April 21, 2021

The Patriots may or may not be running the 3-4 this season. The signings of Davon Godchaux and Matthew Judon suggest that they maybe shifting back to a 30 front. Regardless of what they are doing, the Patriots need to get bigger inside if they are going to do a better job of stopping the run. McNeil profiles more as a 3-4 nose tackle or a 2i in the 4-3….

April 21, 2021

The Patriots love versatility, especially on defense. They want guys that can play as many positions as possible and play every down if possible. Baron Browning can be that type of player. He can line up as a stack linebacker on first and second down and come off the edge on third down. He is athletic and can match up in coverage as well. Browning is raw and needs refinement…

April 21, 2021

We all know Bill Belichick’s affinity for cornerbacks. Belichick has always been a trends guy. He understands that spread offenses have taken over the NFL. He knows he needs to match up in sub packages so he has emphasized drafting cornerbacks and safeties in recent years. While Belichick has missed at the position (Dowling, Dawson, Wheatley etc.) he has also nailed the position in the draft. Just think of the…

The Patriots have drafted well along the offensive line during Bill Belichick’s tenure. With ten picks in this draft, do not be surprised if they do what they did in last year’s draft and draft a couple of more offensive lineman. Trent Brown is on a one year deal, Isaiah Wynn needs to have his fifth year option picked up and Shaq Mason’s cap number in 2022 is $10.2 million…

April 20, 2021

Davis Mills has gone from relative obscurity to one of the most talked about prospects in this draft class. Mills was a five star recruit out of Greater Atlanta Christian in 2016. He had one of the most decorated high school careers of any quarterback in recent history. However, upon arriving at Stanford, Mills found himself backing up K.J Costello. When he got the opportunity to play in 2019, he…

Felton is a hybrid running back, wide receiver who can impact a game in a myriad of ways. After an up and down career at UCLA, Felton put himself on the map with a great week of practice at the Senior Bowl. Front office executives and scouts alike got to see his tantalizing skill set on full display. When you look at Felton, think of a more explosive version of…

Patriots Draft: 60 Players in 60 Days: Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

April 19, 2021

We all know Bill Belichick’s track record when it comes to drafting wide receivers. We do not need to revisit that. Jaylen Waddke however could change that narrative if he dropped to the Patriots at 15 and they drafted him. Waddle is arguably the most explosive playmaker in this class. That’s saying a lot considering teammate Devonta Smith and Florida’s Kadarius Toney are in this draft among others. Of course…

Patriots Draft: 60 Players in 60 Days: Jayson Oweh, OLB, Penn State

April 18, 2021

The Patriots beefed up their pass rush in free agency signing free agents Matthew Judon and Kyle Van Noy but other than those two and Chase Winovich, they still lack that elite level pass rusher who can contribute in sub packages. Oweh could be that player for them. At 6-4 257, he has the length and the size to play either outside linebacker or defensive end depending on down and…

Patriots Draft: 60 Players in 60 Days: Jay Tufele, DT, USC

April 18, 2021

The Patriots have struggled to stop the run the past two seasons and despite addressing the defensive line in free agency, they could use a more depth inside at defensive tackle and nose tackle. Enter Tufele who at 6-3 305, has good size and can play either in a shade or head up on an offensive lineman. He is quick off the snap and can be disruptive. On paper, he…

Patriots Draft: 60 Players in 60 Days: Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State

April 15, 2021

I wasn’t originally going to do a scouting report on Fields because I didn’t think the Patriots were going to be in position to draft him. Well, that is still the case but Josh McDaniels and Dave Ziegler did attend his second workout today and their is growing speculation that New England is strongly entertaining a move up. Who knows if that is true or not but the Patriots do…
