National Football League mock draft: Saquon Barkley heads to Giants

National Football League mock draft: Saquon Barkley heads to Giants

With Tom Brady turning 41 ahead of next season, finding his successor is one of the Patriots' most pressing needs this offseason.

His admiration of Brady's game goes beyond what the quarterback does on Sundays.

"I love him on the field - he's not afraid to take shots downfield, has an underrated arm, and he has won a ton of games", Kiper wrote.

Aside from the Manziel and Favre comparisons, there is also the height issue that Mayfield will also have to overcome, especially in the big boy AFC North division that has the likes of Ben Roethlisberger, Andy Dalton and Joe Flacco.

She later stated that she had finished high school when the interaction with Patrick Brown took place. Brown tweeted that he is soley focused on clearing his name, not technicalities.

One such rumor focuses on the Buffalo Bills and their apparent desire to land UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen, who is considered one of the top two available quarterback prospects and most likely to go No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Browns or No. 2 overall to the New York Giants. While it's a fairly quarterback-heavy draft, most teams picking in the Top 10 need a QB of the future, so it's doubtful he makes it to late Thursday evening without hearing his name.

Rosen is a leader with the football IQ to tear teams apart.

This isn't to say their current stable of signal callers breeds confidence, but instead that they could look at upgrading the position in free agency. Would he dare pass on the position in favor of a more sure thing? "Like I said, my biggest fear is failure, and so losing is failing", he said. He believes he is the best quarterback in the draft and that declaration not be attributed to cockiness. If all four are considered top 10 overall prospects, then they all might be off the board before the 10th pick even comes around, making it nearly impossible for the Cardinals to land one at No. 15. "If I was Tom Brady, then we would maybe have a different conversation, but he doesn't have that mentality, so that's what makes him great".
