Patriots host QB Penix

April 16, 2024

Patriots host QB Penix … With just a few days left for teams to bring in out-of-town prospects for pre-draft visits to their facilities, there was something of a noteworthy development in New England where the Patriots had Washington QB Michael Penix in for one of their allotted ’30’ visits. Its noteworthy because the Patriots have the 3rd pick overall in next week’s draft while Penix, while a very talented, productive prospect, isn’t generally thought of as a top 10 type candidate. Of course, teams bring in players for visits for a number of reasons including simply for future reference. And while it still seems like something of a longshot, the fact the Patriots had Penix in for visit has triggered some speculation that just maybe they are still considering a trade down from the 3rd pick, for a passle of picks with the idea of taking Penix, who did lead college football in passing last fall later in the opening round. Just 9 days to go!
