New England Patriots

5 Patriots/NFL Things to Know -News & Notes 4/27

By: Ian Logue

Greg Bedard of Boston Sports Journal posted his Mock Draft, with Utah LB Devin Lloyd coming up as his choice for the New England Patriots with the 21st overall selection. Bedard equates him to former San Francisco 49er Fred Warner, as well as former Colts LB Darius Leonard, noting that while Lloyd’s 40 number wasn’t great (4.66), it was actually similar to what both Jamie Collins and Dont’a Hightower each put up coming out of college.

The Athletic posted their staff mock draft Wednesday morning and their's certainly feels a little more Belichick-ian. They have the Patriots trading back twice in round one, with the club ultimately ending up with Clemson's Andrew Booth Jr.

According to reports, Former Patriots DT Vince Wilfork's son, D'Aundre Holmes-Wilfork recently pleaded guilty to stealing not just the rings but other "prized possessions" from his dad, but it sounds like he won't be facing any jail time.

According to The Draft Network's Justin Melo, New England met with Nevada wide receiver Romeo Doubs for the 3rd time recently, with the Patriots having also previously met with him at both the Sr. Bowl and the NFL Combine.

Michael Bruton of Bleacher Report made an interesting suggestion in his column yesterday where he believes that the Patriots and Jaguars should strike a deal to send Isaiah Wynn to Jacksonville in exchange for this year's 4th-round pick, allowing New England to turn the page on a player who has been a little inconsistent and may not be their left tackle of the future.
