The New England Patriots will select the No. 3 overall pick barring any trades in the 2024 NFL Draft. They are expected to take a quarterback as the Mac Jones era has come to a close in New England after he was traded to the Jaguars for a sixth-round pick in March.

Which quarterback will they select to start a new era in New England? That will depend on which ones are available and which ones the Patriots are interested in. Let's take a look at the odds.

Drake Maye -300

Drake Maye is the clear favorite to be taken at No. 3 as of April 25 moving from -130 to -300 during the week.

He may be the biggest question mark of the top quarterbacks in the draft. Maye's ceiling is as high as anyone's because he showed off his elite arm talent and ability to throw downfield in his time at North Carolina. He is also extremely athletic and displayed an ability to make plays with his legs and throw on the run.

Throughout the 2023 college football season, he was looked at as the second-best quarterback draft prospect, but after the season unfolded, he started to slide down the board.

Maye threw for 3,608 yards, 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions during his redshirt sophomore season with the Tar Heels. That was a significant dropoff from his freshman season when he threw for 4,321 yards, 38 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

J.J. McCarthy +200

J.J. McCarthy has been one of the biggest risers throughout the NFL Draft process. Once looked at as a possible second-round pick, it appears McCarthy will likely go in the top five.

McCarthy won a lot of football games during his time at Michigan but wasn't asked to do much throwing the football, so his numbers will not blow anybody away. That has led to some question marks during the draft process.

Most scouts will point to his ability to make throws when he had to as a positive, and he understands how to manage the game.

Jayden Daniels +800

Jayden Daniels has been favored to go No. 2 overall for much of the offseason. He has all of the tools that scouts look for when evaluating a quarterback with arm strength, accuracy and mobility. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner's upside is obvious, but scouts will question his throwing motion and his durability.

Daniels threw for 3,812 yards, 40 touchdowns and four interceptions during his senior season with the LSU Tigers. His completion percentage was 72.2%, and his QBR was 95.6, the best mark in the country.

Daniels is more likely to be selected No. 2 overall than No. 3 overall.
