The writers of Patriots Football Weekly have come up with ten 2014 NFL Draft prospects they feel could be Patriots. Here they are in no particular order
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington – More of a traditional tight end with the size to contribute as a blocker and the hands to help as a receiver.
Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech – Smaller, more athletic tight end in the Aaron Hernandez mold. Even worked out of the backfield as a ball carrier like Hernandez.
Deone Bucannon, SS, Washington State – Hard-hitting safety would add some thump to the backline of the Patriots defense. Andy thinks he's the perfect fit.
Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State – The Patriots may not have been interested in acquiring DeSean Jackson but perhaps they'd be persuaded to draft a similar player in Cooks.
Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame – Mammoth run-stuffing defensive tackle with a blend of power and burst to perhaps replace Vince Wilfork.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State – Big, rangy red zone target on the outside who is capable to creating mismatches against smaller corners.
Dee Ford, DE, Auburn – Athletic edge rusher with the size and strength to hold up against the run. Was dominant in the BCS title game against Florida State.
Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri – Incredible athlete with great quickness and ability to get after the passer. Has drawn comparisons to Robert Quinn, which gets Andy all excited.
Calvin Pryor, FS, Louisville – Good size and athleticism with the closing speed to cover and physicality to make his presence felt in the middle of the defense.
Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota – Physical freak with the versatility to play all over the defensive line. Scouts consider him raw but are drooling over his potential.
