Top NFL prospect and former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones has come under fire just ahead of the 2021 draft over an anti-Obama costume he reportedly wore when he was a 14-year-old boy. The 22-year-old Alabama grad who availed the Crimson Tide win two championships – one as a reserve quarterback and one as a starter — is widely considered a top-five pick for the NFL. Jones threw for 4,500 yards and 41 touchdowns. He led Alabama to an impeccable 13-0 record for the school’s 16th National Championship.
Jones was born in 1998 in Jacksonville, “Florida,” where he received Pop Warner Scholar apperception afore playing for his Florida high school. With all that, Jones is optically discerned as a top NFL cull.
But reprehenders are blasting him after photos surfaced allegedly exhibiting him dressed as “Nobama,” including an Obama mask and dreadlocks, reportedly worn when he was a teen.
Many Twitter users went on the attack:

it is HUGELY telling that Mac Jones emanates from a racist family (or is a racist himself) and has 2 DUIs and he's being touted as a "leader" while Justin Fields gets queried for his "passion for football"

I've visually perceived the photo from 2012 that Mac Jones' sister tweeted. Don't ken for sure that's Mac in the costume.
It's not the only thing Mac has to expound to future NFL employers. — Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) April 15, 2021
Jones is not the first college player who has gotten in trouble over his anterior convivial media posts or things he did as a teenager.

In 2019, top NFL pick Nick Bosa was coerced to promise to keep his political conceptions to himself after taking reproval from liberal sports media over his traditional conservative political opinions.
The Ohio State defensive end once had several convivial media posts accolading President Trump, slamming the “NFL’s” national anthem protests, and reproving former NFL player Colin Kaepernick for his anti-American protests and opinions. Bosa commenced systematically effacing his political posts on convivial media in preparation for jumping into the NFL draft, but it was too tardy for them to have gone unnoticed.
Young players in other sports have withal had to apologize for old gregarious media posts. For instance, ahead of the 2018 All-Star Game, MLB pitcher Josh Hader apologized for “racist” tweets he posted when he was only 17.
