Comments
Arm Strength/Power
6.50
He has adequate arm strength but it will not blow you away. He can throw the ball with velocity on short to intermediate routes.
Short Accuracy (1-10 yds)
8.00
He is very accurate in the short passing game often anticipating the throw and throwing with timing.
Imtermediate Accuracy (10-20 yds)
7.50
He is accurate and throws with very good accuracy. he is an anticipatory thrower and it allows him to avoid mistakes.
Long Accuracy (20+ yds)
6.50
He is accurate down the field but his lack of arm strength becomes evident as the ball often floats on him and to the receiver. He does not throw the ball with great velocity when going deep and relies rather on touch and accuracy to get the job done.
Pocket Presence
7.00
He is comfortable in the pocket but then again he was never pressured very much. He has a very quick release which often mitigates the pressure he gets.
Mobility
5.50
He is not the most nimble of feet and often prefers to stay in the pocket. He can get out of the pocket if he needs to but is not the most gifted runner. It's marginally functional athletiscm.
Vision
8.20
He has developed his vision through his time at Alabama and progresses through his reads efficiently. He has a quick release which he developed with progressing through his reads to become a more effective thrower.
Mechanics
7.50
There solid. He can use a little work on his drop back. He can get a little too high when he gets out of his stance but these are small tweaks he will learn along the way.
Durability
8.00
Mac Jones sustained an ankle injury in the Senior Bowl which forced him to miss the game but other than that I did not see any major injuries.
Leadership
5.00
I would have to watch him live and interact with him to get a better idea of this.
Game Management
7.00
He can manage a game well and he allows his playmakers to make a play. His quick release and his ball location and accuracy allow for a more productive game.
Decision-Making
8.50
He often makes the right reads and progresses through his reads very well. He has a quick release and was able to read the opposing defenses with efficiency.
Size
7.50
Its adequate size at 6'3 215.
Speed
5.20
He probably runs high 4.9s to low 5.0's
Play-Making Ability
5.50
This is not his strength and he prefers to progress through his reads and pick you apart little by little rather than hitting a big play.
Productivity
8.00
He had an outstanding season throwing for 4,500 yds 41 TD's and 4 INT's
Intangibles
5.50
He honestly does not have the highest ceiling but he may be an effective starter for a long time.
Character
5.00
I can not judge as I have not met him personally.
Consistency
8.00
He will take what the defense gives him and does not try to play outside of his game.
Strengths
Mac Jones is a highly accurate and anticipatory thrower who showcases high football IQ. He deciphers defenses and throws with a quick release and accuracy. He is accurate on all levels and he throws with good location to give his receivers a better chance to run after the catch.
Weaknesses
He does not possess the best arm or athleticism and that may limit his upside down the road. He played with a lot of talent and it's hard to see how he will project playing with an inferior team. Also has only 1 season of real production and his lack of experience may be problematic if a team intends to start him right away.
Overall Analysis
Mac Jones was very productive this season throwing for 4,500 yards with 41 TD'S to only 4 INT's. He is a QB who has a quick release and is very accurate. he possesses adequate arm strength and marginal athletism. There is also a concern that he has only had one full season of real big-time production. Can he succeed with marginal talent or will he become a potential backup QB? Only time will tell.
