NFL Coach: Mac Jones 'Most Advanced' QB in the Draft; Trevor Lawrence 'The Best'

An anonymous NFL quarterbacks coach said Wednesday that Clemson's Trevor Lawrence is the "best" signal-caller in the 2021 NFL draft, but they also noted they would take Alabama's Mac Jones if they had to win "right now."

The coach explained to Bruce Feldman of The Athletic why Jones is the "most advanced" QB in the star-studded 2021 class:

"In my mind, if I had to win right now, this year, he's the most advanced quarterback of any of them. I think Trevor's the best. I'm cosigning on him, but his system adjustment will be much bigger than Mac.
