The 2024 NFL Draft is officially on the books, so the teams have shifted their focus to undrafted free agency and how best to fill out their roster. The New England Patriots, like every other team in the NFL, will be holding a rookie minicamp to decide on who they want to bring to training camp and compete for roster spots.

The rookie minicamp will include rookies, undrafted or drafted, as well as veterans still looking for their next team. The Patriots under Bill Belichick's leadership have always found success in finding diamonds in the rough during these minicamps. Under Jerod Mayo, New England will try to find some value on the margins ahead of the 2024 campaign.

With that objective in mind, the Patriots are casting a wide net in terms of prospects they are looking to bring in. One of those prospects has an incredibly intriguing positional designation that would have made Belichick salivate.

The Patriots Have A Fascinating Rookie Minicamp Invitee

New England invited defensive tackle/punter prospect Devin Adams from Peru State. At NAIA, Adams earned first-team All-Conference honors twice as a punter, and twice as a defensive lineman, making him a one-of-a-kind player.

This versatility is extremely hard to find as DT/P designation is one I have never seen before. He is likely a long shot to make the Patriots roster but it would be fascinating to see him on an NFL roster at some point. It is unclear where his career will take him but Bill Belichick must surely have his eyes on him already.
