Like anything else on the internet, Madden NFL 21 rankings have been leaked and 49ers fans should be happy. Well, at least for the most part.
The 49ers are one of only 11 teams with three or more players with ratings of at least 90 overall, according to Madden-School.com. They also are the only NFC West team to have that honor.
Here are the 49ers' top 10 players in this year's version of Madden. You'll notice there's one big name missing.
George Kittle: 98
Trent Williams: 92
Richard Sherman: 92
Nick Bosa: 89
Fred Warner: 87
Arik Armstead: 86
Kyle Juszczyk: 86
Dee Ford: 85
Mike McGlinchey: 85
Raheem Mostert: 84
That's right, Jimmy Garoppolo is not among the 49ers' top 10 players in the game. It already was revealed Garoppolo isn't among the top 10 quarterbacks in Madden, and now the same goes for the 49ers as a whole. Even fullback Kyle Juszczyk and running back Raheem Mostert are ahead of Jimmy G.

It appears Garoppolo is on the outside looking in with an 83 overall ranking.
To no surprise, Kittle is the 49ers' highest-ranked player but fans still might not be happy with his 98. How didn't he receive a 99 ranking? Only Patrick Mahomes, Christian McCaffrey, Aaron Donald and Stephon Gilmore joined this club this year.
All Nick Bosa needed was one season to nearly receive a 90 ranking. He's right on the cusp at 89 overall, and already is seen as the NFC champion's fourth-best player. Bosa made his mark as the Defensive Rookie of the Year and is primed for stardom.
It also should be noted the 49ers replaced Joe Staley with a left tackle who didn't play a single snap last year and still is ranked 92 overall. Garoppolo isn't even seen as a top 10 player on his own team, but he'd much rather have a star like Trent Williams protecting his blind side than a high video game ranking.
In the grand scheme of everything, Madden rankings mean absolutely nothing. Zip, zilch. But this is just another example of the 49ers talented roster looking to make another Super Bowl run.
