That Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is the top candidate to fill upcoming head coaching jobs this offseason, though New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is also pretty high on the list. nfl.com ranks as the 21st-best rookie this season.

No doubt one of the rookie players who is leaving their mark long before the thought is OL Joe Thuney.
The young player coming from North Carolina State has been able to fill one of the available slots within the offensive line after the injuries and absences of several of his most experienced members. Thuney has had such a resounding turnout that many point to being the starter in the left guard position.

On the offensive line this year, though, there might be an opportunity for third-round draft choice Joe Thuney. Thus far, after six training camp practices, he’s made the most of his chances. During team periods, the N.C. State product has been lining up regularly at left guard between left tackle Nate Solder and center David Andrews. He’s also acquitted himself nicely during the daily 1-on-1 pass rush drill against nearly every defensive lineman he’s faced.

This, therefore, should explain to many who were left scratching their heads why New England made Joe Thuney (pronounced TOON-ey) its second overall choice in this year’s draft. His name wasn’t one with whom many casual and even some passionate draft observers were very familiar. No sooner, though, was his name called than the debate began raging over where the versatile offensive lineman would compete for his new team.

So, while many Patriots fans may not have recognized the name Joe Thuney jersey when it was first announced, Uremovich believes they’ll come to know and respect it sooner rather than later. 

“The thing he’s best at is what you see on film: he’s physical, a very good run-blocker, especially in the zone game. He’s athletic, and he’s held up well in pass protection. He’s going to make his name by all of the stuff he does before the game – film study, repetition, technique work, so he can play well on Sundays.”

In the selection of Texas defensive tackle with the 32nd pick of the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft the Patriots checked off one of the team’s top needs.
After a spring that saw the Super Bowl champs lose Vince Wilfork via free agency, Bill Belichick tabbed a guy who in many ways is a younger version of the former Patriots captain and defensive mainstay. Brown is a 320-pound mountain of a man with unique though not unprecedented athleticism for his size.

The pick of Texas defensive tackle Malcom Brown fills a major need in New England and came after a flurry of erroneous reports that the Patriots might be trading out of the first round. Or even up in the first round. Read
In reality Bill Belichick stayed where he was at No. 32 and grabbed the big, athletic, mature defensive tackle who’ll have a shot to replace Vince Wilfork on the defensive front.

The Patriots spent Tuesday morning painting, planting and playing as part of the annual Hometown Huddle, the NFL’s day of community service. Matthew Slater, Jabaal Sheard and teamed up with United Way Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley and paid a visit to Sarah Greenwood School in Dorchester, Mass., on Oct. 18.

Though it was a day off for the Patriots, Matthew, Jabaal, Jordan, Pat Patriot and cheerleaders were hard at work to better the play area of Sarah Greenwood School. Jabaal removed weeds and helped to beautify the landscape with fresh flowers and shrubs. Matthew sanded down and painted benches, which will be used to create an outdoor classroom space. Jordan ran relay races and tossed footballs with students in a Play 60 event.

Neither player was able to garner the eight votes necessary for induction, however, so each was among the nine nominations put forth by the committee.

The Patriots have been known to take some unconventional routes at times in the draft and this year could very well present a couple of opportunities to do so again. In the past the Patriots have rolled the dice on injured players, understanding that they wouldn’t likely be available in the first year but recognizing the potential value of getting a first-round talent much later due to the injury.
