FIFA 22 will be released in less than a month, with two more weeks to go. Amidst the hype, EA has released player ratings for the Top 22 players. However, there is only one defender on the list.
This article presents some of the best defenders of this season by considering their OVRs in FIFA 22. Some of these ratings are from official sources, while others cannot be validated yet.

1) Virgil van Dijk - 89
With an OVR of 89, Virgil van Dijk is the only defender who made it to the Top 22. His overall rating has come down by 1 point, presumable due to his injury last season. Even then, he is currently the best defender in the world, according to FIFA 22.
