2018 NFL Mock Draft: Patriots draft Brady’s heir, Broncos get Lamar Jackson after trade

Hello, Bill Belichick. Welcome to the quarterback market. May the odds be ever in your favor.

In the aftermath of the New England Patriots‘ stunning trade that sent speedy wideout Brandin Cooks to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for the 23rd-overall pick in this month’s draft (other picks were involved), the Patriots, who also sit at No. 31 in the draft order, are unofficially in play to draft Tom Brady’s heir to the throne. After all, the Patriots’ succession plan evaporated within the past year after they decided to trade both Jacoby Brissett and Jimmy Garoppolo, both of whom looked like starting-caliber quarterbacks with their new teams, with Garoppolo looking like a future superstar. 

As it stands, the Patriots’ backup to Brady is Brian Hoyer, a more than fine short-term replacement who has absolutely no chance of succeeding Brady. Meanwhile, Brady himself is suddenly talking as if there’s a possibility he could retire in the short-term, which shouldn’t inherently come as a surprise given that he will turn 41 in August, but is definitely a surprise considering this is a guy who once sounded like he wanted to play well into his mid-40s.

Regardless of when Brady chooses to step away from football
