After a phenomenal season with the undefeated Alabama Crimson Tide, quarterback Mac Jones is one of the most intriguing prospects at his position. His performance at the Senior Bowl helped his draft stock rise even more, and now Jones could go within the first 15 picks.

In fact, ESPN insider Mike Tannenbaum has a bold prediction on Jones' possible draft position.

Tannenbaum says that Jones' floor is the No. 8 overall pick (owned by the Carolina Panthers). The fact that he's risen to a potential top-10 pick is already impressive, but the ESPN insider seems to suggest that there's still room for the Tide QB to rise come April.

With the Panthers searching for their next franchise QB, it's no surprise to see them mentioned as a possible landing spot. However, three other teams have shown interest in Jones as well, with the Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots all being linked to the quarterback at the Senior Bowl.

It's no secret that several franchises around the league are desperate to find their next starting QB, meaning high draft picks have even more value this year. As Jones' stock continues to skyrocket, teams may have to pay a premium for the chance to select him.
