One story about Mac Jones tells you everything you need to know about the quarterback’s mentality.

According to Trey Wingo, Jones once talked trash straight to Nick Saban’s face while he was the scout team quarterback. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Jones was lighting up the first team defense in practice when the seven-time national champion coach told him to knock it off. Jones’ response? He apparently told Saban, “Tell your defense to stop it.”

This story more or less sums up everything we’ve heard about Jones. The guy’s competitiveness is supposedly at a super high level, and it would need to be if this story is true.

Nick Saban is the most feared man in all of college football. He wins national titles and runs his program like a dictator.

He’s the unquestioned king in the SEC.

So, for any player to talk back to him, they’d have to be crazy or insanely competitive. Judging from what we saw out of Jones in 2020, I’m going to go ahead and guess it’s the latter.

I can’t wait to find out where Jones lands in the NFL. He might not be the most athletic quarterback out there, but he’s a great leader and proven winner.

No matter where he lands, one team is getting a hell of a player with a great fire in his soul.
