The New England Patriots are stars of another mock draft. NFL experts have made several comments about head coach Bill Belichick and his team. The team has Jarrett Stidham and Cam Newton on the roster. Will the head coach go after another quarterback? There are so many great options on the market. This year’s draft has a lot of amazing quarterbacks. Mac Jones, Justin Fields, Trevor Lawrence… Belichick has to play smart. Well, he always does that.
There’s another great option for the team. It may be the perfect scenario for the Patriots.
Patriots get top prospect in the mock draft
North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance is one of the best quarterback prospects on the market. The Patriots enter the 2021 NFL Draft with the No.15 overall. Lance fell to the No.15 overall in this mock draft and things got really hot.
Mike Giardi from NFL Media covers the organization and he made his choice in the made-for-TV simulation.
“We’re taking the athletic kid with a big brain. We’re taking Trey Lance to run this franchise for the next decade or so,” Giardi said during his appearance on the NFL Network show.
NFL Draft expert Daniel jeremiah has already said he could see Lance with well with Belichick’s team. He doubled down and approved the pick.
Will the Patriots get their future quarterback in this draft? Belichick has to act fast and trade up and down to get the players he needs. Well, we can’t really say much at this point. We will have to wait until the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft to learn more. The Patriots have covered almost ever spot in free agency and they have the players they need to win more games and make the playoffs.
The Patriots missed the playoffs in 2020, but Belichick won’t go through the same again. He will probably change the approach and the winning formula. Newton will probably lead the way to the Patriots and he will work with a talented group of players.
