The Patriots naturally struggled to replace Tom brady in 2020. When the team re-signed Cam Newton Earlier this offseason, there was a lot of speculation that the team might still turn to the draft (or the exchange market) to find its future QB. There were even rumors that New England would climb the recruiting chart looking for the caller. In the end, one of the top five quarterbacks fell into his lap without requiring any movement.
Jones naturally lands in a great spot, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the Alabama product is a bit disappointed in his slide down the board. Jones wasn’t expected to jump Trevor lawrence or Zach Wilson, but the 49ers were rumored to be considering Jones from the No. 3 pick. In the end, San Francisco opted for Trey lance, and Jones also jumped for Justin fields, who went to the Bears at No. 11.
Although Jones was the least mobile of this year’s top quarterback prospects, he led another dominant Alabama team to an undefeated season and a national championship.

While the Patriots never had a reason to select a first-round quarterback with Brady in the center, it will now be fascinating to see how Belichick deals with such a high-profile prospect.
