Not necessarily opposed to the Saints making this pick. Just starting to doubt he makes it to 28. Once the run on QBs starts, someone will make the move.

Pass on Mac Jones especially at #28.

Jabril Cox - LB (notice I featured his tape from his previous college before transferring to LSU ). Maybe we'll give him a legitimate look in the draft. Definitely a player I like if he falls to round #2.

If I'm a GM/scout potentially picking a QB in the first, I have to ask "what can you bring to an offense that no one else can?" Take the top QB's in our new NFL Mahommes, Josh Allen, Russ Wilson, Desean Watson, Justin Hebert, Burrow (pre injury), Kyler Murray. There is a pattern here. Guys with strong arms, elusive and can create when things break down. Game changers. I'll take a small bit of accuracy away if I can find a guy who can do what no other player on the planet can do at the position.

Mac could become a decent QB in the NFL but I'm not betting the farm on it. Those clean pockets days of playing at Bama are gone once he transitions to the NFL.

At pick #28, I look for "special" if we are selecting a QB in the first. An elite, franchise player and not just a serviceable guy.

That's just me.

Major, have you watched much of QB Trey Lance? He fits that description to a T.
