EA Sports is busy unveiling its Madden NFL 16 ratings for the top players at each position. On Monday, the ratings were revealed for the five best outside linebackers in this year's version of the game, and the Detroit Lions' DeAndre Levy made the list with a 93 overall rating. Here are some details on how Levy's rating came to be:
Levy’s still waiting for his first Pro Bowl appearance, but he’s already turned plenty of heads around the league. He starts with 95 Play Recognition, and adds 96 Tackle and 96 Pursuit.
