The Patriots will open the 2020 season with an inexperienced group of offensive talent.
The New England Patriots’ 2020 season is already here, and the team has prepared a handful of young and inexperienced players to take the field on offense against the Miami Dolphins.
With a new quarterback leading the way in Cam Newton, the Patriots have only equipped him with one veteran receiver (Julian Edelman) along with a trio of sophomore talents in N’keal Harry, Gunner Olszewski and Jakobi Meyers.
This trio had opportunities last season as rookies and should have a firm grasp of what to expect in their second year considering each of them is essentially next in line in the Patriots’ receiving group.
On the other hand, Damiere Byrd is entering his fifth NFL season after going undrafted in 2015 and has experience playing with Newton during their time in Carolina from 2016-2018. The rapport between the two could prove to be successful as they’re both learning a new system here in New England.
It’s fair to say that the offensive weaponry as a whole is essentially on a freshly clean slate this season. It’s also fair to accept that with the inexperienced and rookie players that there are going to be obvious struggles along the way, especially at the start of the season.
That being said, let’s take a look at three rookies who will have opportunities to stand out on offense this season for the Patriots.
