In this fourth and final Weekly 5 until the 2021 NFL Draft, we put the spotlight on five more prospects at five different positions. Some fill pressing needs while others are more long-term fits. But all five certainly have traits that could interest the Patriots this weekend at the draft.

Louisville wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick headlined our first batch of prospects, with Auburn speedster Anthony Schwartz making an appearance in Part 2. After taking a receiver breather last week, we’re back to it in Part 4 with an intriguing prospect who caught passes from Zach Wilson at BYU.

Also in this week’s group is a name that will sound familiar to fans who watched the NFL in the ’90s and 2000s, a running back from Oklahoma State who could be a good value on day 3, a versatile linebacker from one of the top programs in the country, and a guard/tackle who lined up against NFL-caliber pass-rushers in the Big-10.
