Frank Clark is Chiefs’ highest-rated edge rusher in ‘Madden NFL 23’

·1 min read

The folks at EA Sports are continuing to roll out the player ratings for the latest iteration of the Madden video game franchise. On Tuesday, they revealed both edge rusher and linebacker rankings across the league.

The Kansas City Chiefs aren’t known for having the strongest edge rusher depth. One could probably say it’s the biggest area of concern on the current 90-man offseason roster. That’d ring true with what the Madden NFL 23 rating adjustors saw from the group.

Frank Clark has the highest overall rating of any Chiefs edge rusher and that’s not a good thing. He received a 78 overall rating. Check it out:

For context, Madden rarely gives incoming rookie first-round draft picks overall ratings above 80. At pick No. 30, George Karlaftis received a 74 overall rating and he’s the team’s second-best edge rusher in terms of ratings. The next best is Mike Danna, a third-year edge rusher and a former fourth-round draft pick, at 69 overall.

If Clark truly is the best edge rusher for Kansas City this season, maybe that will at least mean he has improved from prior seasons. However, if the Chiefs’ pass rushers produce as they’re rated in the Madden video game franchise this year, the team is going to be in hot water on the defensive side of the ball.
