  • Karen Guregian thumbnails the top five new players she believes will have the most impact in 2019, beginning with the honorable mentions.
  • Ryan Hannable counts down the 15 most important Patriots players for 2019. No. 15 Jamie Collins.
  • Christopher Simoneau (FullPressCoverage) Meet the new Patriots: DE Chase Winovich.
  • Luke O’Brien, Adam Myers (FullPressCoverage) Patriots undrafted free agent profiles: TE Andrew Beck - WR Jakobi Meyers.
  • David Latham (LastWordOnSports) Patriots X-Factors: WR Josh Gordon.

  • Karen Guregian takes another early crack at projecting the Patriots 53-man roster. This time around, WR Jakobi Meyers edges out Braxton Berrios.
  • Darren Hartwell notes Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph says there was never ‘any real opportunity’ with Patriots.
  • Nick Goss talks about Pro Football Focus’ finding that Ben Roethlisberger has the highest overall grade against the Patriots since 2006. /Which begs the question, if the Pats usually win the game, does it even matter?

“Sure to upset the #QBWINZ crowd, Roethlisberger comes out as the top-graded player against the Patriots despite being just 4-8 against Brady and company. The tape shows, however, that the subpar record hasn’t been his fault. Big Ben’s touchdown to interception ratio of 18-to-10 doesn’t overly impress, but his big-time throw to turnover-worthy play ratio of 28:8 is much more impressive. The discrepancy indicates that luck hasn’t been on his side in the matchup, but that doesn’t detract from him playing at a high level.”
