The undrafted rookie faces the tough challenge of making a deep Patriots linebacker corps." Patriots AnalysisPatriots Player ProfilesPatriots Offseason CoverageNew England Patriots 2019 roster breakdown: #TBD LB Terez HallNew White Ryan Allen Jerseys ,12commentsThe undrafted rookie faces the tough challenge of making a deep Patriots linebacker corps.EDTThe New England Patriots, who will be off until training camp starts later this month, currently have 89 players on their active roster. However, only 53 of them will be able to survive the cutdowns on August 31 and ultimately make the team. Over the course of the summer, we will take a look at the players fighting for those spots to find out who has the best chances of helping the Patriots defend their Super Bowl title.Today, the series continues with another one of New England’s undrafted rookie signings.Name: Terez HallPosition: LinebackerJersey number: TBD (offseason #68)Opening day age: 22Experience: RookieSize: 6’2, 235 lbs.2018 review: After establishing himself as Missouri’s starting weakside linebacker during his 2017 junior season, Terez Hall was able to take another step in his development over the course of his senior campaign: appearing in all thirteen of the Tigers’ games, the team captain proved himself a physical run defender and a disruptive pass rusher — and one of the most reliable players on his school’s defense.According to advanced analytics website Pro Football Focus, Hall finished the year with 17 quarterback pressures — 4.0 sacks, 3 hits, 10 hurries — on 91 pass rushing snaps. He furthermore added 26 run stops out of 60 total tackles (he also missed 8 tackle attempts), as well as the first interception of his collegiate career. On top of it all, he also forced a fumble while proving himself a productive linebacker.Even though he had a solid senior season and was invited to participate in the NFL’s scouting combine, however, Hall did not hear his name called on draft day. His undersized stature in combination with some spotty decision making and an inconsistent feel for the game contributed to this — despite his solid résumé and some developmental upside on defense and in the kicking game.2019 preview: When the Patriots signed Hall during the first wave of undrafted free agency, they added him to an already crowded linebacker corps — one that got only deeper when the club re-signed Jamie Collins Sr. in mid-May. While Collins is no lock to make the team, he is a serious candidate to earn one of the roster spots at the position alongside Dont’a Hightower, Kyle Van Noy and Ja’Whaun Bentley.This, in turn, leaves Hall competing for the fifth spot at best. Even that does seem a bit likea stretch, though, at this point in time: the undrafted rookie, who has $85 Ryan Allen Jerseys 2019 ,000 in his contract, currently also appears to be behind Elandon Roberts and Christian Sam on the linebacker depth chart. Realistically, he will therefore spend his summer fighting not to make the 53-man team but New England’s 10-man practice squad.In order to achieve this, Hall will have to prove himself a quick learner and a versatile player capable of making the most out of his reps on both defense and special teams. If he can do that on a consistent basis during training camp and the Patriots’ four preseason games, the team might be willing to keep Hall around as emergency linebacker depth on the practice squad. If not, however, his stint in New England will be a short one.

But what if he hadn’t made that decision? What would the last year and a half look like for the New England Patriots?Before I start, you need to understand, no matter what anyone tried to tell you, the Patriots would not have been able to keep both Tom Brady and Garoppolo. Because of that, I’m just going to be talking about the past and future of the Patriots if they had traded Brady instead of Garoppolo. Also, let’s assume that the Patriots wouldn’t have traded Brady mid season, meaning he still wins MVP, and then throws for the most yards in Super Bowl history in 2017, and then the Patriots trade him in the offseason. That sentence hurt my brain, but let’s take a look anyway. First, there’s the matter of what the Patriots would’ve gotten in return for Brady. This is more complicated than you might think. Trading Tom Brady would be like trying to sell the Mona Lisa. You’d get a ton in return, but whatever you got wouldn’t be enough. They are both truly priceless, items so valuable that you will never be able to receive full value in exchange.Let’s put that aside and think like an NFL GM for a second, though. Who would be willing to trade for Brady? You would think that it would have to be a team that feels they are just a quarterback away from at least making the playoffs. Because, no matter how dominant Brady is right now White James Develin Jerseys , realistically, he only has a few years left.Why would the Browns have traded the #1 pick to the Patriots for Brady? Instead, you could draft Baker Mayfield and have him for the rest of his career. In all likelihood, the Browns weren’t going to be great any time soon (they might be pretty good this year, but no one would’ve predicted that last offseason), and it’s better to have a young QB who can be the face of your team and franchise for the next 10-15 years when you’re in that situation.So that means the Patriots are probably getting a mid to late first round pick, and, even if you’re getting multiple picks, I can’t imagine that would be enough. Let’s say that Belichick ended up pulling the trigger anyway, and making the trade. Does that then create a cascade of changes? Do they hold onto Brandin Cooks instead of trading him for #23 in 2028? Do they draft Sony Michel at #31 in 2018 (if they even get thatslot with Garoppolo at the helm)? They also wouldn’t have been able to make as many trades in the second round, because most of them came from the pick they got for Garoppolo.Would you feel a little better about the trade if you knew that Michel was the running back, and the Patriots still had Cooks? Probably not, but I think they’d still be decent. Maybe they still would’ve traded for Trent Brown but, without a tackle waiting behind him, perhaps they would’ve tried to keep him.It’s also hard to imagine that they would’ve done into Garoppolo’s first season as a starter with the receiver depth chart looking the way it did at the beginning of last season. At the same time, Belichick has always built his team with the next five years in mind, so perhaps it wouldn’t have looked so different after all. It’s certainly not as simple as just swapping Brady out for Garoppolo, but what the exact team would look like is impossible to know. One thing is a certainty, the Patriots wouldn’t have won Super Bowl 53 this season with Garoppolo at quarterback. Regardless of whether or not he ended up tearing his ACL, I can’t imagine hin leading the Patriots to the title this year. So that’s one title that the Patriots would have sacrificed to make the change, and who knows how many more Brady will win before he hangs them up.Now, some people in the media have been trying for years to convince you that Garoppolo was the next great QB, and that it was time to move on from Brady to the next phase of the dynasty. The real question, however James Develin Jerseys 2019 , is whether or not Garoppolo could play well enough, and for long enough, to justify the decision in the long run. Unfortunately, there is no way to know the answer to that. Even if he is never truly elite in San Francisco, he might’ve had a different set of circumstances, and better coaching, in New England that would’ve allowed him to be more successful. In the end, we should all be very thankful that Belichick didn’t listen to those talking heads, and decided to keep Brady instead of Garoppolo. Even though there has been much made about the return they got from the trade, I think we can all agree they did just fine. The Patriots would have certainly given up the short term success they had last year, and could have this year. But, they would be banking on the success of the years after Brady retires. They did the right thing, but there’s something even more incredible to me.In 2013, Felger and Mazz asked the question of whether you’d trade Brady for Andrew Luck, who was drafted first overall in 2012. They thought you should, and Brady has not only proven them wrong about Luck, but is still playing, and has proven them wrong about Garoppolo as well. Belichick drafted Garoppolo to potentially be Brady’s successor, but Brady wasn’t ready to give up the throne just yet. Hopefully, the Patriots’ head honcho is able to find a successor as good as Garoppolo in the future. Otherwise, whether they made the right decision in trading Jimmy or not, there might be some tough years once Brady retires.
