I think the good news for Jones is that he isn't so great that he'll be taken by a bottom dweller with an ultra early pick, rather he'll (hopefully) go to a good organization who can afford to bring him along slowly. Maybe in the first round, maybe the second or third, we'll see.
    He is a hot property right now. Several mocks in the past few days have him going in the first half of the first round, which could mean he is on a mediocre-lousy team. But, I agree with other that draft stock is best measured after the combine. Regardless, it is good for Duke to have one of our kids being talked about this way and it is sure to enhance our recruiting profile. QB is a big deal position (duuuh!) and if Daniel ever becomes a NFL starter, it would raise the profile of the Duke program rather significantly, I think.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Just wanted to pop in and say that, except for the last sentence, someone could make this exact same post for men's basketball in April. As in, word for word.

    We've lost one "quarterback" named Jones to the draft. Hopefully, someway, somehow, we keep the other one another year in MBB.

    Just thought this coincidence was interesting.

    Eh, I'm hopeful that we win a national championship this year. And if we do, that almost certainly means the other Jones is going pro (he's probably going pro either way, but even more likely to if we win the title). If Jones is back next year, that most likely means this year won't have gone as well as expected/hoped for either Jones or for Duke. So, honestly, I hope Jones ISN'T back next year, as it most likely means this year left unfinished business on the table.

    As for the Jones that this thread refers to, it's quite a career growth to go from being a lightly-recruited high school player to a potential 1st round pick. Lots of credit to both him and the staff for getting him to this point. I wouldn't have seen this coming even 2 years ago.

    Good point. Hey, I'm a big fan of Daniel Jones, but there is a lot of irrational exuberance out there right now. I agree with everyone that the combine will be very important...beers will be on me if he goes in the first round (*).
    At the college level he gets an inordinate number of passes tipped or batted down at the line of scrimmage, which I mention partly because it matters, and party because having watched the Temple game several times, no one on the broadcast seems to have noticed that on the next play (I believe) after he caught his own tipped pass, his TD pass to the tight end was also tipped (enough to put a nice wobble on it). I got a kick out of that.

    As for the less tall Mr. Tre Jones, the Womble Rule remains in effect: all players who win a national championship should feel free to move on to the NBA. Doesn't matter anyway, we know OAD fever is highly contagious,
    Tre will be joining his buds and bro next year unless his game somehow craters.

    Fields headed to the Ohio State University.

    Note sure if it's official but looking that way: http://www.espn.com/college-football...tate-next-week

    Classic line from the link is from a redshirt freshman quarterback who threw down the gauntlet to Fields if Fields chooses OSU:

    The Buckeyes will bring back redshirt freshman Tate Martell of Las Vegas, who was ranked the No. 127 player overall and No. 6 dual-threat quarterback in the 2017 ESPN 300. Martell completed 23 of 28 passes for 269 yards with 1 touchdown in 2018, while rushing for 128 yards with 2 scores.

    In a tweet on Dec. 21, Martell seemed to warn Fields about picking Ohio State as a transfer destination: "word of advice: -- don't swing and miss ... especially not your second time."

    Would Cut consider Hurts if he gains his transfer?

    He has gained it...he's in the system. And I think Cut might consider it, but I don't think Cut would pursue it - and frankly I don't think there's any chance Hurts will consider Duke anyway. And I can certainly see some downside if he were to come to Duke.

    Gets to play Alabama his first game and is coached by the QB whisperer- sounds like a good opportunity for him.

    Yes, you can. Have you seen some of those imposters out there?
