Maybe Giants GM Dave Gettleman wasn’t wrong when he said other teams were looking at Duke QB Daniel Jones, who many feel the G-men reached for big time using the Number 6 overall pick on him.
The problem is, if a team took him it’s because they needed a tight end.
This according to the New York Daily News who reported yesterday that at least one team wanted Jones to work out as a tight end at the combine because they didn’t think he was good enough to start at QB in the NFL.
Gettleman has defended the pick, saying he knew for certain there were at least two teams that would have taken Jones before New York picked a second time in the first round (at Number 17 overall). Yet that statement has since been debunked thoroughly by numerous NFL insiders.
Hey, maybe Gettleman can defend it by saying he has a position player.
While Gettleman remains in a very awkward one.
