3. The whole Cowboys safety room

The Cowboys might have the best safety trio in the entire league with Donovan Wilson, Jayron Kearse, and Malik Hooker. Yet, all three didn't receive high enough overalls in the initial Madden 24 ratings.

Hooker received the best overall out of the bunch with an 82 overall, while both Wilson and Kearse landed at 81 overall.

Hooker's overall ties him with Baltimore Ravens safety Kyle Hamilton and Washington Commanders safety Darrick Forest for the 26th-best safety overall. Wilson and Kearse come in tied with five other players for the 29th spot.

Hooker has rejuvenated his career in Dallas. The former 2017 first-round pick had a great 2022 season with three interceptions and a career-high 62 tackles. He has now totaled over 100 tackles in two years with the Cowboys.

Wilson was arguably the best Cowboys safety last season, so his rating definitely deserves to be higher. He led the team with 101 tackles and also added seven tackles for loss, nine quarterback hits, and five sacks.

Even Kearse, who missed a couple of games due to injuries, was a menace on Dallas' defense. Following a 101-tackle season in 2021, the 29-year-old veteran added 77 tackles last year with five passes deflected and seven tackles for loss.

All three overalls appear to be low for Dallas' three-headed monster.

Adjusted Madden 24 Ratings: Hooker (83), Wilson (84), Kearse (84)
