Where does the emerging second year star rank within the roster? With an undrafted rookie free agent contract, Thompkins is guaranteed nothing, and with the way he played last year in the second half of the season, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was one of the last players cut. Spot on ! February 2015  (12) The Patriots have done a pretty good job of building up a rotation this off-season. Josh Kline (24), OG – An under the radar UDFA last season that worked his way into the starting lineup the final month of the season. Only way he sticks is if he beats out other defenders and more experienced Special Teams linebackers. He’ll have a steeper climb to stick this year with all the draft resources the Patriots invested on the offensive line. 2016 | Sure, he might be a bit limited with his ACL tears, but he’s got the talent of a top 10 pick. Beauharnais has strong intangibles and is a natural leader. 2000 | Four-game gauntlet ahead will likely determine that.

Return of 'Backyard' Ben Roethlisberger signals more good things ahead for Steelers. On kick return, he reeled in nine returns for 214 yards. Notable Cuts: Kenbrell Thompkins, Mark Harrison, Rob Gronkowski, Michael Hoomanawanui, Justin Jones. Getting old!!! He can also produce in the return game, which is an obvious plus. 1995 | 1990 | The combination of Vellano and Jones was greatly exposed vs. the run last season.

Patriots had a lack of talent last season, this year they don’t. April 2017  (17) The cornerback position is finally a position of strength for the Patriots! February 2014  (20)

With no true long snapper on their depth chart, Rob Ninkovich would take over the position until a move is made. Alfonzo Dennard suffers the most here because of his recent arrest, but should still be a contributor when the Patriots need a third cornerback. 63. March 2015  (13) He could be this year’s “Justin Green”.

He’s considered just generally a DB, but his role will most likely be at safety, playing mostly special teams, but perhaps contributing in the box, which is his strength. If Gronkowski begins camp on PUP list, he’ll be given some huge reps to show he belongs. Hey fuckstick there’s plenty of places where you can go comment on the sorry ass jets.
