I'm sure there's a lot of demands on a head coach. Since Scott Pioli departed there's probably been more demands. I think we'd be hard pressed to find a better "scout" for the Patriots than Bill Belichick. As head coach, there's probably noone better qualified than he to evaluate talent.
So, when Belichick uses a chunk of his precious to privately evaluate a player, you can bet there's interest. Thus is the case with Florida's TE Cornelius Ingram. You won't hear that name a lot because he's labeled by many draft boards as a second or third rounder. At 6-4 245 lbs, he's a bit small for a TE and needs to bulk up to shed blocks. Many of his deficiencies, as reported by draftcountdown.com, might be fixable. Maybe the kid has a chip on is shoulder and has something to prove, the kind of kid that will work harder than everyone else. Who knows.
When Bill schedules a private workout, there's interest. Here's hoping Bill turn him into something dangerous.
