Patriots fans went through 2 grueling hours in this years NFL Draft, but came away with a new face of the franchise. University of Alabama quarterback Mac Jones will lead the New England Patriots into the future. Jones led the Crimson Tide to the National Championship last season, and was rumored to go as early as 3rd overall to the 49ers. Belichick’s gamble of not trading up paid off.
Michael “Mac” Jones is listed at 6 ft 3 in, 214 pounds. He was a nominee for the 2020 Heisman Award. He won the 2020 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award for college football’s top upper classmen QB, was a member of the First Team All-SEC, and was a Consensus All-American.
Jones is a highly efficient quarterback who completed 77% of his passes for 4,036 yards and threw for 36 touchdowns and only four interceptions last season.
