June Jones jumps on the Mac Jones train


Recommended Posts

Once people watch film they are seeing what others have said. Jones won't go number 1 but after starting just 1 year in college his command of the position is far beyond what you would expect. His ceiling is higher than folks give him credit.

The guy threw to wide as open guys, with all the time in the world.  Never shows any escapable or ways to elude pressure.

he also didn’t have zip to throw through tight windows.

 

i get people say, look he has a cannon, he can throw it 50 yards etc etc.  so could Will Grier.  But to have the constant zip and pro arm, he doesn’t have.

him being projected in the top 20 is insane 

 

 

literally, the clip from the senior owl everyone is rerunning when talking about how good he is.  It’s a 15 yard  dump off where the WRs cleared out where no one was within 15 yards from the pass catcher and Mac simply led him.  I could do that.

Come on man he has plenty of zip on the midrange.  Someone posted a breakdown earlier today and it showed.  The problem is his deep ball

I can hack a few clips of Will Grier at West Virginia doing the Same thing

Can you hack a National Championship winning season together?

If I had 4 of the top 5 WRs to come out of the draft in 2 years, the top OL,RB and Defense, sure

 

wins don’t mean crap for scouting a QB

 

see Ken Dorsey, Chris Weinke, and Bama QBs prior to Jalen Hurts

Take him off Alabama and he's prepping for an insurance job right now.

This is something I keep trying to explain to the Jones fans.

He didn't actually show very many NFL traits.  He was the beneficiary of a completely loaded Alabama roster.  He in fact lost the only game he played in decided by less than two scores.  I do not count the Florida game this year since it was two scores until the garbage time TD.

I would argue that you could put any of the top 10 college QB's in the draft on that Alabama team and come up with the exact same or better results.

Watch the tape. Most of his good throws are 1/3 field throws.

So if in the middle of the field between the hashes. 

If on the hash then towards the boundary.

When he makes throws to the field he struggles with placement and timing. 

It's not hard to defend that in the NFL. 

Take away the immediate 3rd and put guys on an island on the outside.
