While Josh Norman felt he played like a Pro Bowler in his first season with the Washington Redskins, you might have to play at an All-Pro level in Madden 18 if your buddies are going to have any chance getting past the cornerback.
On the last edition of the popular video game, Norman checks in with 90-overall rating, fifth highest among cornerbacks.
While this is a slight dip from his 94-overall rating which was tops among cornerbacks in Madden 17, he's still a player Redskins fan will want to utilize.
"Norman's passion for football and personality make easy headlines. For all the attention the sports world gives Norman, it's easy to forget that Norman is one of the smarter players in the NFL," EASports.com writes. "Along with being physically capable to cover anyone, Norman is constantly reading QBs to cause a turnover. He scores a best in class 95 in Awareness and Play Recognition. Norman deservedly rounds out the top 5."
EA Sports has slowly been releasing these rankings throughout the week, as tackle Trent Williams also makes an appearance on the top 10 rated offensive linemen with a 95-overall rating. That's tied for the second highest mark among players at the position group.
