Is Daniel Jones one of the best deep ball throwers in the league ??

So as we know in Jones rookie campaign he was indeed adorned that title and the statistics bore that out..

But what has happened since then ?

Some people dispute this as not a current fact. So opinions won't bear his out, so only the true facts will answer this question..

So lets look at this past season and see what that tells us..

In a recent analytical breakdown by Lauren Gray of Pro Football Focus, Jones ranked seventh overall in the NFL last season when it came to deep passing performance.

28 dropbacks, 91.8
Deep Passing Yards: 359 (30th)
Deep Passing TDs: 2 (T-28th)
Passer Rating: 119.4 (3rd)
Deep Comp%: 43.5% (9th)

Jones did not take many deep shots last season (23 attempts; tied for second-to-last) because Darius Slayton was his only trusted downfield target (91.9). They sought to address that issue in the off-season by trading for Darren Waller, and drafting Jalin Hyatt (92.3). Hyatt led Power Five receivers in deep yards (677) and touchdowns (eight) last season. Waller ranks top five among tight ends in deep receiving grade (92.8) and yards (652) since 2019.

So the fact still remains, Jones is indeed still near the top of the league in deep ball throws..
