Don’t be surprised if the Patriots add some kick coverage depth to their roster at or right after the draft. Cassh Maluia was released, and Brandon King hasn’t played in two years. Insurance wouldn’t be a bad thing Grant Stuard could fill that role. A four-year contributor and former captain for Houston, he was an All-AAC linebacker in 2020 but his size and range project him as a core special teams player at the next level. He plays with a high motor and isn’t afraid of contact, which is what teams will be looking for. After an impressive Senior Bowl performance, the Patriots may consider grabbing him in the seventh round instead of risking trying to get him as a UDFA.
