Yes he was very good for Alabama and fits the patriots system well.Thoughts mate? Happy with that?
He has a very good arm if you give him time in the pocket, he is a pocket passer full stop. The knock was really that he’s not dual threat and Alabama are so good anyone could hit a target type of thing.
I think normally you’d be happy to grab him late first but obviously we rated him higher than the other options and reasoned we wouldn’t get another chance at Jones in the second round. I’m not sold on running quarterbacks, once I used to argue with my dad about how a Michael Vick was the future and he would nether have it. Now decades later I’ve come around to his way of thinking, it’s handy being able to scramble but you need to be able to stand in the pocket see and hit targets.
Running and smashing into lineman just gets you cam Newton, Andrew luck smashed up and an early retirement. People seem to forget Russell Wilson’s arm and Patrick mahomes has a fantastic arm and will eventually learn to stay in the pocket and not get knocked around.
Plenty of talent left for your guys it just depends how you rate them.
