    Skip Bayless is not enamored with Mac Jones, it appears.
    The New England Patriots took the Alabama product with the 15th overall pick in the NFL Draft on Thursday. A more traditional, pocket-passer type , the pick was lauded by many for fitting the Patriots' Tom Brady-centered system of years past.

    Belichick and the Pats on Thursday selected Alabama quarterback Mac Jones with the 15th overall pick in the NFL Draft. Some mock drafts had Jones falling to the Patriots, while others had New England needing to trade up if it wanted him.
    But, alas, he was there when the Patriots went on the clock, and they got their guy.
    Belichick was asked if he thought the Patriots might need to trade up to get Jones, as some mock drafts pegged him to go as high as third overall.
