NFL.com draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes that Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones is an "under-the-radar" prospect for the 2018 draft.

Jones (6'5/215) hasn't put up elite passing numbers for the Blue Devils this year, but it's not all about stats, as Jeremiah notes. "He throws a nice, catchable ball and he also displays some toughness in the pocket," Jeremiah said. When you add that with his size, it makes Jones at the very least an intriguing prospect at the most premium of positions.

Duke junior RB T.J. Rahming caught eight passes for 111 yards in the school's 17-10 loss to FSU on Saturday.

This included a 57-yard catch on a fully extended grab, an outstanding play by Rahming. This is the second time Rahming has gone over 100 yards receiving this season, the first since Northwestern in game No. 2.
Oct 14 - 3:10 PM

Duke released a clean injury report in advance of Saturday's game against Virginia.

No news is good news for the Blue Devils, particularly at this juncture of the season, when injuries have usually started to pile up to varying degrees. This weekend's contest is an intriguing under-the-radar game, as Duke currently sits at 4-1 and Virginia at 3-1.
Oct 5 - 5:32 PM

Duke junior WR T.J. Rahming caught just two passes for 27 yards in a 31-6 drubbing to Miami on Friday.

Rahming came into the game with 24 catches on the year, but the top Blue Devils wideout got nothing going against a legit Miami Hurricanes' defense that caused QB Daniel Jones to be inaccurate with the football -- when he wasn't being sacked, anyway. Duke and Rahming should get back to rolling offensively next week when they travel to Virginia.
Sep 29 - 10:57 PM

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 21-of-41 passes for 166 yards and an interception in a 31-6 loss to Miami (FL) on Saturday.

Jones (6'5/215) has seen his draft stock soar from his strong play in the first three games. He might wanna burn the game tape on this one. To be fair to him, he had no time to throw, as the Hurricanes' defense was just too fast for the Blue Devil offensive line to handle. He was constantly under pressure, taking multiple sacks, and being forced to check the football down. Jones will look to get back on track next week against Virginia.

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones is "drawing a lot of praise in scouting circles," according to Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Pauline added that some scouts now grade Jones as a Day 2 (Rds. 2-3) prospect. "The steady, efficient quarterback outplayed the more notable Clay Thorson during the Blue Devils' lambasting of Northwestern in Week 2," Pauline wrote. The analyst mentioned that a few sources have told him that there is a chance Jones enters the draft after this season. The 6-foot-5, 215-pound Jones is completing 61.9-percent of his passes on 6.50 YPA with a 5/2 TD/INT rate through four games.
Sep 29 - 1:25 PM

Duke redshirt freshman RB Brittain Brown (upper-body) is probably for Friday's game against Miami.

Brown (6'1/200) sat out practice at the beginning of the week, but was able to return without issue on Tuesday. His presence against the Hurricanes would be a welcome one for the Blue Devils. The redshirt freshman back is second on the team in rushing behind Shaun Wilson, having racked up 325 yards while working to a 6.3 YPC clip.
Sep 28 - 3:38 PM

Duke junior WR T.J. Rahming caught six passes for 73 yards in Saturday's 27-17 win over UNC.

Duke, now a perfect 4-0, continues to impress. The defense is aggressive and the offense is efficient, a formula that worked like a charm in non-conference play and has now carried over into the first game of the ACC slate. Rahming, a possession receiver, has 24 receptions for 248 yards and no scores through four games.
Sep 23 - 7:15 PM

Duke sophomore RB Shaun Wilson rushed for 176 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries in Saturday's 34-20 win over Baylor.

He also chipped in as a receiver with five catches for 32 yards. Wilson has been rock solid through three games, rushing for 293 yards and four touchdowns during Duke's 3-0 start.
Sep 16 - 4:36 PM

ESPN's Todd McShay listed Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones as an NFL Draft "riser."

Jones showed flashes down the stretch last year by completing 64-percent of his passes with a 9/1 TD/INT rate in the final six games of 2016. This fall, he's started out by completing 68.6-percent of his passes with a 4/1 TD/INT rate. He also showed athleticism in rushing for 108 yards and two scores against Northwestern last week.

Sep 15 - 1:28 PM

Duke junior WR T.J. Rahming caught 12 passes for 127 yards in the school's 41-17 win over Northwestern on Saturday.

Rahming is a name to monitor moving forward. He only caught two passes in a blowout win last week, but the passing game wasn't needed. Rahming caught 70 passes last year but only one score.
Sep 9 - 3:44 PM

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 29 of 45 attempts for 305 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the school's 41-17 throttling of Northwestern.

Jones added another 108 rushing yards and two scores. He was extremely impressive in the contest, showing poise in the face of pressure and creating big plays with his feet and arm. The Devils face Baylor next weekend.
Sep 9 - 3:39 PM

Duke junior WR T.J. Rahming left in the first half against Northwestern due to an undisclosed injury.

Rahming was able to return in the second half, but it's worth monitoring his injury status over the course of the upcoming practice week in case the undisclosed issue is one that could potentially linger. Duke plays Baylor next Saturday.
Sep 9 - 3:07 PM

Duke redshirt freshman WR Scott Bracey (leg) is doubtful for Saturday's game against Northwestern

Bracey (6'2/210) hauled in a pair of passes for 27 yards in Duke's season-opening win against NC Central on Saturday. He was a consensus four-star prospect in the 2016 class. His availability for this weekend will be determined over the next two days.
Sep 7 - 4:32 PM

Duke resdshirt QB Daniel Jones threw for 213 yards and two touchdowns in a 60-7 victory over North Carolina Central on Saturday.

He also ran for 19 yards on four carries with a touchdown, for good measure. This could have been a much bigger statistical game for the 6-foot-5, 215-pounder, but he was pulled early and the Blue Devils ran the ball at will. His first scoring pass was a 54-yard connection with Aaron Young, and he found Jonathan Lloyd for a 22 yard score in the third to make it 53-7. Jones gets rave reviews from scouts because of his size and arm strength, and he didn't do the one thing scouts worry about: turn the football over. His ability to run and throw makes him one of the more underrated pro prospects in the ACC.
