    Look no further = Daniel Jones!!

    Here he is, the next Broncos great QB

    https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...C&&FORM=VRDGAR

    Elway can draft this guy and live in infamy for the rest of his life. I'll be honest, I haven't watched a ton of him but I see every attribute that I need to. He has the size, the arm strength, the mobility, and most importantly the mind. He's smart and another guy that loves football....loves to study.

    I agree. He will be really good with the right coaching, which we currently do not have but hopefully will come next year.

    All the physical tools are good. It is so tough to know if he has the mindset to succeed. Lynch was the classic example of having all the physical tools but not willing or able to digest a playbook, to know it like the back of your hand.

    We could get some good intel from Manning on this. Manning of course worked extensively with coach Cutcliffe in offseasons as a pro, having had him as O-Coordinator in college, and he would be a great source on whether or not Jones can handle an NFL offense.

    What if they brought in both Jones and Cutcliffe?

    People need to slow their roll on Jones a bit in my opinion. He has a couple nice highlight videos out there but have people taken the time to dig deeper ? I have some huge questions about Jones and although I like him, I am not sure if I see a top 5 pick, or him being better than Finley.

    Personally I hate the offense he plays in, and if Cutcliffe was too be a package deal with Jones, it would be a disaster in the NFL. The elongated read option they play creates so much extra pressure on Jones, and if they try that nonsense in the NFL behind our offensive line, Jones will be on the bench quickly.

    I am trying to figure out also if Jones processes what he sees at even an above average college level, it doesn't look like it a lot of the times. Not only does his offense create extra pressure on him, he holds the ball so long in the pocket at times you have to shake your head.

    In saying that though, the way Jones uses his footwork to move around the pocket, and the way he is so willing to stand in the face of pressure and deliver the ball down field, I can see why people are getting excited. As I said, I do like him, but his tape reminds me a lot of Brock Osweilers at ASU. I'll be interested to see how Jones looks the rest of the way, but right now people are overreacting in my opinion, and he hasn't proven enough to overtake Finley or Herbert as the potential top quarterback in the draft, if he even comes out that is.

    I think there is plenty to get excited about and imo, the hype will only continue to grow. He is a 3 year starter and has progressed every year he's played. He started out as a young QB that only wanted to run and has progressed into a more pocket passing through the tutelage of Cutcliffe. It never hurts having the same guy that tought Peyton Manning how to be a better QB.

    No doubt, I agree he has some admirable traits and some things to get excited about, but that doesn't mean he also doesn't have a lot of big question marks surrounding him as well. Can you honestly say you think that Jones is quick to read, dissect, and react to the defense from what you have seen ? I feel like if you say yes you are lying to yourself, Jones really struggles in this area. We have seen plenty of physically gifted guys come through here, but the mental aspect makes or breaks a quarterback, and Jones doesn't appear to even be at an advanced college level for breaking down a defense.

    To be honest, Jones honestly is purely a sight thrower, he makes no anticipation reads or throws, not consistently anyway. If a throw isn't open and he can't see it then react to it, he is either holding the ball and taking a sack, or making a bad throw under pressure. You can get away with this at the college level, the windows are much larger and the room for error on these decisions is much larger too, but the fact this is happening at now at Duke, it doesn't project well to the NFL.

    Also, if we are stacking Jones's tape up against last years top quarterbacks, he comes in behind Mayfield, Rosen, Darnold, and Allen at the least. Did you watch Jones against Georgia State ? The tape through 3 quarters in that game did not show a guy who looked ready to lead an NFL offense, or ready to be anything more than a backup quarterback. And I am not trying to argue, I am genuinely curious, could you point me in the direction of a game where Jones warrants any sort of projection above the 3-4th round at best ? The Northwestern tape he posted big numbers, but his guys were running wide open, and he demonstrated all of his worst traits throughout that game consistency. I would also say Mason Rudolph's tape last year looks better than what Jones has put up this season, along with Kyle Lauletta.

    Really, the thought of Daniel Jones being take in the top 5 is worse than the thought of Josh Allen in the top 5. Josh Allen at least had those flash plays more often where he showed what he potentially could be, Jones has even less than Allen did. I haven't looked at every quarterback yet potentially coming out this year, but of the 5 guys I have really looked into, Jones is at the bottom behind Herbert, Finley, Lock, and Stanley. This hype he has right now really doesn't appear to be warranted at all, and the only reason it exists here is because of the desperate situation we are in at quarterback, and the Cutcliffe connection and his past with Manning. Outside of this I see a rather unathletic guy, with a solid arm, who is very inconsistent and struggles in anticipating and reading a defense, he is not top 5 material at all, the tape doesn't back up the narrative at all.

    You are wrong.

    It is going to get annoying hearing how often people will say things like this. How often people will say things that they have no idea what they're talking about, simply repeating something they heard from someone without actually looking into it before we inevitably take one of them in the first round.

    Get ready

    Okay im not really quite sure what you are watching when you watch jones. You said he wasnt athletic...he just ran for 180 some odd yards in a game. He was a dual threat qb coming out of high school.

    It also stated that he cant make progressions and read defenses which i have have to somewhat disagree with.

    https://www.lockedonjaguars.com/jagu...-daniel-jones/

    Yes its for a jags site but he gives a decent breakdown of jones doing things that some have said he cant do. Timing throws, presnap reads and such with video of what hes describing

    Yes there is the cutcliffe connection which means that jones has attending mannings passing camp the past 2 years

    https://www.google.com/url?q=https:/...UsgfkmqacE2nSP

    So hes got the desire and dedication when you factor in that he played 2 weeks after having clavicle surgery.

    The more i hear about him, the more i like him

    Eta: just for good measure heres his highlights vs unc:

    On the other hand, your Jaguars link said he only had a decent arm and may only be suited for a WCO. It also said, at best, he's basically a top 15 pick.
