The only thing harder than trying to get around Washington Redskins tackle Trent Williams on the football field is finding ways to rack up sacks against him in Madden.
EA Sports has slowly been releasing player ratings for Madden 18 – which goes on sale Aug. 25 – and Williams cracks the top five for offensive linemen, tied for the second highest overall rating (95) along with Dallas Cowboys guard Zack Martin.
Baltimore Ravens guard Marshal Yanda is the top rated offensive lineman at 96 overall, while Cowboys Tyron Smith and Travis Fredrick also crack the list.
"Seems almost fitting that the player fending off the remaining flood of Cowboys on this list is a player on their biggest rival," EASports.com writes. "Williams' 95 Strength is beaten by only two other players amongst O-linemen, Russell Bodine and Kyle Friend. Base blocking stats, Williams scores a 94 Run Block and 95 Pass Block, the best combo of any big man. However, his Impact Blocking rating is an 83, falling short of everyone else in the top 5 by at least seven points."
Additional ratings for Williams: 82 acceleration, 76 speed and 71 agility.
Last year in Madden 17 Williams was the sixth-highest rated offensive lineman with a 92-overall rating.
