The jump from year one to year two for any starting quarterback in the NFL is paramount in terms of progression. Learning how to read defenses at a higher level, becoming more accurate, and getting used to the fast game speed are all aspects that need to be improved upon.
For Giants QB Daniel Jones, he's focused on the physical aspect of his development. During this current virtual offseason, Jones has taken it upon himself to work on his body, gaining nine pounds of muscle.
Jones already checked in at 221 pounds for his rookie campaign. Beefing up to 230 puts him at a solid build that will be ready for contact in heated NFC East battles in which the defenses are physical. With the Cowboys and Eagles beefing up their units in a big way, Jones is ready to take them head on and show them who's built to take over the division.
With Jones’ gain in weight, he will be more sustainable in terms of taking hits in the pocket. It will also help with his physicality as a runner when he decides to use his legs given his impressive mobility as a quarterback.
With Jones and running back Saquon Barkley in the backfield, Big Blue has the potential for a very bright future.
