The upcoming NFL season leading to the 2024 NFL Draft has generated considerable interest in seeing whether Jayden Daniels, the current Heisman Trophy holder, can carry over his outstanding performance on college Saturdays to the professional Sundays.

In the latest draft rankings, LSU’s quarterback, Daniels, is positioned as one of the top prospects. Joel Klatt, a college football analyst, predicts that Daniels will be chosen as the third overall pick by the New England Patriots, following Caleb Williams and Drake Maye.

Klatt asserts that the Patriots, having a need for a quarterback, should consider Daniels as their top choice. He praises Daniels for his sensational play, noting that the Heisman Trophy winner’s skill set aligns well with the demands of the modern-day NFL. Daniels is recognized as the premier dual-threat quarterback in college football, showcasing both passing prowess with 3,812 yards and 40 touchdowns and impressive rushing abilities with 1,134 yards and 10 scores.

Given the increasing popularity of dual-threat quarterbacks in the NFL, Klatt draws comparisons to successful players like Lamar Jackson and Jalen Hurts. He acknowledges that, a decade ago, there might have been more debate about Daniels’ suitability due to his size, but his mobility, athleticism, and ability to attack both intermediate and downfield passing zones make him an attractive prospect.

Considering the Patriots’ recent challenges at the quarterback position, Klatt strongly believes that Daniels has the potential to fill the void and bring dynamic athleticism to the Patriots as their signal caller. With Mac Jones not perceived as the long-term solution and having been benched for the last six games, Klatt sees Jayden Daniels as the promising future quarterback for the New England franchise.
