The New England Patriots took a lot of heat when they selected former Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round (No. 62 overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft. The Pats already had the greatest quarterback (and player) in the history of the NFL on their roster, and they were coming off of a loss to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game, which exposed several weaknesses. Now, almost three years later, the decision appeared to be yet another brilliant draft day move by the greatest coach in NFL history, Bill Belichick.
