Lets recap the action.EDTShareTweetShareShare6 winners and 3 losers from the Patriots mandatory minicampGreg M. Cooper-USA TODAY SportsThe New England Patriots mandatory minicamp is in the books, and it certainly was eventful as the reigning world champions practiced on three consecutive days. While the drills were held without pads or any live tackling and are therefore impossible to properly evaluate it is a teaching camp, after all, as Bill Belichick pointed out earlier this week we still got a first glimpse of what the 2019 Patriots might look like.With all that in mind, lets take a look at who positioned themselves well over the last three days and who did not.Winner: WR Maurice HarrisAll but two spots on the Patriots wide receiver depth chart are open, and free agency signing Maurice Harris has a strong case to get one of them at least when judged on his minicamp performances. After all, he was one of the most heavily involved pass catchers over the last three days and used in a variety of ways during team drills: he lined up all over the field, and appeared to be comfortable no matter where he was put. The best sign, however, might be that he was targeted three straight times by Tom Brady during 11-on-11s on Wednesday.Winner: LB Jamie Collins Sr.Jamie Collins turned into a star defender during his first stint with the Patriots because of his outstanding athletic abilities and how the coaching staff used them. It seems as if little has changed: Collins was active all during minicamp as a coverage player and pass rusher. He generally was moved around the formation quite a bit, lining up on and off the line, on the interior and the edge. It will be fun to see how his role develops in training camp, but right now the ex-Brown looks like a key piece on New Englands defense.Loser: WR Dontrelle InmanWhile one offseason addition at wide receiver the aforementioned Harris stood out for his involvement, another did for being virtually invisible during 11-on-11 drills: Dontrelle Inman failed to catch even a single pass in team work this week. While a lot will change over the next few weeks, especially when pads come on during training camp, the current situation does not look favorable for Inman as he seems to be near the bottom of the position depth chart at the moment.Winner: TE Matt LaCosseNo position on the Patriots roster is undergoing a transformation like tight end: with Rob Gronkowski, Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister no longer part of the equation White Eric Rowe Jerseys , all of the spots on the position depth chart are up for grabs. Judging by minicamp, free agency addition Matt LaCosse has his eyes set on one of them. The 26-year-old looked comfortable in his new environment and like the best receiving tight end on the team. As things stand right now, he appears to be the number one tight end.Loser: P Ryan AllenThe incumbent at the Patriots punter position was not bad per se during minicamp its just that his challenger, rookie Jake Bailey, was noticeably better in some areas. Ryan Allen never was the most powerful kicker, but the difference in strength between the two players was obvious on all three days and not helping the veteran keep his job. What might, however, is his consistency and overall well-rounded skill set. It may not be flashy, but it is Allens best bet.Winner: P Jake BaileyWhile not all was perfect, Jake Bailey still showed why the Patriots opted to invest a fifth-round draft pick in him in April: the rookie punter consistently out-performed Allen when it came to hang-time and also appeared to be comfortable doing some directional kicking. He needs to work on his consistency and situational ball placement, but appears to have all the tools to become a successful punter at the next level. And as such, the winner of the current competition.Winner: RB Damien HarrisWith Sony Michel missing minicamp for reasons unknown at the moment, third-round draft selection Damien Harris saw plenty of action as the big back. The rookie was used as the lead option during Wednesdays session that focused more on the ground game, and looked as solid as can be expected given the setting. Safe to say that Harris has taken advantage of Michel being out and be it just in the form of additional reps.Loser: QB Danny EtlingAfter spending his entire rookie season on the Patriots practice squad, Danny Etling saw some competition added to the quarterback room this offseason in the form of fourth-round draft pick Jarrett Stidham. And it seems pretty obvious which of the young passers is higher up on the depth chart, as Etling attempted only twelve passes during team drills this week far fewer than any other quarterback. While things can still trend upwards training camp, Etling appears to be on the outside looking in at the moment.Winner: CB Stephon GilmoreStephon Gilmore is a first-team All-Pro cornerback Eric Rowe Jerseys 2019 , so why should he even be mentioned among the winners of minicamp when his value and role are already established? Because he was just that good during all three practices. The 28-year-olds movements seem effortless and when he was matched up against first-round pick NKeal Harry, he erased him from the equation. But even when going against more experienced options, Gilmore excelled. With the leagues players free to join the NFL, here are six names New England should keep an eye on."WhitePatriots News Opinion and Analysis Contribute!

On Tuesday, reports broke that the league would suspend its operations just eight weeks into its inaugural regular season amidst internal turmoil. Yesterday, it announced that its players were now free to sign with any NFL team and the first players already were able to leave the sinking ship for new jobs in the established league.Of those still available on the open market, some should spark the interest of the New England Patriots as potential low-risk, high-reward options. Lets take a look at six players who should be on the reigning world champions radar and if only for a visit to find out whether or not they actually have something in the NFL tank. Obviously, they should not be expected to be starting material for a team like the Patriots but could carve out depth roles nevertheless.WR Charles JohnsonA seventh-round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2013, Charles Johnson finished as the AAFs leader in passing targets (70), receptions (45), and receiving yards (687) while also catching 5 touchdowns. Playing alongside ex-Patriots quarterback Garrett Gilbert, the Orlando Apollos wideout earned a 123.8 passer rating when targeted and proved that he might be worth a low-level investment as a potential Y-receiver at the next level one at which the 30-year-old has caught 60 passes for 834 yards and 2 scores in three seasons.WR Quinton PattonLike Charles Johnson, Quinton Patton also has smelled NFL air before: as a former fourth-round draft pick, he spent four years with the San Francisco 49ers and caught 73 passes for 880 yards and 1 touchdown in 40 games all while also gaining some experience as a kickoff returner. In the AAF, where he played for the Birmingham Iron White LaAdrian Waddle Jerseys , he caught 33 passes for 372 yards while serving primarily as a deep threat. As such, he could challenge New Englands current receiving depth options.TE Gavin EscobarSelected in the second round of the 2013 draft, Gavin Escobar spent four years with the Dallas Cowboys during which he caught 30 passes for 333 yards and 8 touchdowns before ultimately ending up with the AAFs San Diego Fleet. While his season ended prematurely when he was placed on injured reserve earlier this week due to an undisclosed injury, he has the size and experience to find some success as a receiving tight end.DE Damontre MooreDamontre Moore registered 7.0 sacks second most in the league through eight games as well as an AAF-high 25 quarterback hits. The former New York Giants third-round draft pick, who was let go after numerous violations of team rules, also deflected four passes and forced a pair of fumbles. While the 26-year-old carries some red flags from his past, he has the size (64, 260 lbs) and NFL experience to find success again as a rotational edge rusher at the next level.DB Derron SmithPro Football Focus AAF player of the year, the San Antonio Commander defender has both the range to work as a deep-field safety and the versatility to also play man-to-man coverage. While not outstanding in either category, the former Cincinnati Bengals sixth-round draft pick could be worth a shot after a season during which he proved himself a playmaker: the 27-year-old registered 3 interceptions and 8 pass breakups.K Nick RoseWith Stephen Gostkowski still unsigned, New England might opt to at least explore the AAFs best placekicker as a developmental option or potential challenger once the veteran gets re-signed: former NFL journeyman Nick Rose. Still only 24 years old, Rose had a tremendous season during which he made all 14 of his field goal attempts with a long of 54 yards. While he didnt have to kick the football off one of Gostkowskis strengths in the kickoff-less AAF, Rose showed plenty of potential.
