Mac Jones has quickly risen up draft boards since the end of the college football season, and scouting reports like the one NFL legend Joe Namath gave him on Monday will only solidify the quarterback’s stock.
Namath was asked during an appearance on NFL Network if he could make the argument that Mac Jones deserves consideration as the No. 2 overall pick, which belongs to the New York Jets. Namath responded by comparing Jones to Tom Brady.
Namath added that many NFL teams now prefer quarterbacks who can run, but he said “what’s between the ears” is more important. He sees some Brady-like tendencies in that department for Jones as well.
