The Patriots entered the 2021 NFL Draft with their fourth highest first-round pick (15th overall) under Bill Belichick. With that pick, they selected Alabama QB Mac Jones. After receiving his Draft call Thursday night, Jones visited Gillette Stadium the following Friday to meet Robert and Jonathan Kraft and be introduced as the Patriots 2021 first round pick. In usual tradition, Jones and Kraft’s posed for their Draft photo while holding up a number 1 Draft jersey.
The Hall, in continuing its annual tradition of displaying the first pick draft jersey, received the autographed Mac Jones No. 1 jersey and is now on display in The Hall. The Draft Day jerseys collection includes: Richard Seymour, Jerod Mayo, Devin McCourty, Nate Solder, Dont’a Hightower, Chandler Jones, Jamie Collins, Dominique Easley, Cyrus Jones, Malcolm Brown, Isaiah Wynn, Sony Michel, N’keal Harry, and Mac Jones.
Cyrus Jones and Jamie Collins were both 2nd round draft selections, their No. 1 draft jersey on display represents them being the Patriots first selection in their draft years.
The Hall’s Draft display will be up through May and, available for all Hall of fame guests to see. It also includes a sample Draft board rating card and the two draft selection cards from the 2020 virtual NFL Draft.
