The Patriots would like to add a quarterback in the 2021 NFL draft, but the big five prospects — Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Mac Jones, Trey Lance and Justin Fields — all may be gone before the Patriots are on the clock at No. 15.

But don’t rule out New England drafting a quarterback, possibly tonight or perhaps tomorrow.

The Patriots have spent plenty of time with the second tier of quarterbacks in this year’s draft, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.
