The 2024 NFL draft is just a couple of months away, and the New England Patriots have been mostly mocked as a team likely to take a quarterback.
New England will certainly have their options to choose from at the position with the third overall pick. Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne cast his vote for a signal-caller in an interview with NBC Sports Boston’s Tom E. Curran.
This year’s draft is top-heavy with quarterbacks. Caleb Williams, Drake Maye and Jayden Daniels all figure to be selected within the first 10 picks. Bourne knows which one he wants, as the organization looks towards the future at the position.
“I like Jayden Daniels. So I’m a Jayden Daniels fan, Heisman Trophy winner, obviously,” said Bourne. “I love how he plays, being able to be versatile. So, I think that would be a strong suit for us, just in my opinion.”

Daniels certainly had a stellar career for LSU, throwing for 4,812 yards, 40 touchdowns and four interceptions in 2023. His mobility and strong arm could be a change for New England. He certainly could provide intrigue with the Patriots clearly needing a spark from the quarterback position.
Who knows? Bourne may get his top quarterback after all.
