Duke QB Daniel Jones has ‘first-round potential’

-

For the Duke Blue Devils, either Thomas Sirk or Parker Boehme will be the starting guy at the quarterback position. However, it looks like they could have a rising star in redshirt freshman Daniel Jones.

In a mailbag article, FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman was asked about this year’s star quarterback. He said that Sirk, who tore his Achilles earlier this year, could be a wildcard, but then later said that head coach David Cutcliffe praised Jones, who likely won’t see much action this year.

“At Duke, Thomas Sirk is coming off a torn Achilles. I’m told his rehab is ahead of schedule. But remember the name Daniel Jones. He’s a former walk-on from a private school in North Carolina. He grew three inches in his senior year and is now about 6-4, 210 and his arm has created a lot of buzz among the Duke staff. Last month, I told David Cutcliffe I heard he’s got first-round potential and he admitted with Jones’ talent that could be the case.”

Daniel Jones was a member of their 2015 recruiting class and did not receive a rating by any outlets. However, he could certainly strive under an offensive mind like Cutcliffe.

If Sirk isn’t completely healthy going into the 2016 season, Jones would play the backup role to Boehme. He could have a shot at playing this year and it would certainly make for a big impact in his chances to get drafted early in the NFL Draft.
