We are just mere days away from the 2019 NFL Draft, and honestly it can’t come soon enough. Not because we are massive fans and love the event, we are and we do, but it’s because if left in an NFL Draft limbo, well… So with time to kill, we decided to whip up a […]

Dont’a Hightower delivered a dominating performance in Super Bowl LIII, and then he delivered the money quote. “We may not have all the 99 guys on Madden and all that (expletive),” Hightower said, “but we’ve got a good group.” There’s no arguing that. Hightower and Kyle Van Noy were excellent down the stretch. Elandon Roberts continued to progress in his third year. Rookie Ja’Whaun Bentley was a starter in September before suffering a season-ending biceps injury. He looked like a steal in the fifth round of the draft. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”curated” curated_ids=”1677205,1676260″] This unit, which will be coached by Jerod Mayo, is set up perfectly for 2019. Any linebacker drafted by the Patriots is unlikely to make major contributions this season, barring multiple injuries at the position. But the Pats must keep an eye on the future. Hightower has battled through many injuries throughout his career, and there’s no telling how much longer he’ll play. Van Noy and Roberts are entering the final years of their contracts. Even though he’ll be 29 years old when he becomes a free agent, Van Noy could end up landing a solid contract because of his versatility and durability. He’s still improving. The Patriots will need to find a young linebacker who can fill a similar role in the event that Van Noy leaves. Draft history: Ja’Whaun Bentley in 2018 (fifth round); Christian Sam in 2018 (sixth round); Kamu Grugier-Hill in 2016 (sixth round); Elandon Roberts in 2016 (sixth round); Xzavier Dickson in 2015 (seventh round); Jamie Collins in 2013 (second round); Steve Beauharnais in 2013 (seventh round). Current depth: In base defense, the Pats will roll with some three-man combination of Dont’a Hightower, Kyle Van Noy, Ja’Whaun Bentley, and Elandon Roberts. From what we’ve seen so far, Roberts and Bentley are purely off-the-ball linebackers (the sample size on Bentley is small, though). Hightower and Van Noy can play on the line of scrimmage. The Patriots like to use both in passing situations when they go to their amorphous front as part of a nickel or dime package. Veteran John Simon, who re-signed in the offseason, also carved out a role as a pass rusher. Best early-round fit: Germaine Pratt, N.C. State The 6-foot-2, 240-pound Pratt is a converted free safety who, naturally, should provide value in coverage. Pratt also made plays behind the line of scrimmage, racking up 10 tackles for loss and six sacks as a senior. He looks like an option in Round 2 or 3. Best mid-round fit: Jahlani Tavai, Hawaii Tavai averaged 10.3 tackles per game over his final two seasons in college. At 6-foot-2, 250-pounds, Tavai possesses ideal size and athleticism to be a multi-purpose linebacker at the next level. He can be used in coverage, as well as on blitzes. Best late-round fit: Andrew Van Ginkel, Wisconsin Worth a look for the Pats. Van Ginkel is 6-foot-3, 241 pounds with elite agility (6.89 in the three-cone drill) and athleticism (39-inch vertical leap). He comes from a respected college program, too. Possible veteran acquisitions: Jamie Collins Collins was a blossoming star in the Patriots system before being unexpectedly traded in 2016. He spent the past two and a half seasons with the Browns, but was released in March. At 29 years old, Collins should have a few productive years left.
