Almost immediately after, NFL scuttlebutt provided the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos as two teams that were hot after Jones. And those teams made sense in the moment. After all Youth Julian Love Jersey , Washington selected Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins at 15th overall, while the Broncos selected Missouri’s Drew Lock early in the second round.Since then, reports have come out contradicting that belief. Matt Miller of Bleacher Report has said that an AFC executive told him that ”There is no way he was going anywhere else in the top 17 picks.” The executive added that his team, “couldn’t find any team other than the Giants who had Jones ranked in the top two passers.”On Sirus XM NFL Radio Wednesday morning, Duke coach David Cutcliffe backed Gettleman’s assertion that Jones would not have last until the 17th pick.Meanwhile, Dianna Russini of ESPN said on ESPN Radio in New York that “The Redskins and Broncos were never taking Daniel Jones. In Washington Womens Julian Love Jersey , some tried to convince ownership they should take Jones but it never was going to happen.”Mike Klis, who covers the Denver Broncos, stated that the Broncos were not interested in Jones, at least not in the first round: Washington team president, Bruce Allen, appeared on the NFL Network and said Authentic Julian Love Jersey , “I’m almost positive Dave has no clue what our draft board would be. I don’t know which draft boards he knows, but he doesn’t know ours.”While that is a completely predictable answer — no executive is going on national TV and saying that their draft room is compromised, nor that the player they selected wasn’t who they wanted to draft — it is also pretty definitive. Was Gettleman fed false information? Could there have been other teams looking to trade into the top 16 for Jones? The world may never know.
