New England Patriots Select QB Jimmy Garoppolo

The New England Patriots have added QB Jimmy Garoppolo through the NFL Draft with their selection in the 2nd round. Now what will the team do with their other QB Ryan Mallett? He likely will be on the trading block now and some team will give him the chance.

The Patriots now have a highly rated quarterback as their backup to Tom Brady and can groom him to take over the starting job for when Brady decides to hang up the pads. Garoppolo is one of the better quarterbacks in the draft and will step in to a nice situation. He won’t have to produce immediately and will get the luxury of learning from the Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady.

Garoppolo will work with Bill Belichick and the offense and will get his chance to play in a couple of years. Brady will either hang up his cleats or Garoppolo will get traded to some other roster and get a chance to produce.
