Keene is former quarterback and running back who bulked up and was moved to tight end. He has tight size at 6-4 253 but with a running back skill set. He was a bit of a reach as a third rounder but that is my opinion. The Patriots obviously rated him higher on their board. Here is a scouting report on Dalton Keene. Hands: Keene has soft hands and he…

The Patriots drafted tight end Devin Asiasi out of UCLA with a third round pick. Asiasi has decent size at 6-3 257.

At 6-2 256, Jennings is built as an on line outside linebacker but he can also play as a stack linebacker in certain fronts. Here is my scouting report on Jennings. Vs. Inside Run: Jennings is strong at the point…

Uche is an explosive pass rusher who can play on the line or as a stack linebacker. Here is my linebacker scouting report on Uche. Vs. Inside Run: Uche hasn’t played a lot of stack linebacker in his career so he doesn’t have a lot of experience taking on second level…
