The New England Patriots have to endure a long wait on Day 3 of the 2013 NFL Draft. After selecting TCU wide receiver Josh Boyce at No. 102 overall, the fifth pick of the day, the Patriots are not on the clock again until Round 7, when the Patriots will have three picks in a 10-pick span.

With their first five picks, the Patriots have drafted two wide receivers, two defensive backs and a versatile outside linebacker/defensive end. In Round 7, the Patriots should focus on finding value in hidden gems rather than focusing on specific needs, but could look to add depth on the offensive line, defensive front seven, or even more talent at wide receiver or the secondary.

Here are six players who could still be on the board in Round 7 that would make sense for the Patriots:

Update: The Patriots traded one of their seventh-round picks, No. 229 overall, to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers along with running back Jeff Demps in exchange for running back LeGarrette Blount. The Patriots still hold the No. 226 and No. 235 overall selections.

It has taken Mike Leach longer than expected to get his offense installed and up to speed at Washington State. This week Leach’s Cougars took on an offense that scores with ease, basically whenever they want to.

This Oregon team is loaded with talented players, who possess NFL caliber speed on both sides of the ball. A lot of attention gets paid to the offense but, the best Oregon prospect might be on their defense. Check out the scouting notes on this Pac-12 showdown.


Prolific Washington State Wideout Marquess Wilson an Intriguing Possibility in ’13

The New England Patriots’ complicated contract negotiations with franchise player Wes Welker were among the organization’s most frequently-discussed storylines this offseason, and despite Welker’s decision to sign the franchise tender before the beginning of the regular season, the wide receiver’s future in New England remains as unclear as ever.

Welker has been on the field for just 105 of New England’s 149 offensive snaps (70.5%) after lining up on 1,211 of the Patriots’ 1,362 snaps last season (88.9%), including the playoffs. Welker’s reduced role with the club has been complimented by Julian Edelman’s increasing presence; Edelman participated in just 120 snaps last season but has already seen 98 snaps in 2012. Edelman was also on the field to begin the game against Arizona in Welker’s place; the 26-year old ultimately played in 75 of the Patriots’ 82 snaps in week two.

These factors have encouraged speculation that Welker’s role in the office is diminishing, that 2012 will be his last season in New England, and even that the Patriots have been scaling back his responsibilities in advance of a trade before the NFL’s October 30th deadline.

New England had been linked with wide receiver prospects even prior to the beginning of the regular season, and should a divorce occur between the Patriots and Welker, addressing the position will appear even more necessary. One intriguing prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft is Washington State Cougars split end Marquess Wilson.
