Can Duke quarterback Daniel Jones play NFL ball in New York?
New York Giants fans watching the NFL Draft at MetLife stadium did not appear too pleased with their team’s pick.
A video on social media shows fans at the stadium booing when NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the Giants had selected Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick.
The Giants needed a quarterback in the draft, but it was not the pick many were expecting.
Some draft experts projected the Giants to choose Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, who was considered the second highest rated quarterback in the 2019 NFL draft.
Fans can be heard in the video yelling, “Oh no!” and “Oh my God!” Some fans in the video can be seen with their hands on their heads in disbelief.
Jones, a 6-5, 221-pound quarterback was a three-year starter for the Blue Devils. He was their first draft pick since 2015.
He led the Blue Devils to a 8-5 record this past season and a second consecutive bowl game. He threw for 2,674 yards, 22 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also completed 237 of 392 pass attempts.
