New England will host Ohio State offensive tackle Reid Fragel on a visit, according to Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net. It’s almost as if Fragel was built to one day join the Patriots. He not only played under Urban Meyer with the Buckeyes, but he’s also a tight end turned offensive tackle.
The 6-foot-8 Fragel played tight end at 280 pounds his first three years at Ohio State before adding 20 pounds and switching to right tackle his senior season. Meyer named an award after him for players that come out of nowhere to shine.
Fragel also has visits planned with the Lions, Bears, Dolphins, Giants and Bengals. He’s expected to be a mid-round pick.
