I feel pretty much the same way. Jones throws an high amount of screen and short passes and took advantage of the WR talent at his disposal. You can see this in the heat map of Jones' pass distribution:I agree with what you said but there are still things uncertain that can be concerning:
- Bama's offense play design and play calling was really good. He threw a lot of swings and screens who did result in td, a lot of YAC and Slants. That won't translate
- O-Line pass protection was really good, he usually had a lot of time and at some point his wr are open with time. He won't have this time at the next Level. My question is here how fast can he go trougj his reads and makes his decision. Is he able to throw the ball away or holds on to long. Idk about that, but I value this
That aren't the biggest things but still sth to look at. I can honestly see carolina take a shot at Jones cause they liked him at Senior bowl and admitted they lost a lot of close games so they are just a better qb play away from 8/9 wins. He might be gone by 15
I think Sarkisian used Tua and Mac Jones perfectly for the offense at Alabama designed around their skillset which showed in the their stats being similar. Jones' arm strength is similar to Tua's who struggled with tight window throws/outside the hashes in Miami's offense this year while not possessing the mobility that Tua has.
The tight window throws and lack of mobility is also a couple of reasons why Jones is graded lower than Burrow despite similar stats in college.
