The Patriots Absolutely Need to Take a Quarterback in the First Round No Matter What

If you haven’t heard, the Patriots need a quarterback. The Cam Newton experience was, to put it lightly, something short of a success. With Newton and Brian Hoyer set to hit free agency this offseason, Jarrett Stidham will be the only quarterback left on the roster once March 17th rolls around. Some fans and media around New England had higher hopes for Stidham in 2020 than being the backup quarterback all season (or something even 3rd string) and perhaps that same optimism will carry over for as long as Stidham is the projected starter in 2021. However, New England fans should at least hesitate before jumping on the Stidham hype train once again.
