New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick hit the road Wednesday with his new best buddy Bret Bielema.
Bielema, the former head coach of Arkansas and Wisconsin, and Belichick were spotted entering the Alabama pro day together Wednesday by WIAT’s Nic Gulas. Bielema also attended the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine as a representative of the Patriots.
Bielema has extensive knowledge of the SEC from his time at Arkansas.
Here are the top rated Alabama prospects, per NFL Draft Scout:
WR Calvin Ridley, Round 1
CB Minkah Fitzpatrick, Round 1
DT DaRon Payne, Round 1
SS Ronnie Harrison, Round 1-2
OLB Rashaan Evans, Round 1-2
DE DaShawn Hand, Round 2
CB Anthony Averett, Round 2
CB Tony Brown, Round 2-3
P JK Scott, Round 3-4
RB Bo Scarbrough, Round 5
CB Levi Wallace, Round 5
C Bradley Bozeman, Round 6-7
LB Shaun Dion Hamilton, Round 7
WR Robert Foster, Round 7
It’s at least notable the Patriots are continuing their relationship with Bielema after the combine. They have an opening on their defensive coaching staff after Matt Patricia left to become head coach of the Detroit Lions.
