Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com believes Julian Edelman will be the Patriots’ number two receiver heading into the regular season.
I think Edelman is the team’s No. 2 receiver on opening day if he is healthy. I also wouldn’t undersell his athleticism and speed. Naturally, losing part of the offseason as he rehabs his foot wasn’t ideal, but I think one of the main things he has going for him is a trust built up with Tom Brady and a knowledge of the offense. If he’s healthy on the opening day of camp, I think he’ll quickly elevate to close to the top of the depth chart.
I think by default alone, Edelman is the Patriots second best receiver. Can’t think of anyone better than him other than Danny Amendola.
