072914-WakeDefensive end Cameron Wake is continuing to rack up offseason accolades, with the latest coming in the world of virtual football.

After being ranked by NFL.com as the second best edge rusher in the game and tops in the AFC in that category, Wake has been listed as the third-best overall defensive end in the upcoming release of the Madden video game franchise.

Here’s what EA Sports had to say about Wake’s rating, a 96 overall:

Wake still terrorizes NFL quarterbacks with his 97 Finesse Moves and 95 Acceleration on a weekly basis. Take advantage of his speed rush with the new “Jump Snap” mechanics.

Wake was ranked ahead of the following players at the defensive end position:  Calais Campbell (96 OVR), Cameron Jordan (93 OVR) and Muhammad Wilkerson (93 OVR), behind only J.J. Watt (99 OVR) and Robert Quinn (97 OVR).
