The fifth round of the 2019 NFL draft is underway, and for the New England Patriots it is a busy one: after already moving up to grab defensive lineman Byron Cowart earlier in the round, the world champions have moved up the board again — this time trading with the Philadelphia Eagles:
Patriots get: 5-163
Eagles get: 5-167 + 7-246
With the 163rd overall selection, the Patriots then drafted a punter:
#163: Jake Bailey
Size: 6013, 200 lbs
Quick-hit analysis: Adding Stanford punter Jake Bailey in the fifth round will make for an interesting camp competition this summer: New England re-signed Ryan Allen in free agency, and will now have him compete against the rookie. Bailey was voted to the second All-Pac-12 team in both 2017 and 2018.
How would you grade the Patriots’ selection of Jake Bailey?
