Cornerback Tyson Campbell is one of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ most intriguing players heading into the 2022 NFL season. But don’t tell the Madden programming team, who don’t think highly enough of the former Georgia Bulldog and gave him what it feels like a low rating.
EA Tiburon ratings have been releasing ratings throughout the week and they dropped the ones for cornerback Thursday. Former Jaguar Jalen Ramsey got the highest mark at 98 and Jaire Alexander (Green Bay Packers) landed at No. 2 with a 94 rating. Tre’davious White (Buffalo Bills) had the third-highest at 92.
Stephon Gilmore (Indianapolis Colts) earned the top rating among AFC South cornerbacks (91) and teammate Kenny Moore finished second with an 87 mark. Shaquill Griffin finished third at 84 and Darious Williams was next with an 82. On the other hand, Tyson Campbell got a surprisingly low 74 overall rating.
Here are all the ratings for all the Jaguars cornerbacks in Madden 23.
- Shaquill Griffin (84)
- Darious Williams (82)
- Tyson Campell (74)
- Tre Herndon (73)
- Chris Claybrooks (68)
- Gregory Junior (65)
- Xavier Crawford (65)
- Montaric Brown (64)
- Josh Thompson (62)
Madden 23 got it with most but not all Jaguars cornerbacks
Shaquill Griffin’s rating in Madden 23 would be a bit higher if he made a few more big plays but he played pretty well in his first year in Jaguars uniform and should be even better in 2022. After all, the front office fortified the front seven this offseason, which should in turn benefit the secondary.
Darious Williams was CB2 for the Los Angeles Rams and should give the Jags’ cornerback group a boost. He’s set to line up the slot in 2022, and while he’s used to playing in the boundaries he’s got the skill set to thrive inside.
All things considered, Griffin’s and Williams’ ratings seem fair, but what about Campbell? 74 seems to be too low when you take into account that he led Jacksonville in interceptions last year. Sure, he was off to a slow start but that was mainly due to being miscast as a nickel. Once he moved to the boundaries and recovered from a foot injury he was dealing with early in the season, his play improved significantly.
Maybe EA Tiburon gave Campbell a low rating because he’s just played one season in the NFL. That seems to be the most rational explanation but if he picks up where he left off, not only will he get a higher mark next year but he will also become one of the top young cornerbacks in the league.
EA Sports is almost done revealing all position groups. Only quarterbacks are left and they will be revealed Friday, the same day as the 99 Club and all 32 teams’ overall ratings.
