As we count down to the release of Madden NFL 22, we are slowly getting the player rankings and we just got the running backs list. Former UTEP Miner Aaron Jones is sitting toward the top of the running back rankings at number 6. Here are the top 10 running backs in Madden.

  1. Christian McCaffrey: 97
  2. Derrick Henry: 96
  3. Nick Chubb: 96
  4. Dalvin Cook: 95
  5. Alvin Kamara: 94
  6. Aaron Jones: 91
  7. Saquon Barkley: 90
  8. Josh Jacobs: 89
  9. Ezekiel Elliott: 88
  10. Joe Mixon: 88

Not only is Aaron Jones up at number 6 but Ezekiel Elliott is also in the top 10 with a rating of 88. No clue on how easy it is to get Zeke to fumble the ball this year.

Here are the top 10 wide receivers:

  1. Davante Adams: 99
  2. DeAndre Hopkins: 98
  3. Tyreek Hill: 98
  4. Stefon Diggs: 97
  5. Julio Jones: 95
  6. Michael Thomas: 94
  7. Keenan Allen: 93
  8. Amari Cooper: 92
  9. Mike Evans: 91
  10. Allen Robinson: 90

It's nice to see Amari Cooper cracking the top 10. I'd be willing to bet by next season, maybe 2023, CeeDee Lamb will be right up there in the top 10.

Here are the top 10 tight ends:

  1. Travis Kelce: 99
  2. George Kittle: 96
  3. Darren Waller: 93
  4. Mark Andrews: 88
  5. Hunter Henry: 87
  6. Austin Hooper: 86
  7. Rob Gronkowski: 86
  8. Mike Gesicki: 85
  9. T.J. Hockenson: 85
  10. Dallas Goedert: 84

Here are the top 10 defensive linemen:

  1. Aaron Donald: 99
  2. Fletcher Cox: 94
  3. Chris Jones: 92
  4. DeForest Buckner: 92
  5. Cameron Hayward: 92
  6. Michael Pierce: 91
  7. Calais Campbell: 90
  8. Kenny Clark: 89
  9. Stephon Tuitt: 89
  10. Vita Vea:88

And here are the top 10 edge rushers:

  1. Myles Garrett: 98
  2. Khalil Mack: 96
  3. T.J. Watt: 94
  4. Chandler Jones: 94
  5. J.J. Watt: 94
  6. Cameron Jordan: 93
  7. Von Miller: 93
  8. Joey Bosa: 92
  9. Nick Bosa: 90
  10. Za'Darius Smith: 89

Tomorrow (Thursday, July 29th) the safeties and corners will have their ratings released. And then on Friday, July 30th, the quarterbacks will be released.
