Madden NFL 15’s release is fast approaching on both last-gen and current-gen consoles, so plenty have been wondering about how highly rated their favorite players are in the game. With quarterbacks being the face of a team typically, that is the one position that needs a highly rated player above all others. The truly elite quarterbacks in the league are almost always near the top of this list, but this time we also get the addition of a very young quarterback.
Peyton Manning returns to the top of the quarterback ratings after an absolutely outstanding season with the Denver Broncos, who narrowly lost the Super Bowl to the Seattle Seahawks. Speaking of the Seahawks, their quarterback Russell Wilson has probably made the biggest leap this season by joining the top five. He was a well respected and thought to be solid quarterback entering the 2013 season, but imagining him making this list at this time a year ago would have almost been insane. There is just something special about Wilson though, which is perhaps why I drafted him as my fantasy QB last year.
Beyond Wilson, the other three quarterbacks on the list are the ones you expect to be near the top. You can check out all five, including commentary by the Madden ratings master Donny Moore courtesy of the EA Sports website.
