Draft Scout *Daniel Jones News
01/29/19 - Daniel Jones got his bad Senior Bowl moments out of the way long before kickoff. The Duke quarterback threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score in the third quarter to lead the North to a 34-24 victory over the South Saturday, putting a nice finishing touch on the weeklong job interview with NFL teams. "Just showing the poise and showing kind of a comfort in the offense is something they wanted to see," Jones said. "At times, I'm not sure I did great with that, to be honest. But here in the game, I think I did get comfortable and I got into a rhythm. Hopefully that showed them something and showed them I had the ability to do that and had the resiliency to do that." Projected as a likely first-round pick , Jones turned in an efficient 8-of-11, 115-yard passing performance. Then, North Carolina State's Ryan Finley took over in the fourth quarter with similar results. Jones, one of 11 junior graduates in the game, and Finley ignited a North team that trailed 12-3 at halftime only to score on its first five drives of the second half. He at least had the comfort of a familiar city since Jones is training in Mobile with David Morris at QB Country leading up to the combine. - AP College Football
01/02/19 - Duke quarterback Daniel Jones and linebacker Joe Giles-Harris are skipping their senior seasons to enter the NFL draft. They announced their decisions Monday, four days after the Blue Devils beat Temple in the Independence Bowl. The 6-foot-5 Jones completed nearly 60 percent of his passes while throwing for 8,201 yards and 52 touchdowns in three seasons as the starter. He threw for five TDs and rushed for another in the bowl victory. Giles-Harris averaged more than nine tackles in 34 career games and became the school's first two-time all-Atlantic Coast Conference linebacker in more than 30 years. Coach David Cutcliffe says he supports both players' decisions, calling Jones "a cornerstone of our program" and saying he "could not be more appreciative of Joe's commitment and dedication." - AP College Football

11/11/18 - Daniel Jones kept Duke moving to big yardage totals, while the Blue Devils' defense provided help when the offense stumbled. That has the Blue Devils keeping the Victory Bell after another rivalry win against North Carolina. Jones accounted for a program-record 547 total yards and four touchdowns to help Duke beat UNC 42-35 on Saturday, earning the program's third straight win in the longtime series of nearby neighbors. Jones threw for 361 yards and three touchdowns for the Blue Devils (7-3, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). He also ran for a 61-yard touchdown and had a 68-yard keeper in a 186-yard rushing day, helping Duke finish with a season-high 629 yards.
And there was no shortage of praise for the redshirt junior's performance. "Daniel Jones played as well as a quarterback can play," said Duke coach David Cutcliffe, who has had a few notable pupils in his coaching career that includes a couple of guys named Peyton and Eli Manning. "I know I'm not the fastest guy on the field," Jones said of his runs. "I was trying to run as fast as I could. Both of those long runs, I'm not sure I really got touched, and I think that's a credit to those guys up front." Jones' 547 yards of total offense were also the most ever allowed by UNC, surpassing the record of 525 yards set last year by reigning Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson of Louisville. - AP College Football
