The word going around is that the Pats are collecting independent scouting evals on QBs. They spent a lot of time at the all star games watching and talking to QBs. The consensus was they didn‘t come away excited. Their biggest hope is rumors are true that Washington doesn’t want another NC prospect. If Washington either takes Daniels or trades up for Williams, they hope the Bears see Daniels as a better fit for their offense, leaving Maye for them. I think that’s wishful thinking. However, if Daniels has built out his frame a little and throws well for scouts, it’s not out of the question. There’s also a possibility the NYG trade with the Pats and grab Harrison. I’m also hearing Cards‘ coaches are lobbying for a WR, while Ossenfort still prefers an OT. The Cards did spend time at the All Star games with several OL guys. If they’re confident with Johnson at LT, they could wait until 27 or even 35 to go OT. They like Beachum as a fallback.
