With Tom Brady under center, the Patriots don't necessarily need to draft a quarterback.

Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran examined some possible options if they decide to go that route.

 

Dare to Dream

Blake Bortles - University of Central Florida

6'5", 232lbs

22-5 in 27 games as a starter. 2013 AAC Offensive Player of the Year

"Big, strong-armed kid." said Curran, "Has the size, has the arm, has the chin. We'll see how he fares overall though."

 

 Hold the Line 

Teddy Bridgewater - Louisville

6'2", 214lbs

Career: 9,817 passing yards, 72 touchdowns, 24 interceptions

"He's tough, he's a terrific leader by example, very accurate." says Curran, "He had a horrific Pro Day, which has caused his stock to drop."

or 

Jimmy Garoppolo - Eastern Illinois

6'2", 226lbs

2013 Walter Payton Award winner

 

Bargain Bin

A.J. McCarron - Alabama

6'3", 220lbs

2-time National Champion, 36-4 in 40 games as a starter

"McCarron has been telling people he expects to go in the first round." explained Curran, "A.J., When you come up in the second or third round and the Patriots take you to be Brady's understudy, be happy."
