No. 24: Jimmy Garoppolo
Can Jimmy Garoppolo hold the line until Tom Brady returns? LeGarrette Blount was asked that question on Day 1 of Patriots camp and said, “I’m just as confident with Jimmy as I am with Tom.” That’s the New England ethos talking; every piece is just part of the puzzle. One game down—a magical win in Arizona—and three to go before Garoppolo returns to understudy status. And for the young QB, there could be a pot of gold waiting for him on the other side of this rainbow.
