The Giants gave him some new toys in Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney, but the offensive line is still a mess. In addition, Saquon Barkley is coming off a devastating knee injury. It's a make or break year for Jones. My money is on break. Avoid

Daniel Jones is a turnover machine. In the 27 NFL games he's played in, Jones has 29 fumbles and 22 INTs. The one crutch is that when Saquon Barkley is healthy, he's been a better version of himself statistically. A healthy run game goes a long way for any QB, but Wayne Gallman had some strong games last year, while Jones continued to spiral. The Giants offensive line is still nothing to write home about. The curious mish-mosh of WR receiver additions year over year (Kenny Golladay, John Ross, Kadarius Toney) have set Jones up for a situation where it all doesn't come together, the Giants (and all of their massive 2022 draft capital) will be selecting another QB. Last year, the Broncos created a similar situation surrounding QB Drew Lock with so much talent it appeared "too big to fail," but it failed nonetheless. This may be the end for Daniel Jones.

It is put up or shut up time for Daniel Jones after getting some new weapons. If this does truly unlock Jones' potential, he could be a good dart throw late in drafts.

Jones had 423 yards rushing and 1 rushing touchdown last year, but in Year 3 he needs to be a better passer to justify the Giants continuing to entrust the franchise to him. He is a low-upside QB2.

It's hard to watch what New York has done this off-season and not say that Jones is a winner. All the Giants have done is give Jones everything he needs to be successful and it's now all up to him. While he has the fumbling and interception problems, he now has enough playmakers around him where he should be able to take that next step forward. Will it be enough to vault him into top-12 consideration? Probably not. However, he certainly walks out of this off-season with his stock on the rise.
