News Blitz 4/30: Is Iowa TE C.J. Fiedorowicz a perfect Patriot?

Posted Apr 30, 2014

The Patriots.com News Blitz gets you up-to-date on the latest Patriots news from local and national media.

Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com calls Iowa TE C.J. Fiedorowicz one of his "10 perfect Patriots" and projects him to be a third round draft choice.

"He has good size, was well schooled in college playing for a team coached by former Bill Belichick assistant Kirk Ferentz, and he was among the team's pre-draft visitors to Gillette Stadium as part of the club's 30 in-house visits," writes Reiss. "Some tight ends are really just bigger receivers, but Fiedorowicz is more of a pure tight end who could factor into the blocking and pass-catching mix." READ MORE>>

Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald believes Notre Dame DT Stephon Tuitt is a player who could land with the Patriots and help bolster the defensive line.

"Whether Vince Wilfork (achilles) and or Tommy Kelly (knee) are able to return at full strength or not, the Pats still need bigger bodies in the middle of the defensive line," adds Guregian. "They can't continue to get pushed around like last season after that duo was lost. Tuitt has a ton of raw ability and he's also versatile, able to play tackle or end. When he's on, he's a dominant player who could rotate in anywhere on the line." READ MORE>>

Christopher Jason of MassLive.com calls USC WR Marqise Lee a playmaker who would fit well in Josh McDaniels' offense.

"I also think his tough mindset, leadership (team captain) and his ability to play special teams would attract Bill Belichick," adds Jason. "He may not pass the eye test to play the outside but could be a good compliment to the receiving core and he most certainly has the talent to compete or beat out some of the other receivers on the roster."

Tom E. Curran of CSNNE.com calls Stanford OLB Trent Murphy a potential second or third round fit for the Patriots.

"The length, intelligence, versatility and three-cone speed of Murphy definitely makes him an intriguing prospect," writes Curran. "Would be a very nice complement in the defensive end rotation and could be a successor one day to Rob Ninkovich if he can get a little stronger up top. It will be interesting to see how much impact this player – who seems very underrated given his production and measurables – develops in the NFL." READ MORE>>

Doug Kyed of NESN.com writes that Washington State's Deone Bucannon is the best fit for the Patriots among this year's safety draft class.

"Bucannon’s a big hitter with tremendous ball skills," notes Kyed. "He has a tendency to go for the big hit rather than the wrap-up tackle at times, however. Bucannon has the athleticism to play free safety, but he also is physical enough to play in the box." READ MORE>>
