Patriots ‘Excessive On’ Second-Tier QB Prospect

The Patriots appear to solely have a pair of choices with the No. 3 decide within the 2024 NFL Draft, it’s only a matter of which one they really feel most comfy with.

New England will both take a quarterback or commerce again.

It’s the worst time of yr to take experiences at face worth, however we’ve gotten a fairly good sense of that over the previous couple of months. Jayden Daniels and/or Drake Maye will likely be out there by the point the Patriots are on the clock, and there reportedly is consolation across the constructing in drafting both one. New England might shift, although, electing to build up picks and goal somebody later within the first spherical like Michigan’s J.J. McCarthy — that appears to be what Robert Kraft would like, anyway.

Eliot Wolf and Jerod Mayo, who in the end will mix to make the ultimate determination, are maintaining their choices open, although. ESPN’s Dan Graziano revealed as a lot Wednesday, when he floated one other title that could possibly be of curiosity to the Patriots.

“Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. was among the many quarterbacks with whom the Patriots visited within the pre-draft course of, and folks I’ve spoken to say that go to was to assemble info on the lefty quarterback in case they determined to commerce down,” Graziano relayed. “I imagine they’re excessive on him, although I don’t suppose he’s a consideration in the event that they keep at No. 3.”

You wouldn’t have identified that a lot a number of weeks in the past, however as is usually the case in April, reported “curiosity” appears to pop up out of nowhere.

The Patriots did host Penix on a pre-draft go to at Gillette Stadium, however that got here after their solely prior contact with him got here within the type of sending one high-level scout to his professional day. It was by no means reported they’d met with him on the Senior Bowl or NFL Scouting Mix. It’s extremely unlikely that New England would wait so lengthy to indicate curiosity in a quarterback, however crazier issues have occurred.

If there’s a commerce made at No. 3 on Thursday, maybe Penix is the man New England will shift its focus towards.
