When the New York Giants drafted Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the sixth-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft fans in the Empire State were beside themselves. The fans were so frustrated with the Giants pick that Jones was booed at a New York Yankees games.

Well, as we head into Week 3 of the preseason schedule, fans are singing a different tune.

The Giants brass told fans that if things go well, Jones would be the next QB of the future. Now fans are asking themselves if the future has arrived.

Jones shining early on

Daniel Jones first appearance in front of the Giants faithful could not have gone any better. In his first game under center, Jones finished 5-for-5 for 67 yards and a touchdown. His second appearance was pretty impressive as well.

In Week 2, Jones finished 11/14 for 161 yards and a touchdown against the Chicago Bears. Sure, it is the preseason, but you can tell that Jones has the stuff to be a starter in this league.

Suddenly, many of the same fans who were calling for the Giants staff to be fired for drafting a QB out of Duke so high up in the first round are standing behind Jones as if he was the future savior of the team. Now Las Vegas experts are jumping on the Jones train.
