The Super Bowl Patriots sent their back up QB. Rohan Davey was a 3rd draft pick just like Ragone and they are on the same kind of development track. The Texans and Patriots both took 3rd quarterbacks to groom when they already had established starters and both of these guys are hoping to be at least as viable as a guy like Billy Volek. There are some who bash Casserly for the Ragone pick but we see teams like NE do the same thing.
