Re: Madden NFL 15 - Top Outside Linebackers

This is where we need to differentiate skillset at position.

3-4 DE and 3-4 OLB deserve their own category ranking.

I would not go as far as saying Nickel CB and Slot Recivers should be in separate rankings but the aforementioned positions should be ranked in a separate pile.

Vontaze Burfict deserves a 95+ OVR in his own right.

I would rate Mathis higher too were it not for him testing positive to PED's

Guys like Jamie Collins, Deandre Levy, Clay Matthews, Orakpo, Hightower, etc shouldn't be far behind him though
Collins has a ton of upside but he really only played the last part of the year. I can't wait to see what he does this year. He's a three down player.

He needs to build off last year this season before he is even considered in the top 10.

The ratings are subjective even though Donny says there based off stats. He rates Brady lower due to a down year statistically, but Mayo had a down year due to injury and he stays in the top 5.

It also seems some guys are being penalized for suspensions and others aren't.

Yea, i'm jumping the gun on him a bit but his massive upside is obvious.

Really happy to see Lavonte get some love. That guy was beast last year and snubbed from the Pro Bowl, yet still made All-Pro.

Ok, sorry, homer-rant off. I'd agree with the sentiments expressed thus far as well. This list look OK to me as well.
