Supply-and-Demand Overview: New England took Jarrett Stidham in the fourth round out of Auburn a year ago. With Tom Brady having moved on to Tampa Bay in free agency, Stidham is left as the top dog on the Patriots depth chart. He threw just four passes as a rookie, including a pick-6 interception. Stidham impressed his teammates and coaches last fall with his work ethic, maturity and growth. But that doesn’t mean he’s a sure-fire starter or guy to build a franchise around. As such, there is certainly the possibility that Bill Belichick’s team might consider drafting another quarterback, either as high as in the first round or as a competitive piece later in the process. This year’s class offers franchise options atop the group, but there isn’t a ton of overly desirable depth after the first handful of guys go off the board.
