If he's still there, would the Patriots dare take Howell as a Stidham replacement and eventual backup to Jones?

I wonder if Strong is going to play the Bolden role this year. Special teams needs an injection of youth and speed. I haven’t seen anything noting his special teams ability other than getting “Scout Special Teams Player of the Week” once in his redshirt season, which is quite the participation trophy award if I have ever heard of one.

Does this draft speak to BB's confidence in McGrone and Perkins?
Don't know about Perkins but we can read nothing into McGrone being redshirted. They knew that was going to be the case headed into the draft. They got him in the 5th, but he was projected to be a much higher pick (absent his injury).

In the transition away from McDaniels, is there greater value in keeping Hoyer in the room versus looking for the down the road backup? Just a thought...

There's an interesting group of players on the NE defense that might be poised to make an impact next year: McGrone, Jennings, Uche, McMillan, and Perkins. It would be amazing if even two of them popped.

That said...I'd really love a good DL and LB in this draft please.

Hoyer's going to be on the coaching staff sooner rather than later

I feel like the Pats may start trading back into 2023 more and more if anyone will bite...stronger draft next year

??? I thought because of COVID delays, this year's draft was very deep.

I agree if he wants it, but there are times that as a player he can be working out and interacting with the other QBs when a coach is not allowed to. Maybe less so now that Covid rules would be expected to be less impactful.

This is why I don't get why these guys didn't get more snaps last year. You're going to give a lot of play time to a lot of young players simultaneously when the opportunity was there to get at least some of them more acclimated to a bigger role.

BB just picking names out of a hat at this point.

The Punt God is one of the fastest players, too? But I imagine he won't have to run down & tackle return men if he's kicking the ball 70 yards away.
