Good morning, New York Giants fans!
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said Monday that “the prospects are pretty good’ MetLife Stadium will be filled with fans for Giants and Jets games this fall.
The Giants didn’t make the Eli Apple mistake again when their apparent primary target was taken before they picked at No. 11.
Jones' fellow 2019 first-round picks, Haskins and Kyler Murray, have already gone down polar opposite paths. The former is now a backup with the Pittsburgh Steelers, while the latter has an Offensive Rookie of the Year honor and a Pro Bowl nod on his resume.
But Jones is a wild card. The 23-year-old Duke product regressed slightly on paper as a sophomore in 2020, but injuries and a lack of support from a depleted offense have to be factored in.
Now, with the Giants investing heavily in the offense, and with Jones seemingly on track to be reunited with key offensive players Nate Solder (a 2020 COVID-19 opt-out) and Saquon Barkley (who spent most of the season on injured reserve with a torn ACL), his rope might not extend far beyond 2021.
Even after all the work the Giants did on their offense, this ranking doesn’t give them much credit.
