New England Patriots' superstar Quarterback Tom Brady will retire. Eventually. When and how is the only question on everyone's minds right now. But as he ages, it's only imperative that the Patriots try and prepare for the inevitable.
Below are five draft prospects the Patriots could pick up for next season.
Mike Leach, Falk's college coach, once said that there are similarities between Falk and Brady, namely "an underdog mentality, a rigid healthy meal plan, and an impeccable work ethic."
If that's not an endorsement for the Patriots to consider Luke Falk as the heir to Brady's throne, then consider this: Falk threw for 471 yards and five touchdowns in his first start, in addition to holding Pac-12 football records for career passing attempts, completion, completion percentage, passing, years and passing touchdowns.
The 6-foot-4 passer has a good arm, which isn't surprising since he was also a star baseball pitcher in high school while at NSU.
White started his collegiate career at South Florid, but later transferred to Western Kentucky where he built his reputation for accurate passes and arm strength. He threw for over 4,000 yards his junior and senior seasons combined, including 74 touchdowns and 31 interceptions.
There's no doubt White is a good if not great quarterback and has the potential to become even better under the tutelage of someone like Tom Brady.
Josh Allen needed to come up big at the 2018 NFL Draft combine to wash away all the criticism of him being erratic and that's exactly what he did in Indianapolis. With a good arm and a penchant for pinpoint accurate long pass passes, what better way for Allen to learn than from one of the best QBs in NFL history himself?
