New Orleans Saints fans, football fans, and video game fans all around the world were excited for the release of Madden 22. Though the game has faced many criticisms in the past few years the game will still be bought by millions of people.
The ratings of players have always been a good debate for fans throughout the year. Whether a rating is too high or too low, everyone has an opinion. Of course, the Saints players’ ratings are also up for debate, but there are some ratings that flat out don’t make sense.
New Orleans Saints Madden ratings – No. 3: David Onyemata
David Onyemata has continued to be one of the most underrated players in the league. Madden 22 doesn’t do him any justice either, as he’s listed as an 82 overall in the game, this is just too low. Comparing him to others in the game, giving him an 82 overall is just crazy.
Players at the position like Tyson Alulau, Sebastian Joseph-Day, and Grover Stewart are all higher overalls. Last season Onyemata had more QB hits, sacks, and tackles for loss than all of these players.
Pro Football focus gave Onyemata a season grade of 88.2. Pro Football Focus uses advanced analytics and film to grade players based on how they play. The grading system is based on a 0-100 scale. An 88.2 grade is very impressive.
Only one of these players had a better Pro Football Focus grade better than Onyemata. To put in perspective, Aaron Donald was given a grade of 94.2. Aaron Donald, to most NFL fans, is easily the best defensive tackle in the league. A fair rating for Onyemata would be an 85 or 86 overall.
