  1. Fletcher Cox will shut down Ezekiel Elliot twice a year for a while hopefully

  2. Bobby wagner should be a 90 overall

  3. Richard sherman been down graded from a 99 in Madden 15 to a 92. Doesn’t Not make sense his performance has not changed, QB’s do not throw the ball his way, thats means hes a great player. Josh Norman had one good year hes top CB, no Super Bowl ring either

  4. In almost every matchup Suh will have the strength advantage over his opponent. Utilize him as the anchor of your run defense as most offensive linemen won’t get the push upfield needed to dominate in the run game. His 98 strength is tops in the league for defensive tackles. Short played a big roll in the success the Panthers had last season. He is a pure defensive tackle in that his game excels in clogging up the interior of the field with his strength and ability to chase down ball carriers.
