    Every QB in the draft is a developmental project...it just gets lost in the media feeding frenzy.

    FINAL PRE-DRAFT CONTACT LIST, sorted by Position:

    Keep in mind that there are very likely to be a few prospects who are NOT on this list, with whom the Pats have had contact that's simply not yet been reported. We may actually hear a few during the Draft broadcasts when they're discussing a Pats' selection (e.g., "Patriots scouts formally interviewed this guy at Shrine Game practices, and BB attended his pro day and ran a couple of the workouts.")

    HAT TIP to @long distance for providing the "adds" and corrections that I'm incorporating here.

    ICYMI, here's an extensive list from the ProJo that includes a crap-tonne of info on which Pats honcho attended the pro days of various prospects. Caveat emptor, the implication is that the honcho was there specifically for that prospect. Unless said honcho had specific contact with the prospect, that's kind of an assumption.

    OTOH, I think they note a couple of workouts and formal interviews/meetings that aren't on my consolidated list (e.g., Dante Pettis at the Combine, James Daniels at his pro day, Da'Shawn Hand and Jaylen Samuels at the Senior Bowl). Could be meaningful, could also not be meaningful.

    A look at which prospects the Patriots are connected with

    Crossen was in for a visit, and it sounds like Bentley and Michel were as well. Maybe I misunderstood Caserio, but it sounds like most of the draftees had official contact. I think we did a good job of tracking the type of player they're interested in bringing on board.

    Pats probably met with everyone they drafted. They do their own scouting and are known to be thorough in the process. I would venture that they had contact with just about everyone who was draft eligible

    I'm sure they've been tracking a lot of these guys since HS. Another advantage to the continuity of not making wholesale changes to coaching and management every couple-three years.

    FWIW, apparently Berrios did not take an official visit; Chad O'Shea came to see him.
