There's no doubt they'll stock up on young talent again with all those picks, but QB definitely is a need. With six or more teams desperate for a starter, there won't be any talent left in the free agent pool once the season starts (assuming it does). Do the Patriots really want to gamble again on Brady staying healthy? Hoyer has been awful in limited action. Due to this year's demand for quarterbacks, it's highly unlikely that anyone like Brady will slip through the cracks and appear in late to mid rounds. With all those early picks, why not grab a late first or early second QB? It would probably even be an excellent move from a trade bait standpoint. Some teams are going to lose out in the scramble for QBs and might be willing to give up more for a player than they would have for the draft pick itself.
