AJ McCarron Among Potential Patriots Quarterbacks In 2014 NFL Draft

The New England Patriots like to plan ahead, so their interest in selecting a quarterback in the 2014 NFL draft shouldn’t come as a major surprise. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be 37 years old when the 2014 season begins, and backup Ryan Mallett is entering a contract year. Mallett was supposed to be Brady’s successor, but he never fully developed and Brady’s still...

Time to Re-assess my Patriots mock draft

Those that follow my articles know I spend countless hours studying the Patriots personnel, and everything about their drafting process. The addition of the last pick in the 4th round of this year's draft as a compensatory pick was surprising.

Who are the X-Factors of the AFC East?

New England Patriots: Quarterback, Ryan Mallett Basically anyone on the New England Patriots, not named Tom Brady, could be an X-factor.

Granted, the sample size for Mallett isn’t that large, and...

Patriots expected to select quarterback ‘at some point’

Look for the Patriots to add a Quarterback

With only two quarterbacks on the roster, look for the Patriots to add one more, whether it be through free agency or the draft, before training camp starts. Most teams carry at least three quarterbacks into camp, if for no other reason than to get more practice time and drills in during the offseason. For the Patriots, the need of an extra arm also carries some more solid...

Patriots Could Only Get A Late-Round Pick For QB Ryan Mallett?

  Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston writes that the Patriots would be lucky to get “a late-round pick at best” for backup QB Ryan Mallett in a trade. According to Reiss, the “best-case scenario” for New England would be to keep Mallett as Tom Brady‘s backup and hope he steps up big during the postseason. This would likely increase Mallett’s value in 2015 when he will be an...
