Patriots Private Workout: Hillsdale WR Andre Holmes

The Patriots are working out another late-round receiver.  According to a tweet from Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the Patriots are scheduled to hold a private workout with Hillsdale wide receiver Andre Holmes.

Holmes, a 6'4" 210 pound receiver, impressed a lot of scouts by running a 4.51 40 yard dash at the combine last month.  While he doesn't have elite speed, he certainly showed enough vertical ability to be an intriguing prospect.  With his size, Holmes isn't afraid to go up and make the tough catch over the middle.  He isn't a great route runner, and often relies on his height to out-man defenders and go up and get the ball (not always necessarily a bad thing).

Holmes is considered a developmental prospect that figures to get some consideration late, or as a priority free agent.  One thing that has caught my eye recently, considering the recent report of a private workout with Chris Matthews of Kentucky, is that the Patriots may be looking for a bigger receiver to compliment their so called "smurfs."  If one of these taller receivers intrigues the Patriots, I wouldn't be surprised to see the team use a fifth or sixth round pick on a players such as Holmes or Matthews.
