It looks as if New England has given the younger Belichick a new role

."The New England Patriots’ defensive staff is undergoing a major transformation this offseason: gone are signal caller/linebackers coach Brian Flores Youth Devin McCourty Jerseys , defensive line coach Brendan Daly, and cornerbacks coach Josh Boyer. Their departures to the Miami Dolphins (Flores, Boyer) and Kansas City Chiefs (Daly) left safeties coach Steve Belichick as the lone returning position coach from last year’s defensive staff.However, it now looks as if Belichick himself will have a new role moving forward: according to New England’s pre-draft press release, he has moved to take over Boyer’s old spot working with the cornerbacks. No other moves were announced, despite former Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo already confirming that he has been added to the defensive coaching staff — presumably to work with the linebackers — as well.Steve Belichick meanwhile Devin McCourty Jerseys Stitched , will change roles after working with the safeties for the previous three seasons. Before that, the Rutgers alumnus and son of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick spent four years as a coaching assistant. With him moving into Boyer’s former role, New England now needs to find a new safeties coach. 2018’s coaching assistants Brian Belichick, DeMarcus Covington and Mike Pellegrino are the most likely candidates for the job.The other vacant positions, meanwhile, remain open as well: New England still needs a new defensive signal caller after the surprising resignation of Greg Schiano and also has not yet announced a defensive line coach yet. In case the aforementioned Jerod Mayo takes over as a defensive assistant and not a position coach right away , the Patriots will also need to hire a new linebackers coach.[UPDATE, 8/3/19] It looks like the Patriots will not move Belichick to cornerbacks coach: according to the Providence Journal’s Mark Daniels, the team made a mistake in its press release New England goes after a Clemson edge defender in Kiper’s final mock draft."The 2019 NFL draft is only nine hours away, which means that now is the time for the last mock drafts to get published. Among the analysts to do so — on a related note: look for colleague Michael McDermott’s scenario to go online this afternoon — is ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr, who unveiled his final mock earlier today. For the New England Patriots, who will pick at #32 White Julian Edelman Jerseys , it presents a change compared to Kiper’s previous attempts at predicting the draft.While the veteran draft guru addressed the offensive side of the ball in his last few mocks, he went to the defense in his latest and has the Patriots bolster their pass rush:One of the best edge defenders in this year’s draft class, Clelin Ferrell would be a day one starter in New England and form the core of the team’s positional rotation together with Michael Bennett, Deatrich Wise Jr. and John Simon. As such, the soon-to-be 22-year-old would see extensive playing time in year one and help the Patriots fill the void created by the departure of standout defender Trey Flowers.The comparisons with Flowers go beyond the fact that they play the same position, however: like the ex-Patriot Julian Edelman Jerseys 2019 , Ferrell projects to be a versatile playmaker at the next level capable of lining up in multiple techniques across the defensive line. He also is as technically sound as any edge rusher to enter the draft in 2019, and has outstanding hand usage as well as a wide variety of pass-rushing moves.Not everything about the Clemson product stands out, though, which is why he could very well be available when the Patriots pick at #32: his burst and follow-up steps are limited and could hinder him against athletically superior players at the next level. But despite being somewhat of a boom-or-bust product, Ferrell would be a tremendous pick for New England at the end of the first round given his upside and ability to become an impact player right away.
