The Ravens are just 10 days away from the start of training camp, and EA Sports Madden 2020 released the player ratings for all 32 teams. Conversation has flooded social media and we're jumping right into it.

Here's a look at the top-rated Ravens suiting up for the 2019 season. 

Earl Thomas: 95 Overall 

The Ravens' big-ticket free-agent signing is the highest-rated player on the team and the highest-rated safety in Madden. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise, considering Thomas has been one of the NFL's best safeties since coming into the league in 2010. Baltimore will hope Thomas can rekindle his previous form after playing just four games last season, as he's expected to quarterback the league's top secondary this season. 

Michael Pierce: 92 Overall 

It's not a surprise that the two highest-rated Ravens' are on the defensive side of the ball. Pierce helped lead the NFL's top-ranked overall defense last season, totaling 32 tackles in 14 games. The former undrafted defensive tackle earned high praise from the EA Sports team, and Pro Football Focus, who ranked Pierce the fifth-best defensive lineman in the NFL last season. 

Pierce had garnered exceptional attention but made headlines for all the wrong reasons when he showed up to mandatory minicamp out of shape and was sent off the field by Head Coach John Harbaugh. He's considered one of the key defensive pieces this season and Pierce will work to get back into shape for training camp. 

Marshal Yanda: 91 Overall 

Marshal Yanda has consistently been one of the best guards in the game and comes in as the Ravens' highest-rated offensive player. At 34-years-old, Yanda has shown the versatility to play just about every position on the offensive line and has been the glue that's held the group together for the better part of 12 seasons. He'll be tasked with that challenge again as the Ravens are expected to feature a new-look offense under second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson 

Justin Tucker: 87 Overall

I'll make the argument that this is one of the biggest rating snubs on the team. Tucker is the highest-rated kicker in Madden, but 87 overall doesn't seem to do him justice. He's currently the most accurate kicker in NFL history and has missed just one extra point in his professional career. 

Where's the love for the kickers? Come on Madden, you're better than this. 

Mark Ingram II: 86 Overall

It's interesting to note that two of the Ravens' free-agent signings this offseason are among the highest-rated players on the team. That speaks to the quality of talent first-year General Manager Eric DeCosta was able to sign, and many consider Mark Ingram to be a bargain deal at three-years, $15 million. 

Ingram is expected to be the No. 1 back in Greg Roman's offense this season and will look to become the first running back to reach 1,000 yards in the regular season since Justin Forsett in 2014. He's 29-years-old, but Ingram still has tread on the tires after splitting carries in New Orleans with Alvin Kamara the last two seasons.
