With Madden 22 coming out this summer, there are lots of great options and plenty of deserving players but we've put together a list of the top 5 players who we think might make their way onto the Madden 22 cover.
The most obvious choice for the Madden 22 cover is reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers. Surprisingly, Rodgers has never been on a cover of Madden even though for the last decade he has consistently played at a very high level.
It makes a lot of sense that a big name player, playing for a big name franchise, at the most important position in the NFL would be the perfect fit for the Madden 22 cover.
As it stands right now, Rodgers has to be the odds on favorite for the Madden 22 cover.
Stefon Diggs may be the most unlikely of the players on the list to be on the cover. Some may argue he’s not even the best option on his team (more on that later). However, the appeal is certainly here for Diggs.
In his first season in Buffalo, Diggs proved why he’s one of the NFL’s most electric wide receivers. He led the NFL in receptions and receiving yards while helping the Bills secure their first division title since 1995.
But if Diggs is on this list, then why isn’t Davante Adams? After all, Adams led all players in receiving touchdowns and was a key part of Green Bay’s division title run.
Looking back at recent years, Madden has seemingly favored breakout athletes. Rather than go with established stars like Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson, they’ve opted for young up-and-comers like Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson.
Simply put, Diggs’ performance feels more like a main storyline to the 2020-21 season. He’d be a fine cover athlete, though there are a few others players who may be better suited to grace this year’s cover.
Isn’t it about time Aaron Donald gets on the Madden cover? I know I just said EA Sports tends to focus on young up-and-comers, but Donald did just win his third Defensive Player of the Year award.
Not only may Donald be the NFL’s best defensive player, but he’s arguably one of the best players in the entire league, maybe even the best — singular.
As great as Donald is, EA Sports seems to favor offensive players for the cover. Only three defenders have ever made it onto the cover: Ray Lewis (Madden 2005), Troy Polamalu (with Larry Fitzgerald on Madden 10) and Richard Sherman (Madden 15).
Adding Donald would be a fine way to honor a player of his caliber while putting emphasis on defense. It may not be the flashy pick, but Donald is well worthy of gracing a Madden cover at some point.
As vital as Stefon Diggs was to the Bills’ breakout season, no one was more important than Josh Allen. He was the face of Buffalo’s 13-3 campaign, which included their first trip to the AFC championship since 1988.
Allen’s breakout campaign saw him finishing fifth in passing yards and passing touchdowns while posting the fourth-most rushing touchdowns among quarterbacks.
The sole reason Allen isn’t the main contender for Madden 22’s cover athlete is recent history. As I said in an earlier slide, Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson were the last two cover athletes. Madden may not want to have a budding superstar quarterback grace their cover for a third consecutive season.
Either way, Allen was one of the most talked-about players of the season. He would be an appropriate player to be Madden’s next cover athlete, though one other player may have a better case.
All it would take is for Madden 22 to introduce a new stiff-arm, trucking animation, or some sort of other power run feature and Henry would be the guy.
It is incredibly rare for a running back to run for 2000 yards in a season and with running backs becoming less and less important in most NFL teams’ offenses, this could be one of the last good opportunities to put a featured back on the cover.
Look for Derrick Henry to be a strong contender to grace the cover.
