I have no problem with moving up for Baker

I'm watching Daniel Jones highlights on YouTube now and while I'm still not sold that he was worth taking at 6, he does have decent athleticism and mobility. The stats would suggest he's not particularly accurate, though, which is a concern, because accuracy is one of those things that doesn't *really* improve much when you go to the NFL. He also doesn't appear to have a particularly strong arm either.

All in all, I'm not really sold. Gettleman talked about wanting a pocket passer...Haskins was that guy.

i heard Jones had his receivers drop alot of balls which could be a big part of that...wasnt his main weakness not having a strong arm?

If Dan Jones has a true positive its def his ability to maneuver in the pocket.

Can't look at stats. Jones WR's were legitimately horrible, they dropped f***ing everything that he throw at them. His completion % has nothing to do with accuracy.

I kinda feel bad for the guy honestly. He's going to be almost universally despised here before he even plays a game. 40 years after Phil Simms got crucified right after he was drafted, we just did it again.

I think it was a s*** pick but I thought Barkley was a s*** pick too (not because he's bad but didn't like RB at #2) and he's more of a stud than I expected so I'm just going to hope

I'm not over the Jones pick because it's still bats*** insane to take him at #6. It's clear as day he was still going to be there at #17.

I was at a point of acceptance at #17, but #6 is just asinine.

Also this proves once again that Gettleman is full of s*** in every presser he does. Not that he's obligated to be honest with the media (and frankly when it comes to the draft, he shouldn't be)...but he basically laughed at the questions about whether or not he HAD to take a QB at 6 if he really thought he was a franchise QB.

And then he does it anyway.

No doubt Jones is mobile. He can also run too. He has the build and the athleticism you want in a QB.

But again, none of the highlights (and these are *highlights*, mind you) show that he has a particularly strong arm. He hasn't made any throws yet (I'm watching this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quzIjPdeRHk) that have truly impressed me or suggest that he's a particularly great passer.

He also seems to make a lot of contested throws too. He's...a lot like Eli in that respect

There's no way you can conceivably argue that he was the BPA.

So much for taking best player available
