Apr 14, 2020

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 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.

Dantzler let up just 14 catches on 29 targets for 222 yards with a touchdown and interception in 2019, per Pro Football Focus. He let up just one touchdown and had five interceptions in his entire three-year college career.
