We are going to be breaking down the most overpowered position on defense. This position should be considered often during the draft.
They are so good that they could fight a bear for a fish and probably win.
During a draft, you can walk out with 3 to 5 of them and each one of them could start potentially at a different position for your team. We aren’t being cute either, this position is that good.
This is also a position that can be traded for fairly easily depending on their overall, age and development. This position is as deadly as the Most OP Position on Offense in Madden 22, which we wrote about and did a video on.

What is the Most OP Position on Defense in Madden 22?
The most overpowered position on defense in Madden 22 is the safety position with a heavier emphasis on the strong safety position (SS). This position can produce great talent in some of the hardest positions to average a high overall in.
They eat, sleep, and crap greatness. The free safety position can also be of great use as well but the strong safety is going to carry a slightly higher weight so be on the lookout for both.
What Makes the Safety Position so Great in Madden 22?
The first and main reason is their grading system. Madden grades safeties at a higher level which mean that their overalls carry over when moved to other positions.
They have a decent speed rating and a high average of other ratings compared to other positions. They can also play the position that is a pain to get right which is the middle linebacker position (MLB).
Another thing that makes them great is that there tends to be a lot of them available in the draft because you can watch out for both safety positions FS and SS. This doubles your ability to snag multiple talented players to put them in much-needed areas on your team.
They also tend to run decent overalls in auto-generated draft classes which as we all know Maddens auto-generated draft classes like to crap at us and see if it sticks.
We will give you an example to better explain what we are talking about here.
Isaiah Simmons came into the league as a safety but now has moved on to the MLB position. This is not a fluke either. This has happened throughout the history of football.
Derwin James is a 92 overall SS, when he has is moved to the MLB position his overall only drops by 1 making him a 91 overall MLB.
When he is moved to cornerback (CB) his overall drops to a 90 which is only a 2 point drop. He would be one of the best CBs in the league.
They are an easy position to trade for as well. Karmen Curl can be traded for by just using QB Kyle Trask and you can even ask for a late-round pick back.
This position is so overpowered in Madden 22 that it would be a shame if you do not take advantage of what Madden is providing with this position.
DodderyCribb, A.K.A. Dodds, or Doddery, has been dominating the gaming industry for over two decades. He has defied the odds in Madden by trading for “impossible” players and mastering Madden contracts to name a few. Dodds has made signature content, such as the SAR, SAT, Contract Reset Method, and much more. You can also find him playing and writing content for mobile games.
