McShay scouting report: Jacoby Brissett

Get to know the newest Patriot, No. 91 overall pick Jacoby Brissett. Todd McShay breaks down the former NC State quarterback.

The Patriots select NC State QB Jacoby Brissett with the No. 91 selection late in the third round. The team needed a No. 3 QB, and with Tom Brady's four-game suspension, Brissett is likely to fill the void.

With their initial third-round pick, No. 78, the Patriots selected OL Joe Thuney of NC State. Thuney (6-foot-4 5/8, 304 pounds) played all five positions in college, finishing at left tackle, and is considered an intelligent player.

Mike Reiss ESPN New England Patriots reporter 

Patriots top draft pick, CB Cyrus Jones of Alabama, held his introductory conference call and this was my biggest takeaway: A film session with coach Bill Belichick the day before the Crimson Tide's pro day was a big part of the team's evaluation process. Jones also relayed that Alabama's coaches joked with him that he should have an office at the facility because he was always there watching film.

Patriots trade No. 61 to Saints for third-rounder (78) and fourth rounder (112). Part of today's strategy was to close gap between picks from 96 to 196.

Patriots select Alabama CB Cyrus Jones with the No. 60 pick, then trade No. 61. Jones was identified as a "favorite five" option for the team entering the draft. He is a high-intangibles prospect who factors into the return game.
