In the past, defense has been extremely underrated in the Madden series compared to the offense, but finally Madden NFL 15 gives that side of the ball its chance to shine. With a number of new additions, the game is the most fun on defense it has ever been. One of the major new features is the ability to shed blocks, and the position that makes the most use out of that is probably the defensive tackle position. We told you about the defensive end position, but stuck right between the two defensive ends is the ultimate run stopper.
Ndamukong Suh is the easy number one choice at the position, dominating the position since college and never stopping once he hit the pros for the Detroit Lions. Suh comes with a 95 hit power and yet still is the most agile defensive tackle in the entire game, which is extremely impressive. Thanks to the new shed blocks ability mentioned above, Suh should have no trouble controlling the run game and getting to the quarterback a good bit of the time.
Look for Madden NFL 15 to officially release next Tuesday, August 26, and make sure to check out our review for the game as well.
