Patriots continue to do homework on QBs, reportedly meet with two more


The Patriots are seemingly showing a lot of interest in the quarterbacks in this year's draft class.

According to NFL Media's Tom Pelissero, Auburn's Jarrett Stidham and Northwestern's Clayton Thorson have visited the team recently. The Patriots have also reportedly met with West Virginia's Will Grier and Duke's Daniel Jones.

These two aren't as good as the previous two, and will likely be mid-to-late round selections.

As a junior last fall, Stidham threw for 2,794 yards with 18 touchdowns and five interceptions, while as a senior Thorson passed for 3,183 yards with 17 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

It's unclear exactly what all these visits mean, as sometimes they can be used as a smokescreen and just doing due diligence rather than legitimate interest.
