The New England Patriots might not be all that committed to Mac Jones as they’re said to have “real interest” in a top quarterback prospect.
While everything suggests Jones will be the Pats’ starting QB for the foreseeable future, they did host Will Levis as part of a top-30 visit last week. Levis is currently favored to be the No. 2 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and could possibly go first overall if certain speculation is to be believed.
According to NFL reporter Mike Giardi, the team has a serious interest in the former Penn State and Kentucky signal-caller. Giardi reports that New England isn’t wholly sold on Levis but there are folks, presumably, in the front office who want the QB in their colors.
