The Athletic's Bruce Feldman predicts that the New England Patriots will take North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye with the third overall pick in this year's NFL draft after the Washington Commanders go with LSU QB Jayden Daniels. The Pats are surely going to get some offers for the No. 3 pick, but it will be hard for them to pass on a franchise signal-caller after trading Mac Jones to the Jaguars this offseason. Maye didn't exactly impress with his stats in 2023, but he is a very gifted prospect and would come in and compete with veteran Jacoby Brissett for the starting gig in Week 1 this fall. Given the 21-year-old's smaller sample size, he's seen as more of a developmental QB compared to Daniels and USC's Caleb Williams. "I think he could be a better quarterback than Caleb Williams if you can protect him. He throws the s out of it, but the last two years we could tell that he really doesn't like all that stuff around him," one coach said.

The New England Patriots are hosting North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye on a top-30 visit on Friday at Gillette Stadium, according to sources. The Patriots hold the third overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft and also met with Maye at the scouting combine in February and again before his pro day. The Patriots traded Mac Jones to the Jacksonville Jaguars and are looking to draft their next franchise signal-caller this year. Veteran Jacoby Brissett could be the bridge QB if the rookie that New England takes isn't ready to start in Week 1 this fall. The Bears are fully expected to take USC QB Caleb Williams at No. 1 overall, and the Patriots could take Maye third overall if the Commanders go with LSU QB Jayden Daniels at No. 2 overall.

North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye, who is expected to be a top-five overall pick in this year's NFL draft, showed off his arm at his school's pro day on Thursday. The 6-foot-4, 223-pounder didn't throw at the scouting combine in February but showcased his arm talent while attempting 70-plus passes. "I know it's not perfect and pro day performances, as much as we want them to be perfect, I actually am more encouraged by the misses and the corrections after the misses than anything. The talent is there. He is the prototype," NFL Network's Bucky Brooks said. Maye's arm talent isn't in question, but his lack of experience -- he played only two of the last four years -- is. He's expected to have a meeting with the New York Giants "in the coming days." The G-Men are far from the only team showing interest in Maye, though.

New England Patriots head coach Jerod Mayo and director of scouting Eliot Wolf were among those from the organization attending USC's pro day last Wednesday and then Michigan's pro day on Friday, giving them a closer look at quarterbacks Caleb Williams (USC) and J.J. McCarthy (Michigan). Mayo and Wolf will likely be at LSU's pro day this Wednesday for Jayden Daniels and at North Carolina's on Thursday to watch Drake Maye. Many pundits project the Patriots taking a QB with the No. 3 overall pick in next month's NFL draft, and their scouting schedule only reinforces that thought. New England move on from Mac Jones this offseason, trading him to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and are fully expected to bring in a rookie signal-caller in the draft to compete with Jacoby Brissett for the starting gig in 2024.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah said on Thursday that he thinks the Minnesota Vikings "will put forth a strong effort to try and get up to get Drake Maye" in the upcoming NFL draft in April. The Vikings sit with the No. 11 pick in the first round of the draft, but they just made a trade on Friday with the Houston Texans to add another first-round selection (23rd overall), giving them more draft capital to potentially make a leap into the first five picks in order to acquire a franchise signal-caller like Maye. The Vikings started down this path of trying to trade up for a QB after Kirk Cousins left for the Atlanta Falcons in free agency. Minnesota signed former first-rounder Sam Darnold earlier this week, but he will almost certainly serve as a bridge QB for whichever signal-caller the Vikings take in this year's draft.

Five of six NFL executives polled when asked who they think the Washington Commanders will take with the second overall pick in this year's NFL draft chose LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels over North Carolina QB Drake Maye, but the one holdout for Maye said he heard that Commanders general manager Adam Peters was "really into" Maye. Incumbent Sam Howell and Maye were teammates at North Carolina, and Howell could open 2024 as the starter if the Commanders wanted to give Maye more time to iron out his mechanics. If Washington passes on Maye and goes with Daniels, there's a good chance Maye would be selected third overall by the New England Patriots, assuming they don't trade back. The biggest knock on Maye heading into this year's draft are his mechanical issues concerning his footwork.

North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye, who is one of the top QBs available in this year's draft, has flashed exceptional creativity and aggressiveness as a downfield passer while also exhibiting the ability to create outside of structure. But his production took a hit in 2023 while his footwork and decision-making got sloppy as the season wore on. Maye attacks the middle of the field with anticipation and aggressively hunts for deep opportunities. The Athletic's Ted Nguyen compares him to Josh Allen and C.J. Stroud when discussing his creativity in the pocket and the way he manipulates defenses. Maye could need a year to hone is on his fundamentals and to clean up his foot work, but Nguyen believes the young QB has the skill set to take off as early as his sophomore season. It's why he could come off the board as early as No. 2 overall to the Commanders in April's draft.

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Aidan O'Connell stayed afloat in his rookie season while being forced into action in 2023 over 10 starts, but he mostly looked like someone best suited for a role as a backup. At the very least, the Raiders need to bring in a starting-caliber QB in free agency to compete for the job with O'Connell, in the opinion of The Athletic's Tashan Reed. In an ideal circumstance, the Raiders will land their QB of the future in the 2024 NFL draft. However, there's no guaranteed they can get in range for one of the top prospects at the position, as they currently have the No. 13 overall pick in the first round. Reed suggests that the Raiders should make every effort to find a QB in a loaded class that is headlined by USC's Caleb Williams, North Carolina's Drake Maye and LSU's Jayden Daniels.

The New England Patriots have met with North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye, LSU QB Jayden Daniels, Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy and Oregon QB Bo Nix at the NFL scouting combine this week in Indianapolis, according to sources. They are also scheduled to meet with USC's Caleb Williams on Wednesday night. With the No. 3 overall pick in this year's NFL draft, the Patriots have a great chance to land a franchise signal-caller as they look to improve over the disappointing Mac Jones. Not only will the Patriots be led by someone other than Bill Belichick for the first time in the last 24 years in 2024, but New England is also going to have a new face under center for the start of the new season this fall, whether it be a rookie or a veteran.

North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye is not going to throw at the NFL scouting combine this week in Indianapolis and is solely planning to do "just physicals and interviews," according to a source. The top-three quarterback prospects for this year's NFL draft -- USC's Caleb Williams, Maye, and LSU's Jayden Daniels -- will all skip throwing drills at the combine this week. The 21-year-old Maye will instead do his throwing for scouts at his school's pro day. In his final season with the Tar Heels in college, Maye threw for 3,608 yards, 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions last year after throwing for 4,321 yards, 38 TDs and seven interceptions in 2022. Williams is widely expected to be taken first overall by the Bears in this year's draft, but Maye could easily go No. 2 to the Commanders and start immediately in his rookie season.

The Las Vegas Raiders are seriously looking for an upgrade at the quarterback position at this week's NFL combine as we approach the 2024 NFL draft. They have nine picks over seven rounds in this year's draft and will likely take a crack at securing a franchise signal-caller who has eluded them for decades. The 2024 QB class is considered one of the deepest in years, although the Raiders are unlikely to have access to the consensus top-four QBs -- Caleb Williams, Drake Maye, Jayden Daniels and J.J. McCarthy -- at 13th overall in the first round. That spot might also be too high to reach on Michael Penix or Bo Nix. If the Raiders really like one of the top-four QB prospects in this year's draft, they may be compelled to trade up to the top of the draft in order to find a significant upgrade over Aidan O'Connell, who impressed in his rookie season in 2023.

The top of the 2024 NFL draft is setting up to be very offense-heavy. The Chicago Bears, Washington Commanders and New England Patriots are all currently slotted into the top three picks and are all teams that could use quarterbacks. It's almost a foregone conclusion that USC's Caleb Williams and North Carolina's Drake Maye will be off the board by pick No. 3, at the latest. Ohio State superstar wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. also figures to enter into the early-round equation. The Athletic's Dane Brugler has LSU receiver Malik Nabers going to the Arizona Cardinals at No. 4, Georgia tight end Brock Bowers going to the Los Angeles Chargers at No. 5, Washington receiver Rome Odunze at No. 6 to the New York Giants and LSU QB Jayden Daniels going to he Atlanta Falcons at No. 8.
