Takeaways from Patriots OTA: 1. The top four WRs were out, so rookies Demario Douglas and Kayshon Boutte stepped up; 2. LG Cole Strange and OLB Anfernee Jennings were engaged well after a play, and DT Christian Barmore swung his arm as emotions rose. Strange and Barmore didn't practice after that; 3. Fifth-round G Atonio Mafi had top reps; 4. Top pick Christian Gonzalez aligned opposite returning starter Jonathan Jones at CB; 5. Mac Jones' comfort stood out when the offense was playing fast.

A nice New England college football story is unfolding: University of Rhode Island WR Ed Lee has agreed to terms with the Patriots, according to a source. The 5-foot-8, 180-pound Lee has been a Patriots fan since he was 8. He was timed at 4.46 in the 40-yard dash, took part in the Patriots' local pro-day tryouts before the draft, and totaled 56 catches for 908 yards and 5 TDs as a redshirt senior last season. The 908 yards led the Colonial Athletic Association.
