3. QB Daniel Jones
It’s beginning to get repetitive now, but Daniel Jones has to show something at training camp that inspires confidence in his ability to be a franchise quarterback. There have been plays made so far this camp that make you go wow, but also too many of the throws that look like the Jones that we’ve become accustomed to. It’s early on in camp, so mistakes are expected.
There is optimism about this year’s offense, as Wan’Dale Robinson and Toney already seem to be the most exciting offensive players so far in camp. There is also optimism that Kenny Golladay can have a bounce-back year in a system that utilizes him to his strengths. If Jones doesn’t look great heading into the first preseason game, then it is not wild to suggest that the experienced Tyrod Taylor could be a better option.
There is also Jimmy Garoppolo, who is available via trade, but seems likely to get cut considering San Francisco are moving on with Trey lance as the starter. If Jones doesn’t show improvements this training camp, then Taylor could pressure for that starting spot, or we could see more people calling for Jimmy G.
In the previous three seasons Jones has been with the Giants, he has been far better than the backup QB, but this year the gap between Jones and Taylor is not far apart and could lead to a camp battle for the starting job. This will be something to watch, but if Jones can play better, he’ll leave the coaches no choice but to let him run the offense.
