Quarterback Mac Jones participated in Alabama’s second Pro Day leading up to the 2021 NFL Draft. He took place in the school’s first Pro Day as well, including a throwing session for the league’s teams in attendance.

The 22-year-old quarterback prospect led the Alabama Crimson Tide to a national title this year in a 52-24 victory over Ohio State. He finished the 2020 season leading the FBS in passing yards, completing his undefeated season with 41 touchdowns and four interceptions. Among FBS quarterbacks with at least 200 dropbacks in 2020, Jones ranked first in yards per pass attempt (11.1), NFL passer rating (141.6) and finished as PFF’s most highly graded passer.

Jones has been the subject of plenty of NFL chatter through the final week of March, after the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 overall pick. GM John Lynch and HC Kyle Shanahan were in attendance, along with Patriots HC Bill Belichick, who all looked on as he overthrew his receiver on several pass attempts during his throwing session.

He recovered eventually, however, as his camp moved into the red zone to work, where he capped off his session catching a touchdown from RB Najee Harris.
