Jets QB Sam Darnold was the third overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft but is the fourth best rookie quarterback according to EA Sports' Madden 19.
Darnold's rating is a 75, good enough to make the top five of rookie quarterbacks. He's ahead of Bills QB Josh Allen (74), but is trailing Cardinals' QB Josh Rosen (78), Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (79) and Browns QB Baker Mayfield (81).
Mayfield was the No. 1 overall pick of this year's draft while Allen was No. 7, Rosen was No. 10 and Jackson No. 32.
The 21-year-old Darnold threw 57 touchdowns and 22 interceptions in his last two seasons with USC. He enters training camp behind Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater on the depth chart but will have every chance to climb.
Jets fans will look to make the most of that 75 overall rating on the virtual landscape, while most importantly hoping that Darnold outplays those low expectations.
