With the Giants controlling the sixth and 17th overall picks in the NFL draft, there's no doubt the organization is at least considering selecting a quarterback at either spot.
One such option is former Duke QB Daniel Jones, who would make more sense at No. 17 if the Giants opt to address another need at No. 6. Two NFL analysts -- ESPN's Dan Orlovsky and NBC's Chris Simms -- divulged their respective opinions on Jones last week to Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com.
Here are some interesting quotes from the piece that provide possible insight into how teams are evaluating him with less than a month before the draft:
Simms on where he should be drafted: "I don't think Daniel Jones is in that (Dwayne Haskins, Kyler Murray, Drew Lock) class nor do I think Daniel Jones, through my evaluation, is a first-round talent."
Orlovsky on Jones' potential: "There's just not a 'wow' part to his game. That's not a bad thing. There's a consistency to his game that's a good thing."
Simms on his pocket presence: "It's not what he's doing when it's served up on a silver platter but when nothing is there: Does he have the physical ability to make a big throw or move in the pocket?"
Simms cautioned to beware of misleading stats: "I wrote at one point in my notes, 'I've watched two games in a row now and he's thrown for 700 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions and I haven't seen a good throw yet. We're getting enamored with the stats."
Orlovsky on Jones' personality: "Very kind, very nice. Those aren't bad things. I don't know if he is equipped to control an organization, which is what you need to do as a quarterback. ... His personality is nothing like Baker Mayfield, Russell Wilson, Peyton Manning, Matt Ryan. It could be like Eli Manning. I get concerned with, can he handle being CEO of a billion-dollar company?"
While neither Orlovvsky or Simms are high on Jones, the signal-caller does have one important family in his corner: The Mannings. Peyton Manning played for David Cutcliffe, Duke's head coach, at Tennessee.
With Eli Manning under center for this season and perhaps even 2020, it's setting up for the connection to possibly take on another form in East Rutherford in the near future.
