Daniel Jones Is A New York Giant

NFL draft: Giants get Eli Manning successor, shockingly take Duke QB Daniel Jones with sixth pick

Most Giants fans were not very receptive of the pick.

Jones probably will spend his first season being an understudy for Manning, who is now 38 and in the final year of his $84 million contract.

General manager Dave Gettleman has been actively trying to rebuild a franchise that has won a total of eight games in the past two seasons. Most experts believed if NY picked a quarterback it wouldn't be Jones but Haskins.

The Raiders, who own the No. 4 pick, have reportedly moved quarterback Dwayne Haskins up on their draft board hours before the draft begins, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapaport. A lot of people figured Jones could get into the first round, because quarterbacks always go higher than maybe they should, but No. 6 seemed high.

"Who knows? I may go out there in my vehicle and get hit", said Gettleman about the risk.

Last year, the SEC had 27 players drafted through three rounds and finished with 53, and Alabama led the nation with 12.

The Giants had the chance to draft this player, or even Haskins, and they passed on both of them in order to take a player that was only mocked to the team by most as the possible number 17 overall pick.

Stick around though: the Giants have another first round pick (No. 17) for Gettleman to screw up.

Arizona took Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick like they were expected to and the 49ers snagged Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa with the second.

Reports have also indicated Jones' relationship with former Manning (Peyton and Eli) quarterback coach and Duke head coach David Cutcliffe was a primary driving force NY drafting of the signal caller. The end result of drafting Baker could lead the Giants to trade veteran Janoris Jenkins, who they nearly dealt a year ago.

"He's a quality run player and he's more than just a two-down run player", Gettleman said. "Dexter Lawrence, he might have been the biggest player in the draft, I don't know", said Gettleman.
