NFL DRAFT SHOCKER: GIANTS TAKE DUKE QB DANIEL JONES at No.6

by admin_vsao
The New York football Giants had a lot of needs to address in this year’s NFL draft. One was at quarterback as Big Blue searched for the heir to Eli Manning. The Giants think they have their man when the shocked the league and their fans by taking Duke quarterback Daniel Jones wit the sixth overall pick of the draft. Jones was the consensus fourth or fifth highest rated quarterback of a weak draft class and with three first round picks, it is highly probable Big Blue could have drafted Jones with either of their two late round picks.
The Giants are banking that they’ll have a “third” Manning in the fold. Jones coach at Duke was David Cutcliffe who coached both Peyton and Eli Manning during their college careers. While Cutcliffe raves about Jones and his upside, Jones was not dominant in any sense during his three year career. There have been 58 quarterbacks taken if the first round of the NFL draft and Jones’ 6.2 yards-per-attempt was only better than Jake Locker, Patrick Ramsey, and Kyle Boller. Did the Giants take Jones to high ??? Only time will tell.
