NFL Mock Draft Patriots see Kyler Murray as Baker Mayfield at QB

Kyler Murray NFL Mock Draft Baker Mayfield at QB Patriots

It’s finally the offseason for the Patriots and even though Tom Brady looks as though he could play another 10 years at this point New England will certainly be looking at the quarterback position this spring. There was the train of thought that the Pats would look to find the next Jimmy Garoppolo in last year’s draft but New England surprised by bypassing on QB Lamar Jackson and instead taking running back Sony Michel. Bill Belichick has long taken a “best player on the board” approach and has stunned in early rounds. It’s why Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray is absolutely in play for the Patriots.

The Patriots are not afraid to take an undersized quarterback as they nearly traded up in last year’s draft to take Baker Mayfield.

“We had another team which is going to surprise you,” Mayfield’s agent Jack Mills told Andrew Brandt. “Another team had said you may get a big surprise on draft day at No. 2 if he’s available. And it was the Patriots. They had 23 and they had 31 and they had two seconds. We thought that’s going to be a heck of a move to get up that high from where they are. And of course he wasn’t available so we never knew if that was a reality or not.”

For what it’s worth Mayfield himself has endorsed Murray as a can’t miss quarterback prospect.
