Watch Bill Belichick deliver news to QB Jarrett Stidham that Patriots are drafting him


The Patriots turned some heads when they drafted Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham in the fourth round on Saturday.

While it remains to be seen whether Stidham will be Tom Brady's heir apparent, it's a special day for the 22-year-old. Stidham will get the chance to learn under arguably the best quarterback and head coach in NFL history. Though he won't get the chance to start right away, he's undoubtedly put in a position to succeed.

Stidham got his first taste of what it's like working with Belichick during his draft call. Watch the New England head coach inform Stidham that the Patriots were selecting him in classic Belichick fashion:

Not exactly the emotion we saw from some of the Patriots' draft choices in the last couple days, but cool to see nonetheless.

Stidham joins Brady, Brian Hoyer, and Danny Etling on the Pats' quarterback depth chart.
