5. Jonathan Jones
With Malcolm Butler, Logan Ryan, Cyrus Jones and Jonathan Coleman roster locks, this undrafted rookie is leading the way for the No. 5 spot. Jones just has to keep showing well in preseason games, especially in one-on-one coverage against taller wideouts, to prove that his slightly undersized frame can handle the NFL.
4. Cre’von Leblanc
The releases of V’Angelo Bentley and E.J. Biggers indicate that LeBlanc is higher up on the depth chart than he was at the start of camp, and another one-handed interception might push him onto the final Patriots roster, or at least a practice squad spot.
3. Darryl Roberts
Roberts has been up and down this preseason, but the 6-foot corner is on par with Jones and LeBlanc entering the final week of August.
