Breaking down Patriots' offensive snaps

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Breaking down the Patriots' offensive snaps from Friday's preseason game against the Eagles:


G/T Jordan Devey -- 91 of 91

G Josh Kline -- 51 of 91

OT Marcus Cannon -- 45 of 91

G Chris Barker -- 43 of 91

T Nate Solder -- 42 of 91

T Cameron Fleming -- 39 of 91

C Dan Connolly -- 35 of 91

C Braxston Cave -- 29 of 91

C Ryan Wendell -- 27 of 91

G Jon Halapio -- 26 of 91

G Logan Mankins -- 22 of 91

T Sebastian Vollmer -- 22 of 91

Quick-hit thought: Devey, a first-year player out of Memphis who spent last season on the practice squad, is getting a long look from the coaching staff, as he has some guard/tackle versatility. Connolly started at center for the second straight week as the competition in the pivot continues to tilt in his direction from a playing-time perspective.


Ryan Mallett -- 39 of 91

Jimmy Garoppolo -- 30 of 91

Tom Brady -- 22 of 91

Quick-hit thought: This was a night to see how Garoppolo responded by entering the game earlier, on the third series, and the second-round pick mostly passed the test by finishing out the first half after Brady's two series. One downer was the inability to spark the two-minute offense at the end of the half. Mallett played the entire second half.


Josh Boyce -- 56 of 91

Brian Tyms -- 42 of 91

Brandon LaFell -- 37 of 91

Kenbrell Thompkins -- 37 of 91

Julian Edelman -- 22 of 91

Wilson Van Hooser -- 13 of 91

Derrick Johnson -- 10 of 91

Danny Amendola -- 10 of 91

Quick-hit thought: The Patriots opened with Thompkins and Edelman as their top two receivers, which meant Amendola played only in three- and four-receiver packages on the first two drives, hence his lower snap total.


Jonas Gray -- 24 of 91

James White -- 24 of 91

Roy Finch -- 16 of 91

Stevan Ridley -- 16 of 91

Shane Vereen -- 7 of 91

Brandon Bolden -- 5 of 91

Quick-hit thought: Ridley didn't play again after his second-quarter fumble (which might have been overturned if challenged). That might have been more about workload than a message from the coaching staff, and we'll be interested to hear Bill Belichick's comments on that later today. Ridley and White were the primary backs in the first half.


Taylor McCuller -- 30 of 91

James Develin -- 21 of 91

Quick-hit thought: This was Develin's kind of night -- one to focus on the running game and establish an edge, which is his niche on the team.


Steve Maneri -- 68 of 91

Quick-hit thought: Maneri was asked to do a lot for a player who just signed Sunday, and there was the inevitable breakdown that led to Cary Williams' pick-six when the depth of Maneri's route was off. But overall, Maneri was part of helping the running game generate positive momentum.
