Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller has a 99 overall rating on the new Madden video game for a second consecutive year…
Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller has always been a 99 overall in our hearts, but now he’s actually part of the 99 overall club in the Madden video game series for consecutive years.
When fans ‘hit the sticks’ in August for the new Madden 19 game, there will be no editing of Miller’s skills required to get him up to a 99 overall rating.
Miller is officially part of the elite club for the second time.
Even as a 99 overall player, there are some debatable individual ratings the video game franchise gave out to Miller.
Most notably, EA Sports gave Miller ’87’ in the speed department, which is below average.
Miller ran a 4.53-second 40-yard dash, so perhaps they are pretty close there, but it would be interesting to see Miller’s speed compared with some other players in the game who ran a similar 40-yard dash time.
If I were buying the game, I would increase Miller’s speed up to at least 90 or 91, just to make things a little more realistic.
As EA Sports noted, Miller is the only non-quarterback to win Super Bowl MVP in the past four seasons. He was recently ranked ninth in the NFL by his peers among the top 100 players in the league, dropping seven spots from his second overall position a year ago.
Miller is one of the most dominant forces in the NFL and a very fun player to use in the Madden video game. Even with an 87-speed rating, he’s able to completely demolish offensive tackles with his combination of burst, lateral quickness, strength, and bend around the edge.
Getting to the opposing quarterback with regularity is his specialty. That doesn’t change whether it’s in an actual game or in the game — Madden.
