The pick was made and the football world collectively scratched its head in confusion. Daniel Jones? At the sixth pick? With so many great defenders and even Dwayne Haskins still available? What did the Giants see in this guy?

Matt dives into the most talked-about pick of the offseason with Jones' college roommate and Duke teammate Ben Humphreys, as well as Yahoo Sports' Kimberley Martin and Eric Edholm.
