Giants rumors: New York connected to drafting Daniel Jones instead of trading for Josh Rosen
There has been an influx of speculation regarding what exactly the New York Giants are going to do in this year’s draft and a lot of the speculation surrounding them involves Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen. While the Cardinals have expressed in the past Rosen is their quarterback, it’s increasingly clear Heisman winning quarterback Kyler Murray could very well be their pick this year.
The Giants are either projected to take Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins or pull off a trade for Rosen, however, they are now being connected to Duke quarterback Daniel Jones. The Giants could very well pass on a quarterback with their sixth overall pick and take a player like Jones in the second round.
‘The New York Giants? Despite reports of serious interest, several league sources connected them with drafting Duke’s Daniel Jones rather than trading for Rosen.”
Daniel Jones’ numbers in college do not jump off the page at all, but scouts love his mechanics and his vision. Jones stands at 6’5″, 221 pounds so his presence behind the line could be a difference maker and his pocket presence is highly touted as well. The Giants would likely please a lot of fans by drafting Haskins, but Jones is an extremely talented player as well.
While Jones is expected to be a solid talent, a player like Haskins or Rosen could be the better way to go in regards to planning for the future after Eli Manning retires. Although Manning will likely be the team’s quarterback this upcoming season, it’ll also likely his last. The Giants need to address the position and no matter who they decide to pursue, they ought to plan on the player being their solution for the foreseeable future.
