The New England Patriots have raised many an eyebrow this offseason by offering workouts to top quarterbacks Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater.

Despite having one of the best passers in the league in Tom Brady, teams have been made to wonder if the Pats are ready to move on from the 'Golden Boy'.

Well, they're not. But they do intend to draft a quarterback this year according to reports. Draft Insider reveals:

"The feeling league wide is the Patriots will take a quarterback at some point in the draft as they expect to lose Ryan Mallett at the end of next season, hence the interest in Thomas."

Logan Thomas, an interesting prospect from Virginia Tech, impressed earlier in his college career but has since fallen off. However, Bill Belichick must see something in him if he continues to pursue him on draft day.

Although a rookie quarterback will just be brought in on a backup-basis, with Brady hitting 37 by the time the season starts, the Patriots will surely start to look for someone who could take up the mantle on a full-time basis.

Whether that player is available in this draft, or years to come remains to be seen. For Bill Belichick and the Patriots, the clock is ticking.
