Between the draft and signing UDFAs, the Patriots have added four new faces at corner and should be looking at some great competition this summer.
Cyrus Jones from Alabama is a player that would seem to be very much a Patriots target in the draft. He’s a versatile, productive player from a prestigious, successful program that has improved each year.
Zach Sanchez from Oklahoma is an undersized but very productive cornerback that would fit in with the Patriots man coverage scheme. A three-year starter for the Sooners since his red-shirt freshman season in 2013, he decided to forego his final season in Norman to enter the NFL Draft.
Jonathan Jones from Auburn is another track star/football player that is a standout solid cornerback who once won the national title in the 110-meter hurdles. Jones isn’t the biggest guy at 5’9, 186 pounds but he’s fast and ran a blistering 4.33 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.
Artie Burns from Miami is a kind of under-the-radar player despite playing for the “U” He’s a supremely talented athlete who ran track as well as playing football. Posessing ideal size at 6’0 and 193 pounds, he has the frame to add some weight without losing any of his athleticism
What the Patriots would really like is an upgrade at the RCB position and move Ryan into the slot. Bill Belichick loves his veterans on the defense and would like to bring in a veteran presence and allow the others to compete and sort out the rest.
“It’s a craft,” Brown said of playing corner. “You gotta be able to study and be a student of the game. It’s not just about athletic ability anymore.
As first reported by NESN’s Doug Kyed, the New England Patriots released cornerback Rashaan Melvin and tight end Joseph Fauria.
The Patriots released 10 players on Friday with LB James Morris being the only true surprise. The team also signed CB Justin Coleman who was waived by Minn.
