    Mac Jones Is Our QB1

    This may be a little premature but it's PFF's call not mine. Those of us who beat the drums for Mac Jones pre-draft are to be congratulated for seeing through the arguments against him. The talent and coaching at Bama made it tough but Mac made the throws on his own. I'm pretty sure we got...
