Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was taken sixth overall, but ranks 204th among rookies with a 63 Overall.

Lower ratings in categories such as Awareness play a big role in that trend. Quarterbacks have to get on the field and prove themselves, but they benefit from playing the position that can produce the most highlights — and stats — to result in a rise in ratings over the course of a season.
