The New England Patriots believe they are onto something with undrafted rookie Kenbrell Thompkins from the University of Cincinnati. He practiced so well that he earned first-team reps by the end of minicamp. ESPN Boston writer Mike Reiss deems Thompkins "the under-the-radar Patriots offensive player who has arguably built more momentum than any other." The 6’0, 193 pounds receiver impressed the coaching staff to the point they felt comfortable releasing WR Donald Jones right before training camp. Thompkins, 25, is older than most rookies and he isn't particularly fast (4.54 in the 40), but must a have good grasp of the offense for the coaches to have confidence putting him up to run with the first team catching passes from Tom Brady.
