New England Patriots continues in his search for the replacement of Tom brady, after the experiment with Cam Newton failed. The little confidence in the marshal has been in evidence this Thursday in the DraftAs for the first time in his glorious career, Bill Belichick recruits a quarterback in the first round. This is the Alabama Crimson Tide prospect, Mac Jones.
After 20 years with Tom brady at the head of New England Patriots, it seemed unimaginable that the franchise would spend its first-round pick of the Draft in a quarterback. However, after leaving for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Foxborough’s men have struggled to fill that void. In the last Free Agency, they signed Cam Newton, who did not live up to expectations.
New England Patriots drafts Mac Jones
Many expected the ‘Pats’ to select a quarterback in this Draft, and even the Justin Fields option rang out strongly. However, those of Gillette Stadium could not climb in the order of positions, having to settle for the 15th pick. Fields’ option vanished in recent days, and Belichick put on his list to Mac Jones.
It seemed that only the San Francisco 49ers could snatch Mac Jones, and the Californians ended up selecting Trey Lance, which left a perfect setting for the Patriots. In this way, they were left with one of the most promising quarterbacks of the college litter, waiting to have found the new Tom Brady.
In 2020, Mac Jones he surpassed 400 yards through the air in 4 of 10 games this season, for a new college record. The quarterback took the Davey O’Brien, Johnny Unitas Golden Arm and Manning awards for best passer in the nation. He is expected to fight head-to-head for the starting job at New England Patriots against Newton, with great possibilities of sending him to the bench.
