As far as quarterbacks in the 2014 draft class are concerned, one thing is becoming abundantly clear: There is quantity there.
"Absolutely," Carr told NFL Network on Tuesday. "I say that with respect to all those other guys because they're great competitors and all those good things. Of course it's not easy for me to answer a question like that, but I absolutely think so. There's no doubt in my mind. We can turn the film on, sit down and watch it, and we'll talk about it and I'll convince you."
"I sure hope so," he said. "My wife sure hopes so, my son. I think so. I really do. From what I've heard from general managers, from what I've heard from coaches, and what they're telling me, I do. Whichever way it works out, it works out. Hopefully from what they've been saying, it'll work out that way."
The Patriots appear to be in the market for a quarterback based on some of their pre-draft work. They've hosted Manziel and Bridgewater on visits. They've also met with Bortles, LSU's Zach Mettenberger, BC's Chase Rettig and Alabama's AJ McCarron, according to reports.
