6. Bill Murray
Returning to the o-line, I’m standing by my assertion that the Pats are probably carrying eight offensive linemen. And that if we carry nine then it’s probably Connor McDermott as the ninth.
Those eight would be the five starters plus our three mid-round linemen Sidy Sow, Jake Andrews and Atonio Mafi. The Pats spent two fourth and one fifth-round pick on the line for a reason. Belichick wants to get young and is clearly unhappy with the current depth there.
Well unfortunately for Bill Murray, he’s part of that “current depth.”
He’s a fun story. An undrafted free agent defensive tackle who made the conversion over to the offensive side of the ball. He even made it onto the active roster in 2022.
But this draft sent a loud and clear message about how the coaching staff views this offensive line. Murray may one day develop into a real contributor up front (though I wouldn’t count on it), but for now if he is going to stick in New England then it’s going to be on the practice squad.
