3. Jayden Daniels
While there's a bit of a drop-off at the position after Williams and Maye, Jayden Daniels has a case for being the third-best QB in this year's draft class.
Now a senior, Daniels has improved dramatically over the past three seasons -- the last two of which have been with LSU after transferring from Arizona State. His completion rate has increased in each of those three campaigns, rising from 65.4% as a sophomore to 71.4% as a senior.
Daniels also has 3,164 passing yards on 11.6 yards per attempt this season, showcasing his ability to connect on medium and deep routes. That would be a game-changer for the Patriots, as Jones has consistently struggled with the deep ball, which has limited their offense.
Beyond that, Daniels also has a 30:4 TD/INT ratio this season. He's dynamic on the ground as well with 918 rushing yards and 8 rushing TDs this year after running for 885 yards and 11 touchdowns last year.
Accordingly, Daniels certainly belongs in the conversation for best QBs in the nation at the moment. Even if he's a cut below Maye and Williams, he still has a lot more upside than Jones and is worth taking a risk on.
