Giants’ OC Mike Shula on hand as Daniel Jones impresses at Duke’s Pro Day

Mike Shula goes to Duke as the Giants continue to scout quarterbacks

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Observers were largely impressed by Daniel Jones during his Pro Day on Tuesday.

We don’t yet know whether the New York Giants will select a quarterback to be the heir to Eli Manning of if they will once again punt on the decision. However, we do know that they are at least doing their due diligence in scouting all of their potential options.

The Giants had a heavy presence at the Oklahoma and Ohio State Pro Days, with Chris Mara, Pat Shurmur, and Mike Shula (among many others) attending both.

They also had strong presences at the Missouri and West Virginia pro days

Tuesday, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Shula was at the Duke Pro Day to scout Daniel Jones, the Duke quarterback.

Jones has been repeatedly linked to the Giants, largely through the connection of Duke head coach David Cutcliffe with Eli Manning. The line of thought suggests that the Giants might favor Jones because of the relationship with Manning, and that could soothe any quarterback controversy and ease an eventual transition.

Jones is also a big quarterback at 6-foot-5 12 inches and 221 pounds and solid athleticism, all of which could appeal to Dave Gettleman. We don’t actually know how the Giants feel about Jones, and they probably won’t finalize their opinions on him until after his private workout. However, opinions on the outside are mixed to say the least.

There is still a full month to go before the Giants are on the clock for the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, and there will be more than enough intrigue to go around.
