Jordan Strachan - South Carolina

He’s 6 feet 5 inches tall, weighs 243 lbs., and clocked a 4.7 40-yard dash time. But he plays quicker than that. He has the speed to go around left tackles or have them nervously shifting to the outside, leaving room for the likes of Barmore to operate in. 

The one thing the Patriots' defense lacked after Marcus Jones, Christian Gonzalez, and Matt Judon suffered their injuries was speed. Strachan isn't Marcus Jones fast, but his fluid movement ability to beat blockers would be an excellent foil for the likes of White, Barmore, and Deatrich Wise Jr.
