While some believe the Giants reached by taking Duke QB Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick in the NFL Draft, there is reportedly at least one team that was not sure he was good enough to be a quarterback.
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, there was one team that wanted to work out Jones as a tight end at the combine because they did not think he was good enough to be an NFL starting quarterback.
While it is not uncommon for coaches to suggest moving players to a different position, Jones was never really thought of in this matter publicly before the draft despite some skepticism he was worthy of a first-round pick.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson faced similar scrutiny last year when teams wanted to work him out as a wide receiver. Jackson was drafted with the 32nd overall pick and helped guide the Ravens into the playoffs.
