Dipping our toe in some early draft waters to bring you an all-Patriots Senior Bowl team featuring players that would be good additions for what they like to do, and then we'll get into some tidbits on new offensive assistant Jedd Fisch...


QB Jordan Love, Utah State (6-4, 223): Obviously Justin Herbert is the higher-rated player and is closer to being game-ready if Tom Brady should move on to another team, but Love has the better tools ... he just needs a lot more polish. Very good arm and a good athlete, you'll hear Patrick Mahomes comparisons that will be way off base.

RB Joshua Kelly, UCLA (5-11, 214): The Senior Bowl is a tough place for backs to standout in the running game but Kelly looked the part of a dual-threat with his ability to separate in coverage.
