Tight Ends (4)
Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith, Devin Asiasi, Jakob Johnson
This is one of the easiest positions to predict.
Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith will be focal points of the offense after they signed for a combined $87 million this offseason. Devin Asiasi came on at the end of his rookie year and will be a serviceable third-string pass catcher.
While this group could change if Matt LaCosse gets healthy — he was knocked out of last Monday’s joint practice with the Eagles — Jakob Johnson is simply too important to the Patriots’ blocking plans to not make the roster.
Apologies to the injured Dalton Keene, whose time seems to have passed him by.
