Patriots Draft: Scouting Report on QB Jarrett Stidham

April 28, 2019

The Patriots drafted another quarterback and the question will be asked around New England. Is this Tom Brady’s successor? No one knows but what we do know is, Stidham is the fourth quarterback the Patriots have drafted in the last five years. Jimmy Garoppolo, Jacoby Brissett and Danny Etling are the others.

Patriots Draft: Scouting Report on OT Yodny Cajuste

April 27, 2019

West Virginia offensive tackle Yodny Cajuste was taken with pick 101. It was a compensatory pick at the end of third round. At 6-5 312, Cajuste has a lot of upside physically but he is also one of the most frustrating players in this draft in that he runs hot and cold and can be inconsistent. Here is our scouting report on Yodny Cajuste. Yodny Cajuste, West Virginia, 6-5 312…


Patriots Draft: Scouting Report on RB Damien Harris

April 27, 2019

The Patriots surprisingly drafted Harris with pick 87 in the third round. On paper, the Patriots are deep at the running back position with Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden. The Patriots won’t carry six running backs plus a fullback so you would have to think that one of the back currently on the roster would be the odd man out with Harris in the mix. Here…


Patriots Draft: Scouting Report on DE Chase Winovich

April 27, 2019

The Patriots drafted Michigan defensive end Chase Winovich with pick 77 of the third round. At 6-3 256, Winovich is quick off the snap and plays with a motor. It is overstated at times but Winovich is your prototypical Patriot. He can play multiple roles and is a team first player. Here is our scouting report on Winovich. Chase Winovich, Michigan, 6-3 256 Player Comp: Brooks Reed Vs. Run: Winovich…
