2. Trevon Diggs (87 overall)

Those who make the ratings at Madden seem to not like cornerback Trevon Diggs, who just inked a five-year, $97 million extension with the Cowboys. In Madden 23, Diggs entered the game as an 84 overall -- tied for the 18th highest cornerback rating.

Diggs got boosted up to an 87 overall in Madden 24. That rating places the Cowboys star tied for the 11th-best cornerback with Atlanta Falcons cornerback A.J. Terrell Jr., San Francisco 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward, and Washington Commanders cornerback Kendall Fuller.

Diggs also expressed his frustration with Madden after learning about his overall.

Diggs has a right to be upset with his rating. The 24-year-old corner has 14 interceptions, 37 passes deflected, two Pro Bowl appearances, and a first-team All-Pro selection over the past two NFL seasons.

Since 2021, only Darius Slay and Jalen Ramsey have been named to back-to-back Pro Bowl selections like Diggs. And just one player (Ramsey) has made the Pro Bowl in both years with at least one All-Pro selection during that span.

The biggest knock on Diggs will be his aggressiveness on defense. He does give up big plays from time to time and people always seem to remember that most about his game. But the former Alabama wide receiver does make up for it in other ways. He had 11 interceptions in 2021.

Diggs will also enter the game with an 86 catch rating, 82 spectacular catch, and 76 pursuit, three overalls that seem a bit too low for the All-Pro corner.

Adjusted Madden Rating: 90
