REPORT: Giants Panicked and Took QB Daniel Jones Out of Fear These Two Teams Would Take Him

It looks like the New York Giants actually had a reason to take QB Daniel Jones with the 6th overall pick in the NFL Draft.

Giants G.M. Dave Gettleman is not only defending the decision, but gave a reason as to why he took him so early instead of waiting until their 17th pick.

“I know for a fact there were two teams who would have taken [Jones] before 17 … It wasn’t easy for me to pass up Josh Allen. It was very very difficult. But I think that much of Daniel Jones and his future as an NFL QB,” Gettleman said, via Tom Rock of Newsday.

The two teams? Redskins and Broncos.
