New England Patriots Vet David Andrews Praises QB Mac Jones’ Leadership

FOXBORO —All things considered; Mac Jones had a good rookie season.

Out of the five potential franchise quarterbacks to go in the first 15 picks of the 2021 NFL Draft, Jones was selected last at No. 15.

Did he blow the rest of the league out of the water with eye-dropping stats? Of course not, but Jones’ 67.56% completion rate was the second-best ever by a first-year quarterback, barely trailing Dak Prescott’s 67.76% mark from 2016.

Out of the crop of Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, and Justin Fields, Jones is the only rookie quarterback from this draft class to finish with a winning record. Jones finished with a 10-7 record and a trip to the playoffs, yet the other four rookie first-round picks combined to win just nine games.
