When it comes to game covers, the cover of EA Sports’ Madden NFL is a pretty big deal. The space is usually received for the best of the best as selected by either the design team, or the fans. After Barry Sanders won a fan vote last year to grace the cover of the franchise’s 25th Anniversary edition of the game — Adrian Peterson graced the cover of the next-gen version of Madden 25 — the honor is expected to go back to a current player with Madden NFL 15.
There are a number of excellent candidates that could very well receive the honor this season for the cover. For the purpose of this post, however, GameSided has narrowed it down to 11 players who haven’t been on the cover before. The candidates are in no particular order, and don’t take into consideration that a fan vote could once again be used to determine the winner.
