When the sixth pick of the NFL Draft, the New York Giants shocked the football world when Roger Goodell read that Duke QB Daniel Jones was being picked.

The decision was met with many videos showing fans at the draft booing, fans at Metlife booing, and fans at various draft parties losing their minds over the pick.

On Wednesday, the apparent successor to Eli Manning finally got a chance to speak out about the reactions he got when the Giants selected him and the fan base didn’t like it.

Via Sirius XM:

“I haven’t paid too much mind to that,” Jones said on SiriusXM NFL Radio’s “Late Hits” about the draft reaction. “I think that’s key to playing quarterback, to being consistent as a quarterback, is keeping your head in the same place. I think that just comes down to your confidence in yourself, and your confidence has got to come from inside of you. I think if you’re looking externally for confidence, then you’re also going to be affected by the negative as well. Just finding confidence in yourself and knowing what you can do as a player, as a person, is kind of the way that works and the best way to think about handling a lot of that stuff.”

Jones believes he’s in the perfect position to learn from a future hall of famer:

“I think it’s a tremendous opportunity for a young guy to go into a place where there’s a future Hall of Famer who’s done it for a really long time at a really high level and definitely knows what it takes,” Jones said. “So that to me is a big advantage in where I am right now. So I’m looking forward to it, just being teammates with him, being able to learn from him in the building every day. I think that’s a special opportunity. I’ve spoken to him once (since the draft) and he just congratulated me, said he’s excited to be up there. I think I understand he’s got a job to do, I’ve got a job to do, so we’re going to do the best we can to help the Giants win as many football games as we can, and I’m certainly happy with whatever my role is.”

Who knows, Jones might be in the starting position as soon as next season.
