The NFL Draft begins tomorrow in Detroit, and according to multiple analysts, there are three big names at the quarterback position. Many draft analysts even have the first three picks, all of whom are quarterbacks.

With both the Chicago Bears and the Washington Commanders being nailed to their draft positions, according to pretty much everybody who’s had conversations with their team’s respective general managers, the last pick that could possibly moved in the top three is the New Patriots’ number three overall pick.

Among the teams reportedly interested in the Patriots’ number three pick have been NFC bottom-hangers the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, one of these two teams has become more desperate than the other.

Schefter reports that Minnesota has the better capital to trade for the pick, and the fact that they are slated to draft at the eleventh overall spot only adds to their urgency. The previously mentioned Giants are currently sitting at sixth.

Schefter also pointed out, on the Get Up podcast, that the “Giants have done a lot of work” in terms of their quarterback situation, with Daniel Jones being under contract with the G-Men for at least next season, as they would have to give up over $33 million in dead money if they were to release him.

The Vikings currently only have one capable quarterback, Sam Darnold, who could be considered a starter. The third overall pick will seemingly be either JJ McCarthy or Drake Maye, and if the Vikings were to choose one of those two, Darnold would instantly become a bridge QB.

The Vikings have reportedly made some “laughable” offers for the Patriots’ selection leading up to Thursday’s draft in Detroit. The Pats, however, are still entertaining the idea of moving the pick as they are waiting for a “serious” offer, according to MassLine’s Mark Daniels and Karen Guregian.

While a move has yet to take place, if one pick moves, others will as well, but it all remains to be seen. NFL fans are eager to find out and will when the 2024 NFL Draft begins on April 24th in Detroit, Michigan.
