. . Luke McCaffrey. player. Wide receiver. Luke McCaffrey. 5. 2279. Patriots 5th rounder.

Why not double dip at a position they need to improve the most? That's why, in the 5th round, the Patriots picked Luke McCaffrey out of Rice University.

On top of that, he's also a versatile player, as he even recorded triple digits on the ground each year during his college career, totaling 927 yards and 7 rushing touchdowns.

The 6'2" receiver could have impressive traits, and his build would make him one of the taller receivers on the team, something the Patriots have needed to improve over the years. He has proven he can get the job done, nearing 1,000 yards last year and averaging 13.3 yards per catch during his time in Texas.

If the trend of Swiss army knife-like players continues to be desirable in New England, even under Mayo, McCaffrey fits the bill. He gives the offense more options than the average receiver since he can also break through a defense on the ground.
