Georgia’s Jake Fromm could be available late in the first round. Known for his great pocket presence From is also challenges defences. Has average arm strength. Coming from a winning program/Georgia  will help in earn a spot in the NFL

Jacob Eason, pf Washington may also be available late in the first round.  Known for his deep passing, Eason led Washington to an 8-5 record in2019.                                                                                                     

Free Agents If the  Patriots do not draft a quarterback, then free agency may be an option. Notable quarterbacks available are MarcusMariota, Teddy Bridgewater, Brian Hoyer, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Jacoby Brissett.  Bridgewater is the best back for your buck at 27 years old. In 2019 Bridgewater threw for 13000 yards and 9 touchdowns.

Restructure The Offense  Despite going 12-4 in 2019 there were many issues on offense. The receiving group was thin. Rookies NKeal Harry and Jacobi Meyers were learning the system. At times Brady showed his frustration by yelling at his teammate’s                                                                                                                    Wideout Phillip Dorsett showed flashes but saw his playing time decrease. Mohamed Sanu was acquired at the trade deadline but also, struggled to pick up the offense.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  If Tom Brady does return in 2020 then he needs protection in order for the team to win. Look for Belichick to draft a  tackle in the early rounds. USC tack Austin Jackson would be a perfect fit. Guards Joe Thuney and Ted Karras are set to hit the open market. Veteran center Dave Andrews suffered a season_ ending illness. If he can return healthy, he would be a big boost to the line.                                                                                                                                                                                      Special Teams Early in the season kicker Stephen Gostkowski suffered a season_ending hip injury.  Halfway through the season, the Patriots relied on Nick Folk.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              If Gostkowski does not return, then free agency may be an alternative. Kicker Kimi Fairbairn of Houston is available. The four_year veteran could be a bargain with a salary of 3,000,000.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   2020, Outlook  For the Patriots the future hinges on signing Tom Brady. The Patriots have 49,000,000 dollars in cap space . Drafting and signing receivers is priority number one. The Patriots need to find a tight end. Rob Gronkowski never returned. The 2020 offseason should be one of the most challenging ones in recent memory.
