Draft Profile: Daniel Jones – Aaron Kagan

by Aaron Kagan

Daniel Jones

6’5″, 220 lbs., Junior

2018 statistics:

2,674 pass yd, 22 TD, 9 INT, 60.5% Comp, 319 rush yd, 3 TD

Strengths:

-Touch on the ball
He can deliver the ball with solid accuracy, while giving receivers a chance to run after the catch.
-Ideal size
Allows him to see over the line of scrimmage at all times and extend plays by shaking off pass rushers.
-Decision making
He does not turn the ball over very often and typically only throws the ball where his receiver can catch it

Weaknesses:

-Arm strength
Does not get enough velocity behind the ball when throwing more than 20 yards past the line of scrimmage.
-Throws before reading the defense
Predetermining where he is going to throw the football gets him in trouble at times by not focusing on complex passing routes
-Many short throws
He averaged only 6.4 yards per pass attempt, mainly because he would look to screens and slants when his first read breaks down

Summary:

Daniel Jones can find success in the NFL with good coaching. He has the physical attributes of a great quarterback, only he needs to work on trusting his reads and going through his progressions. With a great coach, there is no limit to Daniel Jones’ possibilities for the future.
