This article lists the Madden NFL cover athletes depicted on the Madden NFL video game box cover, along with the year of depiction.

Prior to 1999, every annual installment of the Madden NFL video game series primarily featured John Madden on its cover. In 1999, Electronic Arts selected Garrison Hearst to appear on the PAL version's cover, and has since featured one of the league’s top players on every annual installment.

Madden CurseEdit

While appearing on the cover has become an honor akin to appearing on the Wheaties box, much like the Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx certain players who appeared on the Madden video game box art have experienced a decline in performance, usually due to an injury.
