15. New England Patriots: Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech
The Patriots watched the mass exodus of big-name players happen in 2020 with very little in terms of a knee-jerk response.
The Patriots waited until two months after the 2020 NFL Draft to sign Cam Newton to a very modest contract.
They didn’t rush to make a move to get a big-time receiver at tight end. The Patriots calmly utilized the 2020 NFL Draft to replenish some key areas of their roster and make plans for the future of the squad.
They will continue that in the 2021 NFL Draft, no doubt.
At 6-foot-2, 207 pounds, Caleb Farley is certainly one of the most physically gifted athletes at cornerback in the 2021 NFL Draft crop. He’s also known for being one of the most athletic.
Farley made Bruce Feldman’s “freaks” list after clocking over 24 miles per hour in an actual game last season.
That is some insane speed for a corner of this size.
