The likelihood that all these players fall into the Patriots hands are somewhat slim but not unrealistic.
Many might point to T.J Hockenson and say he will be long gone before the 32nd pick. Actually, Hockenson by no fault of his own, might slide down draft boards just due to free agent signings and teams having bigger needs than tight end. Despite Hockenson’s unreal potential, teams will not so much pass him up but will more pass up the tight end position all together.
That being said, if Hockenson is gone before the 32nd pick, the Patriots will most likely have a choice between Noah Fanta and Irv Smith. Both tight ends are also tremendous, however, Hockenson remains my favorite tight end prospect in a long time.
