Duke sophomore RB Shaun Wilson rushed for 73 yards on 11 carries, caught three balls for 36 yards and two touchdowns and threw for a four-yard touchdown in Saturday's 43-20 win over Georgia Tech.

Wilson was everywhere today. We want to talk about the passing touchdown, because it was a slick bit of play-calling by offensive coordinator Zac Roper. On Georgia Tech's 4-yard line, QB Daniel Jones handed the ball to Wilson, who took a few steps towards the line of scrimmage before floating a jump pass to a wide-open TE Daniel Helm. That gave Duke a 36-20 lead early in the fourth quarter and essentially put the game out of hand. Duke closes out the regular season at Wake Forest next week.
Nov 18 - 7:29 PM

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones went 18-for-26 for 177 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 43-20 win over Georgia Tech.

Jones was also killer when he got out of the pocket, rushing for 91 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown scamper. We've been underwhelmed with him so far this season, but showings like this display Jones' (6'5/215) tools. He's big and athletic, but his game inside the pocket needs work. The 5-6 Blue Devils must upset Wake Forest next week on the road to go bowling.
Nov 18 - 7:21 PM

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 19-of-29 passes for 164 yards and an interception while rushing for 22 yards and a score in Saturday's 21-16 loss to Army.

We came into the campaign with higher hopes for both Jones and his Duke team, but both have underwhelmed in 2017. Jones owns a poor 8/8 TD/INT ratio and is averaging well less than 6.0 YPA. With the lack of explosion, you'd think his completion percentage would have spiked. Not so. After completing 62.8-percent of his passes last year, he's a shade under 54.0-percent this year.
Nov 11 - 3:41 PM

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 10-of-24 passes for 82 yards and an interception while rushing for 65 yards in Saturday's 24-3 loss to Virginia Tech.

While Jones did manage to do a decent job as a runner, this was a punch-less, embarrassing performance by the Blue Devils on the whole. They finished with just 183 yards of total offense as a team. With the loss, Duke has now dropped five consecutive games. They'll be off on a much-needed bye next weekend.
Oct 28 - 11:06 PM

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 15-of-33 passes for 272 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 24-17 loss to Pitt.

Jones connected on a pair of third-quarter touchdown passes, but those represented essentially the whole of Duke's scoring output on the afternoon. The redshirt sophomore owns just an 8/6 TD/INT ratio in eight games this season.
Oct 21 - 5:10 PM

Duke junior WR T.J. Rahming caught eight passes for 142 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 24-17 loss to Pitt.

Rahming hauled in a 39-yard touchdown pass from Daniel Jones with just under 30 seconds remaining in the third quarter. He's now posted back-to-back 100-yard receiving efforts after failing to hit that mark since the second week of the season. On the whole, the junior is working to a 44-567-1 receiving line.

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.
Sep 29 - 10:51 PM

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.
