After adding some draft picks to an already loaded offense, the Patriots have added another. Lee Smith (TE, Marshall) is the newest tight end to be selected by New England
Smith is a great blocking tight end that we see being an eventual replacement for Alge Crumpler – who was almost like a 3rd tackle last year. Some even feel that Smith could become a future offensive lineman.
Smith is certainly not a field-stretcher, but runs good routes and is a big target (6’6″/265) in the red-zone.
