1. Mike White, QB, NY Jets (56 overall)

No Jets player was disrespected more by Madden this year than Mike White. In fact, you could quite easily make the argument that White was the biggest snub of any player in the NFL.

White's 56 overall rating not only makes him the worst-rated player on the entire Jets roster (minus Thomas Hennessy), but it also makes him one of the worst quarterbacks on any roster in the game.

Among those with higher ratings than White includes Sam Ehlinger, Skylar Thompson, Tim Boyle, Jarrett Stidham, C.J. Beathard, John Wolford, Cooper Rush, Brett Rypien, Ian Book, Feleipe Franks, Chris Oladokun, Jake Luton, Brock Purdy, and Josh Dobbs.

Thompson, Purdy, and Oladokun are seventh-round picks who haven't thrown a pass yet. Franks is a former undrafted free agent who has thrown one career pass — an interception. The rest are a mixture of practice squad candidates and camp bodies.

White is a backup quarterback and he should be rated as such, but you'd think that a guy who threw for over 400 yards and literally has his name in the Hall of Fame would be rated higher than the guys on that list.

Madden, of course, disagrees. Why? Because Madden. That's why.
