    Someone to watch for in the draft/UDFA if we bring in competition for Ghost:
    • Overall field goal percentage- 86.2% (25-29)
    • 40-49 yds- 77.8% (7-9)
    • 50+ yds- 80% (4-5)

    Does he play WR? With a last name like that, he would fit right in with the Pats’ WR corps.

    If Cannon does retire or we're simply trying to get ahead of the situation (Gronk!?) Wirfs is someone you want to know.

    Multiple sport athlete in HS. Wrestling background. Weight room monster. Versatile. + Hands, feet and strength. Plays like the athlete you see on paper. Quick, soft feet. Very flexible and easy moving/pivoting. Can stone and redirect in pass pro, some times with ease. Can make his way and work the 2nd level.

    Not many big holes in his game at all. He should be contributing very soon. + Zone/Gap prospect imo.

    Screams NEP.

    Right on cue ...

    I like him or Josh Jones as an athletic Pass Protector, . But I doubt Wirfs will fall down to 23 or that we use our first rounder for an OL when Cannon keeps playing..

    WR Kendall Hinton, Wake Forest

    Another QB to WR slot receiver displaying an upward trajectory, and a quick aptitude, after producing a +1k in his first full season at the position.

    At 6-0, 195lb, Hinton displayed physicality and good hands, ~ a 71% catch rate, capable of catching/finishing passes through contact in the slot while offering enough speed for versatility to play other WR positions; also a KR/PR.

    He wasn't invited to the draft combine, but should run in the 4.50s 40-yds time range at his pro day for an intriguing possible Edelman replacement in the later rounds of the draft, or as an UDFA.

    Brought up a few of these before. Deguara, Claypool, Perry, Gibson. CEH is an interesting one. So is Reed, really like him.

    Animal in the weight room and the work shows. Him and Becton are tearing up this combine. Their #'s are insane.










    Front/Back-side, the dude is an athletic monster. Would dominate and flourish in a zone/gap scheme

    I think Becton goes before Wirfs. Small chance either are there but its possible. Thomas too. I could see one being available. 15-25%, give or take.

    LOL Could see all going top 10 too.

    yes, I do. As a 5 technique, he has a chance to excel in our defense. On passing downs, he can slide inside next to butler and be a force.

    I've just started to dig into players but the ones I like for the Pats in the late first (23-32, as I assume we don't trade up) are:

    Justin Jefferson (primarily plays the slot, which we clearly need with Edelman. Plus the middle of the field is where Brady likes to operate. Not the most athletic guy but catches everything)
    Patrick Queen (fills that athletic LB role we have been missing - good blitzer too)
    Cesar Ruiz (he's probably more of a high 2nd but I would be interested if we traded down 15 spots. Depends on if Andrews comes back and what they think of Froholdt etc)
    Yetur Gross Matos (reminds me of Chandler Jones a bit. A little raw but has high upside and can bend the edge. Could add some weight. I prefer him to Epenesa)
    Xavier McKinney (love him. Perfect Chung replacement. Can play in the box and deep. Also apparently the Bama signal caller so has the intelligence to call the D when McCourty leaves)


    I may add to this list as I study more guys. I've also ruled out anyone who is obviously going above 23.

    Relative Athletic Score: Is it risky to select A.J. Epenesa in the 2020 Draft?

    A.J. Epenesa is a good football player, the biggest issue is determining what round in the draft to select him.
