Mac Jones and DeVante Parker are building strong connection. Mike Reiss from ESPN bets on one particular rookie. According to him, the rookie “will be one of the standout performance in training camp.”
“Rookie Jack Jones will be one of the standout performers in training camp, making a charge for a starting spot, as his sticky coverage and ball skills will show up with multiple interceptions. By the end of camp, no player will have more interceptions than Jones.”
