Mikel Leshoure Visits Patriots

Mikel Leshoure NFL Draft

Is Mikel Leshoure the next Corey Dillon or closer to Laurence Maroney?

Former Illinois running back Mikel Leshoure made a visit to the New England Patriots facilities today, according to a report from Ian Rappaport of the Boston Herald.

Leshoure was a somewhat surprising early entry into the 2011 NFL Draft, but has been steadily climbing up many draft boards of the NFL Draft media members.

A bigger back at 5’11” and 227 pounds, Leshoure would project to be a brusining 3-down runner for the Patriots a la Corey Dillon. He has some skills in the passing game, but isn’t quite in the same class as Kevin Faulk and Danny Woodhead.

We’ve compared Leshoure to Laurence Maroney before, which never makes Patriots fans happy. Leshoure has questionable (to be nice) vision in our opinion, and produces too many negative plays. Compared to a Ben-Jarvus Green-Ellis, i’m not sure that Leshoure would be much of an upgrade.

The Patriots have drafted a cornerback in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft in each of the last three years - perhaps 2011 won't be any different.

Former Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara, who has been near the top of our cornerback ratings all year, has an official visit scheduled with the New England Patriots – according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network.
