Preseason Y Factors 2019: Patriots vs. Giants

-by DNOMN8R314

[NOTE: Don’t forget to send in your roster projections before the end of Friday!]

The final preseason game is always a showcase for backups, those making a final push for a roster spot – or at least aiming to show they belong on some NFL team. While we can expect most of the players on the field to be cut this weekend, more than a few will stick around, and some (such as J.C. Jackson last year) could become significant contributors. Thus there is no reason to scrimp on the Y Factors for preseason game number four. Let’s get at ’em.

Center of attention: The news that David Andrews’ season is in jeopardy puts the Patriots’ backup snappers under a heavy spotlight. Ted Karras, the next player up at the position and a player who has filled in in front of Tom Brady during his first three seasons in the NFL, will be penciled in at starter, but New England’s interior depth has become that more critical. None of James Ferentz, Tyler Gauthier, or Hjalte Froholdt (primarily a guard, but has played center; more on him below) have particularly stood out this preseason, so while their roster chances have all increased, it’s still possible the Patriots look to other teams, both their cuts and the players they might trade, to improve their depth at the position. We’ll find out soon.

Hjalte the heavens: Froholdt’s standing on the roster has been assumed as a given with his selection early in the fourth round this year, but I’ve grown less sure as the preseason has gone on. Despite his potential, Froholdt has been graded inconsistently and has been penalized four times in three games. Could he end up cut entirely? I can’t say for sure (obviously), but I wouldn’t put his roster chances at 100 percent. As with the tackles, depending on how much or how late he plays, we could have a better idea if he’ll receive a redshirt year on the active roster – a likelihood that becomes much stronger with the Andrews news – or if the Patriots would rather expose him to waivers with the hope of developing him on the practice squad.

Tackle football: Only days until final cuts and one of the more debated positions on New England’s roster is their backup offensive tackle. Dan Skipper has taken the most snaps, but with his up-and-down preseason several Patriots writers are giving Cole “hasn’t been cut as many times as Ross Ventrone” Croston that role on their projected squads. With third-rounder Yodny Cajuste on PUP, the Patriots have had five players competing for the swing tackle job: Skipper, Croston, Cedrick Lang, Tyree St. Louis, and Martez Ivey. Whoever plays how many snaps and in which quarters will give us a sign as to which player – if any – wins that spot on the 53. (EDIT: Since writing, but before posting, the Patriots have traded for Korey Cunningham and Jermaine Eluemenor, thereby knocking everyone else down the depth chart.)

Duke and cover(age): It was only a year and a season ago that Bill Belichick turned in a second-round draft card for Florida cornerback Duke Dawson. Dawson spent most of his rookie year on IR and was not activated for a game even after returning to the 53-man roster, and he has spent this offseason being overshone by the other defensive backs in Foxboro. Dawson has never cut a second-round pick this early into his New England tenure, but Belichick has spent seasons subverting his expectations and roster management trends (hello, N’Keal Harry). The longer Dawson plays in this game, the less likely it is he remains on the active squad after Saturday.

Return to the spotlight: It’s still no sure thing who will be returning kickoffs and punts for New England come Week 1. Brandon Bolden was the Patriots’ first kick returner in the preseason, and he may keep that role at least for the time being, but punt returner is still in question. Aside from longtime returner Julian Edelman, most of the possibilities for the role are not roster locks, have little return experience, or both. Rex Burkhead and Jakobi Meyers have the best roster chances, while Braxton Berrios and Gunner Olszewski are considered on the bubble, keeping special teams in focus as the Patriots move into the regular season. (Just as Bill Belichick planned.)

Mike Reiss @MikeReiss
Bill Belichick, to @trags, on Brian Hoyer/Jarrett Stidham QB decision: “I thought both players played well in camp. I like both players. In the end, there are a number of considerations that you have to make … it’s a long season, so we’ll see what happens.”

4. Updating 2020 Patriots draft picks: With tight end Eric Saubert not making the final cut, the Patriots won’t be sending a 2020 seventh-round draft pick to the Falcons. The conditions of the August trade between the teams were that Saubert had to be on the active roster for four games. But the Patriots did tap into some of their 2020-pick supply in deals involving defensive end Michael Bennett (fifth round), Cunningham (sixth round), Dawson (seventh round) and Eluemunor (fourth round), so here’s what they have left:

Mike Reiss 2. Belichick’s second-round DB picks under the microscope: When a team selects a player in the second round like the Patriots did with cornerback Duke Dawson in 2018 and then trades him the following year in a swap of late-round picks, it’s obviously not the way it was supposed to turn out. Cyrus Jones (60th in 2016), Jordan Richards (64th in 2015), Tavon Wilson (48th in 2012), Ras-I Dowling (33rd in 2011), Darius Butler (41st in 2009) and Terrence Wheatley (62nd in 2008) are other second-round defensive backs in Belichick’s tenure who didn’t fulfill the expectations of their… Read more »

Per Rotoworld: Dez Bryant said he’s “going to be trying to get back in the league” in mid-October.
A shoe-in as New Orleans’ slot receiver before frustratingly tearing his Achilles’ in his first practice with the Saints, Bryant’s since been seen running routes and ferociously training with receivers coach David Robinson. Bryant also told Slater he’s feeling “way better than before” nearly 10 months since he first suffered the agonizing injury. It’s possible the Saints bring him back given their lack of depth at the position.

Why do we keep doing this? Can we solve it? I’m exasperated.

I hope they don’t ban metal music or videogames to fix that

Jim cheated. He rode an ATV down his street, instead:

I’m ashamed to say my daughter somehow picked up the lyrics to this and it might be a wee bit my fault.

OK, Nick. You won’t have any 1st rounders for 2 years and no 2nd rounder in 2021. Not to mention whatever else BOB gave/gives away. All set for you to take over as GM next season.

So I heard that the new “Do your job” is a blatant McDaniels advertisement – as in he’s ready to jump next season. BB totally pumps him up the whole time. The reason I mention is because like Caserio, McD sees the writing on the wall – BB ain’t going anywhere anytime soon.

This is great news.

I said if both Obi and Calhoun made the 53-man, I would run naked down my street.

I had both of them off, but Calhoun only because I didn’t know how bad he was hurt
