Duke quarterback Daniel Jones has been drafted by the New York Giantswith the No. 6 overallpick in thefirst round of the 2019 NFL draft. The Giants passed on Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins.

Jones was a three-year starter for the Blue Devils after redshirting upon arriving with the program. During his redshirt-junior campaign, Jones threw for 2,674 yards, 22 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Jones is listed at 6'5" and 220 pounds. Sports Illustrated writers projected the Duke signal-caller to be selected as high as 10th by the Broncos and as low as 32nd by the Patriots in their latest round of mock drafts.

Former Chiefs head coach Todd Haley compared Jones to Bills QB Josh Allen and to SI's MMQB that Jones "had the best tape of the group in my opinion."

Over his three-year career, Jones completed 59.9% of his passes for 8,201 yards, 52 touchdowns and 29 interceptions across 36 career games.
