Patriots | Depth at quarterback

New England Patriots rookie QB Ryan Mallett will be able to sit buried on the depth chart and be afforded time to learn the system. QB Tom Brady is firmly entrenched as the starter, and Brian Hoyer has shown promise as his backup. The Patriots also have Jonathan Crompton, who was a fifth-round selection in 2010, on the roster.

Hoyer is entering the final year of his contract, so if he plays well during the preseason the Patriots could look to shop him to another team if there is interest around the NFL.
