    The Pats are loaded with six picks in the last 2 rounds of the draft (3 in 6th & 7th round)

    The Patriots have done well in late round picks and UDFA in recent years.

    Who do you think the Pat’s are eyeing in the late rounds?

    I believe a key to our success with UDFA is the fact that Belichick values training camp performance over what round you were drafted.

    I have read that the Pats are interested in
    Florida International QB James Morgan

    NFL Rumors: New England Patriots Eying To Draft Florida International Quarterback

    The Cowboys are also interested in Morgan, so I am not exactly sure how late he will go.

    Drafttek has him rated the 13th QB pick 239 overall.

    I like the idea of drafting this guy & having him as our 3rd QB this year & see how he
    Develops.

    He is 6’4” athletic with a strong arm, but he is thin 213 lbs.

    The Pats did a zoom/Skype interview with him already.

    Here is his 2019 Highlights

    Should be a solid lb backup with his ability to play against run and pass. He has his limitations esp athletic and two knee injurys which hurt his draft stock but should be good value pick in the later rounds. Also team captain if I remember right.

    I was hoping to find more interest in this subject given the opportunity for great value had by the Pats.

    I am just getting into this myself and so I only have a few guys that I really like. They may or may not get drafted, but I would hope they get strong consideration.

    Tyler Huntley QB Utah. Kid looks like a poor man's Kyler Murray IMO. Granted that is just from watching highlights. I'm willing to give Stidham a shot, but it couldn't hurt to take a flier on a guy late. He might even be a Taysom Hill type.

    Tavien Feaster RB South Carolina. Is Damien Harris soft? Who knows, but RB is a position that is all about the next man up. That said we can never have enough depth there. He's of similar build and yet he has not been run into the ground in college.

    Trajan Bandy CB Miami. Solid tackler. We know all too well how much that is needed in the secondary.

    There are a couple of late round prospects I really like.

    TE- Stephen Sullivan- LSU
    Didn’t have much production at LSU but showed his talent at the Senior Bowl. He has good length and is an excellent athlete he just lacks the bulk to be an in-line TE. He has shown good effort as a blocker though so if he can add some size he could be even more valuable. I see him as a Darren Waller type TE that can use his length and athleticism to create mismatches.

    TE- Matthew Wilkerson- Edward Waters College
    This is a weak TE draft and in particular it lacks many TE’s with good size. At 6-6 270 and supposedly running in the 4.7’s, Wilkerson might have the best size/athleticism combination in the draft. He is very raw having split his time between TE and DE for a very small school but his ceiling is very high. I would love to grab him in the 7th and hope with NFL coaching he can develop into a well rounded NFL player.

    WR- Darnell Mooney- Tulane
    We obviously need to add offensive weapons and Mooney is electric. I would love to add a Raegor/Ruggs type guy early but if we can’t then Mooney is a nice consolation. He ran a 4.38 40 at the combine, can take the top off a defense or take a slant to the house with his speed. Ideally we could pair him with a more well rounded WR early on like Bryan Edwards and it would be a huge boost to our offense.

    DT- John Penisini- Utah
    His teammate Leki Fotu might get most of the attention but I prefer Penisini. I think he has a better anchor and is a better fit as a base NT against the run. He won’t add much as a pass rusher but he just eats double teams and plays with a big motor and great effort. I think Big John Stud is one of the most underrated guys in the draft.

    I really like these 3 as well. I wonder if the upside of Coulter gets him into the top 100. Bit if we don't grab a WR in the first 2 days and hes there in the 4th, Id be on board. We need something other than slot type WR's, and he brings solid size with his speed. Having guys like Edelman and Sanu around to learn from would be beneficial.

    Keane .... I wonder what he played at. He looks so lean at Tech, but tops 250 at the combine. He looked like 235 on the field, so i wonder if the official weigh in accounts for some added bulk that he desperately needs/needed. Love the skills and versatility. But he'll go as far as that bulk/strength can get him.

    Taylor seems like someone the Pats would like, along the Solder/Vollmer/McDermott body type. Tremendous length, and he happens to have the standout athletixism as well. All developmental though. Well worth a day three pick on sheer upside.

    I saw Darnell Mooney just mentioned as well. I like him a lot. He is more aware and more polished than the typical speed guy. Needs to be more consistent catching the ball, but he brings the speed we need. Id actually be just fine with him with one of our late thirds.
