The New England Patriots entered training camp with a number of question marks throughout its team, but the quarterback position appears to not be one of them.

After spending a first-round pick on him last season Mac Jones has been the answer the Patriots have looked for after the departure of Tom Brady. Although Jones is far from what Brady is, he has continued to show progress throughout the team’s minicamp despite the turnover on the offensive coaching staff.

Today there were several reports of Jones turning in an impressive outing on the field where the former Alabama quarterback nearly had a perfect competition percentage during team drills.

Along with his impressive play through practice, Jones is also said to be in the best shape of his life and has been showered with praise by his teammate which continued on Tuesday with running back Damien Harris.

“I just feel very fortunate to share the field with Mac,” Harris said according to The Providence Journal. “He’s an incredibly hard worker. That’s what I appreciate about him the most – just coming out here, seeing the way that he leads, the way that he works his butt off to be the best, to be his best in order to help all of us be our best. He does a great job every day just coming out with that mentality, working hard, doing his job and that’s the mentality we’ve all got to have. We all have to embody that.”

One of Jones’ passes went to tight end Tre Nixon for 40-yards which is an area of his game he’s has made an emphasis to improve upon.

“Amazing,” said Nixon about the pass from Jones. “You can’t complain. He put it right on the money…. He’s a great player… As you can tell on the field watching him, (he’s) making tremendous strides for sure.”

Jones reportedly completed 14-of-14 passes during the team’s 7-on-7 period and later completed 11-of-12 passes during the 11-on-11 period.
