I'm far from an avid college football fan, in fact it might be generous to call me a casual fan, but I certainly have interest in The Patriot's draft as well as their off season moves. Concerning the draft I depend on info from folks here and in the media to try to gauge needs and talent. Most everything I've read or heard prior to and after the selection of Jones is that he's an incredibly smart quarterback and should pick up on the Patriots offense fairly quickly. It's going to be a huge plus if they don't have to change/tailor the offense toward his learning abilities. If this guy has the football smarts that he's advertised to have and is able to run the same/similar offense to what Brady was running, he'll be OK. There's going to be some sort of learning curve for sure and like you say the criticisms sound familiar. I'm looking forward to seeing how Jones progresses and am optimistic that the intelligence enhances the rest of his game.Everything I've read (and I'm no NFL scout) suggests this is a high-floor, high-ceiling guy, who is pretty much designed to fit into New England's mindset and offense. Even the criticisms of his abilities and limitations sound familiar.
