The launch ratings for every NFL player included in Madden 20 are here.

After some teases, EA Sports released the full rosters for every team Monday ahead of the Aug. 2 release date.

The full rosters are available at EA Sports' website along with some top players discussing where they stack up:

According to the ratings czars, just four players were worthy of the 99 OVR distinction for Madden 20: Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald, Chicago Bears linebacker Khalil Mack and Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner.

Wideouts Julio Jones and Antonio Brown, along with linebacker Luke Kuechly, barely missed out on the 99 distinction with OVRs of 98.

Brown is the top-rated player to switch teams this offseason, as he was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Oakland Raiders after a controversial exit. Mr. Big Chest is joined by Cleveland Browns wideout Odell Beckham Jr. (96 OVR) and Baltimore Ravens safety Earl Thomas (95 OVR) as the only players rated 95 or higher to switch teams this offseason.

Le'Veon Bell (92 OVR) and Kareem Hunt (90 OVR) are also among the notables to switch teams.

Cover athlete Patrick Mahomes comes in as the sport's top-rated quarterback at 97 OVR, closely followed by Tom Brady (94 OVR). Those are the only two players at the position at 95 or better, and perhaps the most surprising rating at quarterback is Aaron Rodgers (90 OVR). Rodgers comes in behind Philip Rivers (94 OVR), Drew Brees (92 OVR), Andrew Luck (92 OVR) and Russell Wilson (91 OVR) in one of the most surprising decisions by EA.
