Should the Patriots draft Trey Lance on Thursday night, it likely will take some time for the dual-threat quarterback to develop a strong grasp of the team’s offense.
But when it comes to handling the media the way New England prefers, Lance already might be well up to speed.
Lance on Wednesday appeared on the “Rich Eisen Show” for a pre-draft interview. As any host would, Eisen tried to gather inside details on Lance’s virtual visits and conversations with teams leading up to the draft. The North Dakota product, however, kept things very close to the vest.
Such was the case when Lance was talking about his new partnership with Sleep Number. When Eisen asked about Bill Belichick’s sleep IQ score, Lance refused to take the bait.
“I actually never said that I have talked to Bill Belichick,” Lance said, drawing a huge laugh from Eisen and his crew. “You’re getting closer. Keep shooting.”
The Patriots clearly are intrigued by Lance, who had New England representatives at both of his pro days. But he might prove to be out of New England’s reach, as the San Francisco 49ers reportedly are torn between Lance and Mac Jones for the third overall pick.
