GILMORE ISLAND: He’s an elite cover corner

The winner of last season’s Defensive Player of the Year, Gilmore is an elite coverage player that comes with 99 man coverage and 99 press!

Four in a row for Aaron Donald

The unstoppable Rams defensive end Aaron Donald is 99 OVR once again.

His place as the ultimate wrecking ball on defense was basically guaranteed after another remarkable season. Good luck getting him blocked.

Patrick Mahomes is 99 OVR

The first member of the 99 Club is confirmed!

Unsurprisingly, it’s Patrick Mahomes.

Christian McCaffrey joins 99 Club

The do-it-all back gained the maximum rating toward the end of Madden 20, so it’s not a surprise to see him start this year’s game with the top rating.

Mahomes is among four players leaked to be in the 99 Club over the weekend.

LIKE NO OTHER: Aaron Donald has been a force of nature in the NFL

Reportedly joining him will be Aaron Donald, who was 99 OVR last year too, Christian McCaffrey, and Stephon Gilmore.
