One of the keys to the plan’s ultimate success or failure will be the willingness of the pupil — Jones — to learn.Thursday night, in a brief conference call with New York media, he sounded ready.“I think it’s a tremendous opportunity to learn for a young quarterback,” Jones said. “He is a guy that’s had a whole lot of success in the NFL and there is a reason for that. I’m looking to understand that and do my best to learn as much as I can from him while he’s in New York.”Jones will, of course, be viewed as the heir apparent. He said Thursday that he is “going to be myself and not try to be Eli or be anything but myself.”Here are some of the other things Jones touched on.On what he does well ...“I think physically, I can make every throw on the field. My accuracy is certainly I feel a strength of mine, and I think I have the athleticism to extend plays and play outside the pocket if I need to. So physically I think I can do both those things well.”On what he can improve on ...“I think I can get better at times making that decision to lay the ball off or throw it away. Coach Cut (David Cutcliffe) at Duke said understanding when to stop competing, understanding when a play is over with. I think I can do better with that.”On meeting coach Pat Shurmur ...“I thought it was great. I think we connected and he is certainly someone who I have a lot of respect for and he’s been a really good coach in the NFL for a long time. So getting to know him and being able to interact with him through this process was great and I thought it went well.”On what adversity he has faced ...“If you look back at my recruitment Corey Ballentine Jersey Boys , I came to Duke as a walk-on, a guy who wasn’t recruited very heavily and I think that was part of it. Not being immediately obvious that I would play college football somewhere or at the level I thought I could, but it worked out and Coach Cut gave me the opportunity to walk-on and I eventually earned a scholarship, but I had to overcome it and I’m glad it went the way it went and I wouldn’t do it any other way.” EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After two days of rookie minicamp, it’s easy to see why the New York Giants drafted Daniel Jones of Duke with the No. 6 pick.He reminds them of someone they know: Eli Manning.Jones can throw all the passes. His focus is football. And when he talks about life in the NFL, he sounds like a coach.Jones may be bland, but that’s the way the Giants like their players these days. Team first, everything else second.Rock the boat and the Giants’ patience will run out — as it did with Odell Beckham Jr.In the minicamp that ends Sunday, Jones’ throws were crisp. If there was any drawback, some tosses had a little too much heat on them.He showed he could handle the media. He said nothing controversial and didn’t bother to see what anyone had written or said about him.“I got up, got over here and opened up the second install,” he said. “That’s what I needed to do.”Coming to the camp White Cody Latimer Jerseys , the Giants gave Jones a portion of their playbook so they could run plays with the 76 players in attendance.“It has been manageable, but it’s all new stuff for everyone,” Jones said. “I think it was a good amount of stuff. It’s going to be a challenge just to learn the verbiage and the way everything is called, the way everything is structured in the offense. I thought it was a good amount for the first day and we kind of got an equal amount the second.”Jones will be given a bigger package to take home to North Carolina. The rookies and free agents are due back a week from Monday, when they will start working with the veterans.“I’m going to try to learn as much as I possibly can,” said Jones, who also plans to throw during the week off. “It’s tough without being on the field necessarily in 11-on-11 football, but if he expects me to do it, I will make sure I do my best to do it.”Coach Pat Shurmur has been pleased with what he has seen, although the 21-year-old is going to have to make adjustments.While the fundamentals are relatively the same, New York has its quarterbacks under center much more than Duke did. The Giants also have different drop backs that will cause Jones to adjust some of his footwork, the coach said.Jones brings a new element to the position — his ability to move in the pocket. The 38-year-old Manning has rarely scrambled since taking over as the Giants quarterback in 2004.“I really believe you have to be able to move,” Shurmur said. “There has to be mobility. Whether you are moving around in the pocket Youth Evan Engram Jerseys , scrambling, you have to be able to move. He can do that. Then, arm strength. If you don’t have the first few, arm strength means nothing, in my mind. He has arm strength as well. I think you saw that as well.”Since the draft, Shurmur said Manning has had no response to the Giants taking an heir apparent.“I have never been around a person that can stay in the moment better than Eli,” Shurmur said. “That is something that is really unique about him. He is staying in the moment and training to have a terrific season. He looks really good out here throwing, moving and doing all the things necessary.”NOTES: S Jacob Thieneman and LB Nate Harvey sustained knee injuries that may require surgery, Shurmur said. He said they were hurt in non-contact drills. … Jones was intercepted in Saturday afternoon’s practice by free agent cornerback McKinley Whitfield of Tulsa. The pass was initially tipped by cornerback DeAndre Baker, the Giants’ third pick in the first round.
