Widely tipped to be chosen first by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the upcoming NFL Draft, Lawrence would also be the first ever rookie to Mut 22 coins appear on the Madden cover -- a bold announcement from EA to cement the new PS5 and Xbox Series X era.

Sadly, the campaign ended at a Super Bowl loss to Tampa Bay, and there is likely to be similar disappointment in the Madden 22 box section, with Mahomes' Madden 20 cover likely too recent for him to be selected again.

Entering his eighth NFL season, few defensive players are as recognisable as Pittsburgh alumnus Donald -- or effective. The Rams' lynchpin racked up 13.5 sacks last time out, sufficient to score his third NFL Defensive Player Of The Year award. If he can replicate the Madden 22 box then he would be the first D-man to do so because Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks managed it on Madden 15.

If Mahomes is not considered a Chiefs cover competition due to his look two editions before, team-mate Kelce is a more-than-worthy replacement. Even at 31 lots of experts have tagged him the best tight-end at NFL history, and 2020 saw him control in the place once again, to buy Madden 22 coins the tune of 105 catches, 1416 yards, and 11 touchdowns. He's unquestionably magic Mahomes' go-to guy.
