Darius Slay ranked as top-5 CB in latest Madden rankings release
In the latest release of Madden 23 rankings, EA Sports revealed that Eagles cornerback Darius Slay has been awarded a 92 over all rating, good for Top 5 in the NFL.
Only three cornerbacks across the NFL are rated higher than Slay in Madden 23. Jalen Ramsey (98), Jaire Alexander (94), and Tre’Davious White (93). Denzel Ward is tied with Slay at a 92.
Slay put together an All-Pro caliber season in 2021, locking down top receivers game in and game out and even finding his way into the end zone a few times. While Slay’s overall rating is 92, his zone coverage sits at 98, good for 2nd in the NFL just behind Jalen Ramsey (99)
Darius Slay’s 2021 Stats
- 74.4 passer rating allowed when targeted
- 25.6 passer rating allowed in single coverage
- 33.4 receiving yards allowed per game
- 3 INTs, 3 TDs
Even after the veteran CB’s fantastic 2021 outing, he did not make ESPN’s Top 10 CB rankings that were released earlier this week. Slay was listed as an honorable mention but is keeping that in the back of his mind heading into the new season.
Slay is entering his third year with the Eagles and is now paired up with James Bradberry, who signed a 1-year, $10M deal back in May.
Training camp kicks off on July 26th.
