As the NFL Draft comes at the end of this month, the talk of what the New England Patriots will do is picking up.
Patriots Beat welcomes Justis Mosqueda to the show to look at who the Patriots might pick, specifically, defensive ends and outside linebackers.
One man on Mosqueda’s radar is Deatrich Wise Jr. from Arkansas. Mosqueda describes Wise as a Trey Flowers type of player and may not have elite athleticism, but has a high motor and is an effort kind of player.
“Deatrich Wise Jr. was a man amongst boys at the Shrine Game” Mosqueda explained. Wise may not be extremely well known, but to anyone paying attention, he was able to impress scouts and spectators as he had a fantastic showing at the Shrine Game.
Another player Mosqueda thought could be a later round pick for the Patriots is Vince Biegel from Wisconsin. Many people know his teammate T.J. Watt as he is J.J. Watt’s younger brother, but Biegel was quietly building up quite a resume.
“Biegel, on a per snap basis, he’s a more productive pass rusher than TJ Watt” Mosqueda said. Although Biegel does not have the big name, he is a guy that shows up on the film often and is consisten each and every play.
