The New England Patriots are well-stocked at cornerback, but they still reportedly held a video teleconference meeting recently with a 2020 NFL Draft CB prospect.
The Patriots were one of 16 teams who “met virtually” with Mississippi State cornerback Cameron Dantzler, SBNation’s Justin Melo reported last week.
Dantzler, who stands 6-foot-2, 188 pounds, is a third-round prospect, per DraftScout.com. He ran a 4.64-second 40-yard dash with a 34.5-inch vertical leap at the NFL Scouting Combine, but he didn’t complete his workout because of a quad injury. Dantzler supposedly ran a much faster 4.38-second 40-yard dash at his pro day, according to his agency.
With no Pro Days due to the Coronavirus, prospects have been sending teams their virtual Pro Days and workouts. Here is @HailStateFB CB Cam Dantzler?s 4.38 40-yard dash that went to teams via agents Jovan and Roosevelt Barnes of @ISEWorldwide. pic.twitter.com/i3VlHfRrR0
