Site Issues Have Been Fixed! I hope

NEPD Staff Writer: Mike Gerken

As many of you may have experienced, there have been some issues with articles and its comments disappearing randomly. I was lucky enough to have Ian from over at help me with the situation today and with luck I think we are past those issues. There may be some articles (mock draft Monday and two for Tuesday, Combine preview) that are still in limbo and may or may not randomly show up. I recommend not trying to post in those articles anymore and use the latest scouting report (Josh Sweat) to add any comments you want on whichever topics you want. I apologize for the inconvienence and hopefully we are past the issues. So far (fingers crossed) this issue has not come up with me today.

Thanks again.

    Last week I posted a piece on Athleticism vs Technique and it being ideal to find players who have a combination of both.

    Well one player who has been showing that this off season is LB/S Oren Burks of Vanderbilt. He started this off season as a sleeper but has been slowly moving up draft boards with both his athleticism at the combine and his play on the field as a late call up to the Senior Bowl as injury replacement for Micah Kiser where he had 6 tackles (4th most in the game), including a game-high 2 TFLs for the South team.

    3 plays which can be seen here. He is number 53 in Black uniform

    As you can see he is quick to diagnosis and read plays then takes a good straight angle to make the tackle. Now while his tackling isn’t perfect and I’d like to see him work on refining his tackling(IE Wrap up a little better) it isn’t a weakness ie where he isn’t over aggressive sloppy takes bad angles.

    While at Vanderbilt he started playing as a Safety then played a hybrid LB/S and LB. So he has versatility where he has the range and coverage skills to play as a safety / linebacker hybrid player, as an outside linebacker, or as the playmaking inside linebacker. Can cover tight ends. Moves well from sideline to sideline.

    That was confirmed yesterday at the combine with how he tested.

    Oren Burks
    Height 6’3 1/8″
    Weight 233 lbs
    Arm Length 33 3/8″ The same as ILB Brandon Spikes
    Wingspan: 79 4/8
    Vert Jump: 39.5″ 2nd among all LB’s
    Broad Jump: 10’11″(131″) 1st among all LB’s
    40: 4.59
    10 Yard split:1.59
    3 Cone: 6.82 3rd among all LB’s
    20 Shuttle: 4.15 2nd among all LB’s

    During the combine drills The Mick Nartin noted on twitter that Burks looked good opening his hips and killed the drills.

    In an article written found here

    It highlights the complete package on and off the field but one thing that stood out to me was this.

    “My big thing is football IQ,” Burks said. “This is one time you get a chance to talk some ball with (NFL teams). Just going through plays, drawing up plays and going through film, that has definitely helped me a lot. Because (teams) are like, “This guy can pick up an NFL playbook.’ Being a Vanderbilt guy, we’re pretty smart. Being able to talk through that helps out a lot.”

    • kevin z says:

      Big fan of Burks think if stays at one spot he will be a beast. Hoping for him if don’t get Warner.

      • Stephen J says:

        I have Burks over Warner at this point but I have to go and watch more tape.

        • kevin z says:

          Yea cant go wrong with either one I like both players even take both Warner can play a Big safety type while Burks plays Lb type or vice versa

    • Stephen J says:

      Here is a play where he initially misreads the play to the outside but quickly picks it up corrects it in order to finish with the tackle

    • steve earle says:

      Based just on these videos his angles of pursuit were off and ended up chasing on two out of three. The first tackle was more head on and wrap up form was fine imo.

      • Stephen J says:

        His angles of pursuit were fine its when he transitions from pursuit to tackle that needs work. As far as running from behind that was his best angle to make the tackle or otherwise no play would have been made by him.

    7 round mock Patriots
    Round 1 Rasheem Green DT/DE USC
    Round 2 Dallas Goedert TE SD State
    Round 2 Kyle Lauletta QB Washington State
    Round 3 Chase Edmonds RB Fordham
    Round 4 (comp) Tre Flowers S Oklahoma State
    Round 6 Trey Quinn WR SMU

    Rasheem Green – versatile player can play inside and out help with DT and DE ran fastest 40 for DTs extremely athletic and talented and young.
    Dallas Geodert – great receiver huge production could instantly become our #2 tight end behind Gronk
    Kyle Lauletta – I believe Lauletta or Falk will be drafted by the Patriots in the 2 or third round.
    Chase Edmonds – great production all 4 years in college can catch and run and extremely elusive. basically a slightly taller dion lewis
    Tre Flowers – Can play safety and corner. Strong tackler. good in coverage. versatile DB
    Trey Quinn – slot type receiver. Great hands and route running. FIts the mold of player patriots like at receiver

  5. Stephen J says:

    Per Ben Volin Lamar Jackson doesn’t have an agent, and it showed at the Combine. He didn’t do well in interviews and white-board work

  6. kevin z says:

    My last Mock until a few days before draft .

    2 Justin Reid S good bloodlines plus smart should end up a Patriot
    2 Fred Warner Lb good in space convinced by mike a top 50 -60 player in draft
    3 Quinton Meeks Bigger CB teammates with Reid do like did with Rutgers on backend with Stanford here instead
    3 PJ Hall Hall NT short Bowling Bowl type banging my head to take him like did for Grady Jarrett my Binkie id take him sooner if I could lol.
    4 Ito smith hard to tackle in a phone booth quick cuts can catch as well as block which is important.
    4 Brandon Parker ot Help Protect Brady
    4 Marcel frazier DE play all over line shorter arms but plays like hair on fire
    6 Philip Lindsey RB Hyper active type gets others fired up over style of play can catch play ST

    not convinced landry or Philips fall to us at 31. Would be happy with Armstrong at 43 as well if don’t take Reid.

  7. Stephen J says:

    What to make of Todd Graham former ASU head coach who BB had come in and address the team last may and whom BB drafted WR Devin Lucien and brought in Undrafted Free Agent RB DJ Foster were players under him. While being at ASU had a record of 46-31 and had a huge decrease in ASU’s penalties and penalty yards while there was seen at the combine and rumored to be a Patriots consultant.

    Not only Graham but Bret Bielema who was Arkansas former HC who coached both Trey Flowers and Deatrich Wise and was a LB coach at Iowa with Kirk Ferentz which happens to be a position the Pats seem interested in not to mention if LB Coach Brian Flores replaces Matt Patricia as DC then would Bielema be a potential LB coach for the Pats.

    Only time will tell but interesting indeed.

  8. GM-in-Training says:

    For DE/DT/LB(Edge) players, I really like long arms. Based on the Combine today, here are Defensive front players I think are exciting based on their traits. Estimates of the rounds they will be drafted in range from 1-6.

    LB, DT and Edge Combine participants with 34” or greater arms:

    Trenton Thompson, DT, Georgia, 6’4”, 288#, 34” arms, 5.06 40dash

    OLUBUNMI ROTIMI, DE, Old Dominion, 6’4”, 273#, 34 ⅞” arms,

    Josh Sweat, DE, Fl. State., 6’4” 251#, 34 ⅝” arms, 4.53 40dash

    Da’Shawn Hand, DE, Alabama, 6’4”, 297#, 34 ⅜” arms, 4.83 40dash

    Jalyn Homes, DE, Ohio St., 6’5”, 283#, 34” arms, 4.82 40 dash

    Duke Ejiofor, DE, Wake Forest, 6’4”, 264#, 34 ⅞” arms,

    Foley Fatukasis, DT, Connecticut, 6’4”, 318, 34 ⅛” arms, 5.29 40 dash

    Lorenzo Carter, DE, Georgia, 6’6”, 250#, 34” arms, 4.5 40 dash

    Andrew Brown, DE, Virginia, 6’4”, 296#, 34 ½” arms, 5.03 40 dash

    Dorance Armstrong, DE, Kansas, 6’4”, 257#, 34 ¾” arms, 4.87 40 dash

    Ade Aruna, DE, Tulaine, 6’6”, 262#, 34” arms, 4.6 40 dash

    Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech, 6’5”, 253, 34 ½” arms, 4.55 40 dash

    • Stephen J says:

      One thing to keep in mind GM the Patriots could care less about 40 time when it comes to specifically their LB’s. For example Brandon Spikes ran a 5.06 40 but ran a 6.97 3 cone. They are more interested in change of direction speed and short area speed than straight line speed. His arm length was 33 3/8″.

      Wow no Harrison Phillips who has 33 7/8″ inch arms just 1/8″ from 34″ with a wingspan of 80 1/2″ who put up 42 reps on the bench.

      Compared to Da’Shawn Hand who has 34 3/8″ just 1/2″ difference and a 80 5/8″ wingspan a 1/8″ difference but put up 28 reps on the bench.

      Compared to Ade Aruna who had 34″ arms 1/8″ different and 80″ wingspan which is shorter than Phillips by 4/8″ and only put up 18 reps on the bench.

      Then there is DE/DT RJ McIntosh of Miami(Fl) with 33 7/8″ arms and 82 6/8″ wingspan

      • steve earle says:

        Not sure what “Wow no” means regarding Phillips? I like Phillips as a DT, not a DE like Russell thinks, but confused by what you wrote?

        • Stephen J says:

          Wow no meaning No Phillips on this list due to his arms being 1/8″ short of 34″

      • steve earle says:

        Oh yea! Hadn’t noticed that. That’s okay we’ll take him even with his severe handicap and all.

  9. kevin z says:

    2nd –Justin Reid S
    2nd – Chad Thomas DE
    2nd – Fred Warner LB
    3rd- Brandon Parker OL
    3rd- Pj Hall DT
    3rd –Daurice Fountain WR
    4th – Mike White QB
    6th – Phillip Lindsay RB

  10. kevin z says:

    wow heck a run there Griffin

    • steve earle says:

      Here is another tweener I want to root for just don’t know if missing a hand will be to big an obstacle to over come in the pros?

      • kevin z says:

        Yea same here easy to root for. I think can play if keep him clean can make plays with speed. Worry about wrapping up though in the NFL. Hope does make it and prove everyone wrong along giving other kids alike some hope with same issue he has.

  11. EdgeX says:

    A-N-D………….there goes Marcus Davenport’s chances of making it to the Pat’s first pick. Zoom. Buh-bye.

    • steve earle says:

      Oh now there you go crushing my hopes. “Ah cruel fate”. Not really surprised though he looks to be going to be great. I still have a couple edge guys on my board that have a decent chance to be available I think maybe even Sam Hubbard. I like Hubbard, he doesn’t have eye popping stats but is a great team effort guy. Would be a great fit. Now don’t go crushing my hopes again Edge.

      • EdgeX says:

        Yeah – I think Hubbard still has a chance of being available when Pat’s pick. But question will be is he their guy?

        Cause for instance…say the draft unfolds and CB Josh Jackson and DE Sam Hubbard are available with the 31st pick. I think the Pat’s would be more likely to take Jackson than Hubbard even with the pressing need of a DE.

        • steve earle says:

          That could be, what with Butler all but gone so an opening would be apparent. What I see in Hubbard is a real team first type player which is something Bill really values. Either way, either player would be a good pick imo and both at positions of need. Can’t see how we could go wrong.

    • jimr says:

      Harold Landry is making himself some today

      • steve earle says:

        Not a surprise I have him on my hope available at 31 list. Good rush OLB with potential to improve in coverage. Setting edge needs work but a good DE would do wonders to help there.

  12. macspak says:

    The player I want most out of this draft is Lamar Jackson. I think he is one of the BPA and best QB’s available and is the one to break the barrier of the next generation QB’s to truly combine athleticism, speed, decision making, leadership, instincts and passing and become an absolute elite QB. Learning behind Brady for 3 years would be absolutely ideal for him to learn the pro game and improve his passing, recognition and decision making. In turn it would greatly benefit the Patriots. Unfortunately he likely will go well before 31.

    • steve earle says:

      I understand the attraction but lets be realistic, even if we drafted him at whatever round he would be on the bench for one, two, three years? Not on my mock I want a player with the 1st pick but that’s just me. I know all the arguments for taking him, just disagree.

  13. EdgeX says:

    I’d really like Rasheem Green to be one of the DE’s the Pat’s pick.

    • steve earle says:

      I like Green as a late day 2 prospect who by mid year can get some def snaps. Scouts say he has to get stronger and that takes awhile but otherwise has good up side. Believing BB will trade down for extra picks, ? an extra 3rd, I see him as a prime possibility.

  14. EdgeX says:

    What round will the Pat’s take Nathan Shepherd from FTSU? 🙂

    • steve earle says:

      I think the high would be #63 the low 4 comp. Edging toward a 3rd mid rd if Bill manages to get one of those.

  15. Stephen J says:

    Mike Geisicki just confirmed what I was thinking all along after the combine he is a large body WR not a TE.

    6’5 4/8″ 247 lbs 34 1/8″ Arm length 10 1/4″ hand size 4.54 40 22 Bench 41.5″ Vert 10’9″ Broad Jump 6.76 3 Cone 4.10 20 Shuttle 11.33 60 Shuttle

    • EdgeX says:

      I like him too. He would be an awesome addition if the Pat’s don’t keep Bennett.

      • Stephen J says:

        To me he is a WR replaces Kenny Britt not a TE Bennett. He has near zilch in the blocking game. That gives the defense an edge just like RB Mike Gillislee who isn’t much of a threat catching the ball so the Defense just crowd’s the line knowing its going to be a run. When you have Mike Geisicki as a TE in you know its going to be a pass just because he isn’t much of a threat in his blocking.

    • Stephen J says:

      …………….Mike Geisicki……………Calvin Johnson…………..
      Height…….6’5 4/8″………………….6’5″
      Arm Length.34 1/8″………………….33 3/8″
      Wingspan…82 1/8″…………………..82″
      Hand Size…10 1/4″………………….9 1/4″
      Broad Jump.129″……………………..139″
      Vertical…….41 1/2″…………………..42 1/2″

      Just a combine comparison to the closest WR his size weight and measurables

      • lenny says:


        He is obviously not Calvin Johnson.
        He is more like George Kittle.

        • Stephen J says:

          I can do the same thing. Take one measurement as a comparison.
          Kittle’s Vertical of 35″ and Geisicki’s of 41 1/2 looks more Calvin like to me.

          I am looking at the overall picture. Geisicki skill set is more that of a WR than TE. His measurements and abilities/skill sets are more in alignment with Calvin Johnson than George Kittle.

          Kittle is a TE who can block. Geisicki is no blocker he is more a liability as a blocker than an asset (especially as an inline blocker).

          I am not saying Geisicki is as good as Calvin Johnson just that his skill set and measurements are more in line with his than any TE

          PS I had to you Calvin Johnson because there is no WR with that size that has/had that freakish type of athletic ability as a whole.

        • lenny says:

          Turbo has it right. Gesicki is more like Jimmy Graham than he is like Johnson or Kittle. My point was that Calvin Johnson comparisons should be reserved for freaks of nature, not better-than-average athletes like Gesicki or Kittle who have more in common with each other than with Megatron. It will be interesting to see how well Goedert does at the combine because on tape he appears to be exceptionally agile for his size.

        • Stephen J says:

          Outside of the 40 time their measurements are nearly identical if that is the case then Gesicki is a freak of nature as well and not just an above average athlete. Look at the whole package not just one aspect. There are two other athletic aspects that weren’t even mentioned above like the 3 cone and 20 shuttle were Gesicki excelled at as well that Calvin didn’t. So does that make Calvin not a freak of nature because he didn’t excel in those areas no. Once again I’m just comparing Athletic Measurements not On field abilities with Calvin. Calvin is obviously superior in that department. If you refuse to look at athletic comparisons no matter who they are then why bother with the combine at all if you are just going to pick and choose which players they can be and can’t be compared too.

      • Stephen J says:

        Lets do this again.

        Mike Gesicki is no Jimmy Graham either.

        Jimmy Graham is listed as 6’7″ 265 lbs according to

        Mike Gesicki is 6’5 1/2″ 247 lbs nearly a 20 lbs difference. said this on his weakness scouting report. Blocking tenacity and overall technique need polish and refinement.

        While said this about Gesicki. Passive approach as blocker puts run plays in immediate peril. Hand usage is poor in run game. Rarely sustains blocks against legitimate edge talent.

        There is a big difference in needing polish and refinement as compared to he puts run plays in immediate peril and rarely sustains blocks. Where he does sustain his blocks is against DB’s and smaller LB’s that are used to cover him in the passing game. Which again shows/reflects his WR skill set and not a TE skill set.

        • Turbo says:

          Please tell Mike Mayock his Ertz comp to Gesicki is bad, cause Ertz is clearly a better blocker than Gesicki, but half of the athlete he is.

        • Stephen J says:

          In my opinion yes it’s a bad comparison because of the reasons I’ve been stating. Gesicki’s natural position is not that of a TE even though he played it in college. So any comparison to a TE is inaccurate. Just because a player is listed at a certain position doesn’t mean that is where he should be or what he is. For example when a player who played on the high school level played say a WR but in college was identified to be a better CB they switch him. Now the same here applies look at his skill set and what he excels at. Then make the switch. Why would you put a player in a position that he doesn’t excel at, instead of his more naturally occurring playing position which is obvious on tape. It just doesn’t make sense. No one is disputing his catching ability or his athleticism. They just criticize for how horrendous his blocking(mainly inline) is. If that’s the case then why would you even waste time when you have so little of that in the first place. Just use their natural talents and gifts and make them better. I’d rather focus on his receiving skill set and put time and energy into refining the areas where he needs work on such as dealing with physical DB’s/LB’s and getting off blocks. As a blocking TE the only way he will do well is if he isn’t inline and more outside handling those DB’s and smaller LB’s which is where your big WR’s are.

        • Turbo says:

          Jimmy Graham, Zach Ertz, Jordan Reed, Hunter Henry, Greg Olsen just to name a few guys who are league avarage blockers at best and still considered the better ones in the NFL. In a pass-oriented league, the one we have today a TE who can catch and create mismatches are highly valuable. Gesicki has the tools to be one of them. If you have a terrible QB or a terrible OC, Gesicki is not your man.

          He’s more valuable as a TE, he’s going to improve as a blocker once he’s in the league. No need to change his position.

        • Stephen J says:

          He is not more valuable as a TE when he is unwilling to become a better inline blocker. He may say he is willing but hasn’t proven it at all during his time at Penn St. He maybe willing to use his Athleticism as a blocker but was unwilling/uninterested to learn technique to become a better blocker. Why should he as well when everyone and his father is saying who cares about his blocking I want him as a receiving TE to catch the ball and we will coach him up on his blocking. Plus he is no where nears those TE’s that you listed in his blocking abilities. He may have the tools but the interest in learning to use the tools is not there. It’s some what like saying I can write with my right hand so I’m not really interested in learning to write with my left. Whoever selects him and attempts to use him as an inline blocker is going to run into issues in their running games and if you want to have an equal amount of runs to passes that is 50% of the time your going to have issues with his inline blocking. Why in the world would you select someone in the 1st or even 2nd round when you can only effectively use him 50% of the time. Where as if he is a big bodied WR you wont run into that issue nearly as often because most of the time he will be blocking the smaller players on D and not the bigger just as athletic players on D.

        • Turbo says:

          Do we have any coach who said he’s unwilling to block? What if his coaches said “Okay, you’re not a natural blocker, so let’s forget about it and we’re going use you only as a passing threat”

          ” Whoever selects him and attempts to use him as an inline blocker is going to run into issues in their running games and if you want to have an equal amount of runs to passes that is 50% of the time your going to have issues with his inline blocking. ”

          Like i said you’re going to draft Gesicki if you want to dominate in the passing game and you can utilize him properly with a creative offensive coordinator. Who’s stupid enough to ask him to block inline from day 1 when he can’t do it?

          ” Why in the world would you select someone in the 1st or even 2nd round when you can only effectively use him 50% of the time.”

          Giants? Evan Engram? Ask them. Everyone knew he can’t block and if he’s on the field it’s going to be a pass play most of the time and he put up 700+ yards and 6 TD as a rookie. And the didn’t have OBJ or a running game at all.

          You’re not going to find Gronk and Kelce type of TEs who can do everything, they are rare.

        • Stephen J says:

          That’s other teams not the Pats. If they are willing to take out an outside WR because a TE can’t block that’s their problem. The Pats look for a TE that can do both and if you can’t your sure as heck not going to be drafted in the 1st or 2nd.
          Sometimes it’s not what coaches say it’s what they don’t say. No coach is going to say publicly that so and so is unwilling. So which of those coaches defended him in his willingness to block. Not one that I’ve seen and considering how many times it has been with him through the years that is telling in and off itself.

          They maybe rare but they are out there and there is a few in this draft who may not be elite as Gronk but if Gronk goes down and you don’t pick up Bennett then cut Allen who is going to be blocking. The only option you have left is Jacob Hollister. Yea no thanks.

        • Turbo says:

          I didn’t say a single thing about the Patriots. I said some team might invest in Gesicki like how the Giants did with Engram. If you’re the Ravens you sure as hell don’t want to draft him early on cause you have Joke Flacco as your QB and a run heavy playbook with a terrible OC. If you’re the Phily or Dallas you can get away with this type of player cause you don’t need the extra blocking guy to protect your QB or to make your running game work. Same with Seattle or in theory GB could make this type of player work cause you have an elite QB with quick release and the ability to extend the plays.

        • Stephen J says:

          Basically what you are saying is for teams that are just looking to get the ball out quickly and don’t need the extra blocking TE he will be preforming the big WR role which is what I’ve been saying he is all the time with the added hope that he develops as an inline blocker.

          Now with that said Thanks Turbo for stirring up the passion and showing me things that I initially didn’t think of or see and had to reflect on or do more research. Until next time. Cheers.

        • lenny says:

          Now it becomes apparent why you are so confused…you are relying on the misinformation provided by Lance Zierlein at Here is what he wrote about Jamarco Jones: “”Doesn’t have optimal height/length”… “makes up for” alleged height deficiency with “longer arms.” Believing such gobbledegook leads you to your false comparisons. Stylistically, Graham and Gesicki are comparable in that they are agile/angular atheletes who are better-than-average receivers and worse-than-average blockers. Insofar as you comparing Gesicki’s athleticism to Calvin Johnson. Zierlein cannot be blamed for that fantasy. Johnson was the second pick in the draft because he was a phenomenal athlete described by Ourlad’s as” possessing a rare combination of measurables, athletic ability, and intelligence”. Gesicki will probably be a second round pick and no one is describing him similarly. Gesicki is like Johnson in the same way that the Bay City Rollers were like the Beatles. For your edification, that would be “not at all”.

      • Stephen J says:

        I am not confused at all Lenny. I am comparing traits not players. While you are confused in thinking I am comparing players and not traits. There is a big difference.

    After Chase Edmonds, my other guy put on quite a show today as well: DJ. Moore

    40 yard: 4.42
    3-cone: 6.95
    20 shuttle: 4.07
    60 shuttle: 11.18
    Broad jump: 39.5″
    Vertical jump: 11′

    He looked good on drills as well. I think he’s a lock in the 2nd round with this.

      Moore is a superb runner, but not a classic wide receiver. He would be a big upgrade on Rex Burkhead, an excellent short yardage receiver who consistently makes the first guy miss. Was there ever any doubt that Moore was a second round pick? I see him routinely mocked 35-45. And if you are looking for a future starter at slot receiver, isn’t Dante Pettis more in the Patriot mold?

      It will be interesting to see how high DJ Chark is drafted after his 4.35. Did the NFL learn anything from the John Ross experience? Fast guys who struggle to get off the line of scrimmage against college cornerbacks tend to fail in the pros.

      Thanks for the site, Mike. Last year’s advocacy of Kareem Hunt turned out to be right when most NFL personnel guys were very wrong about him, and I believe that Darrell Williams is your sleeper this year. What do you think of Tegray Scales for the Patriots? It seems that these guys who are tackling machines in college tend to overperform their combine numbers because of great instincts.

    Duke Ejiofor update

    Duke Ejiofor’s right arm in a sling after labrum surgery three weeks ago. Says he played through it in 2017, resulted from “wear and tear.” Expects to be ready for camp, but 6 month time frame from surgery to 100%

    That brings his recovery time to approx August 10th time frame

    My love for Chase Edmonds grew even more after today. He looked really good in the RB drills, he had a 6.79 3-cone time, a solid 4.55 40-time and also did 19 on bench yesterday. I want him on day 3.

      I like Edmonds too and I see his 3-cone time was the best among the RBs . I wouldn’t mind seeing him on the patriots .
