Round Three, Pick 93: C.J. Fiedorowicz (TE, Iowa)

Let’s fix up that tight end position shall we? The Patriots second biggest need in my opinion is tight end, and the Patriots will are almost assuredly take one within the first three rounds of the draft, considering how good this year’s class is. The pick here is C.J. Fiedorowicz of the Iowa Hawkeyes, another one of the big bodied, excellent combination tight ends in this year’s draft. Fiedorowicz is not only a capable receiving tight end, but also brings great blocking, the versatility the Patriots always desire in all of their players. He has great height of 6’5 and 265 pounds, so he has great size to pair with Rob Gronkowski. With tight end, defensive end and offensive guard all filled in the first three rounds, the Patriots would fix arguably all three of their biggest needs, and able to focus on getting great value and key backups in the final four rounds.

Other Options: OLB Christian Kirksey, DT Dominique Easley, ILB Smallwood
