New York Giants: Daniel Jones named team’s most improved player by Pro Football Focus

The New York Giants‘ offense was pitiful in 2020, averaging only 17.5 points per game. Despite this, the team saw growth from its second-year quarterback, Daniel Jones. The sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft was a highly scrutinized selection. But the young gunslinger out of Duke has exceeded all expectations so far and is heading into a crucial third season.

Daniel Jones’s 2019 rookie season got off to a hot start, but his turnover tendency weighed things down. His 2020 sophomore season garnered similar results early on, but down the stretch, Jones took huge steps forward in his ball security and overall passing efficiency.
