The New England Patriots will have to address the quarterback situation in the 2021 NFL Draft. Everything points to the fact that the team will miss on Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, BYU’s Zach Wilson, or Ohio State’s Justin Fields. But, the team can easily go after Alabama’s Mac Jones with their No.15 pick in the NFL draft. Jones looks like the perfect Patriots target.
Ryan Wilson from CBS Sports believes that the team will go after Jones and Trey Lance from North Dakota State.
Lance probably has a small lead in the race. Recent photos may affect his success in the Draft. Jones led the Crimson Tide to another win on Monday and played really well with 464 passing yards and 5 touchdown passes. He was brilliant, but NFL fans weren’t focused on his performance. Everyone was so focused on an image of Jones. In this photo, we can see the shirtless player, and it’s now viral. Some decided to poke fun at Jones’ physique.
Patriots to get the best target
Big Cat of Barstool Sports earned a lot of likes and retweets. From what we can see, Jones isn’t someone who lifts weights. Will this affect his role in the NFL? Will he be able to lead his teams to the Super Bowl?
The 2021 NFL Draft is packed with quarterbacks. Many players are expected to be first-round selections. At least two of them will make history. Of course, this group may turn out to be like the 1983 class. This group featured Dan Marino, John Elway, Jim Kelly, and Ken O’Brien.
Jones may not be the star in this group. Some may tend to take shots at him just because of his physique.
One thing stands for sure. The race between Wilson and Fields is really tight. The same applies to Lance and Jones.
