Every year we get asked who the best players at each position are.  Most people understand that the best players in Madden 15 aren’t simply the highest rated.  They are usually pretty highly rated but have other important things like a good speed rating or above average height.  Below we have compiled a list of the best players  at each position (not in any particular order) for Madden NFL 15.  This is by no means an exhaustive list but it is a pretty good starting point.

This list applies to Madden NFL 15 on the PlayStation 3, XBOX 360, PlayStation 4, and XBOX One.

If you think we left anyone out or if you have a problem with someone that is on the list that you think shouldn’t be, leave a comment below.

  • Best linebackers? Yeah let’s leave out the inaugural winner of the deacon award, which is given to the sack leader. Also one of the best defensive players over the last 10 years. Robert Mathis.

    • I can guarantee you that Manziel will be more used than Roethlisberger (and maybe Brees as well). If you were trying to trade for Manziel in a competitive league, it would take more than trading for Roethlisberger. Both those guys are great qbs though and much better than Manziel in the NFL but this list is strictly talking Madden.

    • I’m a brees fan but his deep throw is weak and the game doesn’t do a good job portraying his pocket presence.
