Madden ratings season is in full swing, as EA is in the process of releasing overall grades for the game’s top players at the defensive end position. Who’s at the top, you might ask? It’s none other than a member of the ’99 Club,’ Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald.

Donald, who is also the highest-rated pass rusher in Madden 21, is the only defensive end in the game to receive a 99 overall rating. Texans DE J.J. Watt came very close to becoming a member of the ’99 Club,’ but he came up just short. Watt received a 98 overall rating from the Madden team.

Here’s the top five players at the position, sorted by overall rating:

  1. Aaron Donald – 99
  2. J.J. Watt – 98
  3. Cameron Jordan – 96
  4. Calais Campbell – 95
  5. Myles Garrett – 93
