The Giants ended that mini-run of D-linemen to open the draft when they took Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick in the NFL Draft.

Jones has learned under Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe — the same man who tutored Peyton and Eli Manning.

Jones was considered an outsider to go in the opening round until recently, and the Giants clearly feel he can do some more learning under Eli Manning before taking over as their signal caller.

Jones was the MVP of the Senior Bowl.
