The Dallas Cowboys are often underestimated, and Madden 23 reviews prove it
We all love the game of soccer, but not all of us can play in the NFL or the Dallas Cowboys. The annual Madden soccer game has released its player ratings for the 2023 edition of the classic video game. It’s that time of year when everyone discusses why some players are underestimated or overestimated.
In the grand scheme, Madden’s ratings don’t affect the real-world game, does it matter? Of course, they do. The players want their respect. Here, we take an in-depth look at some of the players on the Cowboys list who have been underestimated by the video game makers and prove why they deserve a higher score.
The 4 Most Underrated Dallas Cowboys in Madden 23
CB. Trevon Diggs (84 total)
Not a single player in the NFL has raised more controversy about how good they are than cornerback Trevon Diggs. While people feel strongly on both sides, the low rating of 84 should come as a surprise.
It’s tough to lead the NFL in any significant category, but Diggs has led two teams. Ironically, it is the basis for the debate about how to exaggerate or underestimate the angle. No. 7 led the NFL in blocking fairways and traffic yards were allowed.
Sometimes interceptions can be considered lucky, but not when you keep getting them. The Alabama producer had 11 picks this past season, the most since Everson Walls picked the same number in 1981.
Diggs’ past as a wide receiver has paid off so far. He dropped 21 passes last season, good for a second place in the NFL. In his career, the corner has grabbed his hands 49 times in 28 games. He prefers to risk jumping the ball and it shows.
Leading the league in a corner kick for the third year isn’t impressive but it’s understandable. Ironically, the beloved Marshawn Latimore gave up just 81 yards. All this while allowing for a higher completion rate, passing rating, more touchdowns, and his hands on the ball ten times less.
Since we’re talking about Lattimore, why not put 91 in general? His history as a dominant angler in the NFL amplifies his rating on Madden, but that doesn’t mean Diggs should be punished. He was one of the best “risk-for-biscuit” corners in the NFL during his two seasons in the league.
Shaquill Griffin has been tied for a colossal eighteenth place among the columns with the Alabama producer in terms of the overall rankings at Madden. The 32 Diggs ball touches in 16 games this past season are on par with Griffin’s 35 touches in the last 40 games. Other than yardage, Diggs top most other categories as well.
While I’m not at all a fan of how low the Dallas top-back ratings are, I understand the need to prove itself. I expect his total abilities to change from 84 to at least 87 as long as he cleans up some bugs. Given that Diggs has only played the corner for four years now (including college), he has plenty of potential left.
