News Blitz 2/7: Could the Patriots draft Texas Tech TE Jace Amaro?
"Amaro was a yards-after-catch monster in college, lining up in the slot most of the time and creating nightmares for linebackers and safeties," notes Farrar.
"Wilson has essentially become a core special teams player, making taking him in the second round last season look like a reach," writes Yates. "He doesn't have the requisite reactive athleticism to play as a deep, middle-of-the-field safety."
Frank Schwab of YAHOO! Sports shares his "Premature 2014 NFL Power Rankings." He puts the Patriots at No. 4 on the list.
"Give a 12-4 team Rob Gronkowski, Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo and others back, and you think they'll be worse? They do need to figure out a way to get free-agent cornerback Aqib Talib back," adds Schwab.
Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald takes an in-depth look at the Patriots key free agents, with CB Aqib Talib leading the way.
"If the Pats want him at three years and $21 million and Talib wants four years and $32 million, look for a compromise of three years, games-played incentives worth an extra $2 million and All-Pro incentives that help the deal approach about $25 million, so long as the cornerback market doesn’t unexpectedly tank like last year," writes Howe.
