Ranking the Most Important Defensive Positions in Madden

How would you rank the most important defensive position in Madden? Obviously the importance of each position will vary depending on the style of defense that you play.

I would argue that in any formation in Madden it should always start with cornerback. When you have an elite corner like Asomugha it's key to slowing down the opponents passing game, and in some cases shutting down an entire side of the field.

How I would rank the most important defensive positions in Madden...

In a 4-3
1- Cornerback
2- Middle Linebacker
3- Defensive End
4- Defensive Tackle
5- Outside Linebacker
6- Safety

In a 3-4
1- Cornerback
2- Middle Linebacker
3- Outside Linebacker
4- Nose Tackle
5- Defensive End
6- Safety

What do you guys think?

Re: Ranking the Most Important Defensive Positions in Madden

I would have to agree that a strong cornerback is a great player to build around and is key having a solid defense. I also thinks its key to have at least one good defensive end or linebacker to stop the run game as well. But definitely cornerback.

Haha that has nothing to do with it. Revis is the best corner in the league.

Re: Ranking the Most Important Defensive Positions in Madden

See I have a problem with Madden, DE's in the 4-3 should be thos most important because if you get pressure off the edges, your corners wont have to stick so long, and your safeties wouldn't be too troubled. But in Madden there are no dominant DEs that you can let AI handle getting to the QB.

Just like in the 3-4 in Madden. You get these 300 lbs DE's and the big cloggers in the middle like 330+ but each one only demands one blocker. . . really ? So I'll get back to this thread when I play the game and see Vince Wilfork or Haynesworth or even Trent Cole can demand a double team, or can get pressure by themselves if not the most important for any scheme will be your secondary then LBs.

Re: Ranking the Most Important Defensive Positions in Madden

Good thread!

I'm surprised that safety isn't rated higher on the list as far as importance in Madden goes. 90% of the guys I've played use either their MLB or their FS and the ones with the best stick always go with the FS. I wish DE and DT were more important, but truthfully, there's almost no differentiation between the elite and the average at those positions.

Because of that missing aspect, I don't really see much difference between 3-4 and 4-3 as far as the importance of the positions. I run 3-4 because I love having a couple of stud ILBs to wreak havoc on the O-line.

1) MLB
2) S
3) CB
4) OLB
5) DL
