Must read from Bedard, with his take on the defensive depth chart. I don’t even know how BB will start to sort all of this out. But it’s clear that the Patriots will have options on the defensive line.
[Bequette] stood up at times at Arkansas so he would seem a natural for the DE/OLB hybrid Elephant position for the Patriots. Considering his experience and pro-ready body, it wouldn’t surprise if he contributes more before than 21st overall pick Chandler Jones – if they play the same position. Doesn’t have great speed, but he’s a try-hard guy that chases after plays and has been productive. He had 10.5 tackles for a loss, 10 sacks and 5 forced fumbles as a senior. He was the Cotton Bowl Defensive MVP with two sacks and a forced fumble.
