That type of credible work goes a long way when considering what media voices to listen to most in the build-up to the draft.
That story is passed along because in an Insider piece now posted on ESPN.com, McShay shares notebook-type thoughts on some prospects and with which team he believes they'd fit best. The crux of the piece is to account for the fact each team has a distinct system and certain prospects will fit a system more than others.
The Patriots are mentioned once, with McShay identifying Alabama receiver Kevin Norwood as a good mid-round fit. McShay cited Norwood's smarts as one primary factor that he'd thrive in New England.
We wrote a bit more about Norwood in our "beyond the first round" series on Saturday.
