Under center, Daniel Jones is the heir apparent to Eli Manning, who is already leading by example toward the young quarterback.
Addressing reporters Tuesday, Jones said Manning's daily routine and practice habits have already left an impression on him more than anything else so far.
"To me, a lot of it is in his routine and in his daily preparation and how he prepares for practice," Jones said. "How he reviews practice and learns from practice. I think that routine and just learning from that, being able to watch him every day, for me, has been the most helpful."
Jones also said he picks up plenty from Manning in terms of attacking defenses.
"I think you can learn a lot from him on the field, obviously, just from a scheme standpoint," he said. "Obviously, he's done it for a long time. He knows that stuff."
Manning's consistency with his routine stands out the most, Jones said.
"He does the same thing," he said. "He'll go through all his assignments, draw it all out. After practice, just reviewing it."
Along the way, the relationship between Manning and Jones has been budding. Although they will ultimately be competing for reps, it's only been well-natured competition during OTAs.
"I think it's been great," Jones said. "I think we got a great room and a great group of guys in there. He's been very helpful for me. I've certainly learned a lot. We've got a great relationship throughout the room, with [Alex Tanney] and [Kyle Lauletta] as well. I think we've got a great room and a lot of guys helping each other.
Jones' work ethic has been praised by some teammates despite being drafted a month ago.
"He's been a pro already," Lauletta said. "He comes to work each day trying to learn, just like the rest of us."
Still, Jones is well aware he has a long ways to go in every aspect of his game -- including preparation.
"It's been good to get with the team and learn as much as I can," he said. "It's been a good start.
"I'm still pretty early in the process, still learning a whole lot every day. I don't know when that happens, but yeah, there's still a lot to learn, a lot to work on, a lot to improve on."
