Madden NFL 23: All Outside Linebacker Ratings Revealed

Outside linebackers are relied on to be incredibly athletic and versatile. Since they must not only be able to defend against passes in both zone and man-to-man coverage, but they also need to provide assistance in run defense as well. Being that they carry such a great amount of responsibility and need to cover a wide area of the field, you will need to be careful which players you position at ROLB and LOLB in Madden NFL 23.

My initial impressions of the Madden NFL 23 outside linebacker ratings is that EA totally whiffed, yet again. Somehow the 2021 Pro Bowler and second team All-Pro recipient, Maxx Crosby, is rated lower than Danielle Hunter and Matthew Judon. Neither of which made the Pro Bowl or an All-Pro team. While Micah Parsons, the reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year candidate, barely cracked the top ten.

Then there’s the rookies, who we’re actually rated fairly well considering how harsh EA was with some other position groups. However, I still find it hard to believe that the best player in the draft (Aidan Hutchinson), is rated lower than players like Kyle Van Noy, and Justin Houston. Each of which are over 30 years old and have jumped around between various teams over the last few years. Also, Kayvon Thibodeux, who was widely regarded as the second-best player in the 2022 NFL Draft, is a measly 75.
