Madden 23's FieldSense system allows for deeper player control, including improved cut animations, gang tackling, and passing control. Ball-carrier moves like stiff arm and juking still feel quite satisfying to pull off, and can change the course of a play instantly. Hurdling is one of the more difficult moves to execute, but it's worth it.
In Madden 23, here's how to overcome obstacles.

When you have to time a hurdle over a defender, you must time it accordingly. Hurdles are much more effective on defenders going for a dive tackle or a low Hit Stick tackle. Hurdles can still be pulled off on high Hit Stick tackles, but with a much lower likelihood of success.
The hurdle does not have a separate rating for every player, unlike most ball-carrier moves. Instead, the Jumping and Juke ratings are most likely to be used to evaluate a player's hurdle move's effectiveness.
When tackled during a hurdle, using the hurdle can be a risky move. You may gain more yards even if tackled, but you are more prone to fumbling and injury if you are tackled during a hurdle. Try to use the hurdle to pick up first downs, avoid defenders diving at you when running down the sideline, and get into the end zone over a defender.
