3. Hunter Renfrow, WR

If the Patriots are satisfied with Kendrick Bourne on the outside and want to acquire a legitimate slot wide receiver, then Hunter Renfrow is a perfect candidate. The Las Vegas Raiders are headed no where fast, especially after losing badly to the lowly Chicago Bears. Davante Adams is upset and wants out. Josh Jacobs has been frustrated. The quarterback position is a question mark.

Not to mention, Renfrow has been on the trade block for months now. He's an easy target to be had at a relatively low price. Renfrow would be a great addition and asset for Mac Jones. Many times this year, Jones has struggled to find open targets. One easy solution for that problem? Get him more open targets, of course.

All right, that doesn't quite make perfect sense, but you get it.

Renfrow is great at getting open and using his body to frame himself toward the quarterback, making it simpler on them. Going after Renfrow wouldn't cost the Patriots more than a conditional sixth rounder, and that's a steal for a former Pro Bowler just a couple of seasons ago.
