EAST RUTHERFORD Daniel Jones Color Rush Jersey , N.J. (AP) —to Eli Manning and a couple potential starters for the defense in their first NFL draft with three first-round picks.The Giants stunned many at the NFL draft by taking quarterback Daniel Jones of Duke at sixth overall, before selecting Clemson tackle Dexter Lawrence with the 17th pick overall and grabbing Georgia cornerback Deandre Baker with a late trade with Seattle for the 30th selection overall.“It’s a wonderful thing when needs met value,” general manager Dave Gettleman said after the round.In the weeks leading up to the draft, many prognosticators felt the Giants would fill the defensive needs with the sixth pick and then turn their attention to quarterback at No. 17, the pick they got from Cleveland by trading wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., perhaps targeting Dwayne Haskins of Ohio State or Drew Lock of Missouri.Gettleman had other thoughts. He first took Jones, who threw for 8,201 yards and 52 touchdowns in three years starting for Duke after joining the program as a walk-on.“We drafted a quarterback who we feel is a franchise quarterback,” Gettleman said, saying he had a strong conviction about Jones since the Senior Bowl and he was not going to risk losing him by waiting until No. 17.New York grabbed the 342-pound Lawrence with the second choice in the round and then made a late trade getting Baker, who won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation’s best defensive back last year.New York sent three picks to Seattle, a second rounder (No. 37), a fourth rounder (No. 132) and a fifth rounder (No. 142).New York failed to get a pass rusher. They do not have a second-round pick and won’t pick again until No. 95 overall Daniel Jones Giants Jersey , late in the third round. They also need a safety and an offensive tackle.Jones probably will spend his first season being an understudy for Manning, who is now 38 and in the final year of his $84 million contract.Gettleman spoke with Manning after making the pick and told him: “It’s your job, let’s roll.”Jones said he would be comfortable learning from Manning.“Physically, I think I can make every throw on the field,” said Jones, who also ran for 1,323 yards and 17 touchdowns in his college career. “My accuracy is a strength of mine and I have the athleticism to extend plays. I play outside the pocket if I need to. Physically, I can do both those things well.”Jones was developed by David Cutcliffe, the same coach who groomed both Peyton and Eli Manning in college.Jones said he needs to improve his understanding of when to throw the ball away or dump it off to a back.Before the draft, Gettleman said he was in favor of using the Kansas City model in developing a new quarterback. The Chiefs hit a jackpot with Patrick Mahomes, letting him learn under Alex Smith until giving him the starting job last season. The general manager even noted Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers waited three years before replacing Brett Favre.The Giants, who had won eight games in the past two years, have made the playoffs once since winning the Super Bowl in February 2012.Lawrence is massive in the middle Julian Love Jersey , much like Snacks Harrison, who New York traded to Detroit during last season. While Lawrence was a force in the middle for the national champions, Gettleman said he can be a pass rusher, noting a foot injury slowed him the past two seasons.Lawrence was suspended for last season’s College Football Playoff for failing an NCAA test for performance-enhancing drugs. He said Thursday night he was innocent. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said in February that it’s possible the team could have unknowingly given him a supplement with the drug, though the school and NCAA were investigating.“I feel like my game is very powerful, a smart player, non-quit effort kind of guy,”Lawrence said. “That’s just my mindset every play, and how I want to attack every snap.”Baker is steady, tough and disruptive. He also did not give up a touchdown catch in the last two seasons.“The last guy we traded up for we feel was the best cover corner in the draft,” Gettleman said.When asked about having two interceptions last season, Baker said it’s hard to get picks when opposing quarterbacks don’t test him. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Eli Manning pulled out a page from the Daniel Jones‘ playbook. He was perfect in a game in which the heir apparent faced adversity for the first time.The 38-year-old http://www.giantsfanshop.com/Darius-Slayton-Jersey , two-time Super Bowl MVP threw a touchdown pass in a flawless series and the New York Giants had their way with the Chicago Bears‘ backups in a 32-13 preseason victory on Friday night.Jones also threw a touchdown pass, but the sixth pick overall in the draft finally looked like a rookie, losing two fumbles.Article continues below ...Manning’s performance came days after co-owner John Mara said a perfect season would be Jones not taking a snap, which would mean Manning and the Giants were doing well.“John owns the team,” coach Pat Shurmur. “We are on the same page. Well you heard it from the owner and I think I have been saying that all along.”Free agent rookie Jon Hilliman scored on a 10-yard run, Kyle Lauletta threw a 10-yard TD to Garrett Dickerson, Aldrick Rosas kicked a 47-yard field goal and New York (2-0) got a safety on a botched shotgun snap.Chicago coach Matt Nagy rested many key starters in falling to 0-2.Rookie Kerrith Whyte Jr., who had a 103-yard kickoff return in the second quarter nullified by a late holding penalty, scored on a 1-yard run. Eddy Pineiro kicked field goals of 41 and 27 yards for the undermanned Bears.“As a staff, we’re trying to evaluate where our backups are,” Nagy said. “We had to make sure we handled things the right way. My biggest thing is to do what’s best for the Chicago Bears. I feel good about our starters already. I’m not going to worry about that. This gives us a chance to check out our depth.”Much like the preseason opener against the Jets, the focus for Giants fans was on Jones, the sixth pick overall in the draft and a young man many think will lead the team back to respectability.Jones looked good throwing the ball Rhett Ellison Color Rush Jersey , hitting 11 of 14 for 161 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown to TJ Jones. The kid from Duke also showed some flaws, turning over the ball twice on fumbles. He failed to handle a snap at the Bears 19 and coughed up the ball when sacked by James Vaughters.“That’s the way the game goes sometimes,” Daniel Jones said. “You have to try to bounce back and try to score some points.”Manning was very solid, leading the Giants on a 10-play, 79-yard drive that was capped with an 8-yard toss to Bennie Fowler III. He was 4 of 4 for 42 yards.“It helps to win, but it helps just to play well,” said Manning, who had a three and out series in his only work against the Jets. “To move the ball … a lot of receivers are making plays down the field on go-routes and getting open. It makes the competition good in practice. It makes guys hungry to want to get in and make plays. You see the competitiveness. I think that’s good for the team.”Shurmur also liked what he saw.“Along the way he changed a route,” he said about the opening drive. “He really played quarterback well in that drive and got us in the end zone. That’s what you evaluate quarterbacks on, getting the team in the end zone.”Shurmur held out running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Evan Engram for the second straight week. Neither is hurt.FULLER OUTBears All-Pro cornerback Kyle Fuller did not make the trip. He had a fight in practice this week and was left home.“We’re going to handle that internally,” Nagy said. “I don’t want to get into how we handled it or Kyle handled it.”INJURY REPORTBears: OL Rashaad Coward left in the third quarter with an elbow injury.Giants: CB Antonio Hamilton left in the second quarter with a groin injury.NEXT UPBears: on the road again to face the Indianapolis Colts in their next-to-last preseason game on Aug. 24.Giants: at Cincinnati on Thursday night.
