1. QB Daniel Jones

It's funny, it seems like you could say Daniel Jones is the player with the most to prove for each of the last three seasons. However, it makes sense, as he has yet to string together multiple successful campaigns together. Obviously, the personnel around him has been far from ideal, but after his best season yet, Jones needs to prove he can actually be the team's franchise QB.

We have all the faith in the world for Jones, especially after all of the additions the Giants and Schoen made this offseason. However, he must show us that he's capable of consistently being a good QB. Jones will always receive criticism for the simple fact that he plays in New York, but real Giants fans know how talented he is.

In 16 games last season, Jones completed 67.2 percent of his passes for 3,205 yards, 15 touchdowns, and five interceptions. In addition to this, Jones ran the ball 120 times for 708 yards and seven touchdowns. Following this season, Jones was rewarded with an absolutely massive four-year, $160 million contract extension.

If Jones wants to prove his haters wrong, he must show that he can string together multiple successful seasons while leading the team at QB. We're confident in his abilities, but like we said, he must prove it before we jump to massive conclusions.
