Dalton Keene has the potential to be a valuable piece of the New England Patriots offense.
The former Virginia Tech tight end showed glimpses of all the above during a training video in which he was working out with Patriots fullback Jakob Johnson.

The Patriots reportedly pushed back their rookie reporting date, but Dalton Keene has been in Mass. for at least a week. Here he is training today with Jakob Johnson and @sidelinehustle. Also has worked with the Stidham/Hoyer/Sanu crew. (vid via @OwenM33) pic.twitter.com/LfLLnphxJ2

The Patriots tight end group certainly could use a boost from last season, part of the reason New England double-dipped at the position with a pair of Day 2 NFL Draft picks.
It’ll be interesting to see how Keene, along with fellow draftee Devin Asiasi, can integrate themselves into the Patriots offense, especially with a less-than-ideal preseason.
The Patriots are scheduled to report to training camp July 28.
