    Looking at the Patriots - 2019

    Maybe team doctors told Bill & his staff that Michel's knee is not in a good condition, but he should be able to play out his rookie contract. And if you value the running back position highly (which is another debate for itself), you can spent a 1st round pick on a banged up player if you think...

    Getting Cooper Kupp back should be huge for the Rams offense. Also, it will be interesting to see how they manage Gurley with all the concerns about his long term health.

    Patriots Weaknesses

    I don't think Pro Football Focus adjusts its grades for competition. Gant might have 'led all draft-eligible FBS safeties with at least 400 defensive snaps played in overall grade (90.7) in 2018. He also ranked second in run-defense grade (90.1) and fourth in coverage grade (89.4)'. But Gant was...

    NFL Draft Day 3 rounds 4-7

    Froholdt can play center or guard. Could be a backup for all three interior OL positions this year and take over for Joe Thuney in 2020, if the Patriots lose Thuney in free agency next year.

    Hopefully Hogan makes the Panthers' roster. That would net the Patriots one more compensatory picks. A 6th rounder in 2020 for the loss of Patterson.

    2019 Draft Prospects

    It's just group of five = AAC, C-USA, MAC, MWC and Sun Belt.

    Looking at the Patriots - 2019

    Maybe the team will look to draft an upgrade over Elandon Roberts who's likely your 4th linebacker on the team right now. Not sure Tre Lamar would be one though. He has good size for the position, but didn't test well at Clemson's pro day and is described as a limited athlete in space in...

    He can sling it. Very good thrower on the move and underrated as a runner. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="de"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Look at this ball.. <a href=""></a></p>— (@SpreadOffense) <a...

    Lions and Titans. We might get to see joint practices again.

    2019 Draft - WR Prospects The Patriots Way

    What stands most out to me is Boykins blocking. He's very aggressive, looks for a target to block and can bully defensive backs. As a receiver, he seems to struggle to create separation consistently. A guy with his numbers should be able to create more space which suggests to me that he's not...

    Random Football News

    Just took a quick look at this years compensatory picks. The value of a comp pick in the sixth round was between $4 million and $5 million per year. The value of a comp pick in the 5th round was between $7.4 million and $ 5.95 million. Sorry, but Jordan Howard is not getting that kind of money...

    Looking at the Patriots - 2019

    If a team trades for Josh Rosen, the Cardinals would still be on the hook for his signing bonus, right? His new team would only have to pay his base salary and roster bonuses. The cap hit over the next three years would be pretty low: $1,279,898 in 2019 $2,079,796 in 2020 $2,879,694 in 2021

    Gronk Retires

    The free agent market for tight ends looks like a wasteland. It looks like the Patriots will have to trade for a veteran tight end if they want to add a decent one.
