So , who have we had in for to 30 visits so far that we know of?

T: Penning
G: Johnson and Green
CB: Booth, McDuffie, M Jones and J Jones
S/CB: Hill

I know there are over 20 we don't know about but certainly seems like we are eyeing up OL and CB.

Yeah, he's pretty explosive, but he's old (for a rookie) and banged up. I don't see him making it, although I wouldn't be averse to kicking the tires as an UDFA
The only comparison I have to go on is Edelman, and his measurables were pretty spectacular for a potential slot receiver. King not so much, but I haven't seen any tape, so I can't judge (not like I'd be able to even after watching it). Just pro day numbers:

40​

Edelman
1.52​
4.52​
6.62​

Sorry for not updating this recently everyone, haven’t been very well.

Thanks to everyone else though who have been updating this thread, as of when we are getting new prospects being looked into.

I saw James Cook, RB Georgia is visiting us this week
i feel like he would be a sneaky good pick if we could get him with our 3rd round pick. Not only as a long-term replacement for White, but he could become an immediate weapon in the passing game. There are so many ways he could be used in the passing game that he would almost make the need to draft another wide receiver this year a moot point.
If the Pats go defense with their 1st and 2nd round picks, and Metchie, Robinson and Shakir are all off the board at 85, Cook would be a much better addition IMO than any WR left on the board.
He is generally rated around 100 on most big board's i have looked at so he could very well be there when we pick at 85.
Are my expectations for this guy too high?

As a weapon.....:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

But at only 190 lbs and scouting reports of being a weak pass blocker, not sure how much love BB might show.

The 3rd down RB, while certainly not an after thought in the league, offers tremendous value given the impact they can have on the field and the lower wages they command.
Bill loves to exploit value.

Cook: Future Jack of All Trades....including "slot weapon" ?
From the highlights, his separation at the LOS is legit

For completeness, here is a website that’s keeping track of all the official visits. Doesn’t have today’s supposed 3 visits I posted above (at the moment).

Patriots digging deep as always! RB Mataeo Durant (Duke) will be meeting with them on Thursday but it's not considered a Top-30 visit.


"Durant is a 5-foot-11, 196 pound running back ... He took home All-ACC honors in 2021 after posting 1,497 all purpose yards with 11 total scores. That came one year after he was named team MVP by Duke for his 924 yard season in 2020.

Viewed as a possible kick returner and special teams player at the next level, it’s no wonder why the Patriots would choose to take an extra look at him."

Hmmm, only one WR, Metchie. And I am not too keen on Metchie (of course, what do I know?). Does this mean that they feel they are all set with WRs? Gawd. Or could this be the old Patriots pre-draft rope-a-dope?

Or could this mean that since they were fooled by the Harry interview into making one of the worst first round picks in the Patriots history that they have decided to minimize WR interviews, yuck, yuck...or since almost all the good WRs are prima donnas and BB hates prima donnas, someone has decided to cut down on these interviews and evaluate the WRs based on things like: Can they get open?

Would be interesting if we wound up with Mike Vrabel’s kid.



It was mentioned in a very recent article, but Jakobi and EJ Perry tested very similarly:

Any reason why your not a fan of Metchie?

I like him a lot for everything except his ability to get open. He does not show an elite ability to get open or run away from CBs. Granted these are SEC CBs but he will face tougher CBs in the NFL. Also consider that he was up against second tier CBs because the top CBs were watching Waddle or Jameson. He has a lot of good intangibles but I like tangible stuff like the ability to get open and good hands. I would not draft him before round 6 or 7 but he will be gone by then.

Metchie seems like a great guy and a good teammate for Mac, but we do not need another boy scout who cannot get open.

I'm not a fan of Metchie before the 3rd, too many drops, too much of a body catcher. But seperation is one of his strengths, if not his biggest strength. He gets open quick.

I watched some more highlights and you might be right. I am being too harsh; he can get open, bu the is not scary fast like Waddle or Jameson Williams. Yea, maybe 3 is where he is drafted....

I like that the Patriots draft group is looking at kids from big-time programs who have a record of success. However, what's the fixation with Arizona State?

Lucas and Butler shouldn't be on that list. The Patriots sent somebody to meet with them in Arizona, as opposed to bringing them to Foxborough for a top 30 visit. Jones was a top 30 visit, presumably to thoroughly discuss his long list of red flags.
