The New England Patriots pick Mac Jones No. 15 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft on Thursday night.
Patriots Pick Mac Jones No. 15 Overall In 2021 NFL Draft
When Tom Brady left New England for Tampa, the Patriots fell apart. Though they were more than just a quarterback away from getting back to their winning ways, Mac Jones will have them headed in the right direction. Just like Brady, and opposite of current starter Cam Newton, Jones is a traditional pocket passer. What Jones lacks in athleticism, he makes up for with brains and accuracy. Not only does he know how to throw the ball, he knows exactly where to place it.
Unfortunately, the Patriots currently lack the players to catch it. Julian Edelman was their best receiver, and now that he’s retired, New England will need to revisit the position later in the draft.
Newton being rostered for one more season will allow Jones the time he’ll need to adjust to the pros.
Mac Jones 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook
Jones could be riding the pine in 2021, as Bill Belichick doesn’t seem like the type of coach to throw a rookie quarterback to the fire. If you’re hoping for a fantasy football quarterback to help you win games in 2021, it’s probably not Jones. His outlook for 2021 is mostly cloudy.
Mac Jones Dynasty Fantasy Football Outlook
Jones has the potential to be the NFL’s next Matt Ryan down the road. Ryan has done plenty of fantasy football players well over the years, and Jones could easily do the same for dynasty players. He could fit as a top-10 pick in superflex dynasty fantasy football rookie drafts, though he’s probably best left for Round 2 in 1-QB setups.

Jones likely will not get much playing time in his first NFL season unless Newton suffers an injury. While that’s not a terrible guess as to what will happen, Jones’ supporting cast and generally uninspiring short-term situation makes this a no-go.
