By Jaclyn Cashman | PUBLISHED: April 29, 2019 at 8:39 pm | UPDATED: April 29, 2019 at 9:00 pm Chase Winovich, the golden-haired defensive gem drafted 77th by the Patriots, is the team’s latest link to President Trump. Is this a new prerequisite to join the squad? Tom Brady has golfed with the president and it turns out Winovich also teed up with the leader of the free world. About a year and a half ago Winovich spotted the president playing golf and approached him despite being warned to stay away by the Secret Service. “Chase ended up getting on the course with President Trump,” Peter Winovich Jr., Chase’s dad, said at the time. “He has his arm around him like they are drinking buddies. Yeah, then, it ends up that Chase is playing video games with Trump’s son Barron. That’s just Chase. He leaves no stone unturned.” Winovich appears to already know how to live the Patriot way. Patriots owner Robert Kraft calls Trump a friend. Coach … [Read more...] about New England Patriots draft pick is team’s latest link to Trump

Soon after the Patriots drafted Maryland defensive lineman Byron Cowart in the fifth round Saturday, the rookie revealed he worked out for New England in the months leading up to the draft.And then he shared a little bit more.Asked whom he worked out for, Cowart said, "It was the D-line coach.”Officially, the Patriots do not have a defensive line coach. They have yet to announce who has replaced former defensive line coach Brendan Daly, who left this offseason to take the same position with the Chiefs. In fact, New England currently recognizes only one position coach on its defensive staff: safeties coach Steve Belichick. So who was the mystery D-line coach?“Coach Covington,” Cowart said.Cowart likely referenced DeMarcus Covington, a New England coaching assistant since 2017. Last season, Covington worked closely with Patriots linebackers, while linebackers coach Brian Flores — now the head coach of the Dolphins — assumed a greater role and took over … [Read more...] about New England Patriots draft pick reveals who the Patriots’ unannounced defensive line coach could be

Instinctively Clemson defensive line coach Todd Bates pulled Dexter Lawrence out of the drill, after five consecutive runs in their first practice working together during the spring of 2017. Lawrence, a 6-foot-4, 340-pound defensive tackle stepped out surprised. Bates thought a man Lawrence’s size would be winded.“Somebody his size should be blowed after five reps moving that weight around,” said Bates, who played defensive line at Alabama. “He was looking at me not even breathing hard. He said ‘Coach, you know I could have given you five more.’ His play capacity is like 13 plays before he needs a blow.” It wasn’t the last time Lawrence would impress Bates. The North Carolina native was literally and figuratively a huge part of the Tigers’ defensive line, a unit that was the backbone of the team’s national championship run. He and Springfield native Christian Wilkins are both expected to be first round picks. After the season, … [Read more...] about NFL Draft 2019: Dexter Lawrence, a potential New England Patriots draft target, is good now, still improving according to Clemson DL coach
Eight down, one to go. Nearly two months after being drafted, offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn has signed his contract with the New England Patriots, according to ESPN's Field Yates. The deal is for four years with a team option on the fifth season. With Wynn on board, running back Sony Michel is the lone member of the Patriots' nine-man draft class who has not signed his contract. A standout at Georgia, Wynn was the No. 23 overall pick in April's draft. He projects as a starter on New England's offensive line this season. Wynn has the ability to play both guard and tackle; he saw time on the interior during the team's spring practices. Wynn is the third offensive lineman selected in the first round by the Patriots since Bill Belichick assumed front office and coaching duties in 2000. The Pats selected Logan Mankins at No. 32 overall in 2005 and tabbed Nate Solder with the No. 17 pick in 2011. Sony Michel destined for greatness with Patriots … [Read more...] about New England Patriots news: First-round pick Isaiah Wynn signs contract (report)
