The New England Patriots are arguably the hardest team to project when it comes to the NFL Draft. Last year’s Mac Jones selection might be the easiest Bill Belichick pick to predict ever. Now, back to business as usual of throwing blind darts and hoping to find something.
One thing that could be something to consider for the Patriots is a ranging linebacker like Devin Lloyd. A tremendous athlete, Lloyd plays an undervalued position in the NFL which will cause him to fall. However, his talent is off the charts. Seems like a pick Belichick would make.
The Patriots added Mack Wilson from Cleveland, but Lloyd is a better player and can take over the role once played by Dont’a Hightower.
At some point the Green Bay Packers have to add weapons for Aaron Rodgers to throw to right? RIGHT? This seems like a point we bring up every year, yet the problem is never addressed. Maybe this is the year with Davante Adams no longer with the team, it will be.
Drake London is a huge target at 6-foot-5 and has the potential to become a really great player. He’s been placed among the comparisons of Mike Evans and Brandon Marshall with his best fit being a vertical offense. If there’s one thing Rodgers knows how to do better than anyone else, it’s the Hail Mary deep ball. London could find himself on the receiving end of a lot of those with his height and skill set.
