Justin Herbert To Patriots? What It Would Take To getting Oregon QB On Pats
In the two weeks leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft, NESN.com will be taking a closer look at this year’s quarterback class and how each player could fit with the New England Patriots. Next up, Oregon’s Justin Herbert. Justin Herbert, Oregon 6 foot-6, 236 pounds, 10-inch hands Projected Round: Early first 2019 Stats: 66.8 percent, 3,471 yards, 32 touchdowns, six interceptions, 9 yards per attempt; 58 carries, 50 yards (subtracting sacks), four touchdowns Strengths: Arm strength, mobility, deep accuracy, poise under pressure, experience, prototypical size, can throw on the move, limits interceptions Weaknesses: Shallow accuracy, processing, propensity for fumbles, lack of progression during college career Testing numbers: 4.68-second 40-yard dash, 1.62-second 10-yard split, 7.06-second three-cone drill, 4.46-second short shuttle, 35.5-inch vertical leap, 10-feet, 3-inch broad jump Analysis: The draft machine moves quickly. Just ask Justin Herbert, who once was the college football wunderkind for whom teams would be “tanking” to take in the draft. Then he was passed by Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa.
Then Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence caught the world’s fancy. And then LSU’s Joe Burrow had perhaps the best season by a quarterback in college football history. Meanwhile, Herbert kept chugging along, dipping a bit during his junior season then having his most productive year as a senior. And since rankings are constantly fluctuating, Herbert might have leapfrogged Tagovailoa on draft boards over the course of the last few weeks. Herbert has prototypical size and hasn’t been injured since his sophomore season (broken collarbone). Tagovailoa stands 6-feet and suffered multiple injuries, including a season-ending hip ailment in 2019.
More Patriots: What To Know About First-Round Options
Herbert will likely be gone by the sixth overall pick. Things can certainly change, but we heard the Los Angeles Chargers were infatuated with Herbert at the NFL Scouting Combine. The Miami Dolphins need a quarterback and pick fifth. The Cincinnati Bengals will almost certainly draft Burrow with the top pick. It’s tough to envision scenarios in which Herbert starts falling, but among draft evaluators, he’s not a consensus top-10 prospect.
Dane Brugler of The Athletic sees him as a fringe first-round prospect. He’s 30th on Pro Football Focus’ big board. NFL Media’s Daniel Jeremiah ranks him 20th. He’s 27th on ESPN’s big board and 18th on CBS Sports. And remember, Aaron Rodgers did once fall all the way down to 24th overall. So, while it seems unlikely as of Thursday morning that Herbert could get to the New England Patriots’ No. 23 pick — or within range for a trade-up — it’s at least possible. Herbert does seem like a quarterback the Patriots would be willing to move up to draft. He has prototypical size and perhaps the best pure arm strength in the 2020 NFL Draft.
His throwing mechanics are tight, he never had more than eight interceptions in a season and can huck the ball downfield with efficient results. He’s also impressively mobile for his size within the pocket, scrambling and throwing on the move. His testing numbers are in line with an athletic tight end. He went 27-of-69 for 874 yards with 12 touchdowns and just two interceptions on deep throws in 2019, per PFF. He’s not Burrow, but he showed above-average poise under pressure, completing 36-of-83 passes with four touchdowns and two interceptions with pressure bearing down, per PFF. There are some concerns with his accuracy in the shallow part of the field and in his ability to read and process a defense quickly.
So, if Herbert did start to fall, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Patriots put a package together to move up and grab him. They could either package their own 2020 picks, include left guard Joe Thuney or even trade future picks. More potential Patriots quarterbacks: Nate Stanley, Jake Fromm, Jalen Hurts, Jacob Eason, James Morgan, Jordan Love, Joe Burrow, Tua Tagvailoa, Jake Luton

Justin Herbert selected by Los Angeles Chargers at No. 6 in NFL draft
EUGENE — Justin Herbert is headed to Hollywood.
The former Oregon quarterback was selected by the Los Angeles Chargers with the No. 6 overall pick of the NFL draft Thursday night.
“This is such an incredible opportunity,” Herbert said. “Words can’t describe how excited and thrilled and fired up I am for this opportunity and to be able to spend it in Eugene with my family. It’s years of hard work and I’m going to do everything I can to be the best quarterback I can be and do everything I can for the city of Los Angeles.”
Herbert watched and celebrated the evening with his parents, Mark and Holly, and brothers, Mitchell and Patrick, at their home in Eugene. His parents were excited about the possibility of him playing in Los Angeles from the moment his college career ended and now it’s come to fruition.
“They’re excited or me to be a Charger and I think they’re even more excited I’m going to be on the West coast,” Herbert said. “It’s been great growing up in Eugene. I can’t wait to get down to L.A. and go out and be on my own. This is an opportunity and experience that I’ve waited for my entire life.”
The first Oregon player selected in this year’s draft and the highest a Duck has been selected since Marcus Mariota went No. 2 in 2015, Herbert is the fifth Oregon quarterback drafted in the first round of the common draft era (1967), tying Cal and USC for most in that span. He’s the sixth UO quarterback and 18th Duck in program history to be drafted in the first round of the NFL draft all-time.
His four-year contract, with a fifth-year club option, is projected to be worth $26,578,764 with a $16,890,008 signing bonus, according to OverTheCap.com.
Most analysts projected Herbert to go to either Miami or the L.A. Chargers. The last Oregon player drafted by the Chargers was defensive end Igor Olshansky in the second round in 2004.
Chargers general manager Tom Telesco was among a large group of NFL team executives to watch Herbert play in person during the past two seasons. Telesco attended Oregon’s game at USC, during which Herbert went 21 for 26 for 225 yards with three touchdowns and an interception and had a rushing touchdown, though Herbert said he wasn’t aware of Telesco’s presence at the time.
“I didn’t want to let that distract or take away my focus from the game,” he said. “So I went into each game knowing to go play your game, relax and let things take care of themselves.”
Canzano: Justin Herbert to the Chargers with the No. 6 pick is a win for both sides
Herbert’s draft stock was high ever since the end of his junior season, when he was widely projected to be either the first quarterback drafted or certainly no less than a top 6 selection and in choosing to return to UO for his senior season, improved statistically, led the Ducks to a Pac-12 Championship and Rose Bowl win and had a strong showing throughout the draft process.
“There was never any question about my decision,” Herbert said. “I knew that I’d made the right one and to be able to finish this past year off with our group of seniors, to win the Rose Bowl and to be where we are today, it is validation. Injuries and the money were never the issue. So fired up and so excited for this opportunity.”
The Eugene native completed 66.8 percent of his passes for 3,471 yards with 32 touchdowns and six interceptions last season. Herbert won the Campbell Trophy, commonly referred to as the academic Heisman, was named Rose Bowl offensive MVP and was a finalist for the Manning and Unitas awards.
His pre-draft process was about as successful as one could reasonably ask for.
He faced questions as to his personality head-on at the Senior Bowl, where he was named game MVP and was praised by the Cincinnati Bengals’ coaching staff, who worked with the South team that game week.
At the NFL Combine, Herbert ran the 40-yard dash in 4.68 seconds, third among the 13 quarterbacks to run and he third fastest time among all QBs at least 6-foot-6 and 230 pounds to run at the Combine since 2000.
