15Daniel Jones, quarterback, Duke Blue Devils
A monster performance can feel great whenever it happens, but it’s even more meaningful when it comes against one of your school’s biggest rivals.
Jones put on a clinic in Saturday’s big win over North Carolina with a sharp performance through the air and on the ground. He threw for 361 yards with three touchdowns and added another touchdown with 181 yards on the ground.
Jones, 21, showed everyone in attendance why he needs to be on the NFL radar. He is a machine at quarterback with outstanding dual-threat ability. Of course, Jones will need to do even more if Duke wants to compete against Clemson on Nov. 17.
