Madden NFL 23 ranks Arkansas' 22 former football players (2023)

EA Sports has been slowly revealing everything over the past weekupdated player ratingsBecause of his wildly popular Madden video game and several former Arkansas football players scattered throughout the launch.

Best of Arkansas Sports gathered all the Razorbacks who turned pro into one roster and ranked them based on their overall rating (higher is better) on Madden NFL 23.

There are a few surprises on the list, but the top pair is what you'd expect. It's also worth noting that Trey Flowers and 40-year-old Jason Peters -- two of Arkansas' top NFL players in recent years -- were not included because they're currently free agents and haven't been vetted.

1.Frank Ragno, Detroit Lions - 87

Even after a season was cut short by a toe injury that required surgery, Frank Ragno's Madden rating dropped just one point and remains the highest among former Razorbacks in the NFL. It's hard to argue against that. When healthy, Raguenot is arguably even better than the fifth-ranked center in the league. He was named to the All-Pro Second Team in 2020, and in the four weeks since his injury, his 86.7 Pro Football rating ranks second among centers.

Of course, Raguenot is better as long as the former first-round pick is on the floor. He recently started a group called "Rags Remembers" in honor of his late father, Jon "Rags" Ragnow, who died unexpectedly of a heart attack in 2016 while Ragnow was in Arkansas. The foundation's purpose is to "help provide support for children" and families grieving the loss of a loved one by exposing them to nature.according to detroit newsHe also helped raise more than $50,000 Thursday at the Lions' inaugural "Dinner with Pride" event.

2. Hunter Henry, New England Patriots - 84

The only Arkansas football player to crack the top 10 is Hunter Henry, who ranks ninth, even though his rating has dropped three points since last summer. According to Madden, his best attributes are his catcher rating and toughness rating, which are 93 in each. In his first season with the Patriots, Henry caught 50 passes for 603 yards and a career-high nine touchdowns, developing into rookie quarterback Mac Jones' favorite target. He's been especially good in the red zone, scoring 90.2 points in Pro Football Focus -- the best mark of any tight end in the NFL.

3. Kamren Curl, Washington Commanders - 79

Former seventh-round pick Kamren Curl, who debuted as a rookie in 2020, landed on the PFF All-Rookie Team last season and became a full-time starter. He collected 99 tackles and broke 5 passes in his second year in the NFL, lookingPrepare to become a household nameIn 2022, Curl's overall rating is up three points and continues to rise from the 63 he scored initially as a rookie. According to Madden, his best attributes are Stamina (rated 91) and acceleration (rated 90).

t-4. Dre Greenlaw, San Francisco 49ers - 78

He returned late in the season and made the playoffs, but was injured. Once again for the NFC Championship game. When healthy, Greenlaw has proven to be a very capable linebacker in the NFL. According to Madden, his best attribute is acceleration (87), and despite missing most of the season, his overall rating remains at 78.

t-4. Deatrich Wise Jr., New England Patriots - 78

Deatrich Wise Jr. had 88 steals and blocks. In his five years in the NFL, he was a good situational pass rusher for the Patriots. He finished the season with 41 tackles, including three sacks, and improved his Madden rating by two points. Like Ragnow, Wise is making an impact off the field by backing Bridge 2 Trade, a program run by the Boys & Girls Club of Boston that exposes young people to alternative career paths in construction and other industries during six-week courses.

6.Trellen Burks, Tennessee Titans - 73

Treylon Burks was part of a loaded 16-man rookie class with a debut Madden rating of 70 or better. While some Titans fans worry about his health and asthma, Burks has all the makings of a great NFL player, including the acceleration to score 91 points from Madden and the speed and quickness to score 89 points.

7. Armon Watts, Minnesota Vikings - 70

The last former Arkansas football player to score over 70 in Madden was Armon Watts, who scored exactly 70, three points higher than last year. After starting just one game in his first two years in the league, Watts saw his role expand last year with five sacks and 46 tackles in nine starts. According to Madden, his best attributes are his strength and toughness, both rated 85.

8. McTelvin Agim, Denver Broncos - 67

While playing just seven games last year, McTelvin Agim had 1.5 sacks -- the first in his young career -- and three quarterback hits. He has played just 231 career defensive snaps over the past two years and has shown himself to be a reliable pass rusher when he struggles with the run.

t-9。jerry jacobs, Detroit Lions - 66

No former Arkansas football player's Madden rating has jumped more from a year ago than Jerry Jacobs, an undrafted free agent who became a rookie NFL starter with an eight-spot improvement. Unfortunately, his season was cut short by an ACL injury, but before that he started nine games and blocked seven passes and 34 tackles in 13 total games.
