With the Patriots expected to draft a quarterback in April's draft, many are trying to connect the team to who fits best.

One name who hasn't been mentioned much is Marshall's Chase Litton, who apparently is receiving a lot of interest from New England.

According to's Tony Pauline, the Patriots are among several teams who Litton is receiving a lot of interest from. Other teams include the Cowboys, Redskins and Browns.

Litton had his pro day Thursday where he threw 75 scripted passes and only three hit the ground.

Last week at the NFL combine, Litton was asked what it would be like working with Tom Brady and if there would be any intimidation factor.

"No, you're learning from the greatest of all-time for a reason," he said. "Everything he's done as a player on and off the field. ... Again, how he handles himself off the field and his preparation is something that you have to go in there and be a sponge. You have to do everything he does, and not because that is what people want you to do, but because that is the standard. There's a reason he's won all these MVPs. There's a reason he's won five rings.

"To be around a guy like that would be a blessing."

Litton was a three-year starter at Marshall and is entering the draft after his junior season. This past fall he completed 60 percent of his passes for 3,115 yards with 25 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
