It was down to the wire for a pair of Badgers as to who would have the highest rating in Madden 23 among Wisconsin alumni.

Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt leads the way for defensive players out of Madison as he checks in with the highest rating of his career. Colts running back Jonathan Taylor is among the highest movers in terms of rating from the beginning of last year to the beginning of this year.

A number of other Badgers came in with impressive numbers, but Taylor and Watt lead the way. Here is a look at the best ratings for notable Badgers in the NFL:
