Patriots QB Drake Maye 'has a lot to work on,' says coach

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - First-year New England Patriots head coach Jerod Mayo might not be as hard-lined as Bill Belichick when answering questions from reporters, but he delivered a Belichick-type response when asked his first impressions of quarterback Drake Maye at rookie minicamp.

"He has a lot to work on. A lot to work on," Mayo said Saturday, repeating himself. "But I have no doubt that he will put the time in. He was here all night trying to get on the same page as everyone else."

Mayo has said that his legacy - as well as newly-appointed executive vice president of player personnel Eliot Wolf, who was officially named to the position Saturday -- will be tied to the team's selection of Maye third overall in last month's NFL Draft.
