No matter which position a team is chasing in the NFL Draft, if you're going to take a player with the No. 6 overall pick, you'd better get your money's worth using it.

Unfortunately for the New York Giants and their new rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, the team behind EA Sports' "Madden 20" player ratings couldn't have made their stance of this first-round pick any more clear.

Jones received a 63 Madden player rating, which is actually worse than the 2019 NFL Draft's Mr. Irrelevant, Caleb Wilson, who sits at 66.

While it's not uncommon to see highly talented rookies opening with less-than-stellar Madden player ratings, there's certainly something to be said about the last pick in the 2019 NFL Draft receiving a higher mark than the No. 6 overall pick.

That's right, the final, No. 254 overall pick in this year's draft has a three-point advantage in the opening ratings over the second QB taken off the board. This is in no way a slight to Wilson either, as the former UCLA Bruin tight end was named to both Second-team All-American and First-team All-Pac-12 in his final collegiate season.

According to these Madden ratings, the Giants either drafted the biggest bust of the decade, or the Arizona Cardinals apparently snagged the deal of the century.
