Patriots selected Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo with the No. 62 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Garoppolo (6-foot-2 1/4, 226) made 45 starts for the D-IAA Panthers, compiling a 23-22 record and eclipsing many of fellow former EIU quarterbacks Tony Romo and Sean Payton's passing marks. Garoppolo was voted FCS Player of the Year as a senior. A good athlete with average arm strength, Garoppolo was highly efficient in a quick-hitting college spread offense, but often struggled when pressured, lacks ideal hand size (9 1/4"), and will have to rework his lower-body mechanics. If Garoppolo is supposed to eventually take over for Tom Brady, the offense could focus on quick passes unless some major development takes place. Fri, May 9, 2014 09:26:00 PM
