The Scho Show Episode #98: Linebacker might be a need early and often for the Patriots in this year’s draft

LBs and DBs!

With the NFL Draft a week away, it is time to wrap up the position groups here at The Scho Show. In this installment we talk about linebackers and defensive backs.

With players like Elandon Roberts, Jamie Collins and Kyle Van Noy on their way out of town, linebacker might be a need for the New England Patriots both early and often in this draft. Who might make sense at 23? Who might make sense later in the draft? What linebacker is Mark Schofield perhaps way too high on? What other players are fits?

In the second half of the show, we turn our attention to the defensive backs. Cornerback might not be an early need, but there are some Day Two and Day Three type players that fit. In addition, safety is a need, and could be in play at 23. Who are some players to watch at those spots?

You can listen to the episode here. Also make sure to subscribe to the Pats Pulpit Podcasts on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher or Google Podcasts.
