A Guide on Patriots UDFAs

-by memokerobi

Did some late night digging around on our UDFAs and ranked them with short reports on what I’ve read. I did not watch these players, its just a bit of research and compiling what I found but it should be useful. (The Pats had only unofficially signed these players at the time of writing so things could have changed.)Β (NOTE: They have changed, as reports have stated the Pats have also signed LSU RB Nick Brossette.)

1) Jakobi Meyers (WR): Had an early Day 3 grade from some analysts. Big slot receiver with solid route running who has very good hands and catches balls outside his frame. He’s a reliable and physical option over the middle which is always good for a QB. Not very quick or agile so that limits his upside, route running and YAC. But he came into college as a QB and switched to receiver, and 2018 was his first or second year as a receiver, so he definitely has room to grow. With some of the abilities of N’Keal Harry and the addition of Meyers, I think the Pats are definitely entertaining the idea of having a big guy lined up in the slot as a new wrinkle to the offense.

2) Malik Gant (SS): Gant was a top 100 player for more than three draft analysts that I follow and is the #1 UDFA safety for Gil Brandt. He’s not a prototypical Pats player with a 3-cone of 7.46 seconds. In fact, he tested quite terribly at the combine which is probably why he went undrafted. However, from what I’ve read he stands out on film and was a productive player at Marshall. Very physical player, good against the run, but not a liability in coverage, matching up well with TEs and our top-ranked player Jakobi in coverage. I think I’d have ranked him #1 if the rankings were based on who I think is most likely to make the team.

3) Calvin Anderson (T/G): Had a successful season at Texas after transferring over from Rice. His physical traits are very good. His problem is technique but he should have room for growth especially given that he only started for a year. Some have him as a guard. I’d call him an ideal practice squad candidate for Scar to work with to see if he can develop. If he can’t develop with Scar, I don’t think he can, ever πŸ™‚

4) Andrew Beck (TE): Primarily a strong blocking tight end who is physical and powerful in the run game. From what I understand, very limited in the passing game, only running shallow routes and targeted on short hitches, out routes, etc. and not a great catcher of the ball as well. However, as there is only another TE on the roster who is a better blocker than a receiver in Ryan Izzo, he may have a shortcut to the roster in a two-man battle. Or both get cut…

5) Xavier Ubosi (WR): Intriguing prospect. Has great size and speed for the WR position, suited to play the X receiver role. Whopping 23.9 yards per catch on 36 receptions, which led the FBS. However, the guy is 25 years old, so I don’t see a lot of room for development. He also ran a very limited route tree mostly consisting of go routes, so it’s probably “what you see is what you get” at this point. Still, he might be an exciting player to watch in the preseason.

6) Tyree St. Louis (T): Similar case to Calvin Anderson. Tackle prospect with good athleticism and measurables. Again, most of his struggles are due to technique. However, unlike Anderson, he’s been a two-year starter at right tackle and one-year starter at left tackle and still continued to struggle with his technique. Therefore I’d say there is less room for development, hence the lower ranking.

7) Ryan Davis (WR): Slot receiver from Auburn. Very good skills when he gets the ball in his hands. However, not a great ability to separate as a receiver. I think he was brought in to allow Stidham to have some familiarity for 3rd-team reps during preseason games and practice. He has good quickness and agility and can return punts though, so if he shows an outstanding ability there maybe he can be considered for a roster spot but it’s a looong shot.

8) Terez Hall (OLB): It was interesting to see the Pats agree to give a significant signing bonus to Hall. Physical linebacker who is solid against the run and plays fast on tape. However, from what I’ve read, he doesn’t show the football intelligence/instincts for the LB position. Combine that with the fact that he ran a terrible 40 in his pro day, and I don’t see much of a potential for him on defense or special teams. Will probably battle for a spot on the practice squad with the likes of Christian Sam and Calvin Munson.

9) Tyler Gauthier (C): Couldn’t find much info on the player besides the fact that he played center for Miami. I guess it’s a matter of finding someone to snap the ball to Etling/Stidham in practice and games and build at least a little cohesiveness in our 3rd OL group with his teammate St. Louis.

UDFA Calvin Anderson graduated from Rice with a degree in mathematical economics and then transferred to University of Texas Austin to get a Master of Finance and Science. He can solve a Rubik’s cube behind his back. Looks like Slater has some competition for biggest nerd in the locker room!

Trent Brown will play right tackle for the #Raiders, Jon Gruden says at his press conference. Kolton Miller on the left side. That’s a lot of money to pay a right tackle but Brown will see his share of good pass rushers on that side, such as Von Miller twice a year.

Gruden wants Carr to die a horrible death. At least he won’t see it coming.

Any legs on this Kyle Rudolph rumor?

Kerthwap
Member

Kerthwap

Apparently they shopped him during the draft… and didn’t get it done, which tells me they’re asking too much… which they should for their own interests. It’s one of those, they’re in no rush to make a deal because they have enough time on the contract. I’d imagine the next step is to wait until the trade deadline when teams are more desperate, and try again, unless someone overpays now. I just don’t see the Patriots getting impatient and overpaying.

Rudolph is a decent player, but there is no way a team will give up a 2nd for him. Especially with this being the last year of his contract.

At that low of a return, they might just decide to keep him, and hope they can make/advance in the playoffs a bit this year.

I don’t expect the trade to happen with NE, the Jet’s could do something stupid to get him.

Problem for the Vikings is that are in low leverage situation because they have less than $2M in cap space.

BoSoxJim
Member
Free agent
BoSoxJim

There has to be a couple of players they can restructure to free up space if they need to.

MrScratch
Member
Free agent
MrScratch

There are always restructure options, but that leads to more headaches down the road as that money becomes future gtd salary. And considering how many big contracts they’ve already signed recently and with the cap uncertainty after next year… for instance: Anthony barr is a $5.6m cap charge this year that jumps to $12.7M next year and $15.5M in 2021.

BoSoxJim
Member

BoSoxJim

Of course they would be swapping one headache for another. However, they need to decide if trading Rudolph and leaving part of their fate to an unproven rookie is a better option than having to do some cap gymnastics in future years.

dp73
Member

If they can afford to keep Rudolph than they can have a team that can compete. I don’t think they will give him away. Smith is a rookie. What if he got hurt like Wynn got hurt?

BoSoxJim
Member

BoSoxJim

I’m sure the Vikings will just keep him and get a compensatory pick in 2021.

dp73

That is the other option as well. That is why if the can afford to keep him they probably will.

MrScratch
Member

MrScratch

What’s the market for 30 year-old TEs? Cook got $7.75 which will probably qualify him at 5th round level. Charles Clay got $3.25M and that would be a borderline qualifier (he doesn’t count in the formula, but if he did). And even that is deferred value.

MrScratch
Member
Free agent
MrScratch

Right now there are 4 players that can individually provide the cap releief they’ll need: Riley Reiff, harrison Smith, Everson griffen and Rudolph. Of them, Rudolph provides the most and comes with no dead money.

They can’t afford to do nothing, they have to do something.

I would think Minnesota could get better then that. We will see. It could depend on their cap situation and how much they have to cut it.

BoSoxJim

I’m sure AZ thought the same when they were shopping a potential franchise QB.

Teams that were in need of a TE took one in one of the deepest TE drafts in memory (including MN)..

Oddly enough, the Pats weren’t one of them, which leads me to believe they won’t overspend (draft capital) for a 30 yo TE (who is good at best…excellent hands though).

My 2-Cents on comparing Harry and Dobson: One catches with his hands and the other catches with his body. One aggressively attacks the ball and the other let the ball come to him.

hugo #FreeBoney
Member
Free agent
hugo #FreeBoney

I don’t see any basis for comparison honestly. Harry is physical, Dobson isn’t. Dobson had straight line speed, Harry is shiftier/good at YAC.
Also big difference in production. Harry caught 213 for 2889 yards and 22 TDs in 3 years. Dobson caught 165 for 2398 yards and 24 TDs in 4 years.

Totally agree. Harry seems like a fighter. I watched Dobson get manhandled over and over again.

Plus, and I can’t stress this enough, HARRY CATCHES WITH HIS HANDS!!! lol

dfwpatsfan
Member

dfwpatsfan

Looks like my post brought a lot of discussion.

I’m more concerned about the expectations rather than their actual gameplay. They’re obviously not the same players. The similarities I talked about came in both their respective junior seasons, how both had one handed catches that made waves etc. Outside of some highlights I really haven’t watched much of Harry, so I deferred from further posting on that topic.

Yeah, I don’t mean to say Dobson sucks and Harry is great. I just think they have very different profiles coming out of college. Deep guy vs possession guy.

dfwpatsfan
Member

Which is funny that you mentioned Dobson as a deep guy because all scouting reports mentioned he was a possession receiver.

dfwpatsfan
Member
Free agent
dfwpatsfan

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/1611498-aaron-dobson-scouting-report-nfl-outlook-for-marshall-wr

Under strengths, Dobson is listed as a prototypical possession receiver. There are other ones which mention the same.

dfwpatsfan
Member
Free agent
dfwpatsfan

To reiterate, I’m not challenging your impressions on Harry, since I’ve not watched any game outside of a few highlight reels. It’s just that the early scouting for Dobson mentioned a lot of the same for Harry and he was anything but that. It’s possible injuries derailed his momentum, wr would never know, I just had a feeling not based on any scientific merit.

I really have nothing else to add on this topic beyond this point.

Arizona State is a much higher profile football school than Marshall. The only similarity I see is that they are both tall. But Harry is a monster, he’s nearly 230 pounds compared to 200 lb for Dobson. They play WR in completely different ways. I saw some one handed catches from Dobson, but I didn’t see him go up and take the ball away on the 50/50 throws.
