Patriots beyond the first round: Safety

A majority of the media coverage entering the NFL draft focuses on the first round, so the "beyond the first round" series is meant to fill out the picture for the New England Patriots, who enter the draft with nine selections, beginning with the final pick of the first round (No. 32).

The "beyond the first round" series continues with safety, attempting to identify good fits for the team:

Second round: Damarious Randall (Arizona State) -- The 5-foot-10 7/8, 196-pound Randall is a cover safety who could move down and play the star position (slot corner). He runs well (4.46 in the 40) and had other strong testing results that put him near the top of what is viewed by media analysts as a weak overall safety class. He attended community college for two years before enrolling at Arizona State in 2013 and amassing 177 tackles over his two seasons, showing he's also a willing tackler.

Patriots beyond the first round: Wild cards

A majority of the media coverage entering the NFL draft focuses on the first round, so the "beyond the first round" series is meant to fill out the picture for the New England Patriots, who enter the draft with nine selections, beginning with the final pick of the first round (No. 32).

The "beyond the first round" series continues with a "wild card" category, attempting to identify good fits for the team with players who might be overlooked or who don't fit into a traditional box but have desirable traits that could be developed (this is the category that produced last year's hit on prospect Zach Moore):

Quick-hit thoughts around Patriots, NFL

Quick-hit thoughts around the NFL and with the New England Patriots:

1. One of the more interesting things I learned over the last week is that Patriots second-year offensive tackle Cameron Fleming (6-foot-6, 325 pounds) has devoted more time in his offseason training to the guard position. The fourth-round draft pick out of Stanford worked with Sparta Performance Science in California, altering the focus of his training regimen in hopes of improving his movement skills (less rotational, more linear) with a focus on the more prevalent side-to-side movements at guard. Fleming started one game at right guard last season (Sept. 29 at Kansas City), but didn't get a long look there after injuring his hand in that game and missing the next five contests (and later another four with an ankle injury). By the time he returned, veteran Ryan Wendell had locked down the position. Other than Fleming's one start at right guard, his primary role was as an eligible receiver/extra blocking tight end at the end of the line of scrimmage, but it sounds like the Patriots want to take an extended look at him at guard in 2015.

'Two rings in one year' for New England Patriots right tackle Sebastian Vollmer

Winning his first Super Bowl championship and getting married has made this quite the stretch for New England Patriots seven-year veteran right tackle Sebastian Vollmer.

“Two rings in one year,” he happily noted Sunday in an interview with Bob Socci on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s draft preview show.

Vollmer, who played in every game last season except for the season finale when he was rested, had his time to celebrate the Super Bowl title. That time, he told Socci on 98.5, is officially over.
