Expect to see EA announce the Madden 19 cover athlete in May, 2018 along with a few other details about the game. The following is the Most Likely Madden 19 Cover Athlete. Is your favorite athlete on the following list? Don't forget that we offer cheap and safe NFL 19 coins.
Madden 19 Cover
10. Alvin Kamara (New Orleans Saints)
The former University Of Tennessee running back proved an instant hit after being drafted in the third round by New Orleans, snagging Rookie Of The Year honours following 1300 all-purpose yards and 13 touchdowns in his first saintly season. A Madden cover would rubber-stamp household-name status across the globe, and provide Louisiana's first since Drew Brees-helmed Madden 11.
9. Matthew Stafford (Detroit Lions)
Barry Sanders started the Motown trend with Madden 2000, Calvin Johnson nabbed a follow-up for Madden 13, and Sanders scored the honour for a second time on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Madden 25. All of which keeps Detroit in the mix annually, with QB Stafford the most likely recipient.
8. Tom Brady (New England Patriots)
Madden 19 Cover
While Detroit leads the league in Madden covers, New England is one away from tying the record having claimed the most recent two. With Madden 17 cover star Rob Gronkowski reportedly considering his future in the sport, last year's box boy Tom Brady again represents the Pats' best chance of fronting Madden 19. 
7. Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh Steelers)
It's now four years since EA held a public vote for the Madden cover - and the last time it did, for Madden 16, Brown was one of only two wide receivers on the shortlist. Rival Odell Beckham Jr got the gig that year, and Pittsburgh's number 84 remains cover-less despite five consecutive 100-catch seasons. He's marketable and popular across the league, and seems a lock to front the game if and when Pittsburgh adds a seventh Super Bowl triumph.
6. Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers)
For all its attempts to mimic reality, Madden remains first and foremost a game about explosive quarterback play. While Cam Newton is superior to Rodgers on the ground, his overall play still doesn't quite match up to the Green Bay signal caller, who - perhaps surprisingly - remains on zero Madden covers despite years of gunslinging excellence. Indeed, Rodgers would be the first Packer featured since predecessor Brett Favre's fronting of Madden NFL 09.
5. John Madden (Hall Of Fame)
Boasting more Madden covers than anyone is John boy himself. While that's of little surprise given that his name's been on the box for three decades, it's 18 years since he last appeared on the cover. 
4. Nick Foles (Philadelphia Eagles)
From the roster bubble to Super Bowl MVP: Foles' fairytale story is a glorious one, and gives him a very credible shot at this year's Madden cover. The key issue counting against him is that he's likely to start the season on the bench, with Philadelphia committed to starting franchise QB Carson Wentz on his return from long-term injury - and EA is unlikely to risk putting a guy on the box who may not play a single snap across the 2018 campaign.
3. JJ Watt (Houston Texans)
Not only is Watt the sport's best lineman, he also earned Sports Illustrated Sportsperson Of The Year and Walter Payton NFL Man Of The Year awards in 2017 for humanitarian efforts off the field. 
2. Todd Gurley (St Louis Rams)
Georgia Bulldogs' one-time rushing star couldn't quite bulldoze the Rams to play-off glory, but he won countless fantasy leagues in 2017 thanks to more than 2,000 all-purpose yards - 1,300 of them on the ground - and a ridiculous 19 touchdowns. St Louis will once more pin their Super Bowl hopes to Gurley's thunderous legs and Jared Goff's surgical right arm for the coming campaign, in which (barring injury) he should challenge for a second consecutive Offensive Player Of The Year gong.
1. Jay Ajayi (Philadelphia Eagles)
We're predicting a Madden 19 cover for Ajayi for multiple reasons. Unlike Foles, he's a guaranteed starter for the reigning Super Bowl Champions, and at running back, a position with an illustrious history of Madden cover stars. 
The London-born Arsenal fan has also done ambassadorial work for EA in the past, being interviewed for GR ahead of Madden 17, and his coronation as the first British Madden cover athlete would unquestionably make for a positive news headline, at a time when the NFL is bigger than it's ever been in the UK. And what games publisher doesn't like a positive news headline?
