    I kept track of the regular season roster moves during the regular season.. I've been asked to do the same this season and I'm willing to take up the challenge. Hopefully, a mod will see fit to sticky this thread so that we don't have to keep searching for it if it goes off the top page..

    I'm including a link to the current Patriots roster as that is why I'm getting my info to start the thread as well as the Patsfans tracking of the UDFAs..

    Great job, DaBruinz.

    I suggest we add also Pats related players info - like we did last season.

    While Blount is still somewhat connected to NYG and DET and we don't know if Scruggs is even a real person, here first bit of news about Floyd:

    One would be pretty conflicted to be an UDFA on the Pats. On one hand, they always have a one or three that makes the roster, on the other hand, look who is ahead of them.

    4 drafted rookies have their numbers:


    DE Derek Rivers #95

    OT Antonio Garcia: #63

    DE Deatrich Wise Jr.: #91

    OT Conor McDermott: #67

    (previously worn by Long, Tre Jackson, Collins and Kline)


    here interesting bit ob Garcia's number:
    New England’s second selection, fellow third rounder Antonio Garcia, will wear 63 on his jersey – and become the first offensive tackle this century to wear it. Since 2000, number 63 has exclusively been worn by interior linemen: Joe Andruzzi (2000-2004), Dan Connolly (2008-2014) and Tre’ Jackson (2015-2016) were the last three players to don it.

    from PP article: Patriots rookie jersey numbers revealed


    good luck..

    Yeah, 60s are for guards and maybe centers. Wasted pick.

    There are spots available on this team (Fleming, Waddle, Lengel, Williams, Coleman,
    Richards, and Freeny) and only four draft picks to compete against.

    What are the chances that jacob hollister can make this team? Look's like a good athlete. Was a weapon for josh allen. Could gain a couple of more pounds without losing the 4.6 speed. Max Rich another guy who had a nice combine. Good height

    I would have figured that Wise and Rivers would have the opposite numbers. Not bad, though. Better than the 60s for the other players. Don't they know that fans want tight numbers? Real let down.

    Hollister is my binkie. He had quite a few downfield catches. He does not have
    world beaters for opposition. It all depends upon how he meshes with Brady.
    Can he get open and catch the ball?

    To make the roster

    Austin Carr was highly ranked by Pro Football focus as was Hollister. Amendola
    is not unexpendable but Carr has to get open and catch the ball.

    I thought Wise would be 95 and Rivers would be 91 as well (because Rivers was #11 in college). But it doesn't really matter to most people, and rookies don't get as much of a say in the matter. All I know is I correctly predicted all 4 of these except for those 2 were swapped, so there must be something to it.
