"You don't draft a quarterback in the second round if you think his ceiling is just a backup." - Chris Gasper

Jimmy Garoppolo is now a member of New England Patriots.

What is expected of the 22-year-old?

Chris Gasper and Dan Shaughnessy joined Arbella Early Edition to discuss the future of Garoppolo.

"You don't draft a quarterback in the second round if you think his ceiling is just a backup." said Gasper, "I don't know what he is, but they have drafted him to be a franchise quarterback."

"Brady and Belichick are tied together." said Gasper, "If he can win without Brady, if he can find the next quarterback, that enhances [Belichick's] legacy."

Gary Tanguay reminded everyone that Brady was a virtual unknown before joining the Patriots as well.

"The reality is, Brady was not a franchise quarterback until Belichick got ahold of him with Charlie Weis… he wasn't that guy when they drafted him."
