As if Felger & Mazz couldn't get more insufferable, their annual Big Board pretty much can't go a year without predicting one or more Patriots draft picks. These guys make a mockery of all the in-depth draft analysis consuming so many lives. Routinely!
But the Patriots holding a pre-draft meeting with a prospect can often be a tell. And the Felger & Mazz Big Board ended up matching 13 of their 41 picks with the Patriots' reported meetings heading into the 2020 NFL Draft.
Regardless of anyone's take on these prospects, it's just worth getting to know the names because they could very well become Patriots as soon as Thursday night. If you tracked all of their pre-draft meetings in 2019, you would have been familiar with the names N'Keal Harry, Joejuan Williams, and Jarrett Stidham. Felger & Mazz pretty much sold their souls to Satan himself so the Big Board could nail the Harry and Williams picks.
Anyway here's who both met with the Patriots and appears on the 2020 Felger & Mazz Big Board.
QB Jake Fromm, Georgia
C Jake Hanson, Oregon
WR K.J. Hill, Ohio State
QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma
G Solomon Kindley, Georgia
WR Jalen Reagor, TCU
C Cesar Ruiz, Michigan
T Alex Taylor, South Carolina State
DT Raekwon Davis, Alabama
LB Patrick Queen, LSU
CB Amik Robertson, Louisiana Tech
DT Raequan Williams, Michigan State
DE Robert Windsor, Penn State
When it comes to prospects like Raekwon Davis or Patrick Queen ... wouldn't mind the Big Board being right again.
