After releasing quarterback Cody Kessler last week, the Patriots seem to be in a position to select one in the NFL Draft later this month.

Listen to your team news NOW.

And that could come really any point in the draft.

One player the team is taking a close look at is Florida International quarterback James Morgan. According to multiple reports, the Patriots held a video conference with Morgan recently. The Packers, Bears, Colts, Raiders, Giants, Bills, Jets and Dolphins have also reportedly showed interest.

Morgan would likely be a late-round selection, but it is very possible to have someone like him join Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer for training camp.

As a team captain last fall, he threw for 2,585 yards and 14 touchdowns, which added to his career FIU total of 40 -- the second-most all-time in program history.
