FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots have needed speed on the outside for some time, and they’ve found some in this year’s draft.
First, it was the monstrous frame and freakish athleticism of Aaron Dobson in the second round. On Saturday, they added wideout athlete with crazy potential.
Josh Boyce is one of the best athletes in this draft, and he has the ability to be a real gamebreaker on the outside. He’s a bit undersized at just 5-foot-11, but his speed more than makes up for it. He ran a 4.38 40-yard dash at the NFL combine, and he thinks it would have been even faster if not for his broken foot.
“Probably but you never know,” Boyce said of posting a faster 40 time. “I’m just glad it worked out.”
He spent the past three seasons blazing down the sidelines at TCU, and now he’ll have the chance to do so in New England. And for Tom Brady, too. But Boyce isn’t intimidated by Brady’s prowess as a quarterback. He’s played with NFL quarterbacks before.
In high school, Boyce’s quarterback wa

Dobson was one of the highest ranked Wide Receiver prospects, and the Patriots now get their guy to replace Brandon Lloyd
He is a bigger receiver to maybe finally give Tom Brady someone to throw the ball up to on the outside. Dobson is 6-3 and from Marshall. Remind you of anyone? (Randy Moss was 6-4 out of Marshall). He is also known for having great hands.
Mike Mayock did say...

12:25 p.m.: It’s nice to see New England take a player we’ve heard of and watched. He’s a slot receiver out of TCU and destroyed teh combine with a 4.34-second 40-yard dash and 6.68-second 3-cone time. The Patriots have got to love that 3-cone agility.
Boyce can play the Z-receiver role, or the slot. He’s fast and shifty, but had some injuries. He piled up 2,535 yards and...
