Jerod Mayo: Drake Maye has a lot to work on, he’ll put the time in

The Patriots obviously saw a lot to like in quarterback Drake Maye in order to draft him with the third overall pick last month, but they know he’s not a finished product after 26 college starts.

Head coach Jerod Mayo emphasized this point during a press conference at the team’s rookie minicamp this weekend. Mayo was asked to give an assessment of Maye’s work in his first practice with the team and Mayo’s response focused on how much room the quarterback has to improve.

“First impressions of Drake? Look, he’s got a lot to work on,” Mayo said, via a team transcript. “There is a lot of work to do. But I have no doubt that he will dedicate time to it. You didn’t see him here yesterday, but he was here all night trying to get on the same page as everyone else.

Patriots plan to have Maye to be in competition with veteran Jacoby Brissett for the starting job ahead of the 2024 season and the rookie will need to continue to put in the time if he wants to end up seeing the field early in his Patriots career.
