A player’s rating on any Madden game is an indication of their star power in the National Football League. Now, the full list of player ratings for Madden NFL 23 has been unveiled.

Hawkeyes Wire took a look at which players were the overall top 25 highest-rated players. With an overall rating of 97, one former Iowa Hawkeye was among the top 25 highest-graded players on Madden NFL 23. Of course, that player is former Hawkeyes tight end George Kittle.

Kittle has carved out a reputation as one of the premier tight ends in all of the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers. In 2019, the 6-foot-4, 250 pound tight end picked up Associated Press first-team All-Pro honors. Last season, Kittle registered 71 grabs for 910 yards and six touchdowns.

With that in mind, naturally, Kittle will be one of the highest-rated former Big Ten stars in Madden NFL 23. Is he at the very top? Which other NFL players comprise the top 25 highest-rated former Big Ten stars in Madden NFL 23?

Let’s take a look below at the complete top 25 highest-rated Big Ten players in Madden NFL 23.
