It was certainly an eventful first night at the NFL draft, as there were many surprises including the New York Giants selecting Duke quarterback Daniel Jones at #6 in the first round. 

The unexpected move shocked football fans worldwide as many experts had expected the Giants to select Dwayne Haskins out of Ohio State, who threw for 4,831 yards, 50 touchdowns and only eight interceptions in his one collegiate year. 

Although Giants fans have been desperate to move on from Eli Manning, they themselves appeared to be disappointed that Jones was chosen over Haskins, who was seen on camera seemingly in disbelief as other teams in need of quarterbacks passed on him one by one. 

When he was finally picked at #15 for his hometown team in the Washington Redskins, he delivered a message to all the teams that overlooked him, saying to a reporter "To be honest I'm more motivated now than ever, there's a bigger chip on my shoulder, the league done messed up."

Haskins finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting and was a third-team All-American, while in comparison NFL experts are split on Jones collegiate success as well as his upside as an NFL starter. Meanwhile, an interesting side note is that Jones isn't the only Duke quarterback to be drafted by the Giants in recent memory, as fans of the team will remember the Dave Brown era of the mid-1990s. 

As far as other quarterbacks selected in the first round, Kyler Murray of Oklahoma was selected by the Arizona Cardinals as the first overall pick.
