Jacoby Brissett only had a handful of starts in his two seasons at the University of Florida.
But now, the rookie quarterback will be under a much bigger microscope.
The former Florida signal caller, who finished his career with two seasons as the starter at North Carolina State, is the next man up for the New England Patriots, who will play host to the Houston Texans tonight.
Brissett is being called into duty because Tom Brady still has two games left in his “Deflategate” suspension and Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a shoulder injury last week against Miami.
Out of Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens, Brissett battled with John Brantley and Jeff Driskel for playing time, appearing in 13 games in his two years with the Gators.
Along with Tyler Murphy, who went to Boston College, Brissett’s departure from Gainesville was amicable.
At N.C. State, Brissett passed for more than 2,600 yards in each of his junior and senior seasons. Coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots made Brissett a third-round pick in the draft.
The rookie will be forced into action into the bright lights tonight, with J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney looking to make his debut a forgettable one.
