Just want to point out, they are OVR ratings at different positions, so they really can't be compared. Different calculations go into each position. I know, Sherman at safety would probably be rated higher in the game than Thomas at CB, but that is just a fault in the ratings system. In my opinion, the coverage values are slightly too important for OVR at safety in Madden in compared to the tackling values.

For the people scoffing at Byrd being #1:

No player has more total turnovers than Byrd in the last five years.
He is is also 2nd in interceptions for the last 5 years and could easily have been 1st had he not missed 5 games last year.

They can be compared to an extent. It is a numerical value to express how good a player is at what they do. What Madden is telling us is that Sherman is better at CB than Thomas is at safety. I don't believe that.

I also think it is no coincidence that the loud mouthed sherman gets the coveted 99 while the more reserved Thomas does not. I think it is evidence of how the ratings are becoming more involved in a marketing standpoint.

Also, if the overall for safeties is too heavily tilted towards coverage skills that makes Thomas' rating even more questionable.

Having said all that, I actually don't care all that much lol

Fwiw, Byrd has the same rating as the last update in 25, with the Bills-- 96.

I like Byrd but he shouldn't be over Earl Thomas. IMO Thomas is the best FS in the game right now.

Calling Earl Thomas the best safety is easy to do when he plays in the best secondary on the best defense in the league. Put him in the Bills secondary for the past few seasons and watch how quickly his numbers drop. At the end of the day though who really cares about these ratings? Everyone of us is either going to download the community rosters or update them ourselves.

Glad to see Byrd number one. Deserved.

He's been on a Bills D for years whilst Earl Thomas has been backed up by a great Defense.

Bills had a top 5 pass defense last year and have a great pass rush that helps out the guys in the secondary. No need to dog them out just to talk up Byrd. Buffalo has a problem on offense, not defense. Youre crazy if you think ET couldnt play well in buffalo with the number one pass rush in the league (sea was 18) and great corners.
