4. Josh Uche, EDGE
Even though there have been a ton of rumors regarding Josh Uche possibly being traded over the last handful of months, I think he's the type of pressure player that Bill Belichick will want on his team.
You can't help but wonder though with some comments he's made recently...
"The organization would love me to be here, and I would love to be here as well. There’s just some fine-tuning and some things and details that need to be worked out to make it a possibility."- Josh Uche
You almost can't help but think if Belichick leaves that possibly a change of scenery for them both -- but together -- could work out for the best.
5. Kyle Dugger, Safety
There's no doubt that Kyle Dugger is a Bill Belichick guy. The Patriots somewhat shockingly selected Dugger with the 37th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and that was shocking even with a lot of NFL Draft experts really liking what Dugger brought to the table.
Dugger has nine interceptions (and counting) over the last three seasons and has at least five tackles for loss in each of the last three years. He's an absolute stud, and I think there's no doubt Bill Belichick would want him as a centerpiece of his defense.
