3. Odell Beckham Jr., WR

At this stage of his career, Odell Beckham Jr. might be a bigger name than he is impact on the field, but he still could work for the New England Patriots with Jacoby Brissett or a rookie at the QB position.

New England's passing attack was dreadful last season. They have seemingly been flirting with the idea of signing Beckham Jr. for years with rumors that he could sign in 2021, 2022, and the Patriots showing up to watch him work out in 2023.

Add in the fact that Alex Van Pelt worked with Beckham Jr. before as his offensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns, and you might be onto something here.

Beckham Jr. hasn't been in the Pro Bowl since the 2016 season. Things didn't end well for him in New York or Cleveland. But there's no denying that the teams he's played for have been much better. The Ravens were one of the best teams in the league last year. The Rams won a Super Bowl thanks largely to his contributions.

The Patriots might not be Super Bowl contenders with Beckham Jr. on the roster, but he could be a featured piece of their passing game and would give whoever is playing quarterback a true go-to option.
