Madden 22 Ratings: Top 10 Quarterbacks to get ESPN Reveal

Madden 22 has dominated ESPN content all week long with ratings reveals, and four days of announcements has made it clear what we can expect.

Initial reveals tend to arrive on SportsCenter AM to kick off the morning, and sometimes that has included a 99 Club member.

The few times it didn't include a 99 Club member were lists for positions without anyone in that exclusive group, but there's no way they don't have a single quarterback with a 99 overall rating.

The initial reveal should take place at approximately 7:50am ET on SportsCenter AM on ESPN, with the list being dropped on the official Madden Twitter account moments later.


The schedule released by EA Sports ahead of this week also noted that Alex Smith will be on First Take at 10am ET to discuss the top 10 quarterbacks.

There is another note that additional ratings will be revealed later in the day, and throughout the week most secondary ratings drops have arrived between 11:30am ET and 11:50am ET.

We could see something unique like kicker ratings get dropped then, or we might get the next ten quarterbacks in line past the top 10 list.

There's also a SportsCenter Special tomorrow scheduled for 7pm ET on ESPN, hosted by Louis Riddick and Mina Kimes, which was advertised as including additional ratings reveals, player interviews, and breakdowns of how these ratings are determined.

Highest Rated Quarterback Predictions

As for who makes the list, we won't know for sure until everything is revealed tomorrow, but there are some names that are clearly in the running.

With Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes taking center stage as cover athletes for Madden 22, they're sure to be among the highest rated.
