Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

-Jones arrived at Alabama the same year as Tua Tagovailoa (2017). He was redshirted and didn’t see a start until Tua went down during the 2019 season.

-Making 4 starts that year (against Arkansas, Western Carolina, Auburn and Michigan), Jones completed 70 of 98 passes (71.4%) for 1,172 yards and 13 TDs (2 INTs).

-He truly broke out last season with 4,500 yards and 41 TDs. He recorded a nation-best 84.2% completion rate. Accuracy to all areas of the field was a huge plus on film.

-Jones brings very limited rushing potential. And it’s clear that his passing production was boosted by an all-star O-line and supporting cast that included DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle.

-Jones fell to the Patriots 15th overall. He’ll enter the summer in a battle with Cam Newton for the starting job.

-Newton struggled as a passer, showing limited arm strength and a conservative approach. He managed only 177 passing yards per game; .53 TDs per game.

-HC Bill Belichick has announced that Newton will enter training camp as the starter. Jones will have a chance to unseat him, though.

-Whoever wins the job figures to pilot a low-volume pass offense, albeit one with much-improved pass catchers. Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne all arrived in free agency.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We expect Jones to start at some point this season. But his total number of games played is a mystery, as Cam Newton will likely get the first crack at the starting job.

With almost zero rushing upside and unexciting pass volume, Jones will start his career as a longshot for fantasy value.

After watching spring practices, The Boston Globe's Ben Volin believes Patriots QB Mac Jones still has "a long way to go" to beat out QB Cam Newton for the starting job. Even with Newton sidelined the past week with his hand injury, Jones worked behind QBs Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer. “There’s a lot going on in my brain,” Jones admitted. “You’re trying to see everything; sometimes you see too much or whatever, and then you see nothing. I have to figure out in this offense how I can break down the plays, what’s my job, what I have to do on this specific play and slot the plays individually. I did that obviously good in college or whatever, but this is the pros and I have to figure out how to do it here. So that’s what I’m going to do.” We'll see how much ground Jones can make up in training camp and preseason action, but bet on Newton being under center for New England come Week 1.

The Patriots sat at #15 and landed Alabama QB Mac Jones. A 1-year starter following the departure of Tua Tagovailoa, Jones went off for 4,500-41-4 last fall. His 84.2% adjusted completion rate led the nation. While Jones played with top-tier talent (Devonta Smith, Jaylen Waddle, Najee Harris), his accuracy was on point at all levels of the field. Per Pro Football Focus, Jones even led the nation in deep yards (1,355). The 6’3, 217-pounder brings below average athleticism, so don’t expect much rushing production in the pros. But his profile might have him as the 2nd most pro-ready passer in this draft, behind only Trevor Lawrence. Jones will battle QB Cam Newton for the starting job this summer. Our early money is on Jones being under center come Week 1.
