The Chargers are doing their homework on yet another quarterback in this year’s class, with the latest being Duke’s Daniel Jones, according to Adam Schefter. The Bolts are one of a handful of teams that have trekked out to Durham, North Carolina recently to meet with Jones, with others including the New York Giants, Miami Dolphins, and the Denver Broncos.

Jones is widely considered to be firmly in that second-tier of quarterbacks coming out in 2019 but also a guy that some feel may slip into the mid to late-first round conversation. The same has also been said about West Virginia’s Will Grier.
A three-year starter for the Duke Blue Devils, Jones is an underrated athlete at the position who threw for over 8,201 yards and 52 touchdowns to just 29 interceptions in his career. He also compiled over 1,300+ yards on the ground and another 17 touchdowns.
Following his senior season, Jones was invited to the Reese’s Senior Bowl where he enjoyed one of the best weeks for a quarterback, culminating in Senior Bowl MVP honors. In the third quarter, Jones threw for a touchdown and ran for another to rally the North squad over the South in a 34-24 victory.
