After yet another disappointing season in the post-Tom Brady era, the New England Patriots headed into the NFL offseason with plans to make some drastic changes and that’s what has happened for the storied franchise.

The Patriots’ first move was parting ways with legendary head coach Bill Belichick, who helped the team win six Super Bowl titles and created a culture of winning in New England.

After 24 years, longtime team owner Robert Kraft felt it was finally time to move on from Belichick, and that he did with Jerod Mayo taking over as the leader on the sideline.

Then, the team had to address the quarterback position, which it did by trading Mac Jones to the Jacksonville Jaguars and signing veteran journeyman Jacoby Brissett.

However, Brissett is obviously not the long-term option for the Patriots under center, with the team having the No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft, but it is not set in stone that the team will take a quarterback, even though that seems to be what Kraft wants, according to Doug Kyed of the Boston Herald.

“We’re going to be open to whatever can come our way,” Kraft said. “I’ll let the team make the decision what they think is best. One way or another, I’d like to see us get a top-rate quarterback.”

As of right now, all signs seem to be pointing to the Patriots taking either Drake Maye or Jayden Daniels with the No. 3 overall pick in the draft, depending on which one of the two will be available once New England is on the clock.

The Chicago Bears will almost certainly take Caleb Williams at No. 1, leaving some uncertainty at the quarterback position beyond that in the draft.
