The Patriots once again assembled a strong rookie free agent class, led by receivers Kenbrell Thompkins, Mark Harrison and TJ Moe. Moe tore his Achilles in OTAs and has already been stashed on IR, but Harrison is a ridiculously talented player, with ideal size and speed, and Thompkins has already stood out in minicamp, getting a chance due to injuries to other wide receivers.
The Pats needed to rebuild their receiver group this year, and their throw-it-all-at-the-wall approach with both rookies and vets should prove fruitful.
Zach Sudfeld is another player who stood out in OTAs. He has Gronk-like size, and also Gronk-like injury concerns. If he can stay healthy, he might just find himself making the roster.
The rest of the undrafteds are a solid group, adding necessary depth at all the critical spots, and all will receive a fair chance at competing for a roster spot. It's almost assured that a couple of them will end up making the cut, for both the 53-man roster and the practice squad.
