Get ready for another great review of Mac Jones.
The New England Patriots selected Jones with the 15th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. NFL experts new that head coach Bill Belichick would get a quarterback, but no one thought that he would draft Jones. It seems like Belichick made a smart choice. A lot of fans and experts praise Jones and his skills on the field.
Kevin Faulk is definitely one of them. He has watched Jones play, and yes, he loves the rookie.
The Patriots Hall of Famer and also LSU running back coach watched Jones close when he and his team destroyed the Tigers in a 55-17 win. Faulk visited Gillette Stadium and offered his view of Jones. According to him, the rookie is the Patriots’ quarterback of the future.
So, what did Faulk say?
“Very intelligent. Doesn’t make too many bad decisions,” he said, via ESPN’s Mike Reiss. “Understood what the offense was. Understood what he needed to do as the starting quarterback, and I think that will be the same way here. The situations are similar for him.”
Great review for Mac Jones
Belichick offered Cam Newton a one-year deal and we have at least one good reason to believe that he will start games in 2021. Faulk also talked about Newton’s chances of winning the quarterback competition in training camp. Let’s not forget that the Patriots have four quarterbacks on the roster. Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham will do their best in training camp.
“Very curious, because (Jones) can be very productive in this offense if he is who he is shown and proven to be in college — the one year he played. He hadn’t played much the previous years, but you could tell from last year that he paid attention.”
Jones signed his rookie contract with the team. He impressed players and coaches during team activities this summer. He was brilliant in organized team activities and Belichick likes his efforts.
Belichick will make the best decision for his team. Maybe he will give Newton a chance to lead the team before putting Jones under center.
