The 2021 Senior Bowl added Alabama QB Mac Jones to its roster Tuesday morning in a development that should pique the interest of Bears fans.
Chicago is embarking on a key quarterback-led offseason, so the more opportunities the Bears have to get a close look at this year’s best draft prospects, the better.

Even with the Panthers and Dolphins coaching this year’s Senior Bowl, the Bears will be getting a close look at Jones during rehearsal week starting January 25. They will also have the opportunity to meet him, something that is even more critical now that NFL Combine 2021 has been canceled.
Jones has questions in his assessment that scouting in person will help clear up. His arm strength, for example, isn’t elite but is it good enough? Watching the reps of the exercises live will help Bears scouts and front-office staff make that call.
Jones completed more than 77% of his passes for 4,500 yards, 41 touchdowns and just four interceptions in 2020, a season that culminated in a national championship for Alabama. It’s true that Jones was targeting a cast of skill players around the world, but so are many of the top quarterback prospects that preceded him.
This is why Senior Bowl practices will be so important. Seeing Jones throw at players who are a tick under the Alabama guys is informative, if not crucial, of his final draft stash, which is currently anywhere from the middle of Round 1 to the early part of Round 2.
The Bears hold the twentieth overall selection, which could be right in Jones’s draft slot if he were to perform well in Mobile.
