    A source tells ESPN.com's AFC East blog that New England recently held a private workout with Valdosta State offensive tackle Ryan Schraeder. He is a big and athletic small-school prospect who has the potential to develop with the right coaching. Schraeder, who is listed at 6-foot-7 and 304 pounds, is considered a sleeper because of his lack of experience.

    Schraeder has an interesting story. He grew at an enormous rate in high school and college, but didn't play organized football until three years into college.

    He played one year at Butler community college and one year at Division II Valdosta State -- and that was enough to get noticed. In addition to the Patriots, Schraeder also worked out with the Atlanta Falcons.​

    Amazing to think that he would probably be the Patriots' smallest tackle‚ÄĒby a wide margin. :)

    Interesting and anticipated.
    Boyce is a value round receiver who meets 4/5 of BB's athletic parameters which is very rare (makes me feel more confident about my thinking of the type WR BB likes). Physically he's identical to Quinton Patton but is faster, stronger and quicker than Patton. Patton satisfies only 3/5 of the athletic parameters BB likes and it seems BB requires 4/5 for consideration. As I posted in the WR thread, Boyce would be an excellent later round compliment for the Pats. I'm not suggesting Boyce is on Patton's level as receiver just yet. Boyce's QB deficiencies limited him greatly the last 2 seasons and his technical skills still need development. TB will take care of the former and coaching the latter. But make no mistake, Boyce has the physical ability to become a game breaker. What he lacks that Patton has is the ability to make catches in tight spaces; if he can show more skill making those plays, Boyce, a value pick in the later rounds, could end up better than Patton and a huge bargain.

    Boyce, 6', 203, 4.38 40; 4.1 ss; 6.68 3 cone; 34 v; 22 reps
    Patton, 6', 204, 4.53 40; 4.01 ss; 6.91 3 cone; 33 v; 8 reps

    Interesting that after the Svitek/Vollmer signings they're still looking at RT prospects - and these strike me as RT's rather than OG converts.

    Jordan is very interesting. Either the draftnics have over inflated his value, this is purely a due dilligence visit with little hope of happening or there's something in the works that we haven't seen here before in the BB era.

    With Jordan being a fairly unique NFL prospect and the Bills, Jets and Dolphins all picking in the top 12, I suspect it's probably nothing more than a little (future) opposition research.

    I think that it is a good sign for the Pats that they are going to upgrade that 4-3 WLB spot because of the number of pass defense sub-packages that they run since Jordan, Ogletree and Gooden have met with or have had private workouts with the Pats. Sio Moore and Arthur Brown are two other candidates for that positional slot. To me, it is clear that they don't want Spikes and to a lesser extent Hightower covering Ray Rice and Dennis Pitta in a big game again.
