    Looks like the Patriots are digging deep too.

    "Tuel had a great pro day, and I suspect that he will have a strong showing when he has a workout with the New England Patriots on March 22. Tuel will be joined by receiver Marquess Wilson at that workout, which will be held at the University of Idaho."

    Unfortunately can't link it but it's the Washington State Pro Day at NFL.com's Pro Day Blog.

    The other day and elsewhere, Dabruinz speculated that the Pats could be signing 10-20 UDFA's this year. It's interesting that they appear to be looking at a lot of UDFA types. Is this recruitment that they're doing?

    BTW, I didn't see it mentioned, but Marquess Wilson was told by WSU officials that he won't be allowed to participate at their Pro-Day.

    Marquess Wilson not welcome at Washington State pro day workout | ProFootballTalk

    (paraphrased) Tuel and Wilson were originally supposed to work out at Eastern Washington's Pro-Day, but an NCAA rule forbids larger schools from working out at smaller schools.

    I think Tuel was doing it to help out Wilson since Tuel was his QB until Wilson quite the team.

    Not sure I would call it recruitment. I would call it job interviews. No sense in signing the kids to contracts if you know ahead of time they aren't going to work out. It's part of the culling process, in my honest opinion.

    You're right of course and I'm unclear on how UDFA's are signed but the fact that it happens so quickly after the draft has finished suggests that there are agreements reached in principle pre-draft.

    I did read somewhere that as emphasis moves towards the FO and coaches in the evaluation process, scouts become much more involved in recruiting (and culling) UDFA's.

    Well with the new TC roster size of 90 players and the Pats only having 5 draft picks so far and 55 guys signed to the Roster before FA then that leaves 30 guys for UDFA's.

    Minus any FA's they sign so your looking at probably 25 at a minimum.

    We should pay attention to Dante pro day visits. So...

    Schrader is interesting at 6-7, 310 lbs and has pretty good movement skills. Yet another RT prospect we're looking at.

    I think a more accurate version is that no OL gets drafted early without the Scar seal of approval.

    After all, they did everything possible to keep Scar's visit to Nate Solder under the radar (in fact, Solder was scheduled to visit Foxboro, but they cancelled the visit).
