Mac Jones, Landon Dickerson share candid thoughts on their friendship, future of Crimson Tide
Alabama’s Mac Jones and Landon Dickerson are two of the more intriguing prospects entering the NFL Draft this spring. Jones because he’s been rumored to be taken as high as No. 3 to the San Francisco 49ers, and Dickerson because he’s coming off a serious knee injury at the end of last season.
They’re also close friends and they shared those thoughts with Paul Finebaum on the SEC Network on Thursday.
“Honestly, we’re just two very large, old-looking kids,” Dickerson said about their friendship. “That’s the best way I can describe it, we’re big kids. Locker room, going out to eat, my house, his apartment, whatever it is, we’re just like two little kids.”
“That’s pretty accurate, whether we’re playing football or not,” he said, “just have a good time together, make everything enjoyable, because there’s a lot of long days, but we try to just make them fun and that’s what makes us good leaders, good teammates, but also good players, all that stuff.”
Dickerson and Jones will also be at A-Day on Saturday as the Crimson Tide resume their annual spring tradition of having the captains, this time from 2020 and 2019, leave their cleats in the Walk of Fame at Denny Chimes.
“Really almost enjoy a spectator position for once,” Dickerson said.
Jones added, “Everyone’s going to say Alabama’s done or whatever. This is kind of the first step for them proving they’re a new team and as good as any team we’ve had. So I’m looking forward to it.”
Dickerson said he’s watched practices and the Alabama roster entering the season has the potential to be very good, “so I’m excited to see how this team develops.”
