Giants Shock NFL Draft With No. 6 Pick, Daniel Jones

May JohnsonApr 28, 2019

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 of the New York Giants during the pregame against the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on December 23, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

32 National Football League hopefuls's dreams came true on Thursday night in the first round of the draft. He first took Jones, who threw for 8,201 yards and 52 touchdowns in three years starting for Duke after joining the program as a walk-on.

Ferrell is a really good player, but we're not sure we saw a single mock draft or big board that ranked him ahead of Oliver or Allen throughout this process. He is a quarterback that Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network said had the "highest floor" of any player at his position in this draft. Gettleman and his staff went all-in on who they believe will replace Manning.

The Giants sent their second round pick (No. 37) along with one of two fourth round picks (No. 132) and one of their three fifth rounders (No. 142) to Seattle in exchange for the 30th overall selection. "If you can understand that and live that, you're going to be fine in any of those environments".

According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, the Giants made the pick because they felt like Jones was going to get drafted by the Redskins if they didn't.

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.

Of course, you can play multiple DTs in a game. "The problem was they did a nerve block in the back of my leg and it irritated the nerves in my leg and I couldn't do a toe raise or push-off with it - or do anything with it for like a year and a month".

Asked if the plan for Manning was one more season, Gettleman said, "Absolutely not". "Dexter Lawrence, he might have been the biggest player in the draft, I don't know", said Gettleman.
