Patriots HC Bill Belichick spotted at Alabama Pro Day

New, comments

The Patriots HC is working out Alabama prospects.

The Patriots head coach is busy scouting prospects for the 2017 draft. After being spotted in Tennessee last night, Bill Belichick is in Tuscaloosa. Alabama HC Nick Saban is a former Belichick assistant and his defense is very similar to what tge Patriots run. These Alabama players will likely get their name called in the draft:

DL Jonathan Allen

TE OJ Howard

LB Reuben Foster

EDGE Tim Williams

EDGE Ryan Anderson

CB Marlon Hunphrey

S Eddie Jackson

WR Ardarius Stewart

OT Cam Robinson

DL Dalvin Tomlinson

The Patriots have long term needs at most of these positions, including DL and EDGE so I wouldn't be surprised if another Bama product ends up in New England. The Patriots have drafted Xzavier Dickson, Cyrus Jones, Brandon Deaderick, and Dont'a Hightower out of Saban's program.
