Texas A&M quarterback Stephen McGee is scheduled to meet with the Patriots on one of the team’s allotted 30 pre-draft visits at Gillette Stadium, according to a league source.
McGee is considered a mid-round prospect and his trip to New England appears to highlight one of the main reasons NFL teams invest in pre-draft visits – a final medical checkup. McGee injured his throwing shoulder early last season and was limited to three starts. Because of that, in addition to a scheme change at Texas A&M last season, he is one of the more challenging prospects for scouts and coaches to assign a value.
The Patriots currently have three quarterbacks on the roster – Tom Brady, Kevin O’Connell and Matt Gutierrez – and it would not be surprising if they look to add a fourth option.
