Mac Jones seemed like he was going to be the third pick in the 2021 NFL Draft for the last few weeks, but the 49ers picked Trey Lance out of North Dakota. That left Jones sliding down the board and constantly checking not one, but two phones, waiting to see if anyone was going to call and give him a heads up that he would be drafted. Every time the camera cut to Jones in his family room, he was looking at his phones.
As of 10pm and the 13th pick, his phones have remained silent. Eventually, Jones added a third phone to the mix. Since his hands were already full, someone else had to hold it and show him that no, he had not been picked.
Jones' weekly screen report is going to break a record on Sunday morning.
UPDATE: Mac Jones has been selected by the New England Patriots with the 15th pick.
