2011 NFL Draft: Wide Receiver Prospects the New England Patriots Should Target

February 14, 2011   ·     ·   Jump to comments

The New England Patriots have never successfully drafted and developed a receiver (except Deion Branch), but that doesn't mean they won't try again.
I already stated my case that the Patriots need to add a receiver who can get off a jam. Even if Taylor Price is in their future plans, how much longer are Wes Welker and Deion Branch going to be around?
So it's worth it to look at adding some youth at wide receiver, but who fits the bill in the draft?
The Patriots don't just need another young receiver. Their biggest receiver is 6-1 Brandon Tate, so the Patriots could benefit from adding some size at the wide receiver position. Of course, it's not about the size of the dog in the fight; it's the size of the fight in the dog, and the Patriots know that so much more than physical attributes and tangibles go into a football player.
