gives players one of the most lethal deep passing threats in the game.
Offenses will have to keep their heads on a swivel at all times as the Seahawks boast the top two players in terms of hit power for Madden 24. Safety Jamal Adams leads the way with a hit power rating of 95, while Bobby Wagner ranks second in the league with a rating of 93. The return of this duo will give the Seahawks one of the most dangerous defenses in the league.
Top Of Their Class
Rookie first round picks Devon Witherspoon and Jaxon Smith-Njigba are the highest rated rookies at their positions, both receiving a 78 overall. Witherspoon, the fifth overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, joins a deep and talented secondary this season and looks to make an immediate impact. Smith-Njigba was also given the highest catch rating of all rookies in the game with a rating of 87. After a historic 2022 rookie class, this season should be no different with these two leading the way.
The Seahawks held their second practice of Training Camp on a sunny Thursday afternoon at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.
