I think Jones, Haskins, and Finley will all play regular season games this season though, so we will see how they look when it gets real.
    Jones appears to be the real deal so far and perhaps not a reach at 6 after all. Sort of wonder if Elway traded down at 10 when Jones wasnít available. We will never really know.

    I donít actually think he will see the field this year though. Eli isnít great at his age anymore but heís never really been injury prone. So he will probably survive the season and I donít think the giants will bench him. Theyíd probably actually love to let Jones sit this year and hope Eli retires after the season. Canít over react to preseason but man it seems they may have gotten their future right so far.

    While the starters have played less overall, this is an over-generalization with respect to assessing Daniel Jones. Jones played against starters during the preseason. Heís played very well, especially compared with the pre-draft assessment by many who were highly critical of Jones.

    This thread is for the 2019 rookie quarterbacks.

    I don’t actually think he will see the field this year though. Eli isn’t great at his age anymore but he’s never really been injury prone.

    While I agree that Jones had a fantastic pre-season, making any judgement of him being "the real deal", or no longer a reach is way premature. I would also say regardless of what he turns into, the college tape and interest around the league for Jones at the time makes him a reach forever, he was not worthy of that pick. Now, if he can continue on his upward trend he set during the pre-season, a lot of people, including me, will be very wrong on Jones. But right now, even making any sort of judgement one way or the other is beyond silly.

    No doubt, I didn't think he would look this good ever, but it's way to early, but the signs for him here are great. When it comes to the Giants though, what are they doing ? Jones needs to be the starter based on the pre-season performances alone. When you throw in the high premium draft pick they drafted him with, the running game they are going to have, and the fact Jones is clearly their future, they need to get over the Eli love, he is done.

    So far, I have been most impressed with Daniel Jones. Yes, it's the preseason, but he still completed over 80 percent of passes and, if you watch all of his throws, most are to receivers who have little to no seperation. And he took shots down the field and was accurate on the fade throws. Again, I'm not ordering his gold jacket yet, but he has impressed me the most. Haskins has been good, but hasn't stood out. I still don't know how everything is going to work out in Arizona for Murray. He is dynamic but I haven't seen any glimpse of how the system he is in is going to have sustainable success in the NFL, especially with that putrid offensive line. Aside from them and Lock, haven't really watched too much of the other rookie QB's.

    I agree itís way too early to determine how Jones will play. I wasnít totally sold on him coming into the draft and thought he was average during the Senior Bowl, although thatís a small sample. It was somewhat difficult to separate his skill set from the talent around him at Duke. I think Eli will need to play very well too keep his job. If Jones plays this season it will be more challenging than preseason.

    I watched most of his snaps during preseason and would not agree he played well. He flashed a few times, for example the 55 yard touchdown was a great pass. He struggled with accuracy and missed a lot of targets when receivers were open. Iím not saying he wonít develop into a good quarterback but he has a lot to improve.
