The 2024 Draft

MJH this year and Arch Manning in a couple years. Rename the team to New England Colts.
 
From Jim Nagy via PFF podcast

OT Tyler Guyton has highest ceiling in draft, predicts you will see him rise in rankings. Gave credit to Alt plus Penn State player, but still real high on Guyton.

Oline Graham Barton , injured late in season , best position for him is center

Nagy is excited to see DL Marshawn Kneeland from W. Michigan, plays up and down the line.

Nagy was told by prior GM that Jacob Cowing from Arizona is DeSean Jackson.
 
Xavier Legette is DK Metcalf with a better route tree. This guy goes over the middle.
Speed to burn. Big and tough

I know there is some worry about why he was basically invisible until he was a senior..I've been seening him go end of the 1st top of the 2nd.

I also like watching Rattler on that play, looked right, came back to the middle, the throw was in front of the receiver in the second window, allowed Legette to catch and run.

Also, Navy thinks day three of the draft will be weak because guys that didn't like the rating they were hearing from the NFL were rewarded via NIL money from the schools.

It will take a while for draft to go back to normal due to the NIL money.
 
We can get Daniels if we want him. He won’t go 1 or 2. Do we pounce on a OT and then do a deal to get Daniels? Or do we take Daniel’s first and then go after a tackle? There’s a few good tackles in the draft. But again, no guarantees of success in the NFL. Peter Skorknoski out of Northwestern was taken 1st round in the draft last year by the titans and he has been awful this season. The titans have the worst O Line in football. Maybe that’s unfair on Skorkonski, he’s a rookie and maybe he’ll improve.
The traits that you hear about Daniel’s sounds a lot like Daniel Jones.
i.e He’s a skinnier faster version of Jones.
 
Mel Kiper Jr. on how the #Patriots should approach the quarterback position (via
@ESPN's First Draft pod):
"I would attack it with a rookie quarterback, and I think you have to help this rookie quarterback out. Mac Jones was dealt a bad hand. Let's face it. They didn't help Mac Jones. Mac Jones had-- they bring in different coordinators, you've got two, you've got guys who weren't even coordinators, you've got receivers that have no star power out there, anybody with elite skills, you don't have an offensive line. Mac Jones can't-- he can't win behind that. That's a no-win situation, okay?

Because of what he was surrounded by, so I feel bad for Mac. But moving forward: Drake Maye, Jayden Daniels. One of those two. And we're looking at Drake Maye and, I hate this part of this process because it seems like we're hating on Drake Maye... Drake Maye was really really good in 2022, and he had Josh Downs who had a ton more catches than the No. 2 receiver at North Carolina... this year new coordinator, no Josh Downs or [Antoine] Green, no Tez Walker until four-- fifth game in, and his numbers dropped. And there were some games, the Virginia, NC State game-- the bottom line is I said during the course of this week, he was [like] a pitcher who just didn't have his best stuff...Drake had things around him that weren't ideal this year, so you could excuse away maybe some of those things that were going on. But in some cases, there were throws he should have made [that] he didn't.

We're separating Jayden and Drake. That's all we're trying to do here as Caleb [Williams] is going No. 1. You have to factor in what you saw. We saw Jayden be lights out, we saw Drake struggle a bit. So that's why Drake, to me, could go 3 [to the Patriots], and Jayden Daniels could go 2 overall to Washington."
 
Jeff Howe says, "If it’s (Eliot) Wolf running the show, expect the Pats to give a long hard look at drafting a left tackle with the No. 3 pick.”


Questions in New England​

It remains to be determined whether the New England Patriots will name a general manager, and that’s been a hot topic around the league for weeks.

When the Patriots were discussed among league and team sources, the same question continued to come up: What are they going to do at general manager?

Head coach Jerod Mayo began reaching out to candidates shortly after he was hired. It seems likely a new voice will be added to the personnel department, but that role or title is still anyone’s guess.

In-house candidates Eliot Wolf and Matt Groh have also been under consideration. If it’s Wolf running the show, expect the Patriots to give a long, hard look at drafting a left tackle with the No. 3 pick.

Whether the Patriots name an official general manager, they will tab someone to run the department, and it’s viewed as an attractive job opening. They’ll have a blank slate with a new head coach and an owner, Robert Kraft, who is highly regarded by league executives.

So, while sources around the league are curious about the process of hiring a department head, it’s also because they’re hoping to get in on the action.

FFS,
 
I agree with the sentiment. At that high of a pic, you really gotta focus on playmakers, like a wide receiver, or quarterback, or a defensive lineman, who can rush the quarterback. You can grab an Offensive lineman in the second round, and be very successful with that pic if you know how to draft.
 
This is one time for sure that I'm happy the draft is a collaborative decision. Surely the collaborative will make a better more impactful decision than to pick an OT.

Yep. I don't care if it was Walter Jones at 3; a team like the Patriots, who desperately need a QB and weapons, just cannot plunge for an OT first pick. I don't care how many times Evan Lazar says you build an offense from the inside-out; the Patriots cannot do that until they have their QB.

Either pick MHJ or Williams at 3, and if not there, look for some kind of monster trade.
