Alabama’s Mac Jones shares first impression of Patriots after “good conversation”

Mac Jones shares the first impression of the Pats from the Senior Bowl interview originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Bill Belichick did not make the trip to the Senior Bowl this year, but others New England Patriots staff in Mobile, Ala., work hard for him.

Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, a potential option for New England in the NFL Draft 2021, said he had a productive interview with the Patriots on Wednesday.

“I sat down at their table and we just had a good conversation,” Jones told reporters Thursday Mass Lives Chris Mason. “They got to know me really well. I really liked their table (at the Senior Bowl).”

“It’s pretty fun to see how different tables are – they act a little differently, but the Patriots were really cool and asked some really good questions.”

There has been a lot of buzz around the Patriots and Jones – ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. had New England takes Jones 15th overall in his latest mock draft – and we now know that the team has at least some interest in the 22-year-old quarterback.

Jones posted ridiculous numbers for Crimson Tide last season, completing 77.4% of his 4,500-yard passes with 41 touchdown passes and four interceptions as he led Alabama to a national championship.

Jones, however, played in a charged offense, and some believe he will be no more than a quality game manager in the NFL after taking advantage of an elite wide receiver core and a dominant offensive line in Tuscaloosa. Him too tweaked his ankle in Thursday’s Senior Bowl practice, although the injury does not appear serious and did not prevent Jones from having a productive training week, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

The 6-foot-3, 214-pound QB will likely be the fifth or sixth caller to be taken in this year’s draft behind Trevor Lawrence, Zac Wilson, Justin Fields, Trey Lance and Kyle Trask, all of whom could be included in the top 10 or 15 valen.

If the Patriots decide to address their quarterback needs via the draft, Jones could be their guy. If not, veteran arms like Matthew Stafford will be in their sight this low season.
