Defensive LA Chargers who deserve a higher Madden rating:
Michael Davis (74 Overall)
For someone who made a big jump in 2020, they definitely deserved to jump higher in overall.
Michael Davis was one of the big bright spots in the secondary for the Chargers last season. Davis had three interceptions, 14 pass deflections, had a 60.6% completion percentage, and only gave up three touchdowns.
His receiving yards per time targeted was only seven and the passer rating for quarterbacks targeting Davis was 79.2. He also increased his tackles and tackles for a loss. For playing in all 16 games, this was a pretty good improvement for the corner out of BYU.
My problem is that it’s not a big overall improvement from the last season. Davis started the last season at a 73 overall, which is not a big jump from what he did in that season.
If I had to give Davis an overall, I would probably have to give him either a 77 or 78 since he has room for improvement.
Kyzir White (66 Overall)
This overall was personally the most disrespectful one of them all.
Kyzir White improved across the board during the 2020 season. He had 77 combined tackles, four tackles for a loss, three quarterback hits, and three pass deflections. All of these improvements, even after only playing in 11 games.
While these stats may not seem impressive, there’s a bigger point to White’s overall that needs to be addressed.
Before the 2020 season, he was given a 70 overall in Madden 21. Somehow after improving his stats, he went down to a 66. This being the main point why this new overall seems completely wrong for the linebacker. Hopefully, it can be changed throughout the season, but the initial overall is very disrespectful.
If I had to give Kyzir White an overall, I would give him a 72 or even a 73.
