New England Patriots select Jarrett Stidham

Auburn Tigers quarterback Jarrett Stidham

The Patriots certainly have options when it comes to finding Brady's eventual replacement, and perhaps Stidham will be able to develop into a franchise quarterback in New England. Stidham is the third Tigers quarterback drafted into the National Football League since 1990, joining Cam Newton and Jason Campbell.

Over his three-year collegiate career at Auburn and Baylor, Stidham threw for 7,217 yards, 48 touchdowns and just 13 interceptions while completing 64.3 percent of his passes.

Stidham started each of his two seasons for the Tigers after signing with Auburn in December 2016 as a transfer.

"Shoot, I'm extremely excited", Stidham told reporters on Saturday. The same was true for 41-year-old Tom Brady and later Brian Hoyer and Danny Etling and whoever else came through the door as a Day 3 pick or undrafted player.

"He's an impressive kid. I've got to take it one day at a time, and that's what I'm going to do and I'm going to work as absolutely hard as I can to make sure I can do whatever it is to help this organization out." said Stidham. He went from being a mobile QB with good mechanics with confidence to step up under pressure highlighted in a win over Alabama in 2017. But using a pick at the end of the fourth round - New England's seventh pick in this year's draft, to be exact - on a quarterback shouldn't signal anything more than what it is: another challenger for backup duties in 2019 and beyond.
