Every year, there’s always one. From Malcolm Butler to David Andrews to Adam Butler to J.C. Jackson, at least one undrafted free agent has made the Patriots’ opening day 53-man roster. Fifteen straight years — the third-longest such streak in the league.
Is Jakobi Meyers going to be this year’s model?
The wide receiver out of North Carolina State showed plenty of positives during the three-day minicamp earlier this spring. A 6-foot-2, 203-pounder who served almost exclusively as a slot receiver with the Wolfpack, he enters a crowded race for a roster spot. But George McDonald — his position coach at N.C. State and co-offensive coordinator for the Wolfpack — believes Meyers is uniquely suited to outlast his competitors and keep the streak alive in 2019.
