In his lone season as a starter for the Alabama Crimson Tide, Mac Jones was named a team captain and led the program to a national championship win. So, it should come as no surprise to the New England Patriots that they have something special in Jones.

After a rookie campaign that landed Jones a Pro Bowl appearance, he is looking to enter his second season and take his game to the next level. Jones has been recognized for spending his entire offseason committed to the strength and conditioning program, as well as following the Patriots’ nutritional plan.

NFL Network analyst, Mike Giardi, discussed Jones and what improvements he expects from him in year two. Giardi offered high praise, saying, “He has taken ownership of not only the offense but really of the team. As someone in the organization told me, he’s really got a maturity beyond his years.”

Jones still has plenty of room for growth, but the Patriots seem to love the path he’s on. Check out the full conversation below.
