    The third Horned Frog Bill Belichick has drafted in the last three years. . . .

    Not enormous, but he did well despite inconsistent QB play in the post-Red Rifle era.

    Welcome to the New England Patriots Josh Boyce

    According to Pro Football Weekly the 106 ranked player overall. 5'11 206 4.38 40.

    Production was hindered by the loss of the starting QB. Flashes playmaking ability and can work both inside and outside. Not a very good blocker.

    meh...at least it's a need...

    Guess BB didn't think he'd be around where he was projected in Rd 7....


    BB is really REACHING this year.....hope Josh can contribute....not sure who he replaces.....maybe PS candidate.

    Seems like a good pick. Is it true he ran his 4.38 40 time with a broken foot? If so this guy might be a stud. Bedard said his wonderlic was a 23 (2nd highest among receivers) which indicates some intelligence.

    Wow, the 2nd highest WR score was just 23? Ugh.

    PFW had him #106 overall.

    NFL.com had him rated as a 2nd or 3rd round pick.

    I like that he wrestled a ball away from a defender in the highlight reel. Also, you can see that there were times he had to wait for the ball to arrive.
    Should be an interesting target and with a good IQ score. Hopefully we'll be talking about the drafting of this guy and Dobson the same way we talk about Gronk & Hernandez. Remember, Bill struck out many times at TE before he got it right with our stud TEs.

    I guess so, those wide receivers are dummies. As Kontra said the Patriots under BB's highest has been Branch with a 26. He worked out fine. This guys got a good build I think he can play outside.

    Lindy's and Pro Football Draft Guide has Josh listed alot lower than 3rd round. It's the only 2 I used this year. Not into this year's draft like prior years.

    The proof will be in their play....

    As am I, it was time to shake things up.. what I really like about Dobson is he had no dropped balls, Boyce has a lot of upside, will see if he develops..

    Do not forget about Gronk, Hernandez and Ballard.. it gets more impressive.

    23 is not bad. RG3 had a 24. Brady had a 28.

    This guy is a solid pick in the 4th round as a competitor at the slot. He's got good hands and can run over people. The slot receiver just got much younger than Welker and much cheaper.

    Don't forget Edelman, Gronk, Ballard, Hernandez and Vereen.

    Is it legal to run a 10-receiver formation?

    Like when we were kids, somebody hikes standing sideways and everyone runs around screaming for the quarterback to throw them the ball.

    A 23 is pretty good for a WR…I think most of those guys get high fives for hitting the teens.

    Yes…just like that. Except we did not have any Peppers or Ngatas in my neighborhood.

    I wonder what Aaron Dobson's Wonderlic was.. He sounds very intelligent.

    OT: The two guys Ryan and Harmon, from Rutgers were both All Big East players, and
    both were Academic All Americans, too. I have no idea about Jamie Collins.

    I didn't say it was bad, just said it is kind of sad that out of all the players that play receiver 23 is the 2nd highest score. More from a basic intelligence stand point than anything, he'll be fine 23 is good enough indication that he has some smarts and can process this offense.

    Whoa…easy there, Tar Heel. You're putting Brady awfully close to Ryan Leaf/Jamarcus Russel territory.

    Jones 4.46, 6', 200
    Dobson 4.40, 6'3", 210
    Boyce 4.38, 5'11", 206

    MUCH faster and bigger bodied, just what the doctor ordered. I wish them all the best.

    I feel the need to apologize to all the people who were hoping that the Pats would draft 2 WR's this year and I called idiots for thinking that. You were right and I was wrong.

    It will be interesting to see how it works out. Still, personally I would have taken a shot a Alex Okafor. Maybe they thought it would be over kill with the Collins signing or they feel better about Bequette and Cunningham that most people here do. OTOH I don't think anyone is going to to figure out that Harmon pick though. ;)

    Boyce and Dobson both visited the Pats. Obviously they left quite an impression. Both are excellent playmakers with size and speed. Plus BB has already stated how smart Dobson is, obviously Boyce is pretty smart too if he had the second highest wonderlic score when it comes to receivers.

    Harmon likely plays safety better than Ebner.

    Boyce:

    Routes

    Boyce is very crisp on double moves, and he also has the guts to work the middle of the field without fear. His breaks tend to leave the corner a beat behind and create separation, although Boyce is faster with the ball in his hands than he is running routes.



    Hands

    Boyce is one of the better "hands catchers" in the draft. He is not exceptional and will body catch or double clutch at times, but his hands are certainly above average. Boyce can make catches outside of his frame and the occasional circus catch.
