Today, the Patriots have workout scheduled with two first round prospects.
The two prospects are Cornerback Antoine Cason and Defensive End / Outside Linebacker Quentin Groves.
Both players have been flying up the boards recently, and could go anywhere from the 18-40 range.
Groves could be a potential replacement to Rosevelt Colvin. He would project as an outside linebacker in the 3-4, and could play end in certain sub-packages. He’s one of those guys with a combination of size, strength, and speed, and could really make an impact on this team.
Cason looks like a future star at corner. He’s got the size at just above 6′, he ran a 4.48 40 yard dash, and has terrific ball skills. Potential replacement to Asante Samuel? We’ll see.
One thing I can guarantee you: the Patriots will draft a corner and/or linebacker in the first three rounds. Just take a look at the visits: all linebackers and corners except for Run DMC.
