The New England Patriots will be hosting North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye on his official Top 30 visit today. Each NFL teams are allowed to invite up to 30 draft prospects to come to their facilities and meet with the members of the organization. Visitors are not always high-draft picks like Maye. Last year’s visitors to Foxboro included first-round pick Christian Gonzalez and undrafted free agent T.J. Luther.

Drake Maye is the No. 1 quarterback on the Patriots Football Now rankings. He was selected by the Patriots at No. 3 overall in the seven-round mock draft posted here earlier this week.

Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy is expected in for a visit as well.

Stay turned for spotlights on all of these players, as well as others as they become known.
