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. May 9 - 9:26 PM
