After being stuck at 98 on my running back for awhile, I decided to go for this with my Prototype MLB. I got in in the beginning of 2020.

Started on the Bears as an 80 Overall, 6'4 247lbs, Prototype MLB. I played enough games each year to get 175 tackles which gives you a nice milestone each year, as well as the mvp, superbowls, etc from other guides.

I can confirm that these grades here make your 99 Rating Scheme -
Physical Grade - 100 - Str, Agi, Spd, Acc, Hit power
Intangible Grade - 99 Tackle, awareness, block shedding, pursuit
Durability Grade - 100 Stamina
Size Grade - 99 Start your LB at 6'4, 247 lbs
Production Grade - 97 Get good stats every season, takes awhile to build up.

Your rating is all based on the scheme of the team you are on. Check under strategy > schemes to see which type your team is. I ended up getting a boost from 98 to 99 by moving from 3-4 tackler team to a run stopper team in my last season. These schemes will switch when a coach has retired so keep a heads up on that.

Please check out my video below for all stats

Other possible way to do it... Although I was stuck at 98 Overall for over a season and decided to try a different way.

I simmed most of my 1st season while going for the Emmitt Smith Trophy untill bwallstreet13357 gave me some tips that helped in the Legacy Score Thread , which also helped with earning tons of XP & that's what it'll take to get this trophy. Be sure to do as many practices as possible. If you play every single practice avalible you can earn the max of 24,000 XP each season. Over the corse of your career thats a lot of XP. Also I was averaging 2,500-4,000 XP per game. But in order to do that you'll have to play each & every game & not sim at all. You'll also want to break every individual/season/career records & goals to gain massive amounts of XP.

Also the game will grade you on other abilities that you can't purchase. But some upgraded abilities will influence the speed at which they increase. You'll have to play around with the upgrades to see which ones. Just reload your save if you don't like the outcome , but the increase will be at a slow rate. They are also based on your perfomance in the game (this is my opinion). It grades you on...

Physical Grade
Intangible Grade
Durability Grade
Size Grade
Production Grade

Be sure to turn off the Firing Of The Coach option. If your coach loses his job then your Overall Rating will DECREASE when a new coach is hired. Also be sure to keep a winning record & always win the Super Bowl. After going on a long win streak & you happen to lose the Super Bowl your coach will want to retire in the Off Season. Make a save before each Super Bowl & then sim the Off Season. If your coach retires then reload your last save & play the Super Bowl all over again & sim the Off Season again until you get the outcome you want. Thus keeping your Overall Rating increased.
