Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (Daniel Jones) just passed the midpoint of his second season.
After 22 games (21 games), the jury is still on him. Can he be a quarterback for the team? Or will the Giants eventually have to find someone else to become Eli Manning’s successor?

In thinking about these issues, let us consider how Jones compares with other outstanding young quarterbacks in the NFL.
For the purpose of this exercise, we will only consider quarterbacks drafted from the 201
So let’s sort them (from worst to best) while also paying attention to where they are drafted.
13. Josh Rosen, Cardinals/Dolphins/Pirates (2018, 10th): Completely failed. He started 13 games as a rookie for the Cardinals and started three games with the Dolphins last season. He will always be just a backup. He is now on the practice team in Tampa Bay. His career statistics are: 12 touchdowns, 19 interceptions, 63.5 points.
12 Dwayne HaskinsWashington (2019, 15th): The new coach Ron Rivera gave up after starting four games this season. In the 11 starts of his career, he has 11 touchdowns, 10 draft picks and a 77.8 rating. Expect Washington to try to trade him in the next offseason, and then select the quarterback high again. Similar to Rosen, but can be understood as a quick hook.
11. Mitchell Trubisky, Bear (2017, second place): He ended in Chicago. It was a bad choice, especially after the Bears traded him. They gave him every opportunity-started 44 times. But before being replaced by Nick Foles, he only played three games this season.
10. Gardner Minsher, Jaguar (2019, 178th): He left a deep impression on the rookie, but he has not performed well this season. Now he is injured. If the Jaguars get the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, they won’t be able to inherit Trevor Lawrence, right?
9. Sam Darnold, Jets (2018, third place): He missed three games in the first two seasons. And he missed three games this season. Even if he has played this season, his performance is not very good-3 touchdowns, 6 drafts, 65.9 level. If the quality of the jet is so bad that you can’t choose the first place, look for the jet to draft Lawrence-maybe.
8. Daniel Jones, Giants (2019, sixth place): Turnover rate is still Jones’ problem. But he is ahead of Danold on the list because Danold has a longer record in the struggle. Now Jones only needs to defeat opponents outside of Washington. His record against this rotten organization is 4-0 and 1-16 in other games. Crazy statistics.
7. Drew Lock, Mustang (2019, 42nd): So far, partly because of injuries, he has only started 11 games. But we like his advantages. Look at his performance in the first five starts last season-4-1 record, seven touchdowns, three draft picks, and a score of 89.7.
6. Baker Mayfield, Browns (2018, first place): His rookie season was strong, and then he declined in 2019. But he has a good 5–3 record this year, 15 touchdowns, 7 draft picks, and a 90.9 rating. His more stable performance is an important reason for the outstanding performance of the Browns.
5. Josh Allen, Bills (2018, seventh): Probably no one would expect him to lead Rosen, Darnold and Mayfield on this list in the past two or more seasons. But after a difficult rookie season, he has been steadily improving. His total statistics for the 2019-20 season is a 17-8 record, 39 touchdowns, 14 picks, and 94.2 points. The Bill is in the second consecutive playoff position, something they have never done since the 1998-99 season.
4. Kyler Murray, Cardinal (2019, first place): He was very impressed with his performance last season. Dangerous double threatening quarterback. Yes, the Cardinals only started 10-13-1, but his numbers are really good-36 touchdowns, 19 catches, 91.5 rating. Murray also has eight rushing touchdowns and 67.9 rushing yards per game this season.
3. DeShawn Watson, Texas (2017, No. 12): He has not yet reached the MVP level of Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson. But he is clearly third on this list. He is a two-time professional bowling game, which is his 45 starting numbers-88 touchdowns, 34 drafts and 102.4 levels.
2. Lamar Jackson, “Ravens” (2018, 32nd): Appointed as MVP. He is a 25-5 starter with 54 touchdowns, 13 catches and a 102.1 rating. Now, can he win the playoffs?
1. Dean Patrick Mahomes (2017, 10th place): Won the 2018 regular season MVP and last season’s Super Bowl MVP. The only quarterback on this list with a Super Bowl ring. He is already on his way to the Hall of Fame. Striking career statistics-32 wins and 8 losses, 101 touchdowns, 19 drafts, 110.5 points. Absolutely untrue.
