Let's go over who will be the best pass rushers in Franchise Mode, Face of the Franchise and more.
Aaron Donald - 99 OVR
Team: Los Angeles Rams
Aaron Donald is the clear-cut best defensive player in Madden 21. This year will be his 4th straight entry into the 99 Club, and there are no signs of him slowing down yet.
TRY AND STOP ME: Rushing the QB has more user-control this year
Donald has 99 strength, 99 power moves, and 97 finesse moves... That's a brutal combination.
JJ Watt - 98 OVR
Team: Houston Texans
JJ Watt is an NFL legend for the Houston Texans, and his reign near the top isn't over just yet.
THROWBACK: JJ Watt has been a huge problem for offenses in Madden games for some years now, and Madden 21 is more of the same
Clocking a 98 OVR rating in Madden 21 at 31 years old is a huge feat, and he more than fits the bill with the huge pressure he puts on offenses.
With 97 strength, 95 power moves, and 93 finesse moves Watt has the combination of power and technique that players will love.
Watt is certainly one to watch on edge rushes, and you're probably better off running the ball far away from where Watt lines up.
Khalil Mack - 97 OVR
Team: Chicago Bears
Khalil Mack really packs a punch in the outside linebacker spot for the Chicago Bears.
GRIZZLY RESULTS: QBs live in fear of Mack
Mack puts huge pressure on offenses as a blitzer, and you'll want him rushing on every play.
With 89 strength, 86 speed, 93 power moves, and 90 finesse moves he is a fast & powerful rusher.
If you run a 3-4 defense, Mack is an elite option.
Von Miller - 97 OVR
Team: Denver Broncos
Much like JJ Watt, Von Miller has maintained a level of defensive prowess for the Denver Broncos that far exceeds most players at the 31-year-old mark.
HIDE WHILE YOU CAN: The last thing you want on offense is Von Miller pointing at you
Miller is an explosive edge rusher. 86 speed and 90 acceleration combines with 84 strength, 94 power moves, and 90 finesse moves.
Fletcher Cox - 96 OVR
Team: Philadelphia Eagles
Fletcher Cox is a monstrous interior presence.
INSIDE THREAT: Fletcher Cox brings on-ball pressure, and is a nightmare for interior offensive linemen
As perhaps the most dangerous DT in the NFL today, Fletcher Cox generates an insane amount of inside pressure for the Philadelphia Eagles.
With 95 strength, 96 power moves, and 77 finesse moves he can crush a pocket from the inside, creating chaos for the offense.
Cameron Jordan - 96 OVR
Team: New Orleans Saints
Cameron Jordan is rarely considered elite, but his production speaks for itself.
His 93 strength, 97 power moves, and 85 finesse moves make him a beast of a pass rusher that can even kick inside if need be.
Chandler Jones - 95 OVR
Team: Arizona Cardinals
The Arizona Cardinals have picked up a new sense of vitality in the last couple seasons, and Chandler Jones is a huge piece to the puzzle.
Jones pairs 86 acceleration and 87 strength with 96 power moves and 92 finesse moves to be a deadly pass rusher.
