Number Two: Mac Jones

Mac Jones is a quarterback who recently wrapped up his collegiate career for Alabama and helped them win yet another National Championship.

Jones, 22, was patient in his approach to stardom as he had to sit behind both Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa before he became the starter. Jones has a gritty, competitive nature about him that could make him a great fit in New Orleans.

It’s unlikely that Jones will fall to the Saints at pick number 28 in the 2021 NFL Draft, but if the Saints like what they see on film they could certainly look to trade up and snag the crafty quarterback.

Jones may be the second-best pure passer in the 2021 NFL Draft behind Trevor Lawrence due to his incredible accuracy and arm strength. Jones, in a three-year college career, completed a staggering 74.3 percent of his passes tossed 6,126 yards, and had a touchdown to interception ratio of 56:7.

Jones could very well be the next great signal-caller to come out of Alabama.

Jones could be a great option for the Saints simply because he’s a winner. The Saints need to bring in a guy who will keep them in a position to win football games, and no player may do a better job of that than Mac Jones.
