Name the Patriots Rookie: 2019 Edition

-by DNOMN8R314

As we enter the slow news period of offseason workouts and wait for training camp, let’s pass the time by bringing back a lighter piece from prior years.

This will include all Patriots rookies and UDFAs, but not non-rookie first-year players (such as DL Nick Thurman). There are 20 questions… *tablet breaks* …oy, 15 questions, one for each rookie… minus five.

Name a Patriots rookie who:

  1. …attended a Division II college?
  2. …last wore the same number in college as another Patriots rookie?
  3. …last attended the same college as another Patriots rookie?
  4. …is currently NOT sharing a jersey number with another Patriot?
  5. …is currently wearing a jersey number that is allowed at his position, per NFL rules?
  6. …has a surname that is also a U.S. city?
  7. …is listed on the Patriots website as under six feet tall?
  8. …has a surname which was one of the 1,000 most common first names given to American baby boys in 2018?
  9. …has a surname which was one of the 1,000 most common first names given to American baby girls in 2018?
  10. …who attended the same school as a Patriots 2018 draft pick?
  11. …who shares a first name with another current Patriot?
  12. …who shares a surname with another current Patriot?
  13. …whose first name scores at least 12 points in Scrabble?
  14. …whose surname scores at least 15 points in Scrabble?
  15. …whose surname is a valid Scrabble word?

And lastly: Who is the only Patriots rookie who is NOT a valid answer to any of the above questions?

(Here’s the filler space to keep you from scrolling directly to the answers.)

(Isn’t it better than just blank white space?)

(But three lines of text is usually enough.)

Answers:

  1. Gunner Olszewski (Bemidji State)
  2. Joejuan Williams & Jarrett Stidham (8)
  3. Tyler Gauthier & Tyree St. Louis (Miami), Jarrett Stidham & Ryan Davis (Auburn)
  4. N’Keal Harry (50), Byron Cowart (59), Nick Brossette (64), Ryan Davis (65), Tyler Gauthier (67), Terez Hall (68)
  5. Chase Winovich (52), Byron Cowart (59), Tyler Gauthier (67), Tyree St. Louis (71). (Take credit if you named Yodny Cajuste (54) or Hjalte Froholdt (55); although per the rulebook the only OL allowed to wear numbers between 50-59 are centers, others occasionally land those digits (e.g. Brian Waters’ 54).)
  6. Tyree St. Louis
  7. Ryan Davis (5’9″), D’Angelo Ross (5’9″), Damien Harris (5’11”), Ken Webster (5’11”)
  8. Ryan Davis (507), N’Keal Harry (620). (I’m shocked that Ross (as in D’Angelo) wasn’t there, but apparently it fell out of the top 1,000 in 2013, despite peaking at 147 in 1985.)
  9. Jake Bailey (133)
  10. N’Keal Harry (Arizona State, Christian Sam), Nick Brossette (LSU, Danny Etling), Tyler Gauthier (Miami, Braxton Berrios), Tyree St. Louis (Miami, Braxton Berrios)
  11. Ryan Davis (Ryan Allen/Ryan Izzo), Nick Brossette (Nick Thurman)
  12. Damien Harris (Trent Harris)
  13. Joejuan Williams (21), Jakobi Meyers (19), Hjalte Froholdt (16), Jake Bailey (15), Jarrett Stidham (14), Terez Hall (14), Yodny Cajuste (12)
  14. Gunner Olszewski (25), Chase Winovich (19), Yodny Cajuste (15), Hjalte Froholdt (15)
  15. N’Keal Harry, Jake Bailey, Ken Webster, Andrew Beck, Terez Hall

And lastly: Malik Gant.

You may now return to your regularly scheduled Bruins, Celtics, and Red Sox discussion.

As the MLB trade deadline starts looming, should the Red Sox be sellers or buyers?

Buyers, they still can clinch a postseason spot. Rays are just 6 game ahead

Wouldn’t you think the Texans would have investigated Caserio’s contract details before going full force after him? Seems like they didn’t do their due diligence and created a mess as a result.

Deadsmack #EverythingWeGot

It is already a non issue.
The issue can become the relation of Caserio and the Patriots

MasterAndCommander

That’s my point, that potential issue wouldn’t exist if the Texans did proper research. Or maybe they wanted to cause the disruption between Caserio and the Pats looking towards the future.

maybe but we don’t have a clear indication if Caserio is happy or not with his role with the Pats. Or if the Pats had promised him and McD for the future after BB departure.

For DNOM: Here are some article ideas:
1. History of the Patriots ownership, its current state, and what the future may hold
2. As the BB and TB era enters its twilight years, what paths will the Pats take for planning for the future
3. Since you like numbers, rate the % chance each person has to make the roster as training camp looms.
4. Potential training camp/preseason pickups etc. as other teams start cutting or moving on from players
5. Has GlaxoSmithKline ramped up TUMS production enough for BSJ this season? 🙂

The Caserio situation has me wondering what’s going on.

Everything we’ve seen and heard is that he is being groomed to take over. So I don’t understand why he would want to go to the Texans. The only thing that makes sense (to me at least) is that Belichick might be hanging around longer than we all thought – which obviously is a good thing. IMO, they should keep Nick happy = give him whatever title a/o $ he wants.

Folks love to rag on the Patriots, but literally every franchise has so many ghosts in the basement that it’s ridiculous. Here is what will be taking over the Broncos ownership next month:

I feel for Nick Caserio.. I’ve been bitten by non-compete clauses as well.

Damn the fine print.

There’s no indication he’s unhappy here. Probably signed it for a reason.

I’ve signed at least a dozen non-compete agreements. You don’t do it if you don’t think you are going to succeed at the place where you signed it. Sometimes, that doesn’t happen. In this case, the signing team still wants the employee, so Casserio is good.

Two in a row against a good team, to salvage a series split. Meh. They’re beating up on the weak teams and generally failing against the good teams. I still enjoy having the game on as part of my summer routine, but I’m not going to get too excited about their season yet.

Per @TomPelissero, Full Statement from Texans CEO Cal McNair:

“When we started the process to interview Nick Caserio for our EVP/GM position, we consulted the League office on numerous occasions, followed the procedures outlined in the League’s rules and believed we were in full compliance. We have now been made aware of certain terms in Nick’s contract with the Patriots. Once we were made aware of these contract terms, I informed Mr. Kraft that we would stop pursuing Nick.”

Wow I really wonder what that last part is referring to

Mike Reiss @MikeReiss
The Lions announce that TE Michael Roberts reverted back to the team’s roster, per trade conditions. Subsequently, the Lions then announced that they have waived Roberts. So the trade of Roberts to the Patriots is void, and the Patriots keep the 2020 seventh-round pick.

@USATODAY Recently fired Houston Texans general manager Brian Gaine “targeted” African American employees in a series of firings, according to the complaint.
So did he actually do this…. or are the Texans framing the guy to get out of the tampering allegations?

If he didn’t do it, then the Texans have opened themselves up to a ginormous defamation suit.

hugo #FreeBoney

Seems like a hell of a coincidence, no?. They fired the guy last Friday. Now a week later, after they’ve been accused of impropriety…. it’s actually because the old GM was a scumbag all along?

BoSoxJim

The Patriots have to have more than just the timing of the firing of their GM in order to file tampering charges. They must know that Caserio was approached/contacted by somebody (if not Easterby) about the job.

If so, then the reason why they fired their GM becomes irrelevant unless the former GM files a lawsuit against the Texans for wrongful termination (or something like that).

hugo #FreeBoney

hugo #FreeBoney

True. It’s just odd. NFL teams never get called out for all the discrimination they presumably do. Then the one time a team is in trouble for conducting a pre-planned GM search, this comes out after the fact.

It’s funny to see the LA and national media trying to legitimize the bogus reports circulating that Griffin has any interest whatsoever in Ball (can’t shoot) and Ingram (blood clot issues). Zero point zero chance.

In addition, there is only one star in this draft, and if you squint, perhaps two more solid starters. Pick #4 is the same as pick #9 basically.

I don’t care about a second contract now. Let’s see how many games he plays and how well he can do this year. He had a solid rookie year and let’s see how he can build off of that.

That transition bucket by Livingston was crafty as hell. To avoid getting blocked from behind, he slowed up, so the guy behind him would bump into him, then took off again.
