Along with the anticipation of the start of the NFL season, every August brings a high level of suspense for the new Madden game from EA Sports. The yearly NFL franchise is one of the first ways fans can get a taste of regular season football, even if it’s simulated on a video game.
So how did some of the Buccaneers’ best offensive players rank during the making of the new game? Here is just a sample of some of the best Bucs on offense in Madden 25.
- Carl Nicks is the highest rated Buccaneer on offense, coming in at 95 overall. The dominant left guard has a 96 strength rating, as well as high marks in all of the blocking categories.
- Vincent Jackson is the next Buc on the rankings list, with a 92 overall score. His combination of speed and strength get him off to a good start, and his reliable 94 rating in catch will make him a great target for the virtual version of the Buccaneers.
- Doug Martin is the only other Buccaneer on offense to finish above a 90 rating in the game, as the young running back has high scores across the board, but lacks in awareness, which is EA Sports’ way of throttling the highly-talented but experience-lacking Martin.
- Josh Freeman comes in at 82 overall, with awareness also dragging him down a bit. His throwing power is an outstanding 97, but his accuracy is only a 79.
- The fastest Buccaneer? That would be track star Jeff Demps, who comes in at 98 in the speed department.
- The slowest Buccaneer is right tackle Demar Dotson, who still sports a 79 overall despite a speed ranking of 49.
- And in the Madden world, there is no QB controversy. Mike Glennon has a 66 overall ranking, tied with practice squad QB Adam Weber, and a full 4 points behind veteran Dan Orlovsky. Glennon does boast a 95 in throwing power, however, so you can still air it out with the Buccaneers rookie’s virtual avatar.
