Ryan Mallett sidelined; Jimmy Garoppolo gets chance
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett sported a brace on his knee during warmup drills on Wednesday, suggesting that is the reason for him missing offseason workouts. ESPN notes rookie Jimmy Garoppolo took his reps in team drills, struggling with everything from getting the snap to completing passes.

Patriots sign rookie Jimmy Garoppolo
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Patriots announced Monday the signing of second-round draft choice quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

Garoppolo was selected by the Patriots in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft with the 62nd selection overall of out Eastern Illinois. He started in all 45 games that he appeared in college, completing 1,047-of-1,668 passes for 13,151 yards and 118 touchdowns.

As a senior in 2013, Garoppolo was named the Walter Payton Award winner, given to the top player in the Football Championship Subdivision, after completing 375-of-568 passes for 5,050 yards and 53 touchdowns.

He is expected to be the No. 3 quarterback in New England behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett.

Patriots draft QB Jimmy Garoppolo
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

With the No. 62 pick in the NFL Draft, the Patriots selected quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from Eastern Illinois.

Garoppolo will be No. 3 on the depth chart for the Patriots behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett. He could be the eventual replacement for Brady if Mallett isn't with the Patriots beyond 2014 when he's a free agent.

A four-year starter, Garoppolo ran a unique offense that combined an up-tempo approach with a pure read philosophy at Eastern Illinois. The end result was a slew of plays week after week -- and the stats to match. Garoppolo threw for 13,156 passing yards and 118 touchdowns over four seasons and impressively had just nine interceptions over 568 pass attempts.

He's considered a smart, big enough quarterback with a good arm and a very fast release, but questions about his experience playing in the FCS rather than the FBS cloud his future. The Patriots have time to find out with Brady not going anywhere any time soon.
