With Patriots camp set to open next week, we wanted to reset the roster at each position and give you a few things we’ll be keeping an eye on when they hit the field in Foxborough. First up? We look at quarterbacks.

Tom Brady’s presence makes this the marquee position on the team, even after an eventful offseason for the defending NFL MVP. Considering his age and the fact New England was armed with plenty of high-value draft capital, we would have bet you just about anything New England would have gone after another quarterback this spring. (And depending on who you believe, they tried to.) But they ended up taking a late-round flier on LSU’s Danny Etling, tacking him to the back of a depth chart that is headed by Brady and Brian Hoyer.
