FOXBORO (WPRI) — The Patriots finished their first block of Training Camp on Saturday as the defense was dominant once again in the 11-on-11 period. The play of the day came towards the end of practice when Kyle Dugger intercepted Mac Jones, and the defense as a whole feels confident.

“We just came out firing on all cylinders and the defense came out with juice,” said rookie cornerback Jack Jones. “After the defense made a play we just fed off of that.”

Jones has learned from his transition from college ball to the pros.

“I definitely see some strides, gained a couple pounds so that’s good,” said Jones with a smile. “Keep going in that direction hoping to add on a couple more pounds in the next couple weeks and just keep adding on.”

The defense continues to find new strengths every practice.

“We’re all versatile, we can all play in whatever spot,” said safety Joshuah Bledsoe. “Kind of make it hard on the quarterback. Line up in one position one time and come out in another set come by and we switched it up. We’re still doing the same thing, but people are in different spots.”

On the offensive side, Mac Jones coming off his rookie year, but showing shades of a veteran teaching rookie quarterback Bailey Zappe the tricks of the trade.

“It’s been great, with him, Hoyer, really everyone here with the Patriots they’ve welcomed me with open arms,” said Zappe. “I’ve been able to ask questions when I need to get answers out of certain things. Everybody’s been great, helping me wise with questions, answers everything.”

The Patriots have Sunday off before starting their second period of camp on Monday, as the pads come on.
