20191223_NewsBlitzNike_2500x1406

Bernd Buchmasser of PatsPulpit breaks down wide receiver Denzel Mims, an appealing draft prospect with excellent size and athleticism. It's no surprise Mims is making a push in mock drafts to the Patriots. Evan Lazar of CLNS Media takes a look at a few potential quarterback options - Jake Fromm, Jacob Eason and Jalen Hurts.

Mike Reiss of ESPN takes a look at new Patriots linebacker Brandon Copeland and how he's taken to a webinar for talks with NFL players about financial planning and responsibility. Copeland continues to show why he's a good off-field fit in New England.

Andrew Callahan dropped a full seven-round mock draft with familiar face Kenneth Murray being taken at 23rd overall. Murray continues to be one of the most popular Patriots mock picks at that spot.

Tom E. Curran reports we can put those Julian Edelman trade rumors to bed. While Edelman could be a trade asset, his value to the team and financial numbers make it unlikely that the team would try to jettison him. A quick-open receiver like him should be the best friend to a new quarterback.

Speaking of receivers, Zach Cox of NESN has Jarrett Stidham and N'Keal Harry figuring out how to connect this offseason. That could be a vital combination this season and with training camp likely to be truncated, getting on the same page quickly will be vital. Meanwhile Darren Hartwell of NBC Sports Boston breaks down who ended up being Tom Brady's all-time favorite receivers.
