Mac Jones is outshining his 2021 draft class QB brethren as their careers hit the two game mark. Yes Jones is kept on a tight leash as the Patriots' quarterback, completing just 6.8 yards/attempt - which ranks in the lower third of starters. He's only thrown one TD pass in two games, but he's completed a crazy 73.9% of his throws - absolutely remarkable for a rookie as both Trevor Lawrence (50%) and Zach Wilson (55.7%) struggle as would be expected of rooks.

Jones has completed just 21 of his 51 completed to his WR group, with 15 each to the TEs and RBs.

Nelson Agholor represents the team's "deep threat" with at 11.9 yards per completion - the other WRs Bourne and Meyers are both under 10 ypc.

Yes we know that Jones is currently operating under restrictions, and we know that lack of said deep threat constantly confounded Tom Brady while in New England. Further, the few times they looked to address WR deficiencies in the draft have flopped (Betthel Johnson 2002, Chad Jackson 2006, Taylor Price 2010, N'Keal Harry 2019). Really you need to go back to 2002 and Deion Branch to find a true WR success.

So it is with some trepidation that we slot the Patriots with Garrett Wilson here, it's more Bill Belichick-like to just draft whatever defensive player presents the greatest value. In this mock the versatile Adam Anderson fits that description.

PATRIOTS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
