Defensive LA Chargers who deserve a lower Madden rating:
Chris Harris Jr. (87 Overall)
This first lower is someone who shouldn’t be as high because of their short season.
Chris Harris Jr. did not play much during the 2020 season due to injury. In his nine games started, he had one interception, two pass deflections, and 37 combined tackles. All of these being career lows for Harris.
The corner did have a completion percentage allowed of 57.9% and gave up 4 touchdowns, but the problem for Harris was him missing games.
Somehow he earned the same overall he got in Madden 21, even after he didn’t play the full season and had lower numbers. While I don’t think Harris is a bad player, it just makes sense to be a little lower since he didn’t have much going for him this last season.
If I had to give Harris an overall, I would probably have to give him an 83.
Nasir Adderley (73 Overall)
This overall was the hardest to pick since most defensive players had good overalls.
Nasir Adderley had a pretty mediocre year for starting in almost all games during the season. He had one interception, three pass deflections, and 69 combined tackles. While he has improved, his coverage was not the best during the season.
His completion percentage allowed was at 71% and had a 133.7 passer rating allowed during the season. Though his coverage was not good, he did well in the kick return game. He had 11 kick returns for 318 yards, which gave him an average of 28.9 yards per return.
It was hard to say Adderley’s overall should’ve been lower, but it wasn’t really by much. There also weren't many defensive players that I think should’ve gone lower.
If I had to give Nasir Adderley an overall, I would give him a 71.
