BSMW SUMMARY (as of 3/31/07)

Pundits near and far invariably drop the name ‘Patriots’ whenever the discussion turns to Gonzalez, the junior slot man that teamed up with first round prospect Ted Ginn, Jr. at TOSU. They claim to see something Patriotic in both the style and substance; the profiles say Gonzalez is a quick, precise route runner and dependable possession receiver with strong work ethic and intelligence. Can work the sidelines or go across the middle. Has good speed and a little burst after the catch. But the profiles say he’s not a home run threat, and they wonder if he might be too slight for the more physical play of the NFL. In the end, the consensus seems to be that he may not be a star, but he’ll be a solid contributor. Albert Breer reported a week or two ago that the Patriots were displaying a keen interest in the early entry. Pro Football Weekly’s mock projects they’ll use pick 28 on Gonzalez; the others see him as a mid second rounder.
