AFC Rumors: Christian Wilkins, Drake Maye, Jayden Daniels, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots



  • SNY’s Connor Hughes says the Jets want to add a true “X” receiver to allow WR Garrett Wilson to operate out of the slot. He says Brown and former Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling are two of their preferred targets. 
  • Hughes mentions not everyone in the Jets’ building thinks Gabe Davis has much upside, even though he’s set to hit free agency and leave Buffalo. 
  • Hughes notes the Jets scouted Tulane QB Michael Pratt pretty heavily last season and some people came away impressed. He’d be an option for the Jets on Day 3 of the draft. 
  • On the chance former Jets WR Corey Davis wanted to unretire and play, Hughes says the team would welcome him back, albeit with a contract adjustment. 


  • In a mock draft of the top-10 picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, six anonymous executives voted to make North Carolina QB Drake Maye the Patriots’ No. 3 overall pick, per Mike Sando of The Athletic. 
  • One executive thinks New England would rather pick LSU’s Jayden Daniels, but they will be fine going with Maye: “I think they would probably rather have Jayden Daniels, but I’ll put Maye in there,”
  • Sportskeeda’s Tony Pauline has heard speculation that the Patriots would trade down if Daniels wasn’t available, as their building is a little split on Maye. There are some scouts with big questions about his film, while others in the organization are sold. 
  •’s Albert Breer thinks the Patriots are likely staying at number two overall and taking a quarterback, but he believes they will “listen to offers” with the Giants and Falcons being two potential trade options.
  • According to Jason La Canfora, the Patriots may be higher on UNC QB Drake Maye than the Commanders.
