2. Braxton Berrios
There is no late-round pick with as high expectations as wide receiver Braxton Berrios.
Given the New England Patriots current lack of wide receiver depth, the second-year receiver out of the University of Miami is one player fans are looking towards to become a favorite target of Tom Brady.
Playing behind Julian Edelman, the 2018 sixth-round pick will certainly have the inspiration to succeed, but will he have the opportunity?
With his ability to return punts and kickoffs, he should at least see some time on the field in that capacity. Depending on what else the team does at the wide receiver position, Berrios could see some time in the slot where he will get the chance to prove whether or not he is the next great slot receiver for the Patriots.
With his athleticism, ability to return kicks and extreme heart, Braxton Berrios could morph into a fan favorite quickly. But first he will have to battle to make the roster. As of right now, he has the inside track of being the team’s backup slot receiver and perhaps their primary kickoff returner.
Definitely shades of both Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola.
