Daniel Jones, QB, New York Giants
New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones finds himself in a similar situation.
Jones, the sixth pick in 2019, was supposed to be the franchise savior who revived another New York franchise. Instead, he had a new head coach in Joe Judge for his second season and the clock continues to tick on whether that new staff will have a long leash to turn things in the right direction.
Over two seasons, and 27 appearances, Jones didn’t do enough to silence doubters who pointed out he had inflated collegiate numbers while at Duke. He completed 62.2 percent of his passes with 35 touchdowns and 22 interceptions, averaging just 6.6 yards per attempt along the way.
New York has made moves over the last two seasons to help ensure Jones pans out, including heavy investments in the offensive line with names like Andrew Thomas, plus big money spent on free agents Kyle Rudolph and wide receiver Kenny Golladay.
If Jones doesn’t flash an expected developmental upswing during his third season and the Giants don’t get past the six-win mark for the first time since 2016, New York is bound to start over under center just like the Jets did with Darnold.
At this point, is anyone surprised to see Daniel Jones on a list like this?
