The Patriots quarterback was drafted.

With the 137th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft, New England picked Western Kentucky quarterback Billy Zap.

Last season saw astonishing numbers, with 5,967 yards and 62 touchdowns in a Western Kentucky attacking system that had him firing a whopping 686 passes. Prior to his only season in Western Kentucky, Zappy put up very good numbers while playing against a lower level competition at the Houston Baptiste.

The 6-foot-1 Zappe doesn’t have the looks of an NFL athlete, but the Patriots think he has potential. With Mac Jones Firm as a start, Zappe will be in a bootcamp competition with the veteran Brian Hoyer The 2019 fourth round selection Garrett Stidham in camp. Stedham might be the raucous weird guy.
