Summary

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is unapologetically old school. He believes the key to winning is big bodies on the offensive and defensive line, and having a sturdy, statuesque quarterback with a big arm, lots of college experience, who played in a pro-style scheme. If the Giants chose Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick back in 2004, it probably would've been applauded by most NFL analysts. However, it's 2019, and the way to utilize and scout the position has changed markedly, and for the better. In today's parlance, Jones is a risky proposition as Eli Manning's successor. Yes, he has the size (6-foot-5, 220 pounds) and the pedigree (3-year starter in the ACC for Dave Cutcliffe), but that's where the excitement ends. Jones completed less than 60% of his passes in college and threw just 52 touchdowns against 29 interceptions in 36 games. In the most optimistic light, his college tape was good. It wasn't great. Can a good college player turn into a great NFL player? History hasn't been kind to that kind of bet, but Giants fans will live through this experiment sooner or later. The hope is Eli Manning plays well enough to keep Jones on the sidelines until 2020, at the earliest. (May 2)
